Escape Room LA: Unlock "The Pyramid" Puzzle

An exciting group activity, Escape Room LA has drawn hundreds of teams together for a unique and lively experience, one that doesn't involve dropping all your money at the club or bar-hopping in Hollywood. Instead, go head to head in a race against the clock on an expedition to find a fabled treasure in a jungle pyramid. The Mask of the Jade Warrior is hidden in a secret tomb, and it's up to your group to find it. Can you solve the pyramid's perplexing puzzles, riddles and challenges to find the jade mask and escape? Or will you be trapped inside forever?
