No one has a clue where she is, but one day you come across a letter in which your grandmother reveals a secret about her inheritance. All you have to do is to go into her house and find it -- simple, right? We'll see about that.

Escaped in: 33:51 (Second place of all time!)

I did this room for my birthday (highly recommend 60out's mailing list, lots of great discounts and free birthday games). One of my favorite escape rooms in terms of sets and narratives and a great one for beginners! The room is fairly linear, so I wouldn't recommend more than 5 people (maybe 6 if everyone is a beginner).

Positive things:
-staff is incredible (shout out to Nick who was an enthusiastic gamemaster for an extremely late game- no but seriously, probably the best gamemaster I've ever had)
-one of the few rooms where the narrative actually came into the puzzles
-some outstanding puzzles that stick in your mind afterwards (simple, but all technologically advanced)
-great feedback- once you solve a puzzle, you know you're done!
-THE SETS. Wow, the sets and props are well made

Negative things:
-as stated before, fairly linear, but this is okay as long as you don't go with too big a group
-some labels were faded, but after pointing it out to the GM, he said he'd take a look and fix it for next game
== not really any negative things!

Didn't know what to expect with my second escape room but game master Mikey took care of any questions or concerns I had before the game. We did grandma's masterplan and the game had a cool storyline from start to finish, inventive puzzles, and it was overall just really good. They had other games/ themes so I'm looking forward to going back and trying the other ones out.

Our second ever escape room was ghost ship and our 15th escape was grandma's masterplan. Grandma's master plan was GREAT and flowed very well. There was literally no puzzle in there where i was thinking the puzzle didn't flow well. We escaped with about 20 min left in a 75 min time limit.

Nick and Andrew were great game masters!

I've done over 125 escape rooms in Seattle, LA, New Orleans, Houston, and the Bay Area. I actively travel and seek out the best escape rooms in the US, so this review is catered specifically to enthusiasts looking for unique, high quality rooms.

I've done over 125 escape rooms in Seattle, LA, New Orleans, Houston, and the Bay Area. I actively travel and seek out the best escape rooms in the US, so this review is catered specifically to enthusiasts looking for unique, high quality rooms.

Grandma's Master Plan - mid 4/5 | Rank 36/145 (Good room with a little something that makes the room distinctive. We will happily recommend these rooms to travelling enthusiasts or locals.)

Grandma's appears to be one of 60 Out's oldest rooms, and seems to be holding up fairly well over time. While the actual gameplay/puzzles are sort of showing their age, good stories / humor hold up much better over time, and the first half of Grandma's is full of that. This is a polished but a bit old standard escape room with a great theme/story in the first half, and a more disappointing second half. I really enjoy story/humor, so I think that this is still a good room for enthusiasts who enjoy that as well, and maybe less good for the people who care more about puzzles / set. Given that this is an old room, I'd really like to see the room be renovated and modernized - it's still a pretty unique room that has held up over time, and there's some potential for this to be great.

Set - The set starts off in your standard boring apartment set, but the theming of this being your beloved grandma allows the room to get a lot more out of this set than you would expect. There are constant reminders of your grandma and her life scattered around the room, and it adds an element of love to the room that you don't normally see compared to other sets where you're exploring the room of some rando serial killer. The later half of the game evolves the set in interesting and varied ways, though it loses a bit of the charm as the game regresses to a more standard type of set devoid of Grandma's love.

Story - Grandma is quite a character, and learning about her life and exploits is really whats makes this game as enjoyable as it was. There wasn't even that much in the room relatively speaking, but what was there was really fun and a treat to see. The story has a clear progression and there are certainly some twists along the way. The puzzles in the first half of the game were extremely on theme, and hilarious overall - the puzzles in the later half were also on theme, but much less fun due to the subject matter My main complaint was again, in the later half of the game, where the ending is fairly anti-climactic and grandma's involvement was minimal. Given how grandma is the emotional center of the room, it would have been nice if she was more involved in the later half of the game, and if the feel of the room actually lasted to the end of the room rather than turning into something way more generic.

Puzzles - The puzzles were fine, but standard and indicative of the rooms age. I remember a couple of neat puzzles that involved some physical props, but nothing else terribly memorable.

Player Recs - Same as always, enthusiasts should bring the minimum, beginners should bring around halfway between the minimum and maximum.

Personal Stats - Escaped with 3 enthusiasts in ~70 mins taking some hints.

We enjoyed the Grandma's Masterplan a lot!! It is really an adventure just going through it. We were drawn to the 75 minute limit. Knowing it was more difficult than the others, we knew we had to get going, but we were stuck a couple times! We finally made it out! Awesome experience!

We completed Grandmas Masterplan and thought it was one of the best rooms that we've ever played. The room is linear so one clue leads to another and it is far smarter than purely putting padlocks on things. It's a little bit pricier than other rooms and this particular one lasts 75...

It's a little bit pricier than other rooms and this particular one lasts 75 minutes but we thought it provided good value for money.

Great Escape Experience!
We googled 'the most difficult escape room in the Los Angeles area' and Grandma's Master Plan at 60out Melrose was what we came up with. When we contacted the staff on site they even suggested that we might try an easier room, as Grandma's Master Plan is quite difficult!...

Our group of seven family members took 74:46 entertaining minutes to attain our freedom! What fun! Five rooms of interconnected puzzles, solved by using strategy, teamwork, clues and a few extra hints! Grandma's Master Plan was definitely one of the most creative, well organized and entertaining escape rooms that we have attempted! We would love to try another 60out escape room when visiting Southern California in the future.
