Come on down to The Puzzalarium for an experience guaranteed to be fun and unlike any other!

There's Something for Everybody

Does your group contain friends who enjoy nudging each other into lava and for general fun and chaos? Then reserve a time to play The Floor is Lava, a real life hidden roles game that puts your friends right into an arena of sinking islands, fireballs, and burning lava. Maybe your group is made up of a bunch of board game lovers? Every Tuesday at the Puzzalarium, we offer free game nights, allowing people to test out our large library of over 40 board games. No matter what your group is looking to do, you The Puzzalarium is a great place to have fun and enjoy yourselves!

Hosted Attractions Personally For You

All of our attractions are private, allowing you to experience our games without having to play with strangers. But, even better, our attractions are also hosted by a highly qualified puzzlemaster. Our puzzlemasters are trained to make sure that your party enjoys the attraction without making the game seem either too difficult or too easy. Our hosts are always there for you, and they will help to make sure you have a time you won't soon forget.

You Can Always Come Back

If your friends end up liking us too, don't be afraid to come on back. Even if you finish the escape room, we have other attractions for you to enjoy as well. The Floor is Lava is a repeatable experience for you and your friends to partake in the mutual destruction and chaos of falling into lava. Want more puzzles, but can't wait for the next iteration of the Parlour? We can help organize a custom solution for your group event with a special attraction just for you! If you want to come back with your friends, you are sure to find something new to do every time!
