Since we are always up for a challenge we welcomed the invitation from 60out Escape Rooms to check out their room called “Amityville.” The room is based on the real life horror story about a demon-infested house on Long Island, NY. Like most escape rooms, you have an hour to find the clues and solve the puzzles in order to get yourselves out. Well, with this room you have a little extra incentive because this place is creepy.
Six of us headed over to 60out Escape Room’s location at 1333 W. Temple Street just outside of DTLA. We were greeted by Sammie (so nice) who checked us in and then walked us over to the front door of 112 Ocean Avenue. This is the same address of that real house in Amityville where a family of 6 was murdered back in 1974. We headed inside, and she slammed the door behind us and locked us in. The 60out people have done a great job a creating a real life haunted house. Don’t freak out. This is not a haunted house at Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights. There are NOT people jumping out at you. This is just a really creepy feeling escape room with a few spooky surprises. Now, I don’t want to spoil the experience, so I won’t give you too many details.
We hurried around the room gathering up some items and started to brainstorm about what to do with them. We tried some different things when suddenly the lights flashed, the music played and the voice of a little girl gave us our next clue… but what did it mean? Well, I’m not telling you. I will tell you that we took they little ghost’s advice and eventually escaped the room with a few minutes to spare. This escape room was a lot of fun, with some unexpected twists.
If you are looking for some spooky fun, we highly recommend you check out 60out’s Amityville escape room. Unlike other escape rooms, all games at 60out are private, and there will not be strangers in the room with you. The room starts at $40 a person for two people, but goes down to about $27 a person if you have a group of six… but wait, if you use the promo code SILVER15 you can save an additional 15%. Good Luck.
