Our story

Jason and Nicole Loeb are Boston locals who have a passion for designing creative experiences built on teamwork, communication, and immersion. The original small of 2 is now a team of 25, with dedicated resources for Corporate Team Building, Photo/Video/Animation/Graphic Design, and Custom Experience Design for Boston’s most strategic companies. Team Culture consists of constant jump scares and awful puns. Trapology Boston is available for consulting work, co-branding projects, and special events and exhibits.

In 2015, the two Bentley graduates were invited to play a live action game for a friend’s birthday. Jason was not happy about it. He thought the ideas was silly and attended begrudgingly. Fast forward to after the game (they lost, by the way), and the group of friends spent hours at a bar talking about how much fun they had  whose fault it was that they didn’t win.

Inspired, the two were determined to bring their creative interpretation of escape games to Boston. They found a space in downtown Boston and took a risk together on a small space that was once the rabbinical council of New England for over 20 years with a stunning lobby overlooking the beautiful Boston Common.

Nicole designed the first three Trapology games – The Drunk Tank, The Hustler, and The Retreat, and Jason built them out and restored the floors or their original oak. Within 18 months, they outgrew their first 2,400 square foot space and signed a lease for the 5th floor, another 2,400 square foot space to host three more games!

Core Values

Work together.

“If you want to go far, go together.” We believe that collaboration is the secret to solving the world’s problems. We’ve created a set of experiences to challenge the most brilliant individuals. Trapology games encourages strategic thinking, attention to detail, effective communication, and synergetic productivity.

Be creative. 

We are a team is inherently curious people. (Sometimes, we’ve been told we think TOO far outside of the box.) We love constantly innovating, connecting seemingly disparate ideas, and producing the best possible results.

Have fun.

We are dedicated to providing an experience that will surprise, delight, and thrill you. From the moment you step into our TrapLounge, until the last goofy photo that you take in our TrapBooth, we want your experience to be memorable! A day never passes that our facility isn’t filled with laughter. Sometimes, it’s teams laughing at themselves as well as with each other.

Make a difference.

Whether it’s as small as making you laugh with one of our puns, help orchestrate an engagement proposal within our game, or dedicating an entire pop-up event towards a cause we care about, we are happy to give back to our community and make a difference to the people in it.

Trust and respect.

The foundation of Trapology is not what we do, but how we do it and why we do it.
