The Basement (Los Angeles)

One of the best rated escape rooms in the United States? *adds to list*.

It’s become a favourite amongst escape room fans - but be warned, the theme suggests it’s not for children or jittery adults as you’re locked in a basement of Edward R. Tandy, a very twisted, traumatized, cannibalistic killer and rumour has it, it’s just 45 minutes before dinner.

Expect “Saw-like” vibes which will see you piece together clues to coordinate your escape.

Key Escape (South Korea)

If you’ve ever visited Myeong-dong in South Korea, that is where Key Escape is located and if you haven’t been… Now is your chance!

Although there are three different locations where this escape room is situated, this is the only one where English is spoken, but not all of their rooms have English translations - the ones that do include The Madhouse, Murder, White, Stalker and Black Pearl room.

One of the perks of taking part in their escape rooms is that they allow a minimum of one player per room, which means you don’t have to worry about needing another player to solve the puzzles and have fun with you!
