I did Houdini's Hidden Workshop. The room is meticulously decorated in 1920's style. The actress/gamemaster in the room put on a fantastic performance for us! The puzzles are super cool, and they are all relevant to the theme and story of the room. The puzzling,...More

A must do if you're in San Diego. We all had a great time and a blast trying to solve the case and set free Houdini. We will definitely be back for the other rooms.
