Madame Tussauds reveals details on its first escape room

San Francisco will bring the world’s most famous prison escape to life in its new “Alcatraz – The Breakout” escape room, the first in the brand’s 250-year history. Themed after the infamous 1962 escape, the experience will open Wednesday, May 23 on Fisherman’s Wharf, just one mile from where it all took place – Alcatraz Island.

Players will be able to follow in the footsteps of three Alcatraz criminals, Clarence Anglin, John Anglin and Frank Morris, who escaped from the notorious prison.

Taking on the role of prisoners condemned for crimes they didn’t commit, players are given 60 minutes to crack codes and solve puzzles before the guards arrive on the scene.

Madame Tussauds worked with Rogue Productions, who also designed Time Run.

“We’re thrilled to open Madame Tussauds first escape room here in San Francisco,” says Dalia Goldgor, general manager, Madame Tussauds San Francisco. “Inspired by real events and in the shadow of Alcatraz, our escape room, will be funny, educational and most of all, a total blast!”
