ConFundrum Escape Rooms is a fledgling escape room enterprise that has the polish and sheen of a long-standing business, and its craft goes deeper than its veneer. Along with the good looks comes a pleasant, rewarding interior experience replete with satisfying puzzles, friendly service, and fantastic room design. Fans of escape rooms should not miss ConFundrum, and newcomers to the world of escape rooms will feel welcome and at ease thanks to flexible hint policies and helpful staff.

In short, ConFundrum is awesome, and it is more than worth a visit or three.

Thank you for the high praise and kind words! We strive to provide a wonderful experience for everyone that attends and strongly believe that the adventure is only memorable if it takes you outside the norm.

We hope to see you back for our other games.

In passing through Idaho Falls on vacation we thought we'd check out if there were any escape rooms that would make a fun pit stop on our way west. We booked with ConFundrum and were really happy with our experience-- the escape room was challenging and the puzzles were top-notch. The owner was especially friendly, and since we were visiting in town, he even gave us a tour of the other room that was currently under construction. I would highly recommend this escape room to anyone looking for a well-designed, challenging, and fun activity!

It was a pleasure having you visit us while traveling through Idaho Falls. We have a passion for escape games and love to share the experience with others that share our passion. Thank you for the kind words and high recommendations to others. When enthusiasts such as you give us such glowing after having played other games across the country, it is truly a humbling experience.

It is a wonderful to see people appreciate the difficulty of the puzzles and the rush that comes from successfully solving them.

We look forward to seeing you if your travels ever bring you back to Idaho Falls.

PUZZLE: The owners have obviously put a lot of thought and effort into their Sherlock Holmes room experience. The puzzles are fun and creative, and you are working the whole time you are there. They offer clues upon request, which is a nice way to do it, I think.

ATMOSPHERE: The atmosphere of the business itself has potential. It currently looks like a work in progress, with an open seating area when you first walk in, but no front desk or greeter, so you feel like you've walked in after hours.

PRICE: For this area, the game is too expensive. I know they have to make rent, but the other game experience in this city (which is no less creative and has three available rooms) is $15, and the one in Rexburg (also three available rooms and only 30 minutes away) is $12. Their prices, though average for escape rooms in big cities, are not competitive for small towns. They did offer a 15% grand opening discount (which still put the room at $22).

Overall, it was an interesting and fun experience which, if I had the funds, I would repeat.

Thank you for your honest and well organized review. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience and the knowledge that you would be happy to return for another game.

Each of our games offers a multiroom experience and as such offers a richer experience than the other local escape games you mentioned. Just like a play that has multiple acts to expand the experience and keep you guessing, our games offer multiple rooms, thus you never know how long you will need in any one room and keeps the adrenaline pumping right up to the last minute.

It was wonderful to see you on Christmas Day to play Exodus and have a chance to chat with you. Looking forward to seeing you visit your new games that will be opening in the Spring.
