Escape rooms are a fun and exciting way to challenge yourself and test your problem-solving skills with friends or family. However, in order to ensure that everyone has a fun and fair experience, it's important to understand and follow some basic etiquette guidelines.

Respect the puzzles

Escape rooms often require players to solve a variety of puzzles, riddles, and clues in order to progress. It's important to approach these challenges with respect and to not intentionally damage or destroy any props or materials. Damaging props is not only disruptive to your game experience, but it can impact the experience of future players.

Work together

Escape rooms are designed to be a team-building exercise, so it's important to work together with your fellow players. This means sharing ideas, communicating effectively, and being willing to help one another when needed.

Listen to the game host

The game host is there to provide hints and guidance when needed, and it's important to listen to their instructions and follow their rules. The game hosts want you to have a fun and safe experience. Learn more about everything a game host does to keep to games running smoothly.

Don't be a clock-watcher

Escape rooms are timed events, but it's not productive or helpful to other players if one person is constantly checking the clock. Instead, be mindful of the time, but work together as a team and try to complete the challenge within the time frame.

Leave your belongings behind

Many escape rooms have limited space, and it can be disruptive to have personal items taking up valuable room. It's best to leave your personal belongings behind or in a secure location. At Unity Escape Rooms, we offer lockers for all guests to securely store their belongings before entering the room.

Be respectful of other players

Everyone has different skills and abilities, and it's important to be respectful and understanding of your teammates. Be patient and help others when needed. Remember, you're all in this together. Learn about the different types of personalities in an escape game to better understand your and your teammates skills and weaknesses.

By following these basic etiquette guidelines, you can help ensure that everyone has a fun and fair experience in an escape room. Remember to work together, listen to the game host, and respect the puzzles and other players.

Happy escaping!
