If you're planning on visiting an escape room, here are some strategies to help you escape with time to spare:

Work as a team

Escape rooms are designed to be solved by a group of people, so it's important to communicate and work together. Assign roles to each member of your group, such as a leader, a searcher, and a puzzle solver.

Search thoroughly

Make sure to search every inch of the room for clues and puzzles. Look for hidden compartments, secret drawers, and anything that seems out of place.

Keep track of clues

As you find clues and solve puzzles, make sure to keep track of them. This will help you to see the bigger picture and make connections between different clues.

Think outside the box

Escape rooms are designed to be challenging, so don't be afraid to think creatively and try different approaches. Sometimes, the solution to a puzzle may not be obvious at first glance.

Don't get discouraged

Escape rooms can be difficult, and it's not uncommon to get stuck on a puzzle. If this happens, don't give up. Instead, take a break and come back to it later with a fresh perspective.

Be observant

Keep your eyes open, and take note of anything that could be useful later on like codes, keys, and hidden messages.

Manage your time

Time is of the essence in escape rooms, so make sure to manage your time effectively. Prioritize the puzzles that will unlock other areas of the room, so you can move on to the next set of clues and puzzles.


With these strategies in mind, you'll be well on your way to escaping the room and winning the game. Remember to work together, think creatively, and don't give up.
