Recent years have seen a big surge in popularity for escape rooms. Originating in Japan, escape rooms, also known as escape games, are an innovative and exciting way for families, groups of friends, colleagues, and sometimes even total strangers to get together and use their wits, intelligence, and problem-solving abilities to try and escape from a locked room.

The rooms typically have their own themes and stories, with lots of unique puzzles to overcome along the way. Many of these different escape rooms have started to open in big cities all over the world, giving people a unique way to spend some time, having fun while also exercise their brainpower.

However, not all escape rooms are created equal. Some are far more challenging, exciting, better-designed, and more enjoyable overall than others. Those looking for an exciting escape room in Boston should certainly consider booking a spot at Trapology Boston, which ranks as Boston's most challenging escape game.

Trapology Boston Escape Room

Trapology Boston was founded by Jason and Nicole Loeb, two Boston natives who fell in love with the concept of escape rooms and wanted to make some of their own. In 2015, these two innovators and inspiring creators took part in an escape room as part of a friend's birthday celebrations. They had a lot of fun, but wanted to make something even better.

They located a spot in Downtown Boston to meet their needs and got to work, designing and creating a range of amazing games for Boston residents and visitors to take on. They started as a small team with humble resources but have now grown exponentially, boasting a full range of games, a staff of 14, and an amazing portfolio of work, including special charity events with major Hollywood stars like Chris Evans.
