How To Beat An Escape Room

If you're looking for something new and exciting to do with your friends, consider an escape room. Escape rooms are life-size, interactive puzzles where you and your friends will need to find clues to make your way out of a locked room. You'll be given a time limit, and there is usually a fun story that accompanies the puzzles. Here are some tips to help you win at your first escape room experience:

1. Pay close attention.

Escape rooms are designed to test your perceptiveness and problem-solving abilities. Carefully examine everything in the room so you can find anything that might be a clue. When you do find clues, don't rush your way through them. While time is of the essence, rushing your way through the challenges can cause you to miss key information.

2. Work together as a team.

Escape rooms are complex puzzles, and part of the fun is working through it with your friends. Remember that you and your group are a team. Instead of trying to solve the puzzles yourself, utilize the strengths of everyone in your group. This can be a fun bonding experience, and when you work together, you will probably find the solutions even faster.

3. Designate a team captain.

There may come a time during your escape room experience when your group disagrees about the best course of action. Arguing about the best thing to do can waste valuable time; often it's better to make any decision than to make no decision at all, since wrong choices can be corrected later. In order to resolve all disagreements quickly and effectively, you should designate a team captain before entering the escape room. This person will be responsible for the final say in all decisions, and they can act as a tie-breaker when votes are tied.

4. Remember it's just a game.

Escape rooms bring out the competitive side in a lot of people. When you're racing against the clock, it's easy to get caught up in the drive to win. However, you should keep in mind that it's just a game. Don't let your competitive nature get the better of you. Ultimately, you and your friends are there to have fun, so make sure it stays fun!

These tips will help you beat an escape room and have a lot of fun doing it. If you enjoy your first escape room experience, remember to try others! All escape rooms are different, and each one offers its own story and challenges.
