How do we get there?
*Get there as a team earn an extra clue…  Transportation will be provided if you can follow the clues of your first task, stay alert as you may be given additional details prior to your game time.  By boat, plane or helicopter make your way to Catalina Island. Thirty (30) minutes prior to your tour go to the grocery store islanders call “VONS Express” and outside on the wall you can place a call. A black phone allows you to deliver the secret code. Lift the receiver and when you hear a friendly voice tell them “I need a cab code word – Holiday Escape.” The white checkered van will arrive and whisk you away to our secret location! Feel free to tip your driver, but the fare is complimentary. Then the real game begins…

What to Bring?
Nothing is needed to meet the challenge, except your creative mind. Be ready to solve puzzles that will test your problem solving abilities!

Photos/Video allowed?
Not while game play is in progress. Emergencies requiring the use of your phone are to be dealt with outside of the escape room.

What is an Escape Room?
An escape room is an interactive adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles using clues, hints and strategy to complete the objectives at hand. Players are given exactly 60 minutes to achieve the ultimate goal depending on the plot of the room. Escape rooms are inspired by “escape-the-room”–style video games.


All participants must sign a liability waiver or, if a minor, have a waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian. Children 16 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult.  Parties with children under 10 are requested to book a private room experience.

Escape Room Catalina asks that you arrive and check in at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the Program. If you are more than 5 minutes late from YOUR arrival call time, the Program will be canceled, you will not receive a refund.

For the safety and enjoyment of our players Escape Room Catalina is a substance-free environment and guests under the influence will be turned away.

We ask that you respect our facility so that others can also enjoy our games!
