Want some proven tips for how to beat even the toughest escape rooms? We’ve got you covered. Here are 5 game master-approved tips to help you escape every time you play:

Don’t panic if it’s difficult to get started.
Many people assume that the first parts of the room should be the easiest, but that’s not usually true! Sometimes getting started is actually one of the hardest parts of the room. Instead of panicking, look for things that look out of place.

Think outside the box.
We know this is a cliche, but it’s true! Oftentimes when we get stuck in escape rooms, it’s because we’re assuming there’s a specific path to a solution. Try to keep an open mind and think creatively. 

Keep track of your clues.
Lots of time can get wasted in escape rooms wondering where you put a clue. It’s a good idea to designate one area of the room for clues and to separate them into ones you’ve used, and ones you haven’t used.

Watch the clock.
An hour goes by FAST in an escape room. And sometimes if you get really absorbed in a puzzle, you might not realize how much time is going by. So we recommend checking the clock frequently so you can pace yourselves.

Practice makes perfect.
The more escape rooms you play, the better you get at them. But it’s also a good idea to do other puzzles and riddles to keep your brain sharp! We post brain games frequently on our Instagram. Give us a follow if you’re up for a challenge!
