Escape rooms have shot to mega-popularity over the past few years, and for good reason. The premise is simple: you and a group of friends are locked in a room and need to solve a series of puzzles to open the door before time runs out. Each room has a fun theme, like a 1940s detective office or a zombie research lab. Now that new escape rooms are popping up all over town, we’ve narrowed down some of the best escape rooms in Los Angeles.
Fox in A Box Escape Room
Fox in a Box Escape Rooms on Sunset Boulevard offers great themes with incredible twists. Don orange jumpsuits with your team to break out of prison, or go head to head against your friends by playing the same room at the same time. What advice do they offer escapers looking to conquer the challenge? “Asking for help is very important – leave your pride outside.” In addition to the sage advice, they offer riddles to solve for discounts on future games, so be sure to check the chalkboard when you first arrive.
The aptly named 60out has five rooms across Los Angeles from Marina del Rey to Echo Park. First time escapers will love the Nautilus room in Koreatown. With a linear story and amazing underwater special effects, it’s a great way to get your feet wet (pun intended) in the world of escape rooms.
Escape Room LA
Escape Room LA downtown has five rooms for every level of gameplay. For a challenging room with touches of magic, see if you can harness earth’s four elements in The Alchemist.
Enigma Escape Rooms
For rooms that are heavy on story with thoughtful puzzles that blend effortlessly into the narrative, try any of Enigma Escape’s five rooms. Rumor has it that Will Ferrell and Leonardo di Caprio have escaped from Enigma Escape Rooms!
Maze Rooms Los Angeles
Experienced code crackers will shine at Maze Rooms‘ challenging rooms. With awesome themes like Lost in Space and Portal, you’ll expand your horizons and strengthen your puzzle skills. We love getting in touch with our magical side in the World of Illusions room.
