What are these "escape rooms" everyone's been raving about? You finally decided to find out for yourselves and book one. Everyone has to start somewhere! Here is a list of all escape rooms for beginners in Los Angeles. Experienced players can also pretend to be newbies and enjoy a balanced combination of puzzles and props.
So my friend, her father, and I decided that we wanted to go on a fun escape room on a Friday night right? The service and general idea of the room was supposed to be "not scary" and we supposedly played a kids version. Late into the game, we got stuck. We asked for a clue and the guide gave us false information and then said "my bad" at the end when we couldn't escape. If that wasn't enough, my friend was horrified even though it wasn't supposed to be scary at all. There were mangled dolls draped across the ceiling and eerie sound played in the background. You had to undress a Barbie to find one of the clues, which I personally find extremely disturbing. It was said that we played the kids version, however, many elements of it seemed more mature. We were really bummed at the end since we weren't offered a refund for the mistake that was made. They acted like the issue wasn't a big deal, but the "customer is always right". Please note before exposing this to your kids.Dissatisfied 5th Grader!!! :(
Solid escape room. The themes were thoughtful and relatively well done. I did two here. The seasonal Christmas theme was good for the kids but you can tell was not as well integrated into the puzzles. I find the best escape rooms integrate the puzzles into the story or logic of the escape in such a way that one does not feel like one is doing a puzzle just for the puzzles sake or just to get to the next puzzle. It really does feel like you are solving a mystery and are performing some deductions and detective work. The Santa Operations felt like one puzzle after another. Still the kids had fun. I have done one of the other staple Escape Rooms and felt like it was well done. Definitely worth doing with friends or the family. This is a well run escape room company and serves the customers well. The staff was friendly.Edward L.
We did the Santa themed room today at the Del Amo location, 3 adults and 2 kids. It exceeded our expectations. We wanted to do one that wouldn't be too scary but were a little worried it would be simple..it wasn't! Really fun, super tricky, great family fun. The staff were really friendly and professional and it was clean and well organized. We all left wanting to come back. Thanks guys!Chloe B.
My friends and I had a really great time! I have done several escape rooms in the LA area and this by far was the most creative and challenging. You can tell they put alot of energy into creating a fun and exciting atmosphere. Great job guys!Marie
Tried the easiest one and failed. Will return to pick up where we left off.They would of showed us the solution but we said save it we will be back.Esther
I totally thought they were manually controlling the locks in the back while they laughed at our attempts, but the lady insisted that the locks are all player-controlled. Hm... if so, that's amazing because I was like...how did it know we got it right?Shay F.
I was with 3 other people that never did an escape room before so we had unlimited clues. w00t!
I'd recommend this place. It's so much fun.
