Burglar breaks into “escape room” business, panics, and calls 911
A burglar in Vancouver, Washington made four panicked 911 calls after breaking into an “escape room” business last weekend—and having trouble getting out.
Escape rooms are timed challenges that let groups of customers test their wits against a series of intricate puzzles. But NW Escape Experience’s three escape rooms apparently so unnerved accused burglar Rye Wardlaw that he called 911 on himself.
The company offers customers three different rooms to choose from, including the “Kill Room,” described by the Washington Post as “blood-spattered and designed to look like a serial killer’s basement hideout.”
