 Nightwalker Caverns Escape Room Adventures are high quality, uniquely designed, totally immersive escape room experiences which involve 4-10 Players who must act as teams to solve complex puzzles and riddles.  These Best of San Diego escape rooms feature state of the art electronic puzzle locking systems specifically designed for each escape room.  Larger groups can book multiple rooms and compete as teams.  The players will control the level of difficulty of the game by deciding whether or not to utilize verbal or written clues, which are provided by a live actor Clue Master or made available in specially designed boxes located inside the individual escape rooms.

​Designed and operated by Shane Watton and his daughter, Tiffany Watton, Nightwalker Caverns Escape Room Adventures emerged in 2014 as a haunted house with actors performing parody skits of horror shows that were a little bit scary and just the right amount of funny.  By 2016 the show had morphed into a year-round business incorporating elements of fantasy, horror, and science fiction genres into 3 action-packed escape adventures.  From its outset, Nightwalker Caverns was the first local escape room business to combine live theater with special effects and the latest technology.  Overall, the custom-built, nonlinear games provide the perfect backdrop where Players can laugh, share ideas, and collectively work together.  Whether visiting as a group of friends or participating in a corporate team building activity, Nightwalker Caverns' ongoing commitment to new design concepts and wildly fun experiences will turn your preconceived notions about escape rooms upside down.  Prepare yourself for the Best San Diego escape room adventure business.

All players must sign an Accident Waiver and Release of Liability form before entering the premises.

All bookings are private -- we do not mix groups.  If you book for less than the maximum number, we block out the other spots.  If you want to bring additional Players, they can pay at the door and sign in with your group.

Your escape room adventure begins with a live actor briefing to set the scene.  You will then be led into the escape room and the clock begins to run.  If you get stuck -- don't stress!  We allow Players as many clues as they want and need.  However, if you came with friends and didn't escape, perhaps you should select different friends to bring with you if you want to try another room.  Let's face it -- all of us have "some friends" who are fun -- but totally clueless.  On a more serious note, we want you to have a great time -- and we want you to escape!  Our focus is for Players to have a lot of fun -- our games are not designed to stump the Players!!  Plan on spending about 75 - 120 minutes from the time you enter our facility. 

Please be sure to arrive a few minutes in advance of your time!  We offer both on-street and FREE off-street parking.  Also, be sure to finish any food or drinks you may have with you as they are not permitted inside the escape room.  If you're having a birthday party, we will be happy to assist you setting up your party after the show. 

You will not be permitted to bring purses, jackets, backpacks, cell phones, electronic devices or cameras inside the escape room.  Photography or recording of any kind is forbidden by players until after the game is completed.  For players who do bring personal items into the facility, we provide a cart where all items must be placed and the cart is brought into the room with the players.  The cart is in full view of all players during the time the escape room experience is occurring.  Unlike other escape room facilities, you may take photos after the show inside the rooms.  Please feel free to post your photos on Instagram, Facebook, Trip Advisor, etc.  -- and be sure to tag us!!  We believe our rooms are the Best San Diego escape room adventures, so we want you to share your photos with the world!!

Further, we hope you won't need to leave the escape room for any reason prior to the expiration of the time for the escape.  If you do, the game will proceed without you, but you can re-join the game provided the other Players agree.  No additional time is added to the game if a Player decides to leave the game for any reason. 

Nightwalker Caverns has installed night vision security cameras inside the escape rooms and party area.  Security cameras are also located in the common areas outside the building.   By entering, players agree to being photographed and/or videotaped. 

As a final note, when you leave the facility, please do not spoil the fun or intrigue of the game for other players by revealing answers to puzzles and clues..

The First and Only Spoof on Escape Rooms and Haunted Houses in San Diego

(and maybe in California or maybe in the whole world)


If you are one of those people who enjoy horror and also enjoy laughter, then our SPOOF on escape rooms and haunted houses is just for you and designed to make you scream and laugh harder than any escape room around.  For the true escape room fanatic, who has "tried them all" and is ready for something new, why not take your adventure seeking self another step further?  Why not try something really different?  Why not try a parody based, escape room experience where you're actually part of the show? 

No special skills are needed in the Nightwalker Caverns Escape Room Adventures.  However, you will need to put 4 of your 5 senses into play -- along with a truly "dark" sense of humor.  We ask you not to taste any of the props -- no matter how tempted you may be.  Just be prepared to keep an open mind, while you laugh and scream as you experience this macabre-style spoof on escape rooms and haunted houses ... and even if you don't win, it's 1 hour of total immersion into a fun filled parody.  When it comes to San Diego escape rooms, don't just keep asking yourself, "Hasn't it all been done to death?"  Go the opposite direction and experience a unique San Diego escape room haunted house spoof! 

Keep reading for a description of our rooms!

(Level 2 - DOWNRIGHT HARDER THAN HECK) Players must work together while separated to solve. 

Let's face it -- if you've already visited a score of San Diego escape rooms (or nationwide escape rooms) and you've explored every haunted house ever built at Halloween -- and find yourself wondering lately if your passion for escape rooms and haunted houses has turned into your true "destiny and calling," then perhaps you need to consult with our fortune teller, Confusion, who foresees a totally different future for you.  Perhaps your true destiny is to become another actor trapped in a cage on the Clownatorium Carnival Midway where you can be endlessly pranked and forever at the mercy of sarcastic and rude clowns. 

Be forewarned - Clownatorium-2 Upside Down is just a little bit scary and a whole lot funny. 

If you're easily offended, then Clownatorium-2 is not for you.

Although it's a SPOOF on escape rooms and haunted houses, it is an actual puzzle game that the "Regular Clown" (like the majority of us who don't over-think things) can decipher.  WARNING:  Players are forced to work together by the design and dynamics of this San Diego escape room.  Remember, this is a Player controlled, level-of-difficulty room.  The Players must decide whether or not to use clues.  With an unlimited number of clues available, the only question becomes, "Will the Players use the Clues or not?"  The Players are in total control of this fun-filled escape room -- so win or lose -- the Players determine whether or not they will forever be forced to entertain carnival goers.  A live actor is in the room at all times to help if you need assistance to navigate your way through this unique and thrilling escape experience.  

And remember --  you don't have to be a genius to escape 

CLOWNATORIUM-2 Upside Down,  you just need to THINK LIKE A CLOWN!

Room Capacity:  10 players   --  Minimum Number of Players:  4  ---   Time:     90 minutes

This is a LEVEL 2 (VERY, VERY CHALLENGING) puzzle oriented Spoof.

Clownatorium-2 Upside Down is not recommended for players under 12 as it is dark, and its subject matter may be too scary

for younger players.  Additionally, younger players cannot contribute anything to the game as the puzzles

are designed with adult players in mind.  Players under 18 need a person over 18 to remain on the premises. 



A whimsical spoof on finding the Grail!  Getting captured by aliens creates a feeling of dread and the urgent need to escape after Players find themselves being transported through time.  Players will engage in a scavenger hunt puzzle requiring they find the Grail to unlock their captors' space ship. 

This unique San Diego escape room is suitable for tweens, teens, and adults with a sense of adventure -- but don't be fooled -- the puzzles are challenging enough for even the most skilled escape room enthusiasts.  Escape game players are left to the task of solving their escape from a time travelling spaceship and solving one of history's mysteries -- finding the Holy Grail.  Then, the escape game players must find their way back into the space ship to return home.
