$1M Escape Room, Puerto Rico’s biggest, opens in OSJ

Escape Room Puerto Rico, the island’s biggest entertainment venue of its kind, has opened in Old San Juan, following a $1 million investment to design five rooms featuring unique themes and experiences, News is my Business confirmed.

The 1,600 square-foot complex at 351 Calle Fortaleza in Old San Juan houses bilingual rooms that give players the opportunity to feel transported to the space’s theme — “Secret Society,” “Plane Crash,” “Asylum,” “Sapphire Room,” and “Biohazard Room.”

An escape room is a live game in which a team of players discover clues, solve puzzles, and decipher riddles in a room with the goal to open locks, digital pads, and other mysteries. The participants enter a room and are fully immersed in a theme and story.

The experience of the rooms can range from an arctic cave, plane cabin, mad lab, among others. Once the players are locked in the room, the countdown of the clock starts ticking, and the fun begins. Players must figure out how to escape before time runs out.

Escape rooms were born in Japan and then became mainstream in the United States. Luis Pabón, owner of Escape Room Puerto Rico is an escape room enthusiast and entrepreneur.

After enjoying escape rooms in the United States and other countries, he decided to open several escape rooms in Puerto Rico.

“We love to travel and visit escape rooms. They are a fun experience and a way to play a live game. It is exciting because you have a limited time, and the adrenaline and excitement is vivid,” Pabón said. “We’re so excited to open the biggest escape room in Puerto Rico for the enjoyment of families, teenagers, team building events, tourists, friends, and anyone looking to have a fun experience.”

“We have designed and built the most unique escape rooms. One of the rooms is the replica of the inside of a 747 plane another room has real parts of prison equipment. The ambiance of each room is amazing and unique in Puerto Rico,” he said. “I hope everyone has as much fun playing the escape rooms as we had creating them.”

The facility also features a training and conference area with capacity for between 30 and 40 people. Six new jobs were created with the opening, Pabón confirmed.
