This escape room is amazing! It is definitely the most sophisticated escape room that I've done... it is like being inside a historically themed video game! So much fun!

We did this as a team building event from our company. We had the best time trying to work out the puzzles, while not trying to strangle certain colleagues. It was well paced and challenging and we're already planning a return trip to try out...More

It's a testament to how good this experience was that we still talk about it, months later. We've done escape rooms all over the world and the Edison room is the best we've ever done. I'm not one for physical puzzles but the technology and...More

We bit the bullet and paid $800 to do the Edison and Houdini rooms here! It was a lot of money, BUT with that said, the rooms were incredible! Houdini had a lot of puzzles to solve and move through. Keep going. This room uses...More

Amazing escape room. So well designed! It’s quite difficult, probably best with 6-8 people. The staff is also very nice and accommodating. Highly recommended!!

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.

Hi Phyllis! The Houdini and Roosevelt Rooms are definitely not creepy! A 9 and 11 year old are definitely welcome to join a group of adults and will have a nice time!
