Is there an adjective that means "hard to get out from"? Like an adjective that means "labyrinth-like" or more generally "hard to get out or off from". For example:

Theses vines are ____.

This huge old mansion is ____.


Very literally, you could use "labyrinthine". This could work for "This huge mansion is labyrinthine", but it would be awkward to say "These vines are labyrinthine".

The vines could be "inescapable". If you are not yet in the vines, you could say they are "impenetrable" or "impassable" meaning you can't get into them.
