For the third year is a row, USA Today has opened the voting for their Readers’ Choice 10Best escape rooms.
We see USA Today’s 10Best as an opportunity for newbies to start out playing a great room, and hopefully get hooked. As such, we did our best to nominate geographically dispersed companies as candidates for their 10Best list.
10 of our nominees are included in this year’s vote. No, we will not say which ones.
10Best Travel Lists
USA Today publishes 10Best lists to help travelers make the most out of their trips. The 10Best lists cover food, lodging, destinations, travel gear, things to do, etc. Experts select the nominees and the readers vote on their favorites.
According to USA Today, across the different categories, 10Best is read by 5 million travelers per month.
8 of this year’s nominees are in California. Most of these are in and around Los Angeles.
This speaks to the strength of the Los Angeles market (and that most of the reviewers consulted have spent a lot of time in California escape rooms). There are a lot of companies creating incredible experiences there.
We recently spent a week enjoying escape rooms in California. We’re looking forward to sharing reviews from that trip in the upcoming weeks. We’ll be publishing reviews of some of the companies on this list and others that we can’t wait to tell you about.
3 of this year’s nominees are in Louisiana. While this is a smaller market than California, it’s no less impressive. The scale of some of these experiences is mind boggling.
We were thrilled to showcase many of these games at Escape Immerse Explore New Orleans.
Promoting Escape Rooms
A vote for your favorite escape room is a vote that promotes escape rooms to travelers.
Escape rooms are competing with museums, tours, amusement parks, theater, and all sorts of other entertainment.
While California and Louisiana may have emerged as destinations for escape room tourism, there are phenomenal escape room companies all over the country. The 2018 10Best nominees include companies in 7 other states. You can travel to so many different cities and find outstanding escape rooms. Help other travelers find these – and other – escape rooms.
