what is an Escape Room/Game?

Live Escape Games at House of Tales are the response to online adventure games or analog exit board games that have turned into reality.

The House of Tales tells you a story you can touch and feel. In a physical room, your Escape Room, you will awaken the story surrounding you in a matter of an hour.

you & your team

This team game demands full commitment: logical thinking, agility and the matching team spirit. Find your way through the maze of clues and unravel the mystery of your story. In the House of Tales there are  imaginative Escape Rooms for small and large teams. Meet your inner Mafia boss in the darkest streets of Hong Kong or enjoy an adventure like Indiana Jones in ancient Egypt. The quest of Obsession has as many tricks as the escape route from the executioner's dungeon.

your experience

You and your team will be welcomed in the House of Tales by your personal game master and introduced to the secret of our Escape Rooms. That's why punctual arrival is so important to us! The story you book determines the setting for your next 60 minutes and the game begins right away. Now you are on your own, the story has to be completed and all the puzzles you encounter along your path need to be solved. But, you are not on your own...
