Description

Harry Houdini wasn’t born. He was invented.  

Inescapable: The Life and Legacy of Harry Houdini tells the story of how Ehrich Weiss became Harry Houdini and investigates the technologies, marketing prowess and entertainment trends that transformed him into the world’s first international superstar. 

Get a taste of the jaw-dropping magic that made Houdini famous up-close and personal with roving magicians who will delight your senses and stun your mind. Sip wine, imbibe a signature Houdini cocktail from the mixologists at Central Standard Distillery, and feast on hors d’oeuvres. Escape from our specially curated escape room created by Breakout Games, and test your skills with our Lock-Picking Challenge. Experience guided tours of Inescapable including information on Houdini's youth spent in Wisconsin.
