How to Prepare for Your Next Escape Room Adventure

The challenges posed by Escape Rooms will always be unique, so you can’t really be ready for them. If you just agreed to that, then you’re setting yourself up for failure. No matter the efforts of escape room creators, they will always end up repeating some elements which, if you’re observant enough, will help you advance to the succeeding step.

Of course, the main technique is to stay as attentive and connected with your team as possible as tension builds up. But besides that, there are pointers you can remember to make sure that your upcoming Escape Room encounters will be easier than ever.

One typical problem is groups obsessing about one small detail and forgetting that they have an entire room to search for more clues. Multitasking is a good solution. Assign some members of your group to linger on an extremely difficult puzzle while others work hunt for more clues. In general, every time you feel you’ve approached a dead end, let it go and give your mind time to relax and regain the clarity it will need to finally discern a solution.

Talk and listen to your group.

Good communication is one of the most important requirements of a successful Escape Room experience. If you find something that looks like a clue, whether you’re sure or not, announce it! If you feel you’ve discovered the solution but need some input, ask your group mates for their thoughts. Otherwise, you will failure upon your group, while engaging with one another can make you all so much smarter than before.

Now keep in mind that you have but a limited stretch of time to solve the puzzle. Just one second wasted on negative thoughts can hurt your chances big time. Fact is, enthusiasm can beat brain power anytime in an Escape Room environment.

Most games are designed without requiring you to learn any type of knowledge beforehand, so your world-class chess skills or degree in Applied Mathematics will only make you overthink the puzzles without getting anywhere. What does correlate positively is a fun and enthusiastic mindset. So enjoy every second of the mystery, make the most of the clues you’ve deciphered, and be supportive to team members who may be on a roll. These are some of the most crucial methods of getting the victory you want.

Don’t shy away from asking for hints.

For some people, this request for help is synonymous with defeat. But defeat is only when time has actually run out. So, throw that your pride away and ask for that hint if it will help you reach the goal.
