Escapism Portland is proud to introduce our fifth and newest escape room experience, the Wizard’s Lair. Now for up to 12 people – it is bigger, better and with some amazing new props!

A master wizard has spent the last several months cloistered in his hidden lair before finally vanishing completely. The old mage’s apprentice, suspicious and unwilling to trust anyone in the magical community, has contacted you in hopes you can help. Enter the dark chambers and work quickly to unravel the wizard’s secrets of alchemy. Will you be able to bring him back before it’s too late?

Escape rooms are the newest craze in entertainment, topping the attractions list for major cities in Europe, Asia, and now the United States.

The escape room is full of clues, codes and puzzles. You will need to use critical thinking, observation, dexterity and a bit of luck in order to escape the room before time runs out!

Escapism Portland is the only escape room in Portland where you are not paired with strangers and has a competitive group pricing model. Book with us today!

    My friend wanted to do this for her birthday last year, but we ended up doing a brewcycle instead. I’d love to surprise her this year with an Escape room birthday party!

    Having a background as a nursing assistant I think I’m the best choice for the job of finding the Master Sorcerer. My people skills will help put the skittish apprentice at ease. Trained in observation I can find the clues and solve this mystery with the help of my response team.
