For certain, the prospect of jail is enough to keep some people on track; but, for others, prison is merely a challenge, a mystery that must be solved. Here’s a carefully compiled list of the most creative prison escapes ever!

El Chapo’s spectacular escape

Well, El Chapo’s epic story needs to be at the top of the chart. With the assistance of bribed prisoners, Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, Mexico’s most infamous drug lord, escaped from a high-security jail in a laundry cart in 2011. El Chapo’s cell door was unlocked by one guard, who assisted him in climbing into the cart by the other. They dragged him outside, and he jumped into the trunk of a Chevrolet Monte Carlo. It took 13 years for officials to apprehend him. Chapo, on the other hand, didn’t last in jail for long.

After just 17 months, he stepped into a maximum-security prison bathroom and crawled to freedom into a mile-long tunnel designed only for him. The tunnel had proper ventilation, and even a modified motorcycle on tracks. El Chapo was captured in January 2016 and is now imprisoned in the United States.

Wooden gun to the rescue

John Herbert Dillinger Jr. was a bank thief from the United States who dodged arrest twice during his career. He was taken into custody and locked up in Lima in the autumn of 1933 after robbing two banks.

After impersonating Indiana State Prison officers, the gang returned to the same prison a few days later and freed Dillinger. He was caught a year later and sent to Crown Point Jail, a notoriously difficult-to-escape facility. There, Dillinger carved a piece of wood into a rifle, used it to kidnap 17 men, and then escaped!

Britain’s Epic Prison Break

In 1983, Britain’s largest prison break occurred at, Europe’s most escape-proof prison. A gang of about 20 inmates took over one of the prison blocks with weapons they’d smuggled in, keeping guards hostage to prevent an alarm from being sounded. Then they stole guard uniforms and made their way to the gate as a group. While a few were finally captured, 35 men managed to cross the perimeter and escape.

The Korean Artist

Choi Gap-bok, a yoga teacher from South Korea, demonstrated to the world that the ancient discipline can be used for more than just exercise and relaxing. Choi was detained on suspicion of theft in September 2012 and placed in a holding cell at the Daegu police station. He was there for five days before applying skin ointment to his body and squeezing through the tiny food slot in the cell bars in 34 seconds as the guards slept.
The food slot was just 15 centimeters tall and 45 centimeters deep. Choi’s yoga skills helped him get out of prison, but they weren’t enough to deter him from returning. Choi was captured by the police six days after his breakout, and this time he was assigned to jail with a much smaller food slot.
