Escape Room Tips and Strategy

Few things can adequately prepare someone for the intensity and excitement of an escape room, but here are a few quick pointers: Work together as a team. There’s no need to showboat or make conflict with teammates. You’re all striving for the common goal of escaping in time. Also, keep an eye on the clock, as time passes very quickly. Lastly, take advantage of your clues. We try to offer assistance when needed, and inevitably, most groups get stuck on something or another. So instead of digging deep into your advanced Calculus knowledge, when you get stumped for 5-10 minutes on a single step, just ask for help. Chances are the solution was something pretty simple that you guys just happened to miss. Trust me, you’ll feel a lot better having broken out after using 2 clues than fretting over what went wrong when you refused to ask for help.

Restaurants and Recommendations for an Escape Room Night

A visit to Breakout Games - Newport News will likely be a thrilling one, but why cut the evening short after that? We often suggest heading out to eat or grabbing a drink following your game so your group can discuss the finer points of the room and socialize without the pressure of solving puzzles.

Here are some nearby restaurants we recommend: Dino’s Pizza Shop, La Pena Horeb Spanish, Mr. Gyros & Burgers, Royal Garden Korean Restaurant, Caribbean Gourmet Delights, Inc., Kyung Sung Restaurant, Viking Burger, or Tacos Mexican Restaurante y Taqueria. And if you want another fun activity following your escape room, check out nearby Speed Club Center for go-karts.
