NM Escape Room - The Family Jewels

New Year, New Room!

Sadly, we have decided to retire our Unpublished scenario. It had a good run for a full year. This will make a great deal of folks sad, but that one guy who yelled, “It Sucked!” upon not beating the room will be quite pleased to see it go.    On a happier note, we have a new scenario designed to take its place! We hope to have the build completed by the end of January 2017. This room will include a bit more tech than our other scenarios, but will still offer the challenging puzzles and thematic setting and back story that our fans […]

NM Escape Room Famiiy Game Night

Family Game Night 2.0

One of the coolest things we get to witness is families reuniting at our NM Escape Room during the holidays. We see all generations of one family come together to play a game. It is reminiscent of the family board game nights that were popular when I was growing up. I know that families still practice this ritual of fun and togetherness, but in addition to that, they are now playing escape room games. It always warms our hearts to see the grandmother so encouraging and proud of her grand child as he/she puzzles through the escape room game. And to see grandpa directing […]

Teambuilding NM Escape Room

Team Building at NM Escape Room

Team building opportunities: something we planned to offer from the inception of this company, but the response has been positively overwhelming! We knew we would need to get the word out about us and this new opportunity for team building in our city, but we weren’t aware of just how great the need was and is for this type of team building. The New Mexico Escape Room is one of the few, local facilities where teams actually have to work together to complete the tasks and puzzles and accomplish a successful room escape (while being locked in a room together, AND within […]

Halloween at the Escape Room! No place better!

It’s beginning to get a bit spooky around here! The New Mexico Escape Room’s Cabin scenario-room is the perfect excuse to get the seasonal fright out of your system. This scenario has that creepy, dark feel and also induces some blood curdling screams along the way. On top of the creep factor, the game itself tells the story of the notorious serial killer who goes by the pseudonym, Simon Says. Small pieces of his disturbed life are revealed as you unravel the mystery and unlock his dark secrets. He’s taunted you with a message boasting a latest victim who is […]

Back to School NM Escape Room

Back to school! Ugh!

Back to school season is here! Ugh! My kiddos are almost grown, but the back to school season still reminds me of a stressful time. The hustle and bustle begins again with school supplies and clothes shopping, fees for this and that, sports tryouts, and just getting back into the Fall schedule amongst other things… it’s just a busy time. Amidst all this back to school business, we do see an increase in college-aged students and their families attending NM Escape Room. It’s usually a last attempt at some family fun before they return to their colleges and universities most […]

The Cabin Scenario

Ever wonder if you have what it takes to catch a killer? There’s a lot to do in Albuquerque, but nothing quite like this!  Can you meet the challenge…of finding the clues & the murder weapon and escaping without being caught by the killer himself? This second room offers a more advanced, live escape scenario; it should be attempted only if you are brave or have had experience with escape games before.

nsert your content hereetting locked up is now a form of entertainment in Albuquerque. Not in a jail cell, of course, but in specially designed quarters stocked with clues and puzzles intended to assist occupants as they try to make their exit.

Working in teams of up to eight, customers have one hour to mentally maneuver their way out of a locked room by decoding messages and solving puzzles. They pay $28 apiece for the experience.

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Inside a strip mall near Carlisle and Comanche sits a strange room filled with antiques and a lot of locks. It’s called NM Escape Room, a new attraction geared towards puzzle solvers of all ages. Teams of between two to eight players are locked inside and have 60 minutes to scour the room for the clues needed to escape. “Right now as it sits, about 25 percent of the people get out,” said business owner Darren Guido. “Our fastest time right now is 47 minutes, 35 seconds.” So far, NM Escape Room has just one of its rooms built […]
