December Update


Happy holidays from Palace Games, makers of The Great Houdini EscapeRoom in the Palace of Fine Arts! We wanted to give you a brief update of current programs and new escape games coming from Palace Games.

1) Houdini Room Gift Cards

Looking for a unique gift this holiday season? Great Houdini Escape Room gift certificates are here!

2) Houdini Room Price Change in 2016

Prices for the Houdini Room will be going from $360 to $400 per room next year. Rooms BOOKED in 2015 will still be $360, even if the play date is in 2016. Also, Gift Certificates purchased in 2015, will be valid for a full room in 2016. So if you or someone you know is interested in booking a room in 2016, now is the time to lock in the lower price — even if you don’t have a firm date. Links: Booking. Gift Cards.

3) New Escape Room Coming to the Palace Soon!

Our second room, a sequel to the Great Houdini Room with a spy twist, is under construction and will be ready for beta testing in Q1 2016. We will keep you posted on our progress!

4) Announcing: Escape the Classroom! Beta Testers Wanted!

The Classroom Escape Game by Shinteki is coming to Palace Games for a limited time!
