The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.

The story was great and the puzzles were well thought out and very appropriate for the story. The staff was amazing and rooms and technology were incredible! Palace escape rooms are the best we've ever experienced in 3 states!

Beyond expectations!
Jun 2021 • Friends
Surprised at how well we were able to do as a beginner group - but it’s clear that if you’ve done escape rooms before you’d be challenged. We can in June 2021 and were the first group back after COVID restricted access. Totally felt normal and the staff was awesome. Did this for a birthday party group of 8 of us. Highly recommend!

Bully escape!
Feb 2020 • Family
We’ve done escape rooms before but nothing compared to the Roosevelt room at palace games. They were all very welcoming and made sure our experience was stellar. Our host Evan gave us subtle guidance when needed. The clues and rooms were high quality and engaged the whole group. We’re all still talking to each other! I would highly recommend this experience.

A really good escape room!
Jan 2020
I have done at least 5 escape rooms, and this one was easily the most involved. There were 14 of us, and we all started solving different pieces at the same time. We were mostly experienced game players though, so we figured out pretty quickly what they wanted us to do, finding out HOW to do it was our challenge. Talking about it after was fun, too, because you got filled in on what YOU missed while you were doing one thing and another thing was happening in a different section. It is a bit pricey for an escape room, but hey, it's SanFrancisco, everything's expensive.
Listen carefully to your guide.

Houdini ESCAPE so challenging & fun!
Dec 2019
We've played several escape games now, and as "seasoned" veteran, I feel able to at least comment on the quality of the puzzles. We were in a room designed for up to 10 players, so there were more puzzles than the six of us were able to solve in 90m. However, the experience was SO enjoyable, we didn't care. The puzzles were interactive in a way that is somewhat rare, and quite educational. They required collaboration among teammates in a way that made them even more rewarding when completed. As a group, we loved the whole experience!

Engaging and surprising!

The Edison escape room was impressively engaging, with high production values and fun surprises along the way. The Escape the Palace experience was a well-coordinated fun experience for a larger corporate group too.

Fun event!
Nov 2019
The room was definitely tough, but my team had a great time working to unlock the clues to get us through.

In my opinion, the instructor gave us a bit too many tips along the way. I'm not sure if it's because someone on our team had to leave after an hour to catch a flight or if they always do that. In the end, we escaped (woohoo!), but I'm not sure we would have made it out without those tips.
