I had a rootin’ tootin’ grand ole time in this fully immersive Wild West escape game. I felt like a real old fashioned cowgirl trying to break out of jail with the physical puzzles that required me to use not only my brain power but other skills as well. One of the most impressive things was the set decor. You could easily forget that you were in a building in the year 2016 because of the impressive set design. The props were made to stand up to the roughest of cowboys. The puzzles were a good mix of physical and mental challenges. It isn’t the most difficult room and the gamemaster is willing to give assistance, so it’s great for beginners. I had a lot of fun playing it as an experienced player, but if you have a large team of experienced players I might suggest playing a more difficult game at this location. The staff here was outstanding, which made the whole experience even better. I actually came back later that day with a friend to play Kidnapped based on how much fun I had in Wild West by myself earlier that day.
Below is a list of the Escape Rooms I’ve played organized in order of MY favorite to least favorite in each city. Note: I especially enjoy horror, paranormal & magic themed escape rooms, so my preferences may be different than yours. Feel free to tweet me questions.
ARIZONA ESCAPE ROOM LIST:
The Great Room Escape – Spell Bound
Eludesions – Mad Hatter
Escape Westgate – Bill & Ted’s Excellent Escape Room
Phoenix Puzzle Room: The Curse of Madame Lumina
PanIQ Room: Kidnapped
*Phoenix Puzzle Room: Competition Room
*This last room (Phoenix Puzzle Room: Competition Room) isn’t last on the list due to preference. I had a lot of fun playing this game! I am placing it at the end because it’s really it’s own category. It’s so unique that it doesn’t quite fit in with typical escape rooms. It is a puzzle competition room.
The Sleuth Box: The Study
Escape Zone AZ: Rush Hour
Dare to Escape AZ: X-Child
Escape This Live: Queen Anne’s Revenge
Escape Adventure: Escape the Dead
Escape the Room AZ: The Submarine
Baffled Escape Rooms: The Trap
We had a fun time in the 80’s Rec Room room. It was neat to be reminded of things from childhood during the game. I love the decor. I wasn’t happy that a key puzzle/game had been updated from the original version to a more modern version making it very difficult. Overall the puzzles were creative and fun. There was only one room in this game, but they have other games at this location. You escape out of the same door in which you entered. This is the only room I’ve done in AZ so far.
