Welcome to my blog


I’m Christine, a gal obsessed with haunts, escape rooms and other oddities.

This blog is a passion project of mine. The fact that I personally do all of the reviews here and on my YouTube channel is what really makes TheHauntGirl.com stand out from other review sites. There is no team, just me. Most of my entries are about the west coast since that is where I live, however I also love to travel. In 2018 I was approached by USA Today to be one of their Ten Best List experts for haunted attractions & escape rooms. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel & sign up for my newsletter for updates & discount codes.

Thanks for stopping by!

ANNOUNCEMENT – Clue Quest Valentine’s Escape Game – Play From Home


Valentine’s Special: Mechanics of the Heart

  •  Hide a personalized message into the game
  •  Remind your friends or love how much they mean to you
  •  Fewest printed pages
  •  Aligns perfectly with Valentine’s Day
  •  It brings you closer to those you love

Mission Brief

New to Print+Cut+Escape, and a first for any play at home escape game, hide a personalised message into the game to remind your friends or significant others how much they mean to you, and teach MM7 about the heart in the process! Mechanics of the Heart shows love to our planet with the fewest printed pages, while not compromising on the volume of puzzles. The timing of this new mission aligns perfectly with Valentine’s Day, but its story and how it brings you closer to those you love will stand the test of time.


Mr. and Mrs. Q’s helpful and reliable reconnaissance droid, MM7, is starting to ask questions all robots inevitably ask, “What is Love?” and “How do you know you’re loved?” You’ll be tasked to help MM7 decipher the complex and puzzling ways of love in our world in order to help focus him on our daily mission to save the world from the villainous network of the Evil Professor.

ANNOUNCEMENT – Together at Heart – Online


Your puzzle solving and communication skills will be put to the test. Control mysterious gadgets and work your way through a two-player online escape experience. Collect items and share them with your teammate using the new items transfer feature. Help each other discover the truth of an enigmatic device and find out how the many items and controls you find can assist you. Use your new found skills to finally fix what was broken and escape the machine! Using two separate devices, play with a friend on the couch, or even across the globe on the phone or video chat!

This is the third installment of the puzzle game series: Alone Together. Try the last two games: Alone Together and the second Together-Apart.
