We have done over a dozen different rooms. It is one of our favorite experiences. Escape SF is hands down the best we have done. We did 3 of their rooms in 3 days. I highly recommend going to them.

Hello, I'm glad that you enjoyed the games, and I am sorry about some of the wear and tear. We have repainted the games, refreshed many of the props and such. Carpet replacement is coming up next. Regards, Andre EscapeSF

For the 3rd time visiting this location (each visit a different escape room). I have to say this was the worst. The puzzles themselves weren't the issue, but the decor and "dinginess" was way worst. The location is definitely showing its age.

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
