Escape Room Tips and Strategy

While fun, escape rooms are designed to be pretty tricky too. This doesn’t mean it’s exceptionally hard or impossible, but having a couple tips at hand will greatly improve your odds of escape, so take heed! First off, come in with a winning attitude and a good group. Escape rooms are all about teamwork, and you want a group that works well with each other and are supportive as you plod through the clues. When it comes to solving puzzles, focus on trying to find obvious answers and solutions. The puzzles aren’t really hard, in that they don’t require any advanced skills to solve, but they’re hard to spot. You need to notice some key detail that will make the answer obvious to you. Puzzles really should be solved in just a couple minutes, so if you don’t see the solution, try passing the clue off to another group member or rethink your approach to it. Also, if you’re stuck for about 5-10 minutes, consider asking your game master for help. We provide clues, but if you don’t ask promptly when you know you’re stuck, you’ll be wasting precious minutes. Asking for clues when you know you need them will greatly aid your chances of making it out in time!

Restaurants and Recommendations for an Escape Room Night

Working on all these puzzles can leave you hungry! We recommend enjoying your group’s company at a fun restaurant after your visit to Breakout Games -Rochester. This way you can recap the room and socialize without the pressure of solving the clues.
