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. 


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.
