Four thumbs up.
May 2021
My spouse and I were at Lake Tahoe for a week and decided on one of the days to check out the Puzzle Room. We booked the Below Ground room and had a lot of fun escaping. It's a linear room (one puzzle follows another) and a bit of a tight squeeze (I would not recommend more than 3 people to do that room or you'll be stepping on each other and people will stand around while one puzzle is being worked on - also there is one room that has 2 identical rooms, so you can break up a bigger group into 2 and have a race to escape). In the game play, we did get one hint which in retrospect was a "duh" clue. - those times when you literally say the answer, then skip over the lock and forget you already know the combination. Anyhow, gamemaster Albert was awesome so we decided once we'd finished Below Ground to go ahead and do Lost Cabin since it was available. It was another linear story, but clever with several of its puzzles, not a lot of locks in this one! We successfully escaped again, and went ahead and booked Valley of the Kings for the following day. Kings is a bigger room with more creative puzzles though a couple were a little more challenging and we did need a couple of hints. We were sure we'd run out of time, but had 3 minutes to spare when we escaped. Albert walked us through all three rooms and took time to explain some mechanics, some changes they're going to make, and to listen to our suggestions (for example, one of the puzzles clearly has "don't touch" on it multiple times, so super easy to skip over). The rooms are a little rough in their design (exposed pipes and wiring, that sort of thing) but they have ambiance, which we love. Do we recommend? Absolutely! And be nice to Albert, he's delightful and when we were there it was all him... gamemaster, welcoming players, scheduling, resetting rooms, and he took the time to chat with us which we really appreciated.

Great Escape Rooms
May 2021 • Friends
My friend and I did 2 rooms (Lost Cabin & Valley of Kings) and thought the rooms were well designed and really fun. I thought the cabin room was a little more intuitive and linear and the Egyptian room was a little more difficult, especially 1 puzzle in particular. But overall good costumer service and room designs. Will be coming back to try the other rooms at some point.

Very fun escape room. It was challenging but doable with a group of 3. Good way to spend a night with friends or family.

Highlight of the Honeymoon in Tahoe
Dec 2020
So I experience a lot with the business and they were awesome.

Here's my story, me and my husband were on our honeymoon and we got in on December 21st. Well my mismanagement of time thought we book for the 23rd but we actually had it for the 22nd. Albert called us as we where getting ready to explore the town on the 22nd and asked if we were coming, which followed with egg on my face. He was so nice and he understood and moved us to the 23rd for the same time no problem. We went in and did Lost Cabin, which we didn't finish the first time. So we book for the next day because I couldn't not finish it and also booked the bunker. Well my husband got food poisoning that night and we had to cancel. I was so sad. Albert called and I told him the situation and I understood we couldn't get our money back and was like its ok no biggie. Albert said no let me see what I can do.

Within the hour I had received a email with a code allowing us to play using the money we had already paid in. As luck would have it we found a day on the 27th and went in and did the puzzle rooms, then booked an additional room because we had so much fun. So we did Lost Cabin, Bunker, and the Egypt one.


Let me tell you there are extra rooms on all of them so work fast. The Egypt room be prepared for a challenge and bring more then 2 people If you can because there are a lot of different little locks and puzzles everyone can work on simultaneously once you make it in the main chamber.

I'd also like to give a shout out to the other male game master, he has brown hair but for the life of me I can't remember his name. He was great, he even took extra time and showed us the rest of the Egypt room since he had time before the next people came in. The room had so many twists and turns.

First escape room
Aug 2020 • Solo
My husband and I booked on a whim. We had never been to an escape room and weren’t quite sure what to expect. Tyler was our game master and he did well to let us try and think it out without too much steering. We didn’t make it out, but in hindsight I misunderstood a clue and ran with it and we wasted time on that. We did the lost cabin because my husband enjoyed the theme. We had a blast!!!! I wished that our trip was a little longer, we would have tried another one no problem. Some reviews we read say it’s dingy or really in need of repair. It wasn’t polished to 100% perfection. But take in mind people go in and get rough with the props. We could see where people tore things off that weren’t meant to be moved. Definitely a fun date for couples, and would do it again. But I would like to try something like this with more people to have fun bouncing ideas between

Super Fun!
Jul 2020
Our family of four (including two teens) enjoy escape rooms, and Puzzle Room Tahoe did not let us down! We took on three of the four rooms during a visit in mid-July: Lost Cabin, Below Ground, and Valley of the Kings. Our favorite was Lost Cabin, but we enjoyed all three rooms. Managed to escape Lost Cabin and Below Ground, but not Valley of the Kings (it's a tough one, for sure!). Highly recommend visiting Puzzle Room Tahoe for some great fun!
