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.

The Escape Effect
Encore at The Escape Effect is a beautifully designed escape room packed with creative puzzles in a gorgeous setting. As a theatre nerd I got a bit giddy upon entering the game. It actually looks like a backstage area in a theatre. The many many puzzles are cleverly hidden throughout the game. Part of the challenge is to figure out your path along the way. One of my favorite things about this escape room is the lighting design. I’ve never seen anything quite like it in an escape room. I found the game quite challenging to play alone, but incredibly fun. I am also impressed with how they snuck all information needed in the game organically so if you don’t have the prior knowledge, you have guides to teach it to you to solve the puzzles. It is a well done game with a lot of heart. I highly recommend it for anyone that enjoys escape rooms, the theatre, or puzzles.
Under Pressure at Escapology Orlando is an exciting, immersive faux underwater submarine adventure. The set design is wonderfully done using technology to create the illusion that the players are actually under water. The sound design is excellent. The puzzles are fun and logical. The game flows well. Overall it’s a fun game with a bit of something for everyone from searching to interactive physical puzzles to more traditional puzzles you might expect in a submarine theme. Thank you to Escapology Orlando for having me in to play. I’d especially recommend this game to families and friend groups.
Quest Room is a highly immersive escape room company that really puts you in the middle of the action. Quest Room is unlike any other escape room company I’ve played. They allow you to be immersed to the point that the standard escape room rules don’t apply and you have to choose to do things that require you to think way outside the box. I highly recommend them.
DOGGY DOG WORLD
This is an incredible romp through the world of a dog, as a dog. Perfect for kids and adults. It’s a unique, immersive escape room in which you really play a part in the story. I highly recommend it.
Note: Jeremiah & I played this game when it was new to ESCapades, it is now owned by Level Games.
