Real Escape Game in San Francisco vol.5

Escape from the Magic Show

Will you be able to untie your hands and escape?

You are seated around a table. Your hands are tied to the people beside you.
On the table in front of you is a packet of bizarre puzzles.
A magician on the stage is performing some sort of sinister magic.
The people around you look baffled — will you be able to escape before the clock runs out?


All tickets are sold out!! Thanks!!


Thank you for waiting, everybody! The next Real Escape Game SF vol. 5, “Escape from the Magic Show” will take place at the San Francisco’s architecturally stunning venue, The Regency Center. You will see actual Magic at the beginning of the game and your hands will be bound to your fellow teammates with around 45 inch ropes. There is nothing to fear, as you will be released upon escaping the room at the end of the game. Enjoy the great atmosphere and good luck!

* A magic show will be a part of the game itself as a clue, but it is not the main attraction for this event.
Team size is usually 6 people, but might be required to change depending on total participants at each game. There will be multiple teams in the same room and all players will join one of each team. This is different format from Real Escape ‘Room’. Please arrive early if you want to be placed on a team with your friends. In some cases, we might need to shuffle participants around to ensure team fairness. Single players are also welcome. We believe that this game can be even more enjoyable when played with new people.

1. This is a game event that requires you to use your detective’s mind and your powers of deduction to escape.

2. Gather items, find codes, and solve puzzles to find the key and escape the room.

3. You can team up with other players. Strategize and cooperate – more heads are definitely better than one.

4. The amount of time you have to escape might be too short. However, failure to do so is nothing to be embarrassed about. Those mysteries are quite tough.

5. Do not worry if you are unable to escape within the time limit. We will still allow you to leave, keeping you in the room against your will is breaking the law.

6. Detective style clothes might help to sharpen your mind. Wear comfortable clothes but refrain from wearing heels.

7. If you want training before the actual game, google “Escape Game”. There are many Escape games on the net you can try.

8. Please do not spoil the fun for other participants by telling them the answers to the puzzles. That is not cool.

9. The prize is the priceless moment when you finally find the solution and everything falls into place.
