The ABQ-Live Interns took a trip to The NM Escape Room. They survived with a few tales to tell.
I walk in with three other people. I have no idea what to look for or where to start. There are locks everywhere and somehow we have to figure out how to unlock them. There are hidden clues throughout the room, and all we have to do is use these clues to solve puzzles. It sounds simple, right? But when you are being timed, suddenly the pressure to finish is on. As we find the rest of our group, we all come together to solve the puzzles we wouldn’t be able to solve alone. The Escape Room here in Albuquerque was the perfect way to give our group the push we needed to work together. I was surrounded by people I had only known for two weeks, some I had just met that day, but somehow we all came out acting like we had known one another for years. The Escape Room has great opportunities for team building and getting to know one another. Can you beat the time?

I’m locked in a room with eight other people. A room filled with codes, locks, and puzzles. A friend of mine was working on a report that could possibly connect the Watergate scandal to the assassination of JFK. I have an hour to find the article and publish it. Can I do it? One clue leads to another but all of a sudden I’m stumped. The only way to make it out is by coming together with my group to solve the mystery and escape. The Escape Room in Albuquerque provided me with the chance work together and collaborate on ideas to solve clues with people that I had barely met. The tasks are simple, but when the clock is ticking and the next clue is nowhere to be found, emotions run high and suddenly everyone is in a scramble to find it.
