The world might never again be like it was. Ever since an all-powerful artificial intelligence went rogue and took control of a nuclear arsenal or two, the world has been in tatters. Luckily, things can’t get any worse. Oh wait, of course they can. With just hours before the A.I. gains even more power and things get immeasurably worse, a nervous young scientist pulls you and your team aside. He tells you that the only way to stop A.L.I.S.O.N. (the Artificial Lifeform-Intelligence System of Optimized Networks, that is) now is to travel back to the beginning of the company that would one day build it and find a way to thwart those plans before any of this can ever happen. Due to the limitations of the time machine, you’ll only have one hour within the alarming orange walls of Inspire Labs’s 1960s Headquarters to save the future. Are you up for the challenge? You’re running out of time. Ready to see what else INSPiRE LABS has in store? Try out 2233: Evil AI!

We did the 1960: Escape to the Future today, and it was a blast!  Apparently this is one of the more difficult rooms to escape from, but with the excellent clues from guide Sarah, who was very friendly and fun, we made it through with 10 minutes to spare.  Good room for group problem-solving, collaboration, and creative thinking. Highly recommend Room Escape Fairfax!”


“We (a family of 4) did the 1960 themed escape room here and loved it! By far the best experience we have had at an escape room with staff (thank you Alex S!) and the clues themselves. Plus they made sure to make the room very safe and clean and every staff member wore a mask. Highly recommend stopping in for an hour to test your skills!”

“The puzzles and the story were so well thought-out and executed, and the whole atmosphere was so immersive. I had a LOT of fun with 1960: History of the Future – it was challenging, but every single time we figured a puzzle out and got a step closer, it was super satisfying (I definitely recommend that room!!). The staff is also amazing and great to talk to – shout out to Eli for being an awesome game master!!”
