Booking Upgrade to Semi-Private

As many of you know, at NM Escape Room we currently operate with sessions that are private bookings; this means that a booked session comprised of at least 4 participants secures the game private for that group, and no one else can access the unbooked spots in that session. This has been very well received as the majority of customer groups prefer to play the escape game only with people they know as opposed to playing the game with strangers. The draw back to private bookings with a participant minimum is that it doesn’t allow for groups of less than […]

A Little History—How Did Escape Room Scenarios Originate?

Escape rooms have taken America by storm over the past several years. A seemingly overnight phenomenon, they actually date back over a decade.

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 […]
