What is an EscapeSF Real-Time Room Escape Game?
This is like a computer game, but everything is real. Everything has meaning. You find clues and solve puzzles to discover the room’s secrets and, finally, escape! Each game has a goal: you may have to return a stolen painting, escape from Alcatraz, or beat a mafia clan. You only need to figure out where to begin, sort out the logic of the puzzles and clues, find the right items, use them correctly, and all in under an hour. Are you up to it?
Why choose EscapeSF?
Maybe you even tried playing other real-life room escape games, but we built something more intense, with a heavy focus on design and setting to immerse you into the story, with an addition of some high-tech tricks behind the scenes to make the magic happen.
Who can play?
Our rooms are designed for a small group of 2+ people. It is fun for friends, for a special date, or as a team-building event. We are happy to have families with children ages 8 and up for the Antique room and 12+ for the Escape from Alcatraz and 14+ “Blind Tiger” games.
Children ages 8 to 17 must be accompanied by at least 1 adult and children under the age of 8 are not permitted to attend.
Please download and bring a signed copy of the release form.
How much time is required?
The whole experience lasts around 1.5 hours (including the introduction and the solution walkthrough). Please, arrive 15 minutes before the game starts. The quest exit door will be locked for 60 minutes and if you succeed, the doors open and you win the game. If you do not finish in time – the game is over (but we will still let you out).
What is a number of players per team?
All of our current room escape games (Escape from Alcatraz, Escape from Antique Room and Blind Tiger) have been designed for teams of two up to five players. This is based on the number of clues and obstacles that need to be solved within 60 minutes. However, teams of six have also taken up the challenge and had great fun!
We already had many teams of six that enjoyed EscapeSF, therefore, six people can either book two games for two teams of three (the most recommended option) or book just one game for five players and pay $28 for the 6th player when you get onsite.
NO. We can’t “squeeze” in the 7th person – that’s 40% over the designed capacity.
Do I need anything special? Is it safe?
You do not need to be a Superman to win this game; you do need to explore, discover, analyze, brainstorm and think outside the box. Here is a link to some helpful Tips & Tricks to Win Escape Room Games
We take a matter of safety very seriously. All of the equipment is low voltage, all of the cabinets are bolted down, all of the games have ‘emergency exit’ button on the exit door.
Can I take my phone with me in to the game environment?
Due to the nature of the room escape games no recordings can be taken inside the game rooms. That includes (without limitation) the use of mobile phones, recording devices (video and/or audio) and cameras. The use of such a device in the room is not permitted at any time. We expect visitors not to disclose any details of the game directly or indirectly to the public. Lets not spoil the game for other guests.
Is it scary?
No. There is nothing that is designed to scare you nor anyone to jump out at you.

How difficult are the games?
The games are hard, but not impossible.
We tried to keep the same level of difficulty for our games. However, somehow some teams found one game easy than others, but it really depends on a team on their ability to communicate with each other, working together, delegating and so on.
Here is a guesstimate of the difficulty levels:
Alcatraz – 6.5 out of 10
Antique room – 7 out of 10
Blind Tiger – 8 out of 10
SpaceBus – 7 out of 10 (with a team of 6)
