Black & Ghost Tour

18 reviews
Experience the spookiest of Pittsburgh’s Downtown! Get to see outstanding historic landmarks (often beautifully lit up in the darker and colder months) during the quiet evening hours and learn about their history and which spirits lurk in them. Don't worry about picking up any ghostly travelers; the entirety of the tour takes place outdoors! Ready to get chills and be scared by some obscure ghost stories? - Our tour guides are locals who truly love their city, they are very knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile for you if you are particularly interested in something. Groups are kept small to provide a personal experience. Kids and dogs are welcome as well!

My husband and I have probably completed 25+ escape rooms. We did the Library challenge here and it was the simplest room as far as tech/layout we have done. THESHA was an awesome room host and kept the room moving. It was nice having someone in the room with us. My husband and I enjoyed playing the fuse and air hockey tables before our room started. Plus, they offer drinks at the end. What place does that? I would recommend this facility.

Thank you very much for recommending us. Sherlock's Library is a great introductory room for our guests but since you have so much experience, I would recommend you come back in and try The President's Bunker! It is a great mix of tech and puzzles. We are also happy to hear you enjoyed your Room Monitor, we strive to provide the best experience possible for our guests!

We visited The Bunker at The Great Escape Room. It was fun and pretty challenging. The attendant was very friendly and professional. We would definitely try one of the other rooms.

We did the presidential bunker. This was the first night available for this room and we were told that this was a 'soft opening'. Overall the room was pretty good and very challenging. There were a couple minor hiccups with locks responding but i am sure they will get that fixed quickly. This place offered at least 2 other rooms to escape from and they had Foosball and air hockey in the waiting room. Pretty nice while you are waiting for your time slot.
