Hi, You made a comment on our Facebook about "not worth the Groupon." Seeing that we do not and never have used Groupon, I wonder if you are confusing us with a different escape room. Our staff would have no reason to "lie" to you...More

Over the summer we came and did the Alchemist and loved it. Big space, enough for 12 people. You weren't able to do the entire room, but it was still a ton of fun. Last weekend we did Cavern and there were too many people...More

There were nine friends in this group trying to escape from the Cavern room. As with any escape room you don't know what to look for you just have to think things up and figure out how to escape. We escaped with 20 seconds left,...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

The Detective room is larger and more open than The Cavern. And in any case of course we'll let you out if you feel uncomfortable at any time.
