Behind the scenes at Murder Co. an Interview with Jon Cooke and Ted Dougherty

MURDER CO, was announced March 1st to the happiness of horror fans and escape room enthusiasts alike. The new, permanent escape experience is the brainchild of Haunt industry legends Jon Cooke and Ted Dougherty. The aim is to turn the attraction industry on its head by offering something totally new, and brutal for fans of horror puzzlers.

Today we share our interview with the two men behind Murder Co. and get a closer look at what to expect when the venue opens April 5th in Upland, California.


MURDER CO is more than simply solving puzzles, combinations or finding keys to break out of a locked room. The high-level adventure incorporates unique entertainment elements matched with intense scenes of harsh violence, pitfalls, and physicality. Groups of up to eight members find themselves trapped in a gore and chaos-filled race for survival.

MURDER CO: A high-priced, high-society underground black market sports ring enabling voyeuristic individuals to privately witness a live murder take place. Beyond the scant rumors found on the Black Web, not much is known about the enigmatic company. It is only after guests sign-up that the specific details of the ominous Murder Co will be revealed. If you’re still brave enough to make the plunge after signing a waiver, dangerous mystery awaits.
