Rules

  • No groups larger than 10 people will be allowed to participate.
  • Each group will be assigned a friendly ghost guide that can provide hints and help as is necessary.
  • No child under the age of 7 years old will be allowed to participate due to the nature of the Mystery. There is a possibility for children to be frightened to the point where they would have to exit the game. We want everyone to have an enjoyable time.
  • All team members must be present in order to begin the game. Late entry into the game will not be permitted.
  • All team members must arrive within 10 minutes of the appointed starting time. If your team is late past the 10 minute grace period, the clock will start whether you’re here or not. Being late only cuts down on your time to enjoy and solve the game. If you should arrive late resulting in reduced game playing time, you will not be issued a refund.
  • In the event that your team does not solve the game in the allotted hour time slot, a refund will not be issued.
  • Most of our characters are inspired by real people with some exceptions. The storyline is completely fictional, original to the imaginations of the Opera House staff, and is not based on truth, even though elements of it are historically accurate.
  • Phones are permitted, (i.e. flashlight) however, please refrain from using them to solve puzzles along the way. While we realize some of the puzzles will be challenging, we encourage you to work as a group, it’s much more fun this way!
  • Under no circumstance will anyone be allowed to touch our actors or volunteers for any reason.
  • DO NOT FORCE THE PROPS TO MOVE, UNLOCK, OR OPEN. If they do not give when you attempt to undo the puzzle, try solving it a different way. Do not yank, tug, pull, or break any prop in order to move forward in the storyline. Ghost guides will be able to help after a predetermined amount of time is spent attempting to solve the puzzle.
  • There are no weapons allowed on the premises, as the Opera House is owned and operated by the City of Uvalde, and is government property.
  • ALL WEAPONS USED BY THE ACTORS ARE PROPS.
  • CAN BE MADE WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE — If you cannot use the stairs for any reason, we will need to know in advance to make necessary changes to the game so that all team members can participate. Almost every room in the Opera House will be utilized as part of the storyline. Stairs are included in this. We have an elevator, but there is one area in the game that is not accessible by elevator. Therefore, advance notice is required so we can accommodate all team members!

Cancellation Policy

Groups must cancel on or before Friday, October 22nd to receive a refund, less processing fees. Partial refunds at the discretion of the Opera House Manager.
