Escape Room Hints and Tips

We’re looking at how you can get out of the escape rooms successfully and of course within the 60 minutes allowed. It’s not easy and not everyone does it first time, but we’re always happy to welcome people back, we know how popular it is and how much everyone enjoys it. But how can you solve all puzzles and clues and get out in 60 minutes? Well, we hope our hints and tips below help!


Firstly, teamwork is the key and that’s why escape games are so popular with corporate teams. Everyone working together and working as one mind is what gets you out in an hour. You must all find the clues and then work them out, that’s the way you get out and not by bickering, going your own way and ignoring everyone else. 


Find the clues and then place them somewhere you can find them. Then once you have them all together, you can start working them all out, so you get out. Whatever you do, don’t lose them, because every minute count, and if you do misplace one, you may not find it again and that will really put a spanner in the works. 

Don’t let one person dominate proceedings

We’ve already mentioned the importance of teamwork, and this means you can’t allow one person with a dominant personality to rule over everyone else with their ideas and thoughts on how things should be done. This is a game for groups, for teams of people who work together to problem solve, it’s not a golden opportunity for one person to proselytize for an hour and impress everyone with their genius. 

Look Everywhere

Don’t let your imagination hold you back. Think about the theme, think about what’s in the room with you, where could the next clue be? What does it mean? Whatever you, don’t dwell on it too much, if you find that one clue is a little bit too difficult and you’re simply not getting it, and neither are your teammates, then move on to the next one. Time spent dwelling on one stubborn clue could lose you precious minutes that could be utilized elsewhere.
