Arvada, CO: Conundrum Escape – Experiment C73

June 13, 2020 – After a VERY brief adventure at the top of Pike’s Peak, Christina and I weren’t ready to call it a night. Our first thought was to search for an escape room near Colorado Springs, but after striking out on available slots / locations, we scanned the Denver area again. Miraculously, Conundrum had one slot available for Experiment C73, and we had just enough time to get up to Arvada before the slot.

June 12, 2020 – Every time I visit Rabbit Hole Recreation Services I get a little bolder in proclaiming how special they are.  One world-class room is a data point, two is a trend, and three is an identity.  Frost Base Z cements Rabbit Hole as a place every escape room enthusiast needs to add to his or her bucket list.

Denver holds a special place in our hearts.  It was the first leg of our final segment of the 50 state challenge in 2018 (Colorado->Wyoming->Montana->Idaho), and we immediately fell in love with the area.  Open roads with high speed limits, great scenery, and fantastic escape rooms.

May 11, 2019 – When it comes to escape rooms, I really dislike using the words “favorite” and “best.”  Trying to rate rooms against each other is harder than comparing apples and oranges (apples are objectively better, by the way).  But actions sometimes speak louder than words, and I will say this- Christina and I planned our trip to Denver around Rabbit Hole Recreation Services’ room #2, with literally nothing else planned on our trip.  That should say something about what we thought of the first room, Ruins of the Mystic Temple.

November 2, 2018- I get asked a lot what escape rooms I’ve done have been my best or my favorite, and I’ve always deflected those questions.  One of the reasons I can still enjoy escape rooms after solving 300+ is that each room is so different, and most aren’t even trying to do the same thing.  Sometimes it’s a cinematic experience meant for a small group.  Sometimes it’s a communications exercise for a large group.  It can be a linear brainteaser or a tangle of parallel tracks.  Different people will like different styles of rooms more than others, and unless I know […]
