Yelper Tina C., who reviewed the business on June 1, wrote: "Ninety-minute escape room? Say no more. ... The room itself is quite interesting, as I really enjoyed my time there. Not gonna lie, but it got me stressed out in some parts. It just made the ending so much more worth it when I did escape!"

And Beverly B. shared: "Came here with a group of six this past Friday night and we had a blast! The puzzles were creative and different from other rooms I've done."

60out Escape Rooms is another of the latest physical adventure games to hit SoCal.

With over 20 Los Angeles locations -- and currently two in Philadelphia -- this spot invites guests to go undercover as DEA agents to bring down the dangerous Juarez Cartel; or to test their nerves in the haunted Amityville house, where evil spirits are said to lurk.

Boasting an action-adventure/horror theme, this escape room experience lasts 60 minutes and can involve two to six players. (Visit the website here for details.)

Yelp users are excited about 60out Escape Rooms, which currently holds five stars out of 40 reviews on the site.

Yelper Mike T., who reviewed the newcomer on June 9, wrote: "It's really refreshing to play a game like Cartel where everything you do is intuitive to the story and is a really well-crafted imitation of real life. The type of puzzles you do really lends itself toward a level of narrative immersion you don't get in many rooms."

"We had an amazing time playing Cartel," said Yelper Gene V. "I won't lie, not the easiest room. Our group of five was perfect for this game, as we needed an incredible amount of attention to detail."

60out Escape Rooms is open from 10 a.m.-10:30 p.m. on Sunday-Thursday and 10 a.m.-midnight on Friday and Saturday.
