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

A first encounter with the educational, fun, and challenging adventure of escape rooms. Our two family accompaniers were veterans, so our path was smoothed. The set up was superb - caused us to cooperate, gave us a shared sense of accomplishment when we made progress....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!
