How to Be Successful in an Escape Room

Today we’re talking about how you can be successful in an Escape Room. If you feel intimidated by the game and you’re not sure whether or not you have what it takes, let us reassure you that you do. All we can do is give you some hints and tips so it can build your confidence and help you to believe that you really can do it. And if you can’t? Failure isn’t the end of the world, and we love to see our customers come back again and again, either because they want another bite of the cherry, or simply because they love it so much. 

A mixed bag of skills.

Make sure you bring a team along that have lots of different skills. We’re talking communication, delegation, problem-solving, analytical and logical skills. It’s especially important that communication is highlighted, because without that you’ll never be able to work together and find those all-important clues, because they are really well hidden.

Searching, talking and not losing your clues.

So, you’ll be needing some seriously good search skills – because as we’ve already mentioned the clues are everywhere, under and over things. High up and down below, you’ll need to lift, reach, uncover and move stuff around so you’ve covered every corner of the room. As you find the clues, place them in one central area where they can all be kept until you’ve got them all. You can then start working out what they mean. If you leave them randomly anywhere along the way, as you find them, then you might find it’s easier to lose them. Once they’re gone, you won’t be able to solve the other clues as well, and that could cost you the game. 

No bossiness - don’t let anyone person take over.

You don’t want to bring the shouty one. You want a group of people that work together as a team and never try to dominate each other. Communication is key as we’ve already seen so that’s what we’re aiming for, people communicating with each other and helping each other out – not one person shouting orders from a central point and ordering people around.
