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.

This just in:

Top Escape Rooms Project, which aggregates the opinions of over 70 escape room enthusiasts in order to create a list of the best escape rooms in the world, has just named Lab Rat at Hatch Escapes the 8th best escape room in the world. It also makes us the 4th best escape room in the country. We are pretty honored. Read the full list by clicking on the sexy image with the keys and ribbons and all.

Glorious, delicious, completely unmitigated praise for Lab Rat:

This gets our vote for the current #1 Escape Room in Los Angeles. Every part of this escape room is special, with immersive storytelling, impressive engineering, a custom soundtrack, and back-to-back memorable moments. A few of the puzzles were amongst the most creative we’ve seen in any escape room ever. Each puzzle had a memorable finish and many were tied together with the set in delightful and amusing ways. We can’t recommend this room enough.

“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.”

“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.”

“Lab Rat (my 122nd room): 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...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.”
