This mysterious mansion once belonged to the famous illusionist Houdini. Even though the householder has passed away, as explained in the pre-show, his magic still lives inside these walls which causes unexplainable things to happen.
Houdini - The Great Escape is one of four Madhouses with the same theme. Two others, Houdini's Great Escape (Six Flags Great Adventure, U.S.A.) and Het Magische Huis van Houdini (Bellewaerde, Belgium) were also designed by ShowQuest and opened in 1999 as well. Maison Houdini (Rainbow MagicLand, Italy) opened in 2011 and is unrelated otherwise.
