Great Scott! Mystery Rooms are located inside the Storyteller's Cottage in Simsbury, Connecticut.
The Storyteller's Cottage is unique venue for literary events and adventures! Our vintage Victorian house is the home of charming literary events, writer's workshops and retreats, storytelling events, author salons, unique literary-themed mystery rooms, and much more.
Have you ever wanted to immerse yourself in your favorite book? Step into a world of imagery, doppelgängers, suspense and foreshadowing at the Storyteller's Cottage. In our vintage Victorian home filled with antiques, you'll feel as if you've become a character in one of your favorite novels! Whether you join a literary society (book club), participate in an event, or play one of our mystery rooms, you'll feel as if you're finally home. Quench your thirst for the never-ending story, find your tribe, and celebrate cerebral endeavors in an enchanting setting.
We created Great Scott! Mystery Rooms so that you can fully immerse yourself in your favorite novels, combined with the invigorating thrill of solving mysteries. You will have one hour to solve a challenging puzzle in the most charming location. Discover why that famous British mystery writer went missing in "The Dame Disappears", or explore the "Legend of the Fairy Queen", or join "The Detective's Dinner Party." You can even combine an escape game with a birthday tea party or themed snack in our kitchen or dining room.
Why is Great Scott! different from other escape rooms?
Our location in a historic house helps our players feel completely immersed in another world. All of our rooms are inspired by our favorite novels, which makes us more of a literary activity, as opposed to a scary, thrill room, or highly-technical room full of gadgets. We love vintage style and classic mysteries, so our games are elegant and fanciful, with a whimsical nod to our people, the book nerds! Your progress through the room will feel like turning pages of a book and uncovering new elements of a story.
