But luckily for you, you don't have to go to those extremes. If you want to belong to the percentage of people who do manage to get out of an escape room in less than 60 minutes, just follow these 5 secret escape tips:


Follow our ultimate Escape Room tips to ensure your success:

1- Search and collect

At the beginning of an Escape Game, every player wants to touch and open everything first. Then, when you find items that might be helpful down the line, it's best to organise them so that everyone on your team has access to them. Find items that go together and put aside those that you have already used to solve puzzles.

2- Communicate with your team

Escape games are completed or not depending on how quickly the players who have found items can match them. These include, for example, a key and a lock, a code and a key, or a pattern that appears in different places. And remember, teamwork is one of the most important aspects of an escape room.

3- Pay attention to the details

Be extremely thorough when examining and touching everything as if you were scanning the room. Sometimes key objects are in the most unimaginable places, sometimes right under your nose.

Unfortunately, multitasking often doesn't work in the Escape Room. If you have a puzzle in front of you that requires your full concentration, then give it the attention it deserves.

4- Don't be afraid of failure

Escape games work best when you try everything. If your teammate has a plausible but crazy idea, listen to him and just try it out together! The world is often turned upside down here, so it may possibly bring you closer to the solution. Don't be afraid to make a fool of yourself, anything is possible! In any case, it will be fun!

5- Don't waste time

Every Live Escape Room is a race against time: 60 minutes in the room seems like a lot of time, but it can be deceiving. Don't waste time on objects that don't make significant sense in the game. Follow the clues and hints and try to find a direct path to the solution to escape as quickly as possible!
