Want a new way to hang out with buddies, impress a date and make new friends?  Live room escape is an adrenaline-inducing, team-based puzzle solving experience.  A group of players trapped in a room tackle a sequence of mysteries to unlock the room within an hour.  

Our Games

You are Dr. Watson trapped in a mysterious room. Unfortunately, Sherlock Holmes can't help because he is somewhere else - he's waiting for you to join him in tracking down the hound of the Baskervilles, an adventure of your lives. Escape before time runs out!

The Big Bad Wolf is back to destroy even the sturdiest of houses! Your mission is to rescue the three little pigs from their houses and escape from the forest!

You are Mr. Scrooge that has learned your lesson about greed! Now you are trying to escape from the torture of three ghosts: The Ghost of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet-to-Come. Re-live the classical tale of A Christmas Carol!

Fun-Loaded Experience 

Help us create the coolest, most beautiful room escape experience in one of the greatest cities in the world.  We have already secured commercial lease in Manhattan's prime Korea-town neighborhood.  Most of our rewards in return for your pledge are tickets to our rooms, at attractive below-market levels. Before we officially open for business, we will contact the backers individually to redeem their tickets and book appointments in our rooms. 

We are a group of puzzle fanatics, or puzzlers for short. Not to be confused with the Riddler from the Batman franchise, we develop brainteasers to bring a smile to your face. Having partaken in other room escapes, we feel compelled to offer our own venue with uber-cool puzzles meeting the standards of New Yorkers.

Puzzles to delight
Puzzles to delight

Our first goal is to design puzzles that engage more than your visual senses.  You will listen, feel and even smell the objects in a room to figure out the key to exit.

Our second goal is to create a beautiful experience.  We ask ourselves: if Apple were to design a room escape, how would it look?  We focus on refining puzzle details for enhanced customer experience. Even if the players don't break out within an hour, we still want them to have a delightful experience.

Our third goal is to create the rooms based on themes of popular literature, such as the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.  We want players to experience these timeless works through puzzles, in a more modern and interactive fashion.

After extensive search, we have found a spacious room in Manhattan's Koreatown, a convenient, premium and fun location filled with retail and restaurants.  We are currently undergoing renovations but will launch soon!

Lastly, below is an entry-level sample puzzle entitled "The Hidden Tiger." Can you find the other tiger in the picture?  The first five backers with the correct response will each receive one free ticket to our room, **in addition to their pledge**.  Indicate the location of the unseen creature by sending us a message on Kickstarter after you make the pledge.

Risks and challenges

Although renovation isn't too tricky, delays could happen. But we gave the process an early head-start, and are actively involved to minimize this possibility.
