This Halloween, you're in for a treat! It's time to let your inner demons out and face your fears. Instead of binge-watching horror movies and thrillers, choose one of the spooky escape rooms in San Francisco. The perfect way to spend the scariest night of the year is to indulge in an escape room marathon. Happy haunting!
I've done a good number of escape rooms now, and this ranks high on the list! The waiting area is thoughtfully outfitted with some fun little table games, water, and even chocolate kisses. Then a kind and nice guy led us to the Asylum Room. It looks bare at first, but it is absolutely packed with interesting surprises, sensors, puzzles, logic games, and a few special effects. We definitely needed our three clies. Will return to do the Party in Vegas Room for sure!Jan
Ryptic's latest gape, Escape from the Asylum, was so much fun! The decor was spot on - they did a great job recreating the feel of an asylum. And the puzzles kept us busy and engaged the entire time. Definitely worth checking out!Tati
Very clever room and a lot of fun. Our game leader Taylor was probably the best host we've had and we've done a lot of escape rooms. He subtly nudged you in the right direction in such a clever intelligent way and allowed us to still figure out the puzzles and rooms ourselves. I highly recommend.Tiffany
Such a fun way to spend an afternoon! This room had an interesting twist on conventional escape rooms - instead of simply trying to escape with your group, you are competing with other groups at the same time! The room was furnished just like an asylum an had lots of fun electronics to play with.Zeba
I played the game with 15 of my friends and we were split into four different teams. Although we failed to escape in time, our team had fun working together to solve all the puzzles. It's a challenging room and you definitely have to think outside the box in ways I didn't expect.
Also, the staff were really enthusiastic, friendly, and awesome. They help you out during the game with little hints and nudges if you get stuck. Overall, I had an enjoyable experience and highly recommend it.
Appointment on a weeknight was easy to set up for my team of 10. My coworkers and I had a blast escaping the Asylum. It was challenging, and the clues provided were helpful without giving the answers away completely. We dressed in the gowns they had, which was definitely a nice touch. Decor was on point as well. I was very impressed with the amount of technology at this escape room; it's a change from the other escape rooms I've played! Will be back when they introduce a new room!Kristi
We tried the Trapped in the Circus room. The location is definetely sketchy. The good thing was that the "ringmaster" was standing behind the gate in plain sight, so we knew we were in the right place! My friend and I ended up playing with 4 other strangers. The experience was still great even though we were only 10 seconds away from escaping!Kristi
I don't want to give too much away, but just a heads up that this room is only 40 minutes long, with only one room to play in. I'm used to 1 hour long escape rooms and multiple rooms, so it was a bit underwhelming. The puzzles are not too difficult. I enjoyed how sequential the puzzles were, and how they all fit in really well with the theme of the room. The "ringmaster" was in the room with us, taking down notes of who did what, as well as providing a hint when he saw we were missing an essential piece of the picture.
I'd recommend taking Uber/Lyft here as I wouldn't trust parking my car in this sketchy area. I found it odd that the actor asked for tips at the very end; never encountered that before! Regardless, it was a fun experience and I'd be down to come back if they have other games besides the zombie room!
