What are Escape Rooms?

As you may know our Escape Room Games are extremely popular – they bring people back time and again because they’re so much fun. Our Escape Rooms in particular are extremely popular. This is because we’ve worked hard to capture the imagination of our most famous and most well-known themes from mainstream culture and populated our rooms with them. They help to make the room not only more immersive but huge fun for the players.

Well Known Themes

As we’ve already mentioned our themes are based on ideas taken from popular culture, it could be a board game, a book, a film or a TV series. We furnish the rooms with furniture and accessories from the chosen theme, creating a believable room that captures the imagination, and we guarantee it will take you away to a whole different world. Cities all over the UK come up with their own individual Escape Rooms but there is some crossover, and some of them are identical. Each set of Escape Rooms in each town or city will have individual themes but some are so popular they’re replicated in a couple of places. We love to surprise people though, so when you come to us, we will have different rooms from another town or city where they also have Escape Room Games.

We believe we’ve created a truly unique and original game, and the Escape Rooms form a great part of why it works, it’s not just the idea or the game itself. We’re all about creating an immersive, escape-from-reality game that you can truly get stuck into and forget your troubles for a short time.

If that’s the case, then by coming down to Escape you’ll have the perfect opportunity to get to know those who you’ve not had an opportunity to talk to yet, and also introduce like-minded individuals who are feeling a little left out.

What happens is this – you’re locked in a room for 60 minutes, and in that time, you have to find several clues and puzzles and solve them.

You’ll need to be able to speak to each other and communicate with each other, because if you don’t you considerably lessen your chance of winning.

So then, if you all work together, you’ll have a better chance of escaping.

You’ll need to look everywhere to find the clues and then find a place to store them while you search for the rest.

How to Be Successful in an Escape Room

If you’re coming to see us soon here in Hull, and you have your escape room already booked, you’ll be wanting to know how to get out successfully. We’re all for helping our customers, so in this post we’re going to be talking about how you can be successful in an Escape Room and we’ve got all the tips. So, read on and find out how you can be successful and get out of that room by the time the clock strikes on the hour. 

There’s nothing so important as a strong team

A good team with a mix of different useful skills will be a requirement. Perhaps one or two with good analytical, problem-solving skills, another who’s higher on communication skills. You’ll be needing excellent logical thinking, and of course everyone you pick will need to be good at working as part of a team. 

You’ll need to be willing to search every corner

Search high and low as the clues could be hiding just about anywhere. Once you’ve found them all, be sure to collect all of them and keep them in one central place. Don’t discard them and throw them carelessly to one side and move on to find the next clue. It’s likely you’ll forget where you put it and once it’s lost you may well lose the entire game. Keep them once you found them in one place and you can come back to work on them at the end. 

Don’t bring domineering people along

Those that enjoy taking over and telling everyone else what to do is one sure way of losing the game, and increases the potential for arguments. This is a team game, and everyone should be allowed their say. Bring a whole group of people with different personalities and different skills who each have something unique to bring to the table.

Our escape games aren’t there just for fun, they’re also for your benefit because as well as keeping you occupied for an hour, they’re also incredibly helpful at keeping your brain active.

Of course, exercise and a healthy diet all play their part, but it’s also important to keep your brain active, so rather then spending your spare time in front of the TV why don’t you try a brain activity game?

Any brain games, Sudoku, lateral thinking games, maths, general knowledge quizzes. 

It doesn’t have to be our escape games, although they’re obviously designed to get your brain working on our clues and puzzles, but it could be anything where you have to unravel, think carefully and work out certain problems. These problems could be solved in a number of different ways, it could be numerically, via language or problem-solving.

What brain teasers have been known for is keeping dementia and senility away for longer. It doesn’t offer a cure, but by keeping your brain active, you’re keeping your mind sharp.

Escape Room Hints & Tips

We know that our escape games can be hard to crack, after all they’re not meant to be too easy, or otherwise there’d be no enjoyment. However, we know that at the same time you want at least a fighting chance of escaping, and with this in mind, we’ve decided to give you some hints and tips, so you have a few tricks up your sleeve so you can escape within the hour. 

Team work

One of the most important gambits to have is team work, without it will mean an even harder journey ahead. If everyone works together and as one, then you’ll have a far better chance of getting out in time. Don’t let one person dominate, everyone must have an opportunity to speak. Don’t bicker over clues, and if you struggle with one, move on to the next and see if you can crack the next one. If you stick with that one stubborn clue you’re stuck with you could well run out of time, and that is one thing you don’t have on your side. 

Clues

There are clues everywhere but not where you can see them. They’re all well-hidden. If you work as a team, and that’s something we’ve already gone over above, then once you find them you can pool them together and work out what they all mean. Once you’ve found them, place them in one central area, whatever you do, don’t allow someone to flick them somewhere in a corner where it’s more than likely they’ll forget where they put them. Misplaced clues will cost you precious time. 

Don’t let someone dominate

We’ve already mentioned teamwork and how important it to not let one person dominate. This can easily happen, especially if you’ve got one strong minded person who’s chosen all the members for their ability to remain quiet. This is a game for groups of individuals all working together as a team, so allowing one person to dominate it will not only give you a slim chance of winning, it will also ruin it for everyone else. If everyone is allowed their say, then there’s more chance of you finding the clues quicker and thus being able to solve the entire game quicker. 

Keep your eyes peeled

Remember to look absolutely everywhere, don’t leave any corner unturned. Make sure that each member of your team is in every corner too, lifting cushions, books and tables in a bid to find that elusive clue. Sooner you find them the sooner you leave.
