WHAT OUR VISITORS THINK

  • Daniel Alexander
    Hands down the most fun in Albuquerque I've ever had! The amount of detail these guys went into really made us lose ourselves into the room. I felt like a real detective! Definitely going back for all the other rooms.

  • Sonya Romero
    So fun! I was lucky to have an awesome group of people working our room. The plot was interesting, the puzzles were challenging, and the props were top notch. I can't wait to go back and try the other rooms!!
    Sonya Romero
  • Kyle Frederickson
    My friends and I went 3 for 3 with the rooms here and loved every single one. Each was a unique experience and we can't wait for more rooms to open up. If you're on the fence about going then I highly highly recommend you give it a shot. Make sure you go with a full group! It's more fun in my opinion.

  • Holly Olivarez
    Brilliant idea and convenient location! Our family enjoyed beginning to end and appreciate the time and effort that went into creating the rooms! There is so much ingenuity and detail involved, and we are the lucky ones to get to try and solve the case!
    Holly Olivarez
  • Tara Crace
    Absolutely worth it! I cannot wait to do the next one! We didn't escape but had so much fun in the process! It really boosts your self confidence too when you actually figure out a clue... so much fun, totally recommend it!

SCENARIOS

For decades, the city’s greatest criminal syndicates have answered to one man, Vittorio Bosargio. He is known as the Don of Dons, holding power over multiple criminal organizations, but lately his judgement has been questionable and unstable. He is slowly slipping into madness. You’ve been summoned, along with other organizational heads, to meet in a secret location and discuss the fate of the highly respected, but faltering Don. Unfortunately, your betrayal doesn’t go unnoticed. Someone has double crossed you, and now it’s a race against the clock to survive. Can you outsmart Don Vittorio Bosargio?

You are tomb robbers serving a criminal organization, led by the mysterious Arnold von Dunkelheit. For years, Dunkelheit has suspected that the supposed tomb of one of Egypt’s greatest queens - Queen Nefertari - was not actually her final resting place. Known as Site QV66, it was rumored to hold the greatest treasures of Ramesses II, and said to contain the Golden Hall - a magical chamber where the dead could be resurrected. But when the tomb was opened in 1904 the treasures were all missing, and there was no evidence of any secrets to eternal life.

You have just received an urgent call from a legal representative with your late grandmother’s attorney’s office who wants to discuss the final item outlined in her Last Will and Testament. Your grandmother has left you some sort of jewel, a true mystery, as no one in the family has ever heard of it. The estate has been thoroughly searched, her safety deposit box emptied, and her home safe cleared, but nothing has been found to solve the whereabouts of this mysterious “jewel”.




After a little too much fun the night prior at the local saloon, you vaguely remember that you have been challenged to a duel by a mysterious stranger. The duel will take place today at dusk. Unfortunately, you have misplaced your gun and other items. You must re-trace your steps from the prior night’s events and return to the saloon where the bartender has agreed to give you and your posse one hour to retrieve your lost items which include: your pistol, your lucky rabbit’s foot, and your courage. You also are hoping this will trigger you to recall the name of the person you’ll be dueling. Exit the saloon with these trusted, lucky items and the name of your dueling partner within the hour, and there’s no way you’ll lose. Don’t find them, and you may as well leave town!

You are the lead detective on the murder case you have just received a tip that has led you to the secluded, hunting cabin that the suspected serial killer is said to use as his hideaway. You don’t have enough evidence to get a warrant, you don’t even know the true identity of the killer, and time is of the essence. You must get to the cabin, use the clues to lead you to the true identity of the killer, and escape before the killer returns. You only have 60 minutes…will you and your team be able to get in, accomplish the task & get out in time?

Here’s How Puzzle-Solving Works in Your Brain

From the initial dilemma to the satisfying “eureka moment,” puzzle-solving is a complex process in the human brain. In addition to being fun, puzzle-solving is also beneficial, increasing your brain’s efficiency and memory capacity. Here is a breakdown of what happens in your brain when solving puzzles, why finally finding the solution is so satisfying, and the benefits it provides to our minds and bodies. Your Brain on Puzzles Human brains are made of two separate hemispheres, known as the right brain and left brain. They work together beautifully, but each half performs its own specific functions: the right side […]

Support Local

Support local! We hear it all the time, but sometimes it’s tough to do, and we don’t always know whether the establishments we frequent are locally owned businesses or not.  Did you know that we have 3 locally owned and operated escape game companies in Albuquerque? NM Escape Room has been around since early 2015, along with Esquape It since late 2015 and Abq Xcape Room since late 2016. All of these games are very different, but very well done. We appreciate the creativity and efforts of our local owners, and are glad to share the industry and this town […]

Happy New Year!

We’ve got lots in store for 2018! We are excited to announce the opening in early April of our newest escape game, Bombshell! It will be joining it’s counterpart, Nefertari’s Tomb, located at our facility on 4401 Mcleod Rd NE. This game will start out with an important goal in mind as the mob bosses from crime syndicates all over the city convene to discuss the pressing matter of a shared enemy, Don Bosargio. He’s a quirky eccentric who doesn’t respect the old ways, and is reeking havoc all over the city, disrespecting other crime families, and trespassing on their territories. […]

Linear Vs. Multi-path

Recently I’ve had some conversations with customers regarding their favorite game design styles. Specifically, we were comparing a more linear game play style where one clue leads to the next and so on, vs. a multi path game where the linearity is broken up by multiple steps that ultimately lead to the grand finale. Both styles in my opinion can be fun, but watching customers play over these past few years has made me favor a multi path design over a linear one.    The pros of a linear game are: It’s sometimes easier to make connections and recognize the […]
