ESCAPE ROOM

BEGINNERS GUIDE

If you are an escape room first timer then have a quick read through this beginner’s guide of what to expect during one of our escape games!

Every team that enters their chosen escape room has one mission in common: Escape in less than 60 minutes.

  • STEP 1: ASSEMBLE YOUR TEAM

    Choose wisely. Escape room games work best for teams of between 2-6 people, so make sure you and your band of fellow escapees get on well together.Good communication is key, as is the ability to cooperate and think on the same wavelength, but a mix of skills and perspectives can also be useful. Who knows - Jo’s maths knowledge might be more useful than Jon’s murder-mystery addiction!

  • STEP 2: CHOOSE YOUR FIRST ESCAPE ROOM

    Escape room game locations will have a selection for you to pick from, from all-out horror scenarios to fantasy and adventure escape room themes.Do you like the chill that runs down your spine at the scene of an unspeakable event, or in the presence of the supernatural? The desperation at being held hostage by a psychopath? The excitement of searching for pirate treasure or escaping from prison? Or getting away with the biggest robbery of your life?

  • STEP 3: GET THE BRIEFING AND BACK-STORY

    Before you enter the escape room, you’ll get a team briefing about the ins and outs of participating in the game, and maybe a few helpful tips - it’s worth paying attention! Then, as you wait to go in, your host will reveal the back-story behind the scenario you’re about to encounter. Again, listen to the Gamesmaster - they may be giving you clues, or an idea of what to look for!

  • STEP 4: ENJOY THE GAME!

    Once you’re inside, you have no option but to become immersed in the world of the room for the next 60 minutes. Go for it! There is a lot to explore – make sure you go around the room thoroughly, discover all the clues and wrap your brain around the puzzles. But all the while, never lose sight of your objective. Everything you are doing is working towards one end: to complete your room’s unique challenge and escape!

OUR TOP TIPS FOR FIRST TIMERS

The best tips we can give for a first timer of escape games are:

SEARCH EVERYWHERE

WORK TOGETHER

POSITIVE ATTITUDES

ASK FOR A HINT

Use the best problem solving tactics to decipher visual puzzles, discover missing elements to puzzles, complete sequence challenges along with many more strategies designed to make an escape game challenging.

Split up, find things and tell everyone in the group what has been discovered. Another member of the team could hold another clue, when once put together, helps with the answer. Sometimes the answer will be right in front of the team, so be careful not to overcomplicate certain puzzles!

A GREAT ACTIVITY FOR ALL

Escape Reality is a perfect activity for friends, family, events such as birthdays or stag and hen dos, even corporate team building activities!
