Josie then gave them a contract and told them “wake up” was the password to quit the game at any time. They are all given time to find out the clues, and before starting, they are shown a disgusting video of the inventor who used to live in the house and used to experiment with the dead. Then the game begins and also the trouble they don’t expect at all. They scanned the room and found the clue, and when the door opened, they found themselves in a room filled with clocks.

They believed that this mansion had more than one room. Slowly, they begin to realize that something is wrong with the place, and they are caught in a trap that has no exit. With the game running, Tyler announces the awake code word, and he is forced back and later found hanging from the ceiling. In the end, Karen and Michael were left alive, and all the other participants had died. Even Josie was found badly injured in the cupboard, and he too died in between.

After completing all the clues and a lot of struggle, only the two of them could get out of the escape room because all the other participants had already died. When they came out, they found themselves in the bathroom of the restaurant.

It is the same restaurant they were visiting when their car collapsed on the road. When they try to unlock the car, they find the keys reappearing in the car, instantly telling them the game is not over.
