- What People Say
Escape Room LA is in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, near the Fashion District. While finding parking at a reasonable rate can be a chore, the experience you’ll receive at one of their rooms is well worth the hassle. After the game there are a few coffee shops and eateries nearby. L.A. Live is a short drive away if your looking for more entertainment.
You enter a Mayan Pyramid in hopes of finding the Mask of the Jade Warrior. You will need to solve challenges, puzzles, and riddles if you are to find the secret tomb containing the Mask! As with the other rooms at Escape Room LA that we’ve done, the production value is topnotch. As you enter the room there are nice touches to make you feel as though you’ve entered from a jungle setting into the tomb of an ancient pyramid.
All puzzles, except one, are incredibly well-built and sturdy. While the one exception doesn’t live up to the rest of the room it is still in many ways better than your average prop done by other companies. A few of the puzzles require team participation which makes having a full group that much more important. The lighting is fitting to the setting, as is any background music/sounds.
Immersion is a key element to all Escape Room LA experiences and you’ll find it in The Pyramid too. You’ll even find that you have guide with you. Our guide was new at leading adventures through the jungle, but it was comforting to know that we were not alone.
The lobby is now on the bottom floor which is much more convenient, spacious and has lots of seating; however, they could make better use of the amount of space that they have. There are very few games, “fidget” devices, or puzzles to get your mind loose while waiting for your group to enter the room. This is odd because when the lobby was upstairs in a small, crowded room they had way more to do. They even had a puzzle that when solved gave you a code to unlock a candy jar. Water can be purchased from one of the employees at the desk and bathrooms are available and clean… just remember the code!
