Coming to San Francisco: It’s Alcatraz, the escape room

Back in 1962, three convicts spent months plotting their escape from Alcatraz, the island prison.
You? You’ve got an hour to get out.
On May 23, Madame Tussauds on San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf will unveil its first-ever escape room, an Alcatraz-themed test of your wits. You and several of your accomplices, er, friends and co-workers, will be locked up inside a faux prison cell and given 60 minutes to gain your freedom.
You should find clues among the meager possessions in the graffiti-scarred cell. And don’t forget to look under the cot!
Call it the ultimate team-building exercise. Tussauds will even post a Leader Board so you can see how your group stacks up against other Bay Area companies and groups.

You’ll have to shell out for the experience — admission starts at $125 for a group of four participants, and you get price breaks for larger groups  — but at least you won’t have armed guards, sharks and the frigid waters of San Francisco Bay to contend with.
Details: “Alcatraz: The Breakout” will operate daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Madame Tussauds, 145 Jefferson St., San Francisco. Timed tickets must be reserved at least 30 minutes in advance. Participants must be 12 or older. www.madametussauds.com .
