How to Be Successful in an Escape Room

Today we’re going to be giving you some tips on how to be successful in an escape room. We know our escape rooms are very popular with our customers because they keep coming back, they don’t always get it right first time, but there’s no harm in coming back and we love to see our customers as many times as they want to be here. 

Winning can be so simple if you think, work together as a team and search the area thoroughly

So what can you do to make sure you win the game first time? You may already know through browsing our website that it’s a game where you’re locked in a room with 60 minutes in which to escape. In that time, the room is themed, and you choose the theme you most like the sound of, then once you’re in there you have to find your way out by finding and solving a variety of clues and puzzles. Thing is, how can you do it within the allocated time?

Don’t dominate, let everyone have a chance to speak

To give yourself the best chance of getting out is to make sure you all communicate and listen to each other. If you talk over each person or if one individual is too vocal and dominant and it won’t allow anyone to have their say and that could actually lead to failure. Make sure you all have your say and make sure you all listen to each other. 

Don’t stick with the same puzzle for too long

If you’re finding one particular puzzle difficult don’t dwell on it move on and come back to it later. If you spend too much time on one puzzle, then you’re wasting time that could be spent on other puzzles you can work out quicker. 

Make sure everyone knows when you’ve found a puzzle - and keep it safe

Always make sure you’re vocal when it comes to finding a puzzle. Make sure the whole room knows and whatever you do, don’t put it somewhere you won’t find it later. It’s important you know where it is so you can solve it at later time when you have the puzzles together. 

Search the room thoroughly

Make sure you search the room thoroughly because our puzzles are hidden really well. They could be anywhere, so always look under, up and inbetween. The discovery of those all important cryptic clues and puzzles are what will release you from the room.
