A Vision Realized: The Rise of Escape Hotel

With their passion and drive, Ivan Leon and Lara Herczeg are now set on making Escape Hotel a household name, not just in Los Angeles but across the world. They aim to bring the thrill and excitement of the escape rooms to different cities so that everyone can experience the unique and captivating entertainment that Escape Hotel offers.

But it all started with a simple love for escape rooms and a desire to create something truly special. Ivan and Lara saw the potential for an escape room that was much more than just a simple puzzle-solving experience. They wanted to create an immersive world where customers could be transported to another place, time, and experience. And that’s exactly what they did with Escape Hotel. 

“We saw a lot of potential for a big development in a rapidly growing industry that limited itself to a couple of games inside the venue and zero experience or uniqueness outside the games,” the founders shared. “This is unbelievable, and we can make this much better. Somebody is going to make this big, and that someone better be us,” was our idea,” they added.

As soon as visitors arrive, they are whisked away to a spooky 1920’s hotel, where the undead staff awaits them. The hotel is complete with exciting special effects that add to the already electrifying atmosphere. With 11 different and challenging games on offer, guests are sure to have a blast. Each game offers a unique and thrilling experience, ensuring an unforgettable time. And with the added bonus of a bar and restaurant and live entertainment shows, it’s easy to see why Escape Hotel has become a popular destination for both locals and tourists alike.

And so, the journey of Ivan and Lara continues. From a simple escape room experience in 2013 to creating the biggest and most unique escape room venue in the world in 2016, the duo has revolutionized the industry with their innovative ideas and relentless pursuit of excellence. Escape Hotel has seen phenomenal success, which is a shining example of their fervor, imagination and entrepreneurial prowess. 

The future appears to be bright for the hotel, with plans to broaden its horizons to new cities and nations, providing an even greater selection of exhilarating experiences for its patrons. Escape Hotel, with its drama-packed atmosphere, cutting-edge special effects, and cutting-edge games, is an absolute must-visit location for any adrenaline junkie and anyone seeking a truly unforgettable experience.
