Fantastic Fest and The Highball are proud to unleash their first ever escape room challenge, the Satanic Panic Room! Produced by Bottleneck Immersive, thrill-seekers find themselves at the mercy of the Devil himself.

  • Tickets are $30 per player, sold in groups of four at $120.
  • Players must be in groups of four -- no more, no less -- at the time of their appointment. Groups of less than four will forfeit their spot with no refunds.
  • Your full group must arrive at The Highball reservation booth at least fifteen minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.
  • Players must be 16 years old or older. Players under the age of 18 MUST have a Parents or Legal Guardian present to sign the waiver and MUST stay throughout the duration of the group's escape room time. Any player under the age of 18 without a parent or legal guardian present will NOT be able to play in the room and will NOT receive a refund.


Packs of four players will be cloaked in ritual garb, blindfolded, and led to a dimly lit chamber. There they’ll be shackled and given 45 minutes to solve a series of exciting, innovative and demonically difficult puzzles in a room steeped in Satanic cult atmosphere. It’s up to each group to search for clues, crack codes, and work as a team to win over the Dark Lord and rule by his side -- or fail and become the demon’s next sacrifice.

The Satanic Panic Room is located within the bowels of The Highball, next to the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar at 1120 South Lamar Boulevard in Austin, TX. The room operates throughout Fantastic Fest, and will continue to the public on weeknights and with full weekend hours into October.

Escape rooms are physical, real life adventures. In the Satanic Panic Room, you’re locked in with a group and have to find your way out. Players must use their wits, find clues, and solve puzzles to unlock the door and escape the room within the time limit. The Satanic Panic Room has been lovingly and demonically engineered by Bottleneck Immersive to create a heart-pounding, fun, and memorable experience. Teams must either break free with a rush of excitement as they race against the clock, or run out of time, where they are ritually sacrificed to appease the Dark Lord.
