Best of Phoenix Escape Rooms

Updated: Sep 25

We make tabletop puzzle games because we were spending far too much time playing board games and escape rooms, so we thought it would be more time efficient to combine the two. Well, jokes on us because now we play board games and escape rooms AND escape room board games.

When not puzzling over conundrums in Hincksville, we love keeping up with the escape room scene in our second favorite city, Phoenix, Arizona.

There are 136 escape games (and counting) at 34 businesses (and counting) in the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan area.

How to choose where and what to play?

*Note: We can't guarantee that any of the rooms listed below have been maintained to the level they were at when we played them.


Evil Robots

The Nemesis Club (Phoenix)

Budget time to grab a world-class milkshake at their secret entrance.

The Nemesis Club (Phoenix)

Both Evil Robots and Mogollon Monster are fantastic. If you are only going to be able to play one, we'd recommend Mogollon Monster.
