There is such a wide variety of escape rooms out there. Some are difficult to escape from even with the maximum number of players, while others you can breeze through with 23 minutes left on the clock. So, which Puzzle Effect escape room for two players do we recommend? 🤷
We’ll go through our entire game catalog highlight our favorites. Please check out our Games page to see which of these are available in this location!
PRO TIP! Make sure you research pricing and the company’s policy on private rooms for an escape room for two players before you book. Many escape rooms charge a premium for a private room/and or they charge more per player when you have a small group. At Puzzle Effect, every room is private no matter how many players you bring with no extra charges. 🙌
Escape Room for Two at Puzzle Effect
Crimson Storm ☠️
Crimson Storm is a classic pirate game beloved by many of our escapers for many years. One reason? It’s a great room for beginners that really shows you the escape room ropes. It’s also a great game for smaller teams, including teams of two.

Scenario: Thieves of the high seas, you and your pirate crew have been captured and taken prisoner aboard the infamous Crimson Storm, a ship known for possessing the power to call down the winds and waves to crush their enemies. The source of this power, an ancient artifact known as the Crimson Heart is kept deep in the hull of the ship. Can you help your crew escape the clutches of the Storm and find the Crimson Heart before it is too late?
Grim Stacks 🔮
Grim Stacks is another fan favorite, and we totally get why! This magical bookstore room is a little more challenging than Crimson Storm, but it’s the perfect theme for a date night.
