Immersive experience in the 17th century manor returns. The Key Of Dreams

Anna Kryśkow |

The New Year brings us an amazing new project, created for fans of puzzles and horror. The Key Of Dreams is an extraordinary experience whose main theme is the work of H.P. Lovecraft as well as the other weird fiction horror authors from a bygone era.

Entertainment on his own terms

You may have heard about an earlier similar amazing event by the same team. The project was called The Locksmith's Dreams and was created in 2022 as an attempt to combine a board game, an RPG, a computer game, literature and theater with puzzles. The events called The Locksmith's Dreams took place in an extremely charming place - a 17th-century manor house in the county of Monmouthshire (Wales) called Treowen Manor.

The goal was clear from the beginning - create an experience that would delight people but also defies easy categorization. After the great success of this venture, which I wrote about earlier on Escape Buzz, Ivan Carić - the originator, creator and author of scripts, decided to bring to life another project.

The mystery returns to Treowen Manor

In 2024, puzzle lovers will visit Treowen Manor again. This time, the main theme of this immersive experience will be the horror literature of the early 20th century. The Key Of Dream is inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. Arthur Machen, Charlotte Gilman, M.R. James and more.

Here is a feature length trailer for the Key of Dreams with a voiceover from Andrew Leman (co-founder of the HP Lovecraft Historical Society).

The Key Of Dream is an immersive experience like no other. An event spread over twenty four hours. An historic manor house where fact and fiction rub shoulders over sumptuous meals in the oak clad banqueting hall. Where each glorious vista, snatched musical refrain or hushed conversation with one of the many characters might unlock a moment of revelation.

Neil Patrick Harris recommends The Locksmith's Dream

If the positive opinions of the participants of The Locksmith's Dreams do not convince you, maybe one of the most famous lovers of puzzles and escape rooms, creator of his own board game, American actor and long-time host of the RECON escape room conference - Neil Patrick Harris will! Find out why he said "I will remember it for the rest of my life!"

Here's what he thinks about Ivan's project.

I was born to write - my favorite forms of expression are extensive articles preceded by a long research, and horror stories (for some it’s the same).
