Strange Bird Immersive presents The Man From Beyond, an original story combining immersive theatre and an escape room.
Locked in a room with friends, you must discover the room’s secrets and solve its puzzles before time runs out.
The world of the story surrounds you, characters hold out their hands to you, and no one is a passive spectator.
A 90 minute experience that brings stakes and realism to the game and introduces agency to the theatre.
Madame Daphne cordially invites you to a private séance to contact the spirit of Harry Houdini. But all is not what it seems, and when the ghost appears, things take a dramatic turn. Unravel mysteries a century in the making, and you could find yourselves doing more than escaping a room.
...created, built, and experienced only in Houston
Professional actors dedicated to realism from the moment you walk through the door
Responsive light and sound effects deliver a cinematic experience
Custom-designed sets and puzzles that never require guessing to solve

The Man from Beyond is atmospheric and offers surprises and suspense, but no horror or gore.
You will search and discover and interpret and investigate and connect. You will not do math.
Don’t worry—there’s no embarassing role-play. You get to be yourself but inside a realistic imaginary world. Prepare to do amazing things you wouldn’t normally do.
That’s not what we’re about.
The Silos at Sawyer Yards, an old rice packaging plant converted to artist studios, in the heart of the Washington Avenue Arts District, Houston's largest creative community and perhaps the highest concentration of working artists in the United States. The Silos is about a mile west of Downtown Houston, a few blocks south of the Taylor St exit of I-10.
Yes. You undoubtedly did not participate in everything and want to see more, but it’s challenging to avoid spoiling the solutions you do remember for new players. Veterans of the game will receive a complimentary ticket if they book a private room for their friends. Contact Adrian Rook to set up your return visit.
Your adventure begins a mile west of Downtown Houston on Sawyer Street. Once in the front parking lot of the Silos, turn down the narrow driveway along the north side of the building, next to the railroad tracks.
Drive past the parallel parking spots until you pass the old rice silos. Park in the head-in parking and there will be a door on your right labeled "The Silos". The door requires an access code: punch in the code received in your email to open the door.
Once through the entrance door, you will see the restrooms ahead: please make use of them.
Then walk down the narrow winding hallway that goes towards the front of the building and passes through the silos themselves. Continue through a left turn and you will find our stairs on your left, just above a shop selling ceramics and scupltures.
Climb the 17 steps to meet us at Madame Daphne’s Tarot Reading Room and Séance Parlor. You’ll know her when you see her.
Strange Bird highly recommends making post-show plans with your teammates to share your different experiences. Pre-show is encouraged, too, but please moderate any alcohol intake. Here are some of the best establishments in our neighborhood:
