Escape Room Tips and Strategy

Escape rooms wouldn’t be much fun if they were too easy, so we decided to make them pretty tough. While this can be challenging for first timers, it’s also far more rewarding if you do manage to break out. Therefore, getting some tips ahead of time will greatly aid your chances of escaping. Here are some tips: No matter how stumped you get, approach every clue with an upbeat, positive attitude. Most of the solutions are pretty easy (once you see them!), so don’t feel hopeless when you’re in the room and feeling stuck. Being in a good, happy frame of mind will help you be more creative and ingenious as you work to solve things, and so you’ll probably work things out quicker this way. Also, talk to your teammates! Escape rooms are all about working together and collaborating. Many puzzles will require multiple peoples’ input, and so the more you’re all talking with each other, the faster you’ll solve things. Lastly, when you get stuck and everyone’s run out of ideas, swallow that pride and ask for a clue. Our gamemasters will gladly point you in the right direction and get you moving again. This is absolutely imperative in any escape room, as time passes mighty quick. If you waste 15-20 minutes on one particular step, you’re probably too far behind to escape in under an hour, so we recommend asking for a clues if you’ve been stuck for 5-10 minutes.
