House of Hints, San Diego

4.9
House of Hints is the first live escape game in San Diego! We bring the wildly successful “live escape” games from Europe to the United States. It’s a new, simple, and fun game designed for small groups of 3-5 people that are locked in a challenging and entertaining setting. You get 60 minutes to solve many mysteries, puzzles, and challenges to find the final key and unlock the door to your freedom! You enter as a group and exit as a team, with memories to last a lifetime.

There is little else we can tell you without giving the game away. But, it’s a mixture of skill, brain power, and reasoning whilst being up against the clock. You will have the assistance of your host or moderator -- everyone needs their guidance. It’s a great deal of fun dashing around and exercising your brain by cracking locks, breaking codes and uncovering clues! At House of Hints, we’re going to lock you in a room and throw away the key… and you’ll love it!

  • My husband and I take our 6 grandkids out for a day in December. For years it was to see The Grinch in Balboa Park, this year we thought they had outgrown that play. So we decided to try an escape.....  more »
  • My guy & I are huge fans of Escape rooms. Everywhere we travel, we do a few and being from San Diego, we've done quite a few here. House of Hints truly went the extra mile for us because they helped.....  more »

  • We just had our annual team building event for our office at House of Hints and LOVED IT! We had 4 teams of 5 people and only 1 team escaped. Even those of us who lost still had tons of laughs and challenges and it was an excellent way to have people within an organization work together with other teams. The staff were welcoming, explained things very clearly, and even gave us some hilarious feedback. I would never go with a group less than 4 or 5, you need all of the brainpower and different methods of problem solving.
  • My family and I raced each other in the High School Detention rooms. It was SO FUN! We will definitely be returning! Chrissy and Taylor were excellent hosts! They provided very helpful, timely hints and kept the race close and competitive! Could not have asked for a better experience or for better hosts!!
