Inferno Escape Room opens with first-of-its-kind free game

Tempe escape room grand opening event to offer free 15-minute escape room!

To celebrate it’s grand opening on October 26, Inferno Escape Room in Tempe is offering a free 15-minute escape room game. This is the first free escape game in Arizona, and the grand opening event will run now through November 11. The game, called “The Waiting Room” can be booked by phone; full-length escape room games can be booked online.

While the goal of traditional escape rooms is to escape from a locked room, at Inferno, the goal is to accomplish an objective. For example, in the party-themed room “Lit”, players must break into a hotel room and piece together what happened the night before. In the other game, “Inventor’s Secret,” players must find and detonate the secret invention before it goes haywire.

Inferno has strong ties to the local community. The name “Inferno” is a nod to the Arizona State University student section of the football stadium, as owner Jackie Moats and GM Kris Guiang are both ASU alumni. Student discounts are seasonally offered to current ASU students.

Inferno has already built up somewhat of a cult following from avid escape room players. The escape room blog Team Bluefish named the “Lit” game in their “Best of Phoenix” list in the category of “Best Puzzles.” One visitor who reports her team has played over 100 rooms collectively said, “These guys are the real deal! […] We all walked away from Lit saying, ‘That was one of the best rooms we’ve ever done.’” New players also give Inferno high praise. Another visitor commented, “I have found a new addiction thanks to Inferno Escape Room. I’ve never been to one before, but Inferno blew my expectations out of the water.”

Inferno Escape Room is located in Tempe, AZ and provides a unique entertainment experience for groups of families, friends, and co-workers. It currently offers two 60-minute escape rooms, Lit and Inventor’s Secret, which are suitable for up to 8 players. Bookings may be made online, or by calling 480-567-0190.
