Based on Lionsgate’s blockbuster horror film franchise, the SAW Escape Experience
will be one of the largest immersive escape experiences in the world
Egan Productions, creative masterminds behind Las Vegas’ top-ranked haunted attraction Fright Dome, has partnered with Hollywood film studio and global content leader Lionsgate to bring to life the world’s first immersive escape experience themed after the blockbuster SAW films. SAW is one of the most successful horror franchises ever, grossing nearly $1 billion at the worldwide box office. The Las Vegas venue is set to open on January 26, 2018.
‘The Official SAW Escape Experience’ will feature numerous themed rooms where guests will go toe-to-toe with the notorious Jigsaw. After entering what appears to be an old, abandoned meat-packing plant, guests will be plunged into a world of traps and puzzles where they will need to work together to escape not just a single room, but the twists and turns of an entire building. The iconic SAW bathroom scene will be just one of the many highlights along the way, as visitors are put to the test in what has been designed to be an entirely immersive experience and one of the largest escape attractions in the world.
