Best Escape Rooms in Scottsdale: Updated January 2020

Updated: Jan 10

With so many choices, it can be hard to compare the escape room choices available in Scottsdale, AZ! We've played them all, and have compiled this list to help you compare escape room prices, booking types, and locations. Play on!


Side note: In case you don't know, escape rooms have two booking types, private and public. Public means that unless you buy all the tickets for your escape game, other people may be playing the game with you. Private booking means that you have the room to yourself and you will not be playing with strangers.





North Scottsdale

There's only one escape room currently in north Scottsdale, and its called Escape Room 101 (it's located just off the 101 freeway... get it?! :)) Our favorite room is Cowboy Mobster, where you're in a cowboy saloon to steal your rival's wealth! Make it out before they get back!

  • Location: Just off Scottsdale Road and the 101

  • Price: $28.94 per player (+3% booking fee and tax)

  • Booking type: Public (you may be placed with strangers)


South Scottsdale Area

There are several escape rooms in the south Scottsdale area, so here's the inside scoop:


Inferno Escape Room: Hi! It's us! Ok, so not technically *in* Scottsdale, but we're just minutes from Old Town Scottsdale. "Scottsdale lite," if you will. Game themes include LIT (Hangover escape room where you have to break into your hotel room and figure out what happened last night), Inventor's Secret (investigate the nutty inventor's apartment), and Burned Out (80s style office where you get revenge on the boss).


  • Location: University Drive, just west of McClintock

  • Price: $27.75 per player (+tax, no booking fee)

  • Booking type: Private (you will not be placed with strangers)





Escape the Room Scottsdale: Escape the Room is a national chain with locations both in Scottsdale and Chandler, AZ. We like their Western Bank Heist room!


  • Location: Old Town Scottsdale

  • Price: $30 (+$2 per player booking fee +tax)

  • Booking type: Public (you may be placed with strangers)


Riddle Escape Rooms: Unfortunately, Riddle Escape Room in South Scottsdale is now CLOSED. Our friends at Time Bandit Escape are working on something new coming soon! We will update this post with their info when they are up and running! We hear they're going to have a RAGE room, too! We can't wait!


If you're looking for a different part of the valley, we've also got favorites in Phoenix, East Valley, and our favorite escape games in AZ.
