Phoenix Escape Room Re-Opening: The Puzzle Effect
We’re changing our name. Phoenix Escape Room is now The Puzzle Effect.
The escape room is a part of BCR Developments, LLC, a company with seven different escape rooms across the Western US.
The company-wide brand change is an exciting new development for the company. “The new name better represents who we are and what we do,” said Marketing Manager Melissa Hirsch. “We hear people say all the time that escape rooms get addictive – And that’s because of what we’ve coined as ‘The Puzzle Effect.’”
The Puzzle Effect (n.) The bewilderment and resulting euphoria triggered by escape room puzzle-solving.
Escape rooms have exploded in popularity over the past four years, in part because they provide phone-free entertainment. We’ve heard so often that people like the idea of fun as a group without a phone
An escape room is basically a real-life board game with puzzles that lead you to an objective. Players are brought into an immersive room with one hour on the clock. They win by solving all the puzzles within the allotted time!
The Puzzle Effect has four games:
Curse on the Emerald Seas:
“BREAK THE CURSE OR GO DOWN WITH THE SHIP”
Upon escaping the Crimson Storm, you and your crew have found yourselves adrift and come across the mysterious ship known as The Emerald Seas. Legends tell that this ship was cursed when its crew mutinied and traded their captain’s heart for unknown treasures. Witnesses say the ship only appears for an hour before sinking below the water. You and your crew board the ship in hopes of dispelling the curse and claim the ship as your own before it returns to the watery depths.
