Debunking Common Escape Room Concerns!

As the first escape room to open in Orange County, we have interacted with thousands of clients over the years, and have often run into people who have never heard of, or played, an escape room before.  When I say that I lock people up for a living, it tends to lead to some confusion and quite a few questions.  Over the years, I have heard many different concerns about trying an escape room, and today I will debunk some of those fears! I’m too scared to try an escape room! While there are plenty of fear-based rooms out there, Exodus has never had, and will never have, scary rooms.  As someone who gets scared very easily (seriously, it’s ridiculous how easily I jump-scare), I was happy to find an escape room company that is not fear-based!  All of our rooms are family friendly.  They do not involve horror themes,

Mother’s Day Escape!

Mother’s Day is fast approaching (May 12th this year everyone)! If there was one thing we did not expect when opening the first escape room in Orange County, it was that Mother’s Day would be so busy! We expected that moms would want the usual: brunch, favorite restaurant, maybe a day in the park, etc. Boy were we wrong! Turns out, moms love a mystery! Not to mention being able to search for clues and solve that mystery with their husbands, sons, daughters, and grandchildren! In fact, for our first Mother’s Day, we staffed lightly because we figured that everyone would be doing other things that day, not playing escape rooms! Oh, how wrong we were! As bookings kept flooding in, we quickly realized that Mother’s Day was going to be busy! What can I say, apparently the lure of solving a mystery with their family was too enticing to

Conversation with a Client!

One thing that we pride ourselves on here at Exodus is providing our clients with an absolutely amazing experience!  We love having return clients, and we always make sure that they have a memorable escape every time.  Recently, we had a very special return client and it truly made our day! On October, 6th, 2015, Lola came and played her first ever escape room at the Exodus Anaheim location.  On that momentous day, she played our original Sherlock’s Study and had such a great time that she came back later that same day to conquer our Trap room (which to this day remains one of her favorite games).  After that, she was hooked!  In the past 4 years, Lola has gone on to play more than 30 other escape rooms, from Anaheim to San Francisco to Chicago, including rooms at 3 of our locations across California!  Just recently, Lola returned

Wedding Parties at Exodus!

As escape room employees, one of the most common questions we get is “Would an escape room be a good activity for…”  There are many phrases that we could use to finish that inquiry: birthday parties, team building, family nights, etc.  Our answer to that question is almost always “Of course!”  Escape rooms are so versatile and are a great and unique activity for many different events.  Another ending to that question is “a date night” or “a bachelor/bachelorette party.”  Yet again, our answer is “Definitely!” Many people say that an escape room is an awesome date night activity.  It’s fun, exciting, and different than the normal dinner-and-a-movie date.  While we are in total agreement there (it’s an amazing bonding experience), we want to take it a step further!  Not only is it a good date night activity, we propose that it is the perfect place to do just that,

Featured By Local University!

We frequently partner with local universities to bring escape experiences to them!  This time, however, a local university came to us!  Here’s what they had to say about it! “Can You Escape This Room? A Sherlock themed escape room By Andy Lizarraga Tucked away in the back of a Rowland Height plaza is an adventure waiting to happen. Right next to a martial arts studio, The Exodus Escape Room is available for those who are willing to be trapped in a room with a mess of hints and clues in order to find a key they can escape with. Exodus Escape Room has five different locations in Anaheim, San Bernardino, Rowland Heights, Rancho Cucamonga and Monterey Bay. The most common room between all of the location seems to be “Sherlock’s Study,” a Sherlock Holmes themed room. At the Rowland Heights location, “Sherlock’s Study” and “Apocalypse” are available. For my adventure,

Our Newest Room!

Happy New Year from all of us at Exodus! It’s 2019, and we cannot wait for everything the year has in store for us… not to mention everything we have in store for you. What does that mean? Well reader, here’s the big news… we have a new room! That’s right, we snuck it in under the wire, subbed it in just at the end of 2018. Now the bad boy is out from under its watery veil, and we want you to be our new recruit. As a few of you will have guessed from the awkward nautical references above… it’s a submarine room!  We call it SUBmerged, and it's currently docked at our Anaheim location. In the game, the players take on the role of the crew of a research submarine (yes there is a Captain’s coat, yes someone gets to wear it. Please don’t fight over it

What Makes Us Thankful

What makes us thankful? In the world of Room Escape often it’s the little things. A group playing one of our rooms and telling us how much they enjoyed it… a fun day in the control booth… just generally feeling fulfilled by the strange and wonderful work we get to do. Other days it’s the big things. With the wildfires in California leading up to Thanksgiving, we’re thankful our employees are safe, thankful our places of business survived, and thankful for the tireless work of the brave people in the emergency services that protected us and our families in these scariest of times.  What’s interesting is that, in turn, these larger concerns make us thankful that we continue to experience the other little things that got us through the day previously. One of the survivors from Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger’s ‘Miracle on the Hudson’ said in a TED talk that, following the
