What is The Entrapment?

The Entrapment is a live, game experience where you and some friends are dropped into a mysterious room and must use teamwork and ingenuity to solve puzzles, follow the clues, and find your way out. This genre is called an escape room and it originated in Japan around 2008. The popularity of this real life game quickly spread throughout Asia and Europe before finding its way to the U.S. somewhere around 2012.

Escape games come in many shapes and sizes. Some are simply rooms cluttered with lots of puzzle to be solved in any order, possibly with a loose theme, usually leading to a key to unlock the room you are trapped in. Many rooms no longer even have a true escape element but rather an end goal of some sort such as finding a particular item.

At The Entrapment we knew an escape room could be so much more. We started with a story and characters, something to draw players into a realistic world. We then built a fully immersive room around that story and built the puzzles into both the story and the environment.

Why is The Entrapment a great Team Building experience??

The Entrapment was designed with collaboration in mind. I've heard people say that in many rooms they go rogue, meaning they break from the pack and, because of their experience, go about solving many of the puzzles quickly and by themselves. This won't work at The Entrapment. Many puzzles require more than 2 hands to solve while others simply require different people taking different roles during the puzzle solution. Time and again people tell me this is a great team room so gather your team and come give us a try.
