The Ladder will bring a fresh new take to escape rooms

The idea of being locked in a room for 60 minutes might not sound appealing to most, but as the basis for escape rooms, that idea is downright entertaining. We’ve tried our fair share of escape rooms, and almost everyone we’ve played, we came out with glaring enjoyment. Unfortunately, a majority of escape rooms are built to have a one-time playthrough, but that’s all about to change.

Hatch Escapes, the company behind the escape room “Lab Rat,” which is ranked number one in Los Angeles and number eight in the world, is partnering up with producer Arvind Ethan David and actor Jordan Belfi to bring the world’s first replayable escape room, called “The Ladder” which is due to open in 2020.

The Ladder brings a multi-ending game to the world of escape rooms, where you, as the player, will start as a new employee in the basement of a vitamin company. The game will span over five decades as you make your way up the company. Each segment of the ladder will correspond a decade, starting with the ’50s in the mailroom, ’60s in the secretarial pool, ’70s in the middle management, ’80s in research and development, then finally ending in your very own corner office. 

Arvind Ethan David is a British film producer and founder of Slingshot productions. His latest project was the production of the broadway play “Jagged Little Pill,” which is based on Alanis Morrisette 1995 album of the same name. Jordan Belfi has been in hit shows as 9-1-1 and the Rookie, as well as playing agent Adam Davies in the long-running “Entourage” series on HBO. The upcoming escape room will feature an original score by jazz musician Giulio Carmassi of the Pat Metheny Unity Group.

Lab Rat by Hatch Escapes has been one of the most creative escape rooms that we’ve ever played. It was cleverly designed with an interesting storyline and some very challenging games. It was just one of the handful of games that we played that really embraced and stuck to its theme without feeling cheap and disconnected. 

The Ladder has launched a Kickstarter campaign which will run for the next 30 days, at the time of this article, the campaign has already raised $2,500 of its $25,000 goal. You can visit the campaign here.
