Posted: Friday, Nov 9 2018

Escape room puzzles require players to find hidden clues and crack secret codes as they make their way through the adventure. A great escape room is an awesome choice for bonding and team building because they’re fun, engaging, and collaborative.

Ever played in an escape room before? If not, we’ve got you covered on everything you need to know before stepping foot into one of our epic escape games! The following are the top ten most commonly asked escape room questions. Find the answers below!


1. Am I Really Locked In The Escape Room?

No! If you need to leave the game at any moment, you are always able to step out. Each escape room has an easily accessible exit that your Game Guide will show you before you begin. There aren’t any secret messages or morse code clues you need to decode before stepping out!


2. Will I Be Playing With Other People?

If your team doesn’t fill the occupancy of the escape room, you may be paired with other players for a shared experience. However, if you would like to guarantee that only your team will be playing, The Escape Game does offer you the ability to book a private experience!


3. Is It Scary?

A common escape room question is if the environment is scary

We make sure that our escape rooms are epic for everyone! Your mission will be centered around a compelling story, filled with thrills and suspense, but nothing will be scary or horror-themed.


4. What’s The Dress Code For Escape Rooms?

There is no strict dress code, but you should dress for comfort and movement. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Don’t wear anything that would prevent you from participating in unique experiences like crawling through an air duct or sliding down a mine shaft. However, most rooms are accessible if you’d prefer not to crawl or shimmy!


5. Which Game Is The Best One?

Each of our escape room games has its own epic mission and provides a unique experience with specialized escape room puzzle ideas.

In The Heist, you are tasked with recovering a stolen painting from the personal office of the museum curator. In Gold Rush, it’s a race against time as you need to find the gold before the mob finds you! Prison Break challenges your team to break out of prison before the warden returns to lock you away forever.

6. Is There More Than One Room In Each Game?

When you begin your game, it may not be immediately apparent that there are additional rooms, but all our games at The Escape Game are multi-room experiences. You never know what book safe or locked door may open!


7. Are Rooms at The Escape Game Claustrophobic?

We have designed our escape rooms to be comfortable experiences for all players. We carefully determine player maximums for each game to make sure that everyone will have plenty of room at each point during the experience. We also provide alternate paths to the more enclosed routes within our games. For example, if a game involves a slide from one room to another, players can also choose to use a door to enter the second room instead.


8. Is It Physically Demanding?

"Are rooms demanding?" is an escape game question

Though you should dress for movement, no special skills or agility are required. Each experience is a game of wits. You’d be better off to warm up your brain with riddles and puzzles than to warm up your body with pushups and a 2-mile jog!


9. Is It Like A Maze?

The Escape Game is not like a maze. In our games, you do have to be able to solve puzzles, decode hidden messages, and overcome challenges. However, the main difference is that The Escape Game is a truly immersive experience. Whether you choose to repair your spaceship and escape Mars or to uncover a secret plot and save the world, you will not be in a maze!

When you are inside our escape rooms searching for clues and cracking puzzles, you will truly feel like you are in another world. Everything you interact with inside these 60-minute adventures has the chance of being the big clue that you need to complete your mission!


10. Am I Sitting In A Room And Just Doing Jigsaw Puzzles?

No! This immersive experience allows you to step into worlds you have only seen on screen. Our games feel more like starring in an action movie than just solving sudoku. Sneak through an art gallery and break into the curator’s office and private vault to recover a stolen painting, or plan your daring escape from prison–you can be the hero of any mission you choose.
