Escapology, the World’s Largest Escape Game Company, Opens in Northridge with Batman: The Dark Knight Challenge

I was recently invited to preview the latest Batman themed escape game and found it immersive, fun, and perfect for the Halloween season. I was also able to check out their Scooby Doo themed room, it was a blast, even a bit more difficult than the Batman one, proving that Scooby is truly the World’s Greatest Detective. I’d highly recommend this to people in SoCal or if you have an Escapology near you check it out. If you’re interested there’s more info down below…

But the responsibility to succeed is yours alone. Unearth Batman’s intricately designed training device in the heart of Gotham, simulating a pressing chemical threat. With only 60-minutes on the clock before the mock chemical disperses, your quick thinking and collaboration are critical. As a Gotham City Guardian, the city’s simulated safety rests on your determination and wit. Great for all ages and groups of 2-8.

Escapology now offers escape-room fans the chance to save Gotham City alongside the Caped Crusader. “We can’t wait to bring Batman: The Dark Knight Challenge to Los Angeles and beyond,” said Burton Heiss, CEO of Escapology. “With Batman and all our games, you have 60 nail-biting minutes to crack the code and try to escape.”


In the escape games, your team of up to 8 players will complete a specific mission in a fully themed room. During your thrilling experience, you’ll be immersed in a real-life adventure with fun surprises around every corner.
