What NOT to Do in an Escape Room

We’re going to be looking at what you mustn’t do in an Escape Room today, so you can enjoy the game, fully engage and have a great time. We love giving our customers the opportunity to win the game, but sometimes they get too preoccupied by things they shouldn’t be getting caught up in. So by setting out the do’s and don’t’s pretty early on, we know you’ll have a great time when you visit us at Escape Ipswich.

Don’t touch anything that comes with a don’t touch sign

If you see signs which say don’t touch, then it means don’t touch. We design our rooms and set everything up in a particular way, and we do this, so you’ll get the most out of the game. There’ll be props in the room that have stickers on them and they’ll ask you not to touch them. Therefore, it’s probably wise to do as the sign says, because if you touch and play around with something, you’re not supposed to you and cause some damage, unfortunately, we’ll have to ask you to pay for it. Therefore, heed the signs and enjoy your time simply playing the game.

Please don’t break things

Please be careful with the stuff you find in the room while you’re playing the game. If you break something, we will have to ask you to pay for it. Stay calm and take your time, you’ll enjoy the game far more. And you don’t want to be left with a bill to pay - let’s leave that there for a moment.

Don’t be tempted to run off with a great souvenir

Yes, we can replace stuff, but these replacements run out eventually, and it adds to our costs to keep replacing them. No matter how tempting it might seem, don’t do it, just look at them – but no slipping them into your back pocket.

Don’t turn into a climber while you’re in the Escape Room

What we mean by that is – don’t climb all over the furniture like you’re on a climbing frame because you’re up against the clock. You could cause some permanent damage and we’d have to replace whatever it is you’ve broken. And whatever you do, don’t turn up drunk please, because we’ll have to ask you to leave.

We make rules because they’re there to keep you safe. It also stops us from having to interrupt you and stop the clock – when you could be having a great time without the interruption.

Escape Ipswich – for the best hour of your day

We’ve told you what you shouldn’t do, and you’re now left with what you can. We’d love to see you here so you can forget the outside world as long as you obey the rules no climbing, touching or drunkenness, you can do that later to your heart’s content – stick to the rules and you’ll have a fabulous time here.

So why not contact us and book your game today.


What Type of Event is an Escape Room Good For?

If you’re interested in a unique game where a group of you are locked in a room with only an hour to escape, then Escape Ipswich is for you. It’s definitely one of our favourite games and we see so many different types of people come here and enjoy the experience. Question is what type of event is an escape room good for?

Corporate teams

We see a lot of corporate teams come here to play the Escape Room Game. The reason for this is that there are so many skills that can be utilised from and so much learnt from it. Not only is it a great excuse to leave the office, it’s also a great way to identify any weaknesses and strengths. If you have a new project coming up, you might do well to bring your potential candidates here to try them out. The kind of skills we’re talking about are communication, problem-solving, analytical and logical skills and of course it’s great for team building.

Celebrate your milestone event

If you have a birthday coming up or possibly a hen or stag do, then our Escape Rooms are a perfect way of celebrating. You could be celebrating something else like an anniversary or for successfully passing a driving test. Why not celebrate your special moment with us here at Escape London and make it the kind of memorable event you’ll never forget?

A welcome break from studying

Students often come here too, because what better way is there to get away from your studies and relax? You can bond with new friends, catch up with old ones and just forget about the deadlines and stress. You can play to win and then discuss your tactics over a pint later.

You could use our Escape Rooms for a date night

This may seem odd, but we’ve seen it work. Rather than sit awkwardly over a dinner date or make feeble attempts at conversation, a date night at an Escape Room can be the most unique way possible to break the ice and enjoy the company of a potential new boy/girlfriend. So why not book online or over the phone, today?


Escape Ipswich - The Benefits of Brain Teasers & Puzzles

We’re looking at the benefits of doing puzzles and brain teasers with special attention on our Escape Games at Ipswich. We hold the fort here for one of the most exciting games spreading throughout the country, and we know that as well as being a fun way of spending time with friends, it also gets your brain working.

Now we know that you grow new brain cells all the time, and you don’t just get your lifetime supply of those precious little things at birth, it’s important to take care of them. No matter that they replenish themselves all the time, we need to take care of them all the way through to their demise and replacement. We have some great ideas on how to do that. Yes, you can play some games on your phone, tablet or game console, but there’s nothing to beat doing them in real life. 

Yes, it brings people together, and if you haven’t been spending too much time with friends of late, then this is a great way to bring all of you into the same space. Sometimes we get so caught up with work and family commitments that we don’t spend enough with friends, and then wind up spending too much time by ourselves. It feels easier to simply switch the TV on or stare at our tablets or phones, our brains become stale and we can often feel like we’re losing it. That sharpness and keenness of thought that we think only belongs in our past when we were kids, should be used continually.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Keep your mind active, keep the adrenaline going and endorphins on high alert so you get that feel good factor sooner than you think. Yes, you can get that through exercise, but it also works for mental activity too. Using your analytical skills, logical thinking and problem-solving skills and you’ll find that you start to feel perkier, fresher and oh so much better than you did before. Brain teasers and puzzles can do so much for cognitive function keeping you mentally alert. 

If you’re currently looking for work, perhaps you’ve been out of the loop for a while, then getting out and about taking part in games like this will not only keep you mentally alert, and we know corporate teams use Escape to help identify key skills, it’ll also help build your confidence around people again.

It can be daunting, especially if you haven’t been out for a while, but rather than doing a jigsaw on your coffee table – getting out and mixing with people will do so much more for your social life as well as your confidence. It’s one hour out of your life so it’s not a major commitment, with the cost of the room spread between a group of you if you’re on a tight budget. 

Escape Ipswich – for the confident, the shy, the gamers and the curious.

This is a game of one whole, one hour and the perfect brain teaser puzzle to get you working your brain, giving your cells the kind of workout they deserve. We’re here to help should you have any questions, just give us a call, you can book your room over the phone at the same time, or you may prefer doing it online once you’ve had a good look at our themes. We’ll see you here.
