Who enjoys opening padlock after padlock? We believe there are more fun things to do than trying out a combination on several locks or dealing with locks that don't work properly.
That's why our rooms never have a single padlock inside. We have put a lot of effort into creating innovative game paths, which don't rely on this common escape room element.
Interconnected puzzles in each room make it easy to see how your team progresses, getting closer and closer to solving the game.
Everything is connected, so keep your eyes and mind open.
Each room has a different theme, and it's our goal for you to enjoy it as much as possible and forget about the world outside.
That's why even game master hints and the running game time are fully integrated into our games, all in very unique ways.
We challenge ourselves to create unusual puzzles that add a bit of magic to your overall game experience at Madame Houdin. Come and find out how.
Our rooms are one of a kind. Each game has been invented, designed and build by ourself.
They are exclusive to Madame Houdin and you won't find them again anywhere else.
All our rooms have been created to be fun for all ages.
No matter how young or old, we are sure you will enjoy each one of them and find the child inside you.
No special skills or knowledge is required to play our rooms.
Having previously played an escape room might give you the little advantage of knowing the overall concept, even expert players will find new challenges they have not encountered before.
We are located right in the middle of Essen. This means you can reach us easily by bike, public transport, or even car.
And after the game? Enjoy one of the many venues closeby for a meal or some drinks and chat about your recent experience at Madame Houdin.
