Private Escape Rooms Available - Check "Private Game" During Checkout

If you do not want to potentially play with folks from outside your party, you can select “Private Game” and pay $10 per-unused ticket to have the escape room for just your group. If, on the day of the game, there are more players than you planned on bringing originally, the extra players can simply pay the $25 difference on their tickets.

All in-person escape games start at $35 per player

Explore the Workshop of the famous escape artist Harry Houdini!
Known not only for his work as an illusionist, but also for his skepticism of so called “mediums” who claimed to be able to commune with the dead. Houdini would sometimes take part in Seances, only to publicly debunk them by demonstrating how they were performing their tricks.

But perhaps Houdini’s motives were not so mundane… we have evidence to believe Houdini found someone in possession of real magical ability – unfortunately, he died before he could share this discovery with the world.

With a wide variety of engaging puzzles and some magic tricks of our own built into the room, Houdini is sure to be a blast for any escape room fan!

Board the deck of the doomed pirate ship, the “Hades’ Plunder”.
A mutinous crew has locked her captain in the brig, and it’s up to you and your team to help steer the ship safely to the shores of one of the nearby islands, saving the contents of the ship and prevent a catastrophic disaster.

You won’t be able to do it without the help of the captain – but he’s been locked in the brig, so he’ll just have to talk you through it. Don’t worry though, we’re pretty sure sailing a full pirate vessel can’t be that difficult. Right?

With some of our most physically engaging puzzles, and a gorgeous set and immersive theme, Pirates of the Bermuda Triangle will keep you thinking and entertained up to the very end.

Just because the drinks are glowing doesn’t mean we can’t try them…
Travel back 1920s NYC during the height of Prohibition. Explore the various rooms and nooks of a secret back-alley speakeasy, and maybe even discover why everyone who used to drink here… stopped.

What did they begin to see when they consumed their favorite of the four house cocktails? Only one way to find out… we’re going to break into the speakeasy and mix ourselves some drinks. 

(No actual drinks exist in this escape room, so please curb your excitement and/or concern, whichever way  your thoughts were trending just then).

Guardian? Danger? When does one become the other?
Explore the lair of a wayward “superhero”. A Clue Chase Labs employee has stolen some of our time travel technology, and they’ve used it to shift themselves into a new timeline where they’ve been posing as a hero.

Unfortunately, their most recent antics have been crossing a dangerous line.
We’re going to send your team into the heart of their lair, so that hopefully we can put a stop to their plans. You’ll have one hour to track them down and successfully deliver the payload. But before you can do that, there will be a host of security systems you’ll have to bypass. 

Good luck.


Like the reviews from critics, our regular guests also have a lot to say about Clue Chase and our fun escape room games. We’ve received certificates of excellence from Tripadvisor for four years running, and regularly receive high praise from escape room players.

You can also check out our reviews on Google where we currently have a 4.65-star average from 630+ reviews. We’re not conceited enough to think we’re the best escape room in New York City, but we’re definitely one of them.

If you have played one of our games before but have not left feedback, we would really appreciate it if you would tell us about your experience.

We love hearing what we are doing well and what we could improve. Our customers are our biggest source of inspiration, so hearing from you helps us continue to make great games.
