Escape Room Tips and Strategy

Escape rooms are tricky, and while that makes it all the more satisfying should you break out in time, it can also be quite frustrating when you’re struggling in a room as the clock ticks down. Here are some helpful tips: First off, come in comfortable and with a positive attitude. You’ll want to be well fed and energized for your room, as your minds will be put to the test. Also, consider the group you’re with. You want others who are supportive and communicate well. It’s a team game and you’ll be feeding off one another as you navigate the clues. This is no place for Debbie Downers! When you’re working on the clues themselves, try and see if you can notice a key detail that provides an answer. Usually clues have obvious answers, but in the confusion of the room players often don’t know where to look. Clues are usually placed in a way to be noticed, or seem to have something about them you need to solve. Also, seek out answers in the form of 4-digit number combinations, as many rooms use locks requiring such inputs. Lastly, if it feels like your group has become stuck, and there’s been no progression for roughly 5-10 minutes, consider asking for a clue. We provide help as needed, and the groups that recognize when they’re stuck and ask for help are usually the same ones who escape in time.

Restaurants and Recommendations for an Escape Room Night

Solving all those clues can leave you hungry, and that’s why I recommend eating out after your escape room at Breakout Games - Minneapolis. Additionally, this space will provide ample time for you to discuss the finer points of the room or any clues you may have missed, and for general socializing, since you’ll all be focused on the clues while inside the escape room. At Ridgedale Center there are several sit-down options, including Big Bowl Ridgedale, Redstone American Grill, Ruscello, Lakeshore Grill, The Cheesecake Factory, and Kona Grill, amongst several other quick eateries. Just outside the mall, you’ll find Bacio, Tucci Italian, BLVD Kitchen & Bar, Leeann Chin, Panera Bread Company, Breadsmith, Noodles and Company, Kip’s Irish Pub & Restaurant, Bukhara Indian Bistro, and Champps. As you can see, options abound!
