solve a mystery, find a prized possession, even save humanity...
In our escape rooms, you and your team (2-10 players) are the main characters in a real-life adventure game.
During your 60-minute quest, you must use your combined wits to investigate elements in a uniquely themed environment. In this alternate reality, the goal is to decipher clues and solve a series of puzzles to complete your mission and ultimately win the game.
If you're a bit nervous about the idea of an escape room, rest assured! At Olde City Escape Games, the fun comes in the thrill of a challenge rather than an escape. The magic begins when the door closes behind you, but you will never be physically locked in any of our spacious rooms. Our expertly trained staff will also be observing via cameras to offer clues/assistance and to ensure a safe, smooth experience.

The Heart of Historic Philadelphia
Located in the HEART OF HISTORIC PHILADELPHIA
Philly is a city of neighborhoods! We take great pride in being at the heart of historic Philadelphia in vibrant Old City, the birthplace of America. We're only a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Liberty Bell, across the street from the New Museum of the American Revolution, and a block from the Benjamin Franklin Museum. Visit our neighbors at the oldest running candy shop in the United States and have a treat at Franklin Fountain and Shane's Confectionary after your game for a celebration!
Our beautiful building was constructed in 1853 as an industrial/manufacturing building. Legend remains that the 1976 bicentennial time capsule remains buried on our block.
