Best Escape Room in Monterey

You have 60 minutes ... what will you do???

Do You Have What It Takes to Escape Before Time Runs Out?

Imagine being closed in a room with your friends and family, and given one hour to figure out — through clues, codes and suggestions scattered throughout the room — how to solve an adventure.

Change the scenario to a bank heist, time travel, a magical trip through Wonderland, a top secret military facility, a Brooklyn subway terminal, a nuclear submarine, or a remote cabin in the woods, and you have one of the hottest trends in interactive or immersive entertainment — Escape Rooms. They’re based on escape-the-room video and online games, as if the classic board game “Clue” became a live-action game you play with others in real locations.

And now Monterey has its own version —  Escape Room 831 – with three locations on Lighthouse Avenue, Wave Street and Cannery Row — founded by entrepreneurs Christina and Barrie Riddoch of Monterey.

When Riverside was founded, the settlers discovered a woman living alone in the woods. They believe that she was a witch, stormed her cottage, and cast her from the village.
