Our group was divided in to three teams. There are multiple rooms with different challenges. Our team was in last place but we survived. Once you get the hang of how to locate and use clues, then it gets the team moving. It is mentally...More

I went here with my work team and we escaped! It was a super fun adventure requiring a lot of teamwork and critical thinking. All the puzzles are cleverly designed and will really stretch your noodle!

I think this is now my #1 room of around 45 I've done. This is not a beginner room. For fans of a complex and teamwork centered escape, this is the best! The theme of Teddy Roosevelt is very well done. I don't want to...More

The escape room experience was great. The challenge was just hard enough to make the victory really special. I would highly recommend this great family bonding experience! I would not recommend the challenge for young children but teenagers will have a blast!

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!
