Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update
Due to the recent mandate by our Governor, all escapes will be canceled until further notice. As soon as the mandate is lifted, we will resume our regular business hours. We will continue to honor any deals that have been offered, even beyond their expirations. We hope everyone remains safe and that we see an end to this national emergency soon.
We are Ventura County’s first escape room to also have Virtual Reality!
In order to ensure a spot in My Greatest Escape, you must book your experience in advance, no drop-ins allowed. You can call ahead to see if a booking is available or book online.
Please note, when booking a room, unless you book a private room, other groups may be in the room with you. (Until further notice, this policy has been suspended).
You have 60 minutes in order to solve the room. We recommend you show up 15 minutes early to ensure enough time to provide you with the back story along with some other entertaining information.
Find Clues and Solve our Puzzles
Our escapes are theatrically based; making you part of the actual story. They are extremely challenging with over 25 puzzles to solve. Many of the puzzles are unique and won’t be found in other escape rooms.
What Makes Us Unique
So what makes My Greatest Escape so unique? Many of the puzzles in our rooms were created and built by us. We are also located inside a magic shop, so not only do you get a great escape experience, but you may also get treated to an amazing magic trick.
My Greatest Escape is also part of a 501(c)3 Charitable Organization called The House of MAGIC Foundation for the Arts. When you book your escape room in Santa Paula, Ventura, Simi Valley, Oxnard, Camarillo, or other cities throughout Ventura County, you are supporting the arts. All proceeds raised go towards the various programs we have to offer. In addition, we are the first in Ventura County to not only provide live escapes but Virtual Reality “VR” escape rooms as well.
What to Expect
For those of you who have never experienced an escape room, here is what you can expect:
Many escape rooms are different, but the results are the same. You have an allotted time (ours is 60 minutes) to find the clues and solve the mystery. Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by friendly staff and given a backstory to your mission. Once you enter the room a video will be played providing you with further information. At the conclusion of the video, your timer begins and you start to solve puzzles that lead you closer to accomplishing your mission. Our escape room is a non-scare room and is family-friendly. AT NO TIME ARE THE ROOMS EVER LOCKED, you can leave at any time. HouDoneIt? is a two-room escape and Mission Impossible is a one-room escape. During your time, you may ask up to five hints that lead you closer to a solution. After you have exceeded five hints, you are on your own. Good luck and enjoy the challenge.
Who Can Play
My Greatest Escape is a family-friendly, non-scare, escape room. We are located in Santa Paula in Ventura County. It is great for families and friends, tourists, gamers, businesses, team-building exercises, and more. Our escape room is located on the second floor and is not wheelchair accessible, unfortunately, stairs are involved. Rooms are recommended for players 15 years of age or older. We can accept parties of 6 people or less in each of our rooms. UNLESS YOU BOOK A PRIVATE EXPERIENCE, YOU ARE NOT GUARANTEED TO HAVE THE ROOM TO YOURSELF. Teams under the age of 15 will be escorted through the escape with an adult guide.

How to find us – It’s a little tricky…
We are in an industrial complex, which can make it a little difficult to find. We are located in the Westgate Property Complex. Although our address is W. Telegraph, you actually need to turn down Beckwith in order to get to our building, which is building B. Once you turn down Beckwith, our parking lot is the second left-hand entrance. If you take the first left-hand turn, you will be on the backside of our unit. Good luck… If you find us, you will have completed have the escape!
