Welcome to The Entrapment

"Fun, unique, and inventive puzzles. Not your average escape room." -Ed (Facebook)
"This was only my second escape room in SD, but it was heads and shoulders above the other one I tried. The best part was the use of technology in the room." -Joyee (Yelp)
"Increasingly challenging puzzles that are fun and interesting to solve. Best escape room we played in San Diego so far." - Wendy (Facebook)
-The Entrapment-
The Entrapment is a live escape game in San Diego, California where you are part of the story. As events unfold you are drawn deeper into the mystery and quickly realize you'll need your wits and some quick thinking if you want to escape in 60 minutes. The Entrapment is great for a friends night out, a family activity, or a unique birthday party. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult, and although creepy, the content of The Entrapment is suitable for all ages.

What is an escape room?

Escape rooms were introduced in Japan around 2008 and have been popular in Eastern Europe for many years. The Escape Room term comes from the fact that guests are locked in a room and must solve a series of riddles and puzzles in order to unlock the door and escape. Over the years the activities and implementations of the rooms have changed, but the term escape room has stuck.
At The Entrapment we want our escape room to be so much more than an old office filled with random puzzles, so we draw our participants into the game with a backstory before they even enter the room. We then transport the players to another place and time with a custom built, interactive environment. Into that setting we built technology and puzzles that blend seamlessly into the surroundings, incorporating lighting, sounds, props, and everything else needed to completely immerse our participants in the experience.
