Building isn't labeled Ace Escape, so go by address on building only. Guy who runs it is super nice and helpful.
Had a good time, fun room.!.
The stairs are on the left side of the building and the lobby only has one entrance. There are lockers there for you to store your stuff, but bring your own lock!
If you want a super super fun group activity, try the Ace Escape Room in downtown LA. I've now done 5 different escape rooms with different companies in different cities and this place was by far the best!
I (the recipient of this gift) and the purchaser, Joseph Billeter, have asked Groupon repeatedly to credit the money back into his account because we cannot open the voucher. But have not heard back. Please credit asap. Thanks.
Daytime appointments are best as it is downtown. I don't think it's as scary as others think it is and when I arrived the last group was leaving so finding the entrance wasn't too difficult either. It really is a cool experience & the escape uses some really fun lighting effects and interactive techniques. Recommended!
Entrance is to the left of the building and then upstairs.
The unmarked warehouse it resides in should have been an indication of the 'quality' of experience I was about to have with my family.
The waiting room looked and smelled like a day care center. The girl that led us into the 'escape room' had very little enthusiasm, no real introduction, and did almost no explaining except that 'if the flashlight torch stops working, spin the top to the left.' By the way, 2 of 4 flashlights still didn't work even after the 'twisting.'
The room felt like a group of high school math club students painted hieroglyphics on the walls. As far as making sense of the 'clues,' you are really just left to guess and just hope the pieces fall into place.
Between the duct tape holding some of the items together, the hot glue we were instructed not to peel off, and the girl coming in 30 minutes into our experience, to unlock a puzzle book that couldn't be opened, even with the correct puzzle answer, any ambiance that was there, was gone.
It was not what me and my kids expected in the WORST way possible. I feel TOTALLY ripped off.
It was very tricky and a fun experience! Really made us think and gave us something to talk about for hours afterwards. Definitely good for 4 people!

It's something every archeologist dreams about, but few ever achieve: discovering a previously lost Egyptian temple. Yet that's the very situation—complete with a mysterious curse—in which players find themselves at Ace Escape Game. The Pharaoh’s Treasure, one of three escape rooms, places teams of up to eight players in an ancient tomb that's filled with priceless artifacts—but only 60 minutes worth of oxygen. For that hour, teams must work together to decipher clues and gather evidence that will lead them out of the room and on toward victory. Other rooms task players to search out a killer's identity or scour a rebel base for evidence before an air strike destroys it all. Within each, players must keep their wits about them while using analytical knowledge to find a quick solution.
