Reviews by escape room review sites

Some escape room themes promise quality before you know anything else about the game. Lab Ratโ€™s premise has the kind of originality that suggests something special, and it more than delivers.
You are the test subjects of Ratkenstein, rodent would-be doctor, who needs you to pass his intelligence test to get his dissertation on human intelligence accepted. Itโ€™s a fantasy inversion of animal laboratory testing where humans are in the cages and rats are pulling the strings, a smart premise that is...
If youโ€™re in Los Angeles and there is a room that has been ranked number eight in the world then really it would be rude not to try it out.
Lab Rat created a world for us to explore. They built a fiction, presented a complete story with a beginning, middle and end, and thrust us into it with scaled-up set design and fully justified gameplay.
Today we prove that we are not idiots, because at least weโ€™re smarter than rats. You know, saying it out loudโ€ฆ that really doesnโ€™t help our case, does it?
Lab Rat phenomenally blends multimedia storytelling into an escape room experience filled with laughter and memorable moments. With over 200 escape rooms under our belts, we are proud to give Lab Rat the newly created gold 5-star rating for pushing the boundary in the world of entertainment.
