12 Cool Escape Room Experiences in Los Angeles

Escape room experiences are all the rage in Los Angeles and most of them go on all year long. In each one, you have a specified amount of time to solve your way out of a locked (or supposedly locked) space or solve some kind of puzzle, alone or as part of a team. There are a few horror-themed escapes that run all year and during Halloween, there are a few more that take on a menacing tone.
