best escape game in boston

Our story:

Jason and Nicole Loeb are Boston locals who have a passion for designing and creating intoxicating escapes from reality.

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 space that needed a heaping amount of TLC. The space was a rabbinical council for over 20 years. The floors were moldy once-blue carpets and the walls were stained all sorts of shades of yellow and green. The stunning main feature was the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the beautiful Boston Common.

Jason restored the floors to their original oak. Our team learned how to sledgehammer walls and break them down. New walls were put up. Nail by nail, Jason created a pallet wall from scrap wood found in Quincy. Nicole designed the first three Trapology games – The Drunk Tank, The Hustler, and The Retreat. 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!

The original small team of 2 is now a team of 14, with dedicated resources for Corporate Team Building, in-house Photo/Video Production, and Custom Experience Design for Boston’s most strategic companies. Team Culture consists of constant jump scares, awful puns, and a work culture based on respect.
