From creepy themes to chilling thrillers and to horror movies with actors involved, you can decide just how scared you want to be when trying to make a successful escape! Most of the rooms aren't actually meant to scare you too much, just remember: your objective is to escape with your life. Ghosts, zombies and serial killers of Phoenix are dying to meet you!
So, I did not escape this room :(. However, despite my failure I have to rate this 5/5 because it was phenomenal. This is the hardest room they have and by FAR the hardest room I've ever done. I truly felt that I lost this room fairly and squarely (and I don't say this often lol). Before starting this room, you have a choice of picking it in difficult mode and of course being with fellow avid players, they chose the HARDEST MODE. That was our first mistake. I probably wouldn't pick the hard mode unless you had at least 5 people all of whom have done 20-30+ rooms. This was a true v4 room with little to no keys/locks. Lots of puzzles to solve and definitely a lot of puzzles that I have NEVER SEEN and was WOW'd once clue master explained it to us. This room put lots of different skills to the test and made us quickly realize our weaknesses. I highly recommend this room!Sharon T.
Great room and awesome owners! Looking forward to the next ones opening!James
The 4 of us did Nora's Nightmare. Fun room, really enjoyed it. The room had a good combination of locks, puzzles and electronics. The room flowed really well. Have done many rooms and this ranks at the top! We will definitely be back for the Houdini room when it opens!Nancy M.
Played Nora's Nightmare yesterday and, it turned out, we were the first group to play the room since it officially opened. As enthusiasts (almost 200 rooms played), we're always hesitant to try a brand new game as we've quickly learned it's much better to give them some time (even after beta testing) to fine tune things and make sure it runs they way they intended. But since we were jonesing for a room, we decided to go for it.Terra S.
From the first point of contact, via FB messenger, their customer service was spot on. The owner (I'm so sorry I don't remember her name) was friendly, very accommodating and responded to my inquiries quickly.
As for the room, we enjoyed it quite a bit! I loved the unique theme and really liked the thought and details that were put into the aesthetics of the room. The puzzles are a good mix of lock & key as well as some tech so it should easily appeal to a variety of players. They are not overly difficult but they do still provide a good challenge and make you slow down to think. We are a two-person team and we finished with time to spare.
Afterwards, we spent quite a bit of time talking shop with the owner. She was very personable and didn't make us feel rushed or like she had something better to do. I know I already said it, but the customer service was on point with Puzzling Escape. As much as we love playing rooms, we also love talking with the owners and staff about the experience as well as about escape rooms in general. We really enjoy hearing about what went into the design and development of their rooms and just learning about how it all started for them. We can't wait for their other rooms to open.
Nora's Nightmare is a fun time for anyone looking for something neat to do. Regardless of your level of experience, get out there and play this game. You'll be glad you did.
Took my sister here and we did the VR- Hospital of Horrors experience. It was AMAZING! Staff is so friendly, and was extremely helpful. Will definitely be back!Rebecca F.
This escape room was much different then others. It required real life thinking and problem solving. It was super fun and interactive. Was definitely well thought out. Would highly recommend!Ashley C
