It’s 2033 and we’re hackers in transport to maximum security prison to spend the rest of our days tech-less and very sad.

Well, we can’t have that.

Fortunately, this is only a game – an escape room game, to be exact. And rather than an actual prison bus, “Firewall,” the name of Orange County-based The Escape Bus’s hacker-themed game, is set on a repurposed school bus.

Founded by Tyler Russell and Jonathan Katz, The Escape Bus will be traveling through Orange County and Southern California to satisfy the cravings of escape room junkies jonesing for their next mind-bending fix.

Open to players 12 years and older in groups of two to six (with four being the magic number for bus size and strategy), the game runs 45 minutes – though there is a shorter, 20-minute version available.

The game will definitely test your mental skills and the bus is a fun setting for the endeavor. The creators did a great job of using the space wisely and added some unique technology to bolster the escape room experience.

The Escape Bus is an engaging addition to the Southern California escape room landscape.

Where’s the Bus?
