You and a group of friends have 60 minutes to “break out” of the room. In order to do so, your team must work together to uncover the mystery of the room. If this sounds difficult, don’t worry. We’ve outlined a few tips and tricks to keep in mind so your first experience can be as engaging and exciting as possible.

#1) Get Immersed!

First and foremost, it’s important to be aware that escape rooms are tough. Unlike going to watch a movie or to play mini golf, the escape room requires participants to work together as the clock ticks down from 60 minutes to zero. The overall goal is for teams to uncover the mystery and escape the room before time runs out. As this is your first time partaking in an escape game, understand that you and your team need to be completely devoted to the tasks at hand. If something seems too difficult, let your team members know so you can all work together to achieve success.

#2) Avoid Spoilers

Escape games rely on the mystery and the journey of uncovering details within the room. For this reason, repeat play may not yield the same degree of enjoyment and satisfaction. It’s best to go into your escape game without any in-depth knowledge of what to expect from the escape room your group chooses. If a friend of yours has already participated in the escape room, steer clear of any spoilers! Not only will this ruin your immersion in the game, but it could also make it more difficult for your teammates to have as much fun as possible.

#3) Prepare Accordingly

Escape games are immersive by their very nature. Unlike other types of entertainment, escape rooms may require you to get as involved as possible. You might have to look for clues on the floor, for example. Make sure you and your team dress accordingly. Clothing you feel comfortable in is a must. These games rely on teamwork and problem-solving. Children under the age of 14 may not enjoy the game or get as invested as they should. For this reason, participants must be over the age of 14. This is for the best, as the game focuses on working together to achieve a joint goal. Escape games are a great choice for team-building so gather your coworkers and visit Operation Outbreak to foster a stronger connection within your company.
