Escape from the Puzzle Room in San Francisco 301

A bomb has been set on your body. Defuse it or die!

You awake in an unfamiliar place, greeted by a mysterious message: “Welcome to the Puzzle Room. Are you clever enough to escape from my game?” The door is locked, and you find a bomb has been strapped to you.

The room is full of weird patterns and mysterious codes with no key in sight. Suddenly, a video plays in front of you. In it, the mastermind behind your situation is revealed, who delivers a deadly ultimatum. “You have 60 minutes to find a way out. Otherwise… BOOM! Good luck!”

Can you and your 10 teammates escape from this puzzling room alive?

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. The 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 or anything else that will slow you down. A wheelchair would not be accessible due to the nature of game structure.
7. If you want training before the actual game, google “Escape Game”. There are many Escape games on the internet 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.
10. Children under 13 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, and those under 6 years of age play for free! All players under 18 will need a parent/guardian’s signature on the safety waiver in order to play. Click here to download a waiver!
