They enter the escape room, but something is off. The usual book that is removable that hides the skeleton key is gone. The usual emcee is out and someone else is hosting. Suddenly, they realize they are trapped, and they need to actually escape.

As they make their way through this actual disaster, they face a variety of issues as they are scared completely out of their wits. They realize that the escape room has been taken over by actual villains and the only way out is to outsmart and defeat the villains. The phones lines are dead, cell service is down, doors are locked. How will they get out? Will Loretta ever get her birthday cake?
