Catalepsy: A medical condition in which a person’s body becomes stiff and stops moving, as if dead.

With this psychomotor disorder affected people were sometimes given for death and buried alive during the 19th century which is approved by nail marks found inside the coffins after exhumations.

What a horrible fantasy!
Have you ever imagined your own funeral? What is it like to lie in a coffin, be driven to the cemetery and be lowered into the ground? How many mourners will come? What music will be played? Will someone cry for you?

Horror Box has answers to some of these questions with the extreme escape “Catalepsia”.

After all, you’re not alone!
You start your last journey as couple and have exactly 30 minutes to escape from the smallest escapegame in the world. Otherwise, this will be a very hot box ?.

Horror Box, the creators of Jigsaw and Ouija, do their very best to make this experience as realistic as possible.

You can also actively influence the ceremony by “personalizing” it during booking. Coffin ⚰️, flowers ?, wreaths?, favorite song ?, funeral card ?, farewell words ?, urn ⚱️ … the full program can be configured down to the smallest detail ⛪️?.

Catalepsia is the best buried alive scenario that I have played so far – also because of the interesting puzzles that can only be solved through teamwork and a lot of communication – and I can recommend it to anyone who want to have an extrem experience and is not claustrophobic.

My advice: Don’t panic and breathe calmly, for the air is running short ?
