Houdini Escape Room at the Winchester Mystery House

The famous Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, California, now has a Houdini Escape Room.


In October of 1924, Master Magician Harry Houdini visited the Winchester Estate during his nationwide spiritualism tour. His intention for his visit? To debunk the legends and lore that were circulating around Sarah Winchester’s mysterious home. He left with more questions than answers. 

Now, it’s your turn to solve the mystery. In Houdini’s Spirited Escape, you will solve puzzles and search for clues in an immersive themed room. Can you solve the mystery and escape in time? 

This 30 minute escape room experience is great for all ages!

Visit the Winchester Mystery House website for more details and to book a session. And I still say this would be a great location for an Official Houdini Seance!


  1. "He left with more questions than answers." Is this just hype? I'm sure his tour guide Fred, who was also a magician friend, explained the house to HH which when he visited.

    1. Yeah, that's just spin for their business, just like how they changed the poster. This house was no mystery to Houdini. It was a perfect example of how belief in spiritualism made people nuts.

  2. I can hear Manny Weltman now: "That's Blasphemy!"
