A first-of-its-kind Narrative Puzzle Game

From the creators of the first and one of the most acclaimed escape rooms in San Diego comes an Immersion that is categorically unlike anything you or anyone like you have ever experienced. It is like an escape room, but the object is not to escape. It is like a game of cards, but stories and puzzles weave into the game and cards. It is like a role-playing game, but stage lights and soundscapes pull you beyond fantasy. This is more than a game. This is an Immersion. Enter. Solve. Play. Welcome to The Parlour.

Next-Generation Storytelling

17 computer-controlled lights and 5.1 surround sound, cues and reactive special effects conspire to create the most immersive storytelling experience you will ever experience. Read more.

Private Experience

The Parlour is a reserved solely for the members of your group whom you deem fit to accompany you. You will not be mixed with strangers during your gaming session in the room.

Play with 2 to 6 players

Play with your significant other. Play with your friends. Play with up to six players, all of you working together to unravel the mysteries of the Parlour, again and again. Plays best with three or four, but more or less is fine.
