NYCC: ‘Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency’ Escape Room

The show floor at New York Comic Con is home to something special and mysterious this year: the Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency Escape Room. Taking its inspiration from the Douglas Adams books, the new BBC America show is every bit as quirky and hilarious as its source material.

But what about this escape room? As a veteran of escape rooms, it’s immediately clear to me this one is much more of a… holistic puzzle. The setting is the apartment of Todd Brotzman — Elijah Wood’s character on the show.


It was so much fun solving the puzzles and exploring the room — there are so many little details themed to the show. Especially delightful is Todd’s entertainment center.

For anyone at NYCC who loves to task their brain with elaborate puzzles, this is a must-visit attraction on the show floor.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency premiered at NYCC, and will have activity throughout the weekend. For everyone else, you’ll have to wait until the television premiere on Saturday, October 22 on BBC America. Don't miss it!

Here are some shots of the Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency cast playing through the Escape Room experience at NYCC!
