Escape the Palace is a private puzzle game available for groups of 50 or more players. It is an exciting and unique team building activity. While the goal is to escape, this is not an escape room; rather it is a puzzle hunt game inspired by escape rooms. Escape the Palace that can either be booked as a stand alone game or as part of a larger offsite at the Palace of Fine Arts.
Participants will split up into smaller teams of 6-8. Team members will work together on several puzzles, collecting answers for a final puzzle, all while racing against each other to “escape” the Palace first! This will be a fairly active game that will require teams to bounce around the designated areas to solve the puzzles and use different decoding machines in order to progress through the game. Escape the Palace lasts approximately two hours, but each team’s final time will differ.
This game is only available inside the Palace of Fine Arts. Certain elements of Escape the Palace and its set up are customizable. Palace Games staff will facilitate the game and provide assistance to teams as needed.
To ensure the best game set up, we recommend renting space at the Palace of Fine Arts for a larger offsite. The Palace has a full suite of offsite facilities, including a theater, multiple break out rooms and many other unique spaces. Rented space can be used for meetings, presentations, catered meals, cocktail receptions, in additional to other activities!
