Palace Games escape rooms and puzzle hunts are fun and unique team building and problem solving experiences located in the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco!
When playing The Great Houdini Escape Room or The Roosevelt Escape Room a group of 6 to 12 colleagues must work together, communicate, and collaborate in order to solve the mysteries of the room and discover the secret way out. It’s challenging – but a lot of fun.
Teams will want to discuss what they did right — and what they missed — after the experience. Did they listen to each other? Did they work together? How did they determine who would do what during the experience? Did they collaborate to solve puzzles? How did each team member contribute? What may have tripped them up?
ESCAPE THE PALACE
Escape the Palace is puzzle hunt game designed for large groups of 50 or more players! This game takes place inside different areas of the Palace of Fine Arts.
The group will be split into smaller teams of 6 to 8 players that will solve puzzles, use special decoding machines, and try to escape first. This is a great team building activity that comes with a healthy dose of competition. Participants will feel challenged, but will have a lot of fun working their way through the game!
Escape the Palace can be set up as a stand alone game or as part of a larger event at the Innovation Hangar. This game is subject to the availability of the venue. For more information click here.
If your team is larger than 12, your group will need to be split up into two or more teams and play separate games. The Roosevelt Escape Room and The Great Houdini Room can be booked for the same time slot so that two teams (up to 12 players each) can play concurrently, accommodating up to a total of 24 players simultaneously. For groups larger than 24, an additional room or rooms will need to be reserved to accommodate your whole party. For groups of 50 or more players, check out Escape the Palace!
For scheduling assistance, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to accommodate your needs!
Subject to availability of both rooms. Check out How to Book for Your Group Size.

This puzzle hunt is played inside the Palace of Fine Arts building (also known as iHangar). Players must solve puzzles that appear on 10 posters around the inside of the 80,000 square foot complex. Pencil and paper are all that are required to play the game, and teams can find both, plus a useful worksheet, at the Palace Games table inside the Palace. The hunt takes approximately 30 – 45 minutes and is free.
The Palace grounds are lovely for a stroll and the beach and Crissy Field are a close walk away (across the street). The House of Air (trampolines) and Planet Granite (indoor rock climbing) are in the Crissy Field area. The Palace is also adjacent to the Presidio — home to the Disney Family Museum and the Letterman lagoon and lawn. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes in the surrounding area — in the Presidio and on Chestnut Street especially — that are great for groups.
