Our Escape Room Review Process

Las Vegas is known for its multitude of activities. The escape rooms in Las Vegas are some of the best you can find. We have attended many of the best games in the city! Our process for rating depends on a few internal factors, such as: set design, creativeness, challenge, location, customer service, and pricing. Some of the rooms are designed to give you a chance to create better team building skills in an environment that is both safe and supportive. A majority of the escape rooms in Vegas are fun and they each pose a real adrenaline-pumping challenge. Here is a look at the 5 best escape rooms in Las Vegas.

No. 1 – Trapped! Escape Room Las Vegas

This is without any doubt the number one escape room in Las Vegas. The escape room games are unbeatable while the staff at Trapped! is very friendly. Best of all, the games have unique designs and they are also very affordably priced. Trapped! It is available at two locations. You should try them at least once. The Trapped! Address: Trapped! Escape Room, 4760 Polaris Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89103, Phone Number: (702) 907-8078.

This escape room is located just off the Las Vegas Strip at Polaris Avenue. It has three different room types. The first is called One-Eyed Jack, the second is called The Lair of the Puzzlemaster and the third goes by the name of Operation x-13. One-Eyed Jack is all about getting away from a serial killer who is terrorizing everyone. The Lair of the Puzzlemaster is all about solving clues that will help you get out of the lair of the criminal architect called The Puzzlemaster. Operation x-13 sees you learn about a formula that transforms innocents into killers. Your task in this game is to prevent that from happening.

Trapped! Invites you and your group to solve clues and find a way to finish your mission in just 60 minutes. However, 90 minutes is a more realistic time to complete the game.

Visiting the #1 Trapped! Escape Room Las Vegas

No. 2 – Lost Games Escape Rooms

This escape room is equally interesting. It is located on S. Valley View Boulevard. There is just one storyline in this game though the story is divided into multiple chapters. You can choose between Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 or you can choose to try out both. The story revolves around Solitude Heights Insane Asylum where you and your group have recently been admitted. At the asylum, people are dying for no known reason and inmates suddenly disappear without any explanation. Your task is to escape or be confined inside forever. 

In Chapter 1, called The Doctor’s Secret, while you are waiting to see the doctor but you learn you have been poisoned and you only have one hour to find an antidote. In Chapter 2, called Playtime, you have found a cure but you are trapped inside and have to escape the asylum. The game is interesting especially as you have to make your way through some very congested spaces. So limited are the spaces in this room, that you have to no option than to resort to crawling to find your way out. The game also has some horror elements. Children below the age of thirteen are advised not to play this game unless they are accompanied by an adult.

No. 3 – Headz Up

This escape room has been functioning since 2017 and is different from others in that it has many more attractions. These include trick art museums and ax-throwing – to name a few. This escape room is located on Boulevard Mall at S. Maryland Parkway which is just three miles from the Las Vegas Strip. There is usually a line of people trying to get in here. So, make sure you book in advance. In Headz Up, there are six different escape rooms to choose from. The one called The Inside Job has you and your group acting like con men who are out to steal expensive jewelry on display. You have to make off with the jewelry in just 90 minutes. The other room is called The Smoking Gun. Here, you and your group are taken back in time to 1879. Your task is to find a group of thieves who are aiming to rob the bank before the ninety minutes are up.

Overall, this escape room offers you a multitude of options and all the escape rooms are private which means no strangers are allowed in. The one exception is the escape room called Great Car Heist which can be played with just two people. The nice thing about these escape rooms is they are all family-friendly. 

No. 4 – Rush to Escape

This is probably the most highly charged escape room in Las Vegas. Its location is Sahara Avenue Suite where you can check out three escape rooms including Ultimate Heist and Prison Break and Smite Sherlock. The first escape room (Ultimate Heist) sees you and your group trying to enter into a warehouse where you have to get a hitherto unknown nerve agent. You have to do this in the given time. Prison Break, on the other hand, is about making your way out of jail while the warden is away. You are in jail for a crime you have not committed. Smite Sherlock is the third escape room and in this room, you have to assist Sherlock Holmes as he attempts to steal a letter from the home of his friend. All the games have a playing time of sixty minutes and you need to have at least three players to play the games, except Ultimate Heist, which you can play with two people.

No. 5 – The Basement

Many consider this the absolute best escape room center in the entire USA. This escape room is located on Polaris Avenue in Las Vegas. Again, just like in Lost Games, this escape room involves just one storyline which is sub-divided into many Chapters.

You and your group are the prisoners of a serial killer who loves to cannibalize his victims. Your task is to find the killer’s lair where you must unearth some clues and miscellaneous items that will help you make your escape. The second chapter is called The Study and it involves you escaping from the basement but you find yourself in a space that you did not think you could reach. This space is the killer’s study. Now, it is up to you to unearth clues to learn everything there is to know about your kidnapper. Your task is to put 2 and 2 together to find a way to escape from the clutches of this killer/kidnapper. Each game in the Basement has a playing time of 45 minutes. Fortunately, this is not a scary game. However, children below the age of 13 are not allowed in. Children under 17 can play but only under the supervision of an adult.
