Dracula, Escape the Castle
Hello, my dear Baffled readers, last week I was invited to attend and cover the Dracula event as an insider. Unfortunately, at that time the Barcelona sun warmed my skin. But I still got my hand on few behind the scene details so you can have a look at what is going on in the show.
Hosted by renowned TV presenter, Brendan Moar (“The Renovators”), the series, based on the escape room trend, features brave contestants from around the world, as they race against time to escape Dracula’s infamous castle in Transylvania, before the ‘Lord of Darkness’ traps them forever! Dracula, Escape the Castle will run consecutively on TV every Sunday at 9pm for ten episodes.
Dracula, Escape the Castle is an original, bloodcurdling game show which sees two duos trapped within an authentic Romanian castle, with only one night to escape ‘Dracula’. The contestants vary from lovers and family members to best friends and colleagues. Locked inside the castle walls by a charismatic host, Brendan Moar, duos must escape by completing various mental and physical challenges.
In each episode, the two couples face three stages of being locked in the room, with the ultimate goal of escaping in the fastest time. The fastest couple to escape the first two rooms, gain a 30-second time advantage in the final stage. This final is a frantic race to ignite a giant bat silhouette on the castle courtyard.
Dracula is a game of skill, courage and trust: skill to escape the rooms; courage to find clues; and trust in your fellow teammate. To survive, contestants will have to utilise their skills and face their worst fears.
