Escape rooms are a fun team building activity you can do with friends, family, and coworkers. The main goal of escape rooms is to challenge yourself and have a great time. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when you’re in an escape room in order to have the best experience possible.
First of all, stay calm. Escape rooms are supposed to be a positive experience for all who participate. The door which you enter the room through will be unlocked the whole time, so you can leave the game if you want. Just take a few deep breathes and have fun!
DON’T Try to Do It Yourself
Relationship-building, teamwork, and communication are important elements of escape rooms. When you try to do everything on your own and don’t share information with your teammates, it can cause frustration among all players. People want to be kept in the loop but are unable to help if they don’t know what’s going on. Focus on communicating with others to make sure everyone is on the same page.
DON’T Force Anything
Though most of the items in the room are interactive, there are some things that will not move, open, or come off the wall. These pieces may be examined but be careful not to break anything.
DON’T Get Mad
These rooms are purposely created difficult clues and puzzles to make it a challenge. Don’t get upset or angry at your teammates if you can’t figure something out. Work together to come up with a solution!
DON’T Take Photos
Each room has been design to offer a thrilling, memorable escape room, and don’t want to ruin the surprise for future players. Participants are not to take any photos or videos during the experience. Most escape rooms are happy to take a photo of your party after the game!
DON’T Bring in Food
Please save your snacks and beverages after the experience. Most escape rooms don’t allow any food or drinks in the escape rooms to avoid damaging their setups.
DON’T Take Anything
Unless specified in the game, do not remove any item from the escape room. The objects in your game are not meant to be souvenirs, and they need to be left in good condition for future participants. If you notice any significant damage to anything in the room, please alert a member of the team.
DON’T Forget the Theme E
Each adventure has its own theme and backstory, so be sure to keep that in mind as you’re going through. Immersing yourself in the scenario can help you solve puzzles and get the most out of your experience.
