I enjoyed the puzzles. Our group ended up skipping around, thinking we were done with the first element. We had a group of 9 with 3 kids, so our attention span was all over the place. We somehow managed to get some puzzles by guessing it, rather than using the actual board/clue. Luckily we were the last group that day, so we chose to finish the room and were only halfway done from all the puzzles when the original countdown was done and we escaped with a little less than 146 mins.

Puzzle heavy room that is non linear, making it great for large groups. Love the nostalgic period set and theme. Recommend groups of 5 or more.

A really puzzle packed game with tons of keys, searching, deciphering and recognizing patterns. For the sake of the story the puzzles do stay in theme. We played with a full group of 8 and was still enjoyable. However, the style of puzzles and room flow really show how old this rooms creation is. Very much a classic style escape room at a high tier execution level.

This room opened several years ago but holds up exceptionally well, with great puzzles galore and several strong moments. Alot of pen and paper, plenty of non-linear action. Felt very much like a traditional puzzle hunt but also with physical interactions. A bit expensive for what it is in all honesty - but objectively a really good time!

First room to try at Palace of Fine Arts. Top notch with great interactive puzzles that were unique to Houdini’s story. A must play for those who are experienced escape artists. Warning: there are some jump scares and walking through the dark at times.

Great puzzles and a number of very surprising reveals. Palace games always does it right.

This was actually my very first escape room! Probably not the best for first timers because like the other palace games rooms, it can be a little overwhelming and challenging, however it was a great introduction to my addiction! The puzzles were very innovative. There were a few moments which were surprising, but not necessarily scary. Had a lot of fun and staff were wonderful.

This room might be showing its age just a bit but the puzzles are still great. Almost completely non-linear, this game has a lot of puzzles available to your group at any time and can support 6 enthusiasts playing together. Not scary.
