Universal Studios Japan's escape room designer Adam Milicevic & 13th floor's evan hedges have come home for 2016's haunt season with one idea in mind: put an escape room in an art gallery and make escapees into art. Voyeuristic peeks from the gallery into a horrific story of human trafficking and organ harvesting will give hints on how to solve the puzzles for you and 5 of your friends at a time in this 30 minute experience.

TRAP HOUSE – SCIFI, HORROR, & SFX ART

Continuing their successful streak as one of the haunt season’s go­to locations in Downtown LA, warehouse­-turned­-arts-­space Think Tank Gallery is pleased to announce the world’s first sci-fi horror art show and escape room mashup. The Think Tank’s Trap House is a scary movie buff’s dream, welcoming a nightmarish trip down memory lane with some of the industry’s most legendary monster and SFX makeup artists while drawing patrons into an immersive escape room experience designed by one of the best in the emerging industry. From October 8th-31st, patrons can experience art and horror in a way never done before.


Featuring work by the legendary dick smith, Anthony lister, mike hill, Andrew Freeman (Immortal Mask), Blake Neubert, Cig Neutron, Scott Hove, Ave Rose, Ben Ploughman, Carl Lyon, and many more; some artists with work solidified in the art historical canon at Guillermo del Toro’s groundbreaking Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) exhibit, Trap House will run as a traditional (and free) art showcase, while drawing patrons into something more sinister: a secret escape room.

with immersive theater podcast No Proscenium. bit.ly/traphousenopro

Teaming up with our friends at sailor jerry and lagunitas brewing company,  production designer eugene johnson has transformed think tank gallery's project room into a decadent and intimate venue, where guests can hang out with a drink and chat about the terror they just survived (or didn't survive), or enjoy one of many events curated for that space. Trap house has invited local event producers, supper clubs, and performance directors to take over the lounge for their own take on trap house. Some events offer a sort of additional chapter to the story.

See a calendar of events below, updated daily. 

House of Punch is a contemporary take on drinking traditions of the past. 200 years before the creation of the cocktail, alcoholic beverages were enjoyed in punches and were a symbol of conviviality, warm fellowship, and spirited gatherings.

We are pleased to bring you a premium lounge experience with this special partnership with House of Punch.
