The best San Antonio escape room experience

About the escape room game

This escape room adventure around the River Walk takes the best parts of an escape room and the best parts of a scavenger hunt and merges them into the most fun thing to do in San Antonio. You get to search for clues hidden in the real world and then use them to solve escape room puzzles. When you solve for a code, the app will tell you where to go look for your next clue! Instead of trying to escape the room, this Escapely adventure takes you around San Antonio to track down clues and crack the case!

This real world escape room is the most unique escape room in San Antonio. It takes you on a clue-solving adventure to find clues, solve puzzles, and follow an immersive storyline. If you want to keep the experience a surprise, don't read this next bit - it contains some spoilers about where you'll go on Escapely's San Antonio escape room adventure and what you'll see along the way.

In Escapely's San Antonio escape room, you're a detective tasked with solving a mysterious murder. You must find clues and track suspects around the River Walk. (The clues are in the real world, but the suspects are on our app.) Your first clue is at the Shops at Rivercenter. Then, you will head to the Alamo, the historic Spanish Mission central to the Texas Revolution. Though the Texans lost the 13-day seige, the loss galvanized the rest of Texas against Mexico and paved the way to victory at the Battle of San Jacinto. It's free to visit the Alamo, so if you have time there is no reason not to stop in for this quintessential piece of Texas history.

The next part of our San Antonio escape room takes you to explore the neighborhood around the River Walk, and then you will get to walk down a set of stairs onto the River Walk itself to find a clue. We suggest working your final puzzle at Durty Nelly’s Irish Pub on 200 S Alamo St, but you can choose any other spot in the vicinity. The River Walk is one of the most visited places in Texas, and for good reason. After the game, there are a number of bars and restaurants to explore, and if you aren't hungry or thirsty, it's really enjoyable to walk up and down the River Walk and take in the ambiance. There is even a boat you can take so you don't have to walk!

San Antonio escape room FAQ


Yes, but it is not generally recommended unless you are a serious escape room enthusiast. It would be like playing an escape room that has the same storyline and similar puzzles, but with different clues available. Because the clues are integrated within San Antonio's River Walk, the clues are different than all other Whodunnit games. But the puzzles will feel familiar.
The River Walk feels a little like Venice, right in the heart of Texas. There are bars, restaurants, shops, and museums all tucked along a riverside path. If you walk it, you will even wander by parks. If you're a tourist to San Antonio, this is a not-to-miss destination, and even locals will discover new things because our escape room clues will force you to take a closer look at everything in your surroundings.
It's both! In a traditional escape room you must solve puzzles that lead from one to the next to escape the room (or a series of rooms). In Escape the City you must solve puzzles that lead from one to the next, with clues in the real world. It's one of the best things to do in San Antonio!
There are many parking lots and parking meters near the River Walk. We suggest parking near the Shops at Rivercenter to start the game.
You will not need to enter any businesses to play this San Antonio escape room. All clues are publicly accessible.
It's a self-guided adventure around the River Walk for couples, families, individuals, friend groups, and anyone else looking for a fun thing to do in San Antonio.
