Albuquerque & Santa Fe, New Mexico: Escape Room Recommendations

Latest update: August 7, 2022

The Albuquerque escape room scene is heavily influenced by the film industry. The sets truly impressed us. These were complemented by fun characters that elevated the games. The best escape games in Albuquerque transported us to different worlds.

Drive down the road (I-25) about an hour and you’ll get to Santa Fe, home of the original Meow Wolf creation The House of Eternal Return. Do yourself a favor and take a day trip to experience this wondrous place. Pop into Puzzah! while you’re in town to experience a wholly different style of escape game.

In June of 2022 we hosted Escape Immerse Explore New Mexico… and here’s what our post-event survey says are the favorite games in the region.

Something Different

Meow Wolf’s The House of Eternal Return is surely different, and absolutely worth the ticket price.

The St. James Tea Room in Albuquerque is a delightful dining experience where the theme of the meal changes monthly. The food, tea, and ambiance were fantastic.

Puzzah! in Santa Fe offers a family-friendly automated style of game design.

In Albuquerque, we also recommend a visit to Electric Playhouse for a couple of hours of projection mapping gaming.
