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

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?

The Blood Map

Farewell to The Blood Map and Hello to…

The Blood Map scenario has had a great run. It was the first scenario that we debuted when we opened back in 2015, and the first scenario that our community got to experience locally. It has been so much more than just a great room. The Blood Map has taught folks that “white equals 7” and that a random bolt isn’t what it seems, to explore every square inch of an escape game, and more importantly, that discovering a hidden room behind a book shelf is one of the best things since sliced bread.    The replacement will be released hopefully […]

Private Bookings NM Escape Room

Public vs. Private

We operated for 2 years having all of our sessions open for booking by groups up to 8 participants. What this means is that if a group of 4 books a scenario, there is the potential that another group of 4 could join them in that same scenario. We did it this way because that was pretty much an industry standard in the United States when we opened. All the various games we played operated under this policy, so we saw nothing wrong with emulating this practice.  We really hadn’t had any negative experiences in either the pairing of strangers in […]

NM Escape Room Team Bonding

Team Bonding

I’ve discussed team building, but team bonding is probably more closely in line with what groups typically experience when they attend a work related event at NM Escape Room. Though we do offer team building extras for those groups who are looking to identify areas where their team dynamic needs improvement, but teams also need to just get away and have a good time.    When a work group comes to just have some fun and let off some steam, the ultimate goal is a good time, but the great thing is they are making memories together to look back on.  That is where the bonding […]

Nefertari's Tomb NM Escape Room

Nefertari’s Tomb

You voted, and now it’s here! We have spent months hammering, drilling, cutting, painting, foam carving, more painting, wiring, hammering, sawing, did I say painting… oh, and more wiring to get this scenario to look and feel like an Egyptian tomb.    Our build team consisted of 6 to 8 staff members, all of whom put their sweat and tears into making this dream become a reality. They all had a hand in bringing Nefertari’s Tomb to life and in my opinion they did an amazing job.   The tomb is over 600 sq.ft and it consists of 3 main puzzle path chambers and a few […]
