It seems in the last year, escape rooms have taken over the country.

The premise is simple: You and a few friends are “locked” in a themed room no larger than a corporate office. Your job is to flip the room upside down in search of clues, work together to solve various puzzles and ultimately escape the room.

Oh yeah, you have between 45 and 60 minutes to do it. If you have not done it before, they’re a ton of fun!

We wanted to know how many escape rooms there are in the Valley. We found nearly 20! Scroll down to find an escape room closest to you and see which themes they offer.
