About Us – NW Escape Experience

Who is Behind the Scenes?

ROB & TAMARA BERTRAND

Owners

They have two children, Austin and Hayley who have grown up in the Clark County area their entire lives. Rob has always been in the entertainment industry so owning an escape room was right up his alley. Tamara enjoys running the business side of things and meeting the many people that come to the escape room. As a family, they like to travel and spend time at the coast.

They also have a passion for giving back to their community by making donations to non-profits such as Michelle’s Love, which help single parent’s battling breast cancer pay their bills so they can focus on their health and their children.
