Massachusetts: Escape Room Recommendations

Latest update: June 18, 2022

Looking for an escape room near you in Massachusetts?

Massachusetts has a lot of great escape rooms outside of Boston. You don’t even need to know how to pronounce the names of the towns to play the games!

Drive west, past Route 495 to find many of these gems. There lies an awesome escape room day trip.

We’ve covered Boston recommendations (inside Route 95) separately.

  1. If you can, I would heavily suggest checking out Mass Escapes in New Bedford. Both of their games have great set, interesting and engaging puzzles, and a rather engaging storyline. If you can only play one, go for 44 Winterwood Lane, it’s an eerie yet not terrifying horror game with a beautiful set and high tech, well integrated puzzling. Ice Station Zero is a bit less detailed, but has far more complex puzzling.

  2. Thanks for the recommendation! I’ve made a note. We haven’t spent enough time exploring the rooms in southern Massachusetts yet. Hopefully we’ll get the opportunity soon!

  3. In addition, Outside The Box Webster just opened up a new room that’s raises the scenic bar for the entire region, while maintaining a solid puzzle flow and a surprisingly detailed storyline. Make sure to play Aftermath there as well, as it is another awesome game.

  4. I think escape room Westford is closed. That’s what it says online at least.
