Santa Clarita teen owns and manages Escape Room business

West Ranch High School, Stevenson Ranch, CA

Ethan Harpole, a student at West Ranch High School, started his own escape room business in the Santa Clarita Valley. Each room has a different theme and groups have to solve puzzles and look for clues that will allow them to escape from the room in a given amount of time. As a theater student, Ethan used creativity to put on a show and has now found a way to incorporate his passions into a thriving small business.
