Exciting Escape Room Scenarios in Albuquerque, NM
New Mexico Escape Room offers six different escape room scenarios designed to fully immerse players into a comprehensive story in a realistic setting. Our high-quality scenarios give players an escape room experience like no other!
What to Expect
Many people feel anxious before their visit because they don’t know what to expect. Don’t worry—an escape room isn’t frightening, but it’s certainly suspenseful. The rooms aren’t tiny, so you won’t feel claustrophobic, but you will share the space with teammates. While you need not be an athlete, you’ll need to move around the room searching for clues. There will be noise. You’ll be bonding with teammates, laughing, and maybe even yelling, depending on how excited or frustrated you get! You’ll probably experience a range of emotions, from confusion to stress to excitement. But at the end of the game, whether you’ve escaped in 60 minutes or not, you’ll feel a sense of achievement that you and your team solved the puzzle. Visit our FAQ to learn more.

Synopsis: The old Blackwell Manor has sat vacant for over a century upon a lonely hill just outside of town.

No one from town dares to step foot within its crumbling frame. If you listen closely enough on a stormy night, you can hear the blood-curdling screams coming from the house's direction. You have been challenged to spend just one hour locked inside the manor. The bragging rights alone are worth it. There's no such thing as ghosts, right?

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: 6 / 10
Synopsis: 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.
The situation didn’t add up, and after decades of searching, Dunkelheit’s group has finally located what may be the real tomb of Nefertari. Armed with a list of long-lost treasures, you must dynamite your way into the tomb, steal everything they can find, and escape before the local authorities and meddling hero-archaeologists arrive. Authorities have been tracking your group, and will arrive in 60 minutes. If Dunkelheit can’t have all the treasures, no one can - once the mission is finished, you must blow up the tomb to bury your tracks and make your escape.
Note: Nefertari's Tomb is an advanced escape game that is geared at an experienced audience. If your group hasn't participated in multiple escape scenarios, we suggest that you consider one of our other offerings before you venture into Nefertari's Tomb
