Hi. We’re HATCH ESCAPES. We do escape rooms a little differently. 

Why escape from a room when you can escape into one? At Hatch, we believe escape rooms are an art. That's why our rooms are built by professional artists and scripted by a New York Times bestselling author. Our very first adventure, "Lab Rat," is now open for bookings.


Glorious, Delicious, Completely Unmitigated Praise for "Lab Rat":

"How grand, genius and silly this escape room was...It felt like very inch of this immersive escape room was used one way or another...it was a 5+/5 room and I have never given a 5+ rating." - GTFO.blog

"BEST ESCAPE ROOM IN LA! I mean I'm glad the others exist but seriously - Lab Rat felt like the future of escape. " - Gloria C, Yelp

"Lab Rat was room 207 for me, and probably the best I've ever played. Certainly the best room in Los Angeles. Beautifully designed, creative puzzles, and even a story that will make you laugh as it carries you through the hour long escape." - Elan L, Yelp

"Lab Rat (my 122nd room): Got to beta test this room and OMG this room has made it in my top 3 favorites ever...The future of escape rooms is happening and the genius minds who have created this work of art have exceeded expectations and challenged limits. I thought I have seen everything, but apparently not." - Sheryl B, Yelp

I've done 104 rooms, and man, this is a tough review to write. There are so many rooms near and dear to my heart, and I would never want to take anything away from those rooms...but...Lab Rat is now the best escape room in LA, and the best escape room I've ever done. 10/10, I wish I could erase my memory and go again. - Dan W, Yelp

"I don't know what all those people are talking about. 'Lab Rat' is not an escape room. It's the place I carry out my research into human intelligence. And I wish people would stop escaping from it." - Timothy Ratkenstein, Ph.D. Candidate and Proprietor of Testing Facility
