Get a Clue with an Escape Room

Get a Clue with an Escape Room

With the popularity escape rooms have gained via social media, it’s hard to avoid hearing about them and eventually try them out. However, there are still a few people out there who haven’t tried their hand at the art of escape, and very often it’s because they don’t know exactly what to expect. If you’re part of this group, it’s time to get a clue about escape rooms, and we’re here to help you fully understand them.

Clue in Your Friends

There’s no limit to who you can bring into an escape room. Every facility has a variety of themed rooms that appeal to all ages and preferences so no one feels uninterested or bored. Whether you have friends or family visiting from out of town or you’re looking for the perfect team bonding activity, an escape room is always a fun and exciting option. Some people even like to be competitive with their escape times, so they draft a “dream team” to bring in with them. For ideas of who’s the best kind of person to enlist on your team, you can read this article and see if you and your friends have what it takes: escapeworksdenver.com/who-to-bring-escape-rooms/.

What to Expect

Escape rooms can be intimidating to those who haven’t tried one before, but once you get past the first-timer nerves it’s easy to get the hang of. This is an activity meant to challenge your critical thinking, teamwork, and communication, and these skills are like muscles that need to be exercised. When you’re in an escape room, you’re operating under the pressure of a clock to move throughout the room and solve the various puzzles thrown your way. Practicing this regularly with a solid group guarantees a victory, and the growth you encounter in the room will be evident in your everyday life as well!

Strategize Your Escape Plan

If you’re the kind of person who wants to set escape-time records, we’ll clue you in on a trade secret: escape rooms take a lot of strategic planning. When you’re able to combine a good team with the skills we previously mentioned, you’ll be unstoppable. But your strategy is very much dependent on your team members and what they’re capable of. Will you divide and conquer, or will you move as one unit throughout the room the whole time? One good way to find what works for your team in an escape room is by, again, practicing. Every team is different, so find how yours functions and use it to your advantage.

One of the reasons people love escape rooms so much is because they’re flexible to the mood and goal of the group inside. Whether you’re competitive or laid back, a first-timer or a veteran, there’s always something new to explore and fun to be had in this activity. If you still want to learn more about the basics or what to expect, or even if you want to get a bit more in depth, you can visit the EscapeWorks Denver website for tips, tricks, and FAQs. Don’t wait any longer to catch the escape bug and visit an escape room!

The Reviews

  • review rating 5  This was our very first Escape room we've ever done and it was the perfect choice. Both our guides were phenomenal! Energetic and you can clearly tell they enjoy what they do. We experienced the Egyptian Tomb and finished with 4:33 left on the clock. Next we did the Beyond the Flower Shop. We barely missed it but we had a blast. Will definitely be back!!!!

    review rating 5  Lana and Sierra were great! We had a couple of people late and they made sure we all still had a great experience. The Egyptian room was great with thoughtful clues and was just the right difficulty for our group!

  • review rating 5  Troy and Tommy Bohan with my son Paul Garcia-Lance and myself had the best of times trying to get out of the Egyptian tomb. We were seconds away but fell short of solving the mystery and we’re buried alive. Thank you so much for an enjoyable evening and a special shout out to Taylor and Sierra who moderated our adventure ! We have to return for our group picture and another great adventure!

  • review rating 5  My fiancee and I were vacationing in Denver and tried out the Egyptian Tomb with another group of 4. We escaped with 5 minutes to spare! Very good room layout and good props. Puzzles were challenging and rewarding once solved. I was not a huge fan of how they did the hints... usually you have 3 hints or whatever and you ask for a hint when you get stuck, instead they give you hints when they think you need it. Otherwise, our game master, Trace, was very helpful and personable. Overall, very satisfied with our experience!

  • review rating 5  Came here for my birthday and it was a blast! Super nice people. We did the Casino Heist and it was definitely challenging but they did give us clues along the way. Can’t wait to go back!

    thumb Samantha Kendrick

    review rating 5  We had so much fun at the Casino Heist room today! Savannah was amazing. The team has created difficult challenges and drop hints that are just enough to move you forward. We can't wait to go back and try another room!

    review rating 5  Emilia was fun, helpful and friendly. My husband and I were joined by a family to attempt an escape out of the Egyptian Tomb and unfortunately failed {if only we had 2 more minutes and we would have escaped!} but had a fun time and would definitely recommend!

  • review rating 5  The staff were very helpful and fun people. We did the beyond the flower shop room theme which was designed well even for our large group of 12 people, but I could see all group sizes enjoying this room. I appreciate the attention to detail to the escape room and the challenges placed throughout. The experience was worth it for our team-bonding event, and I highly recommend this for all types of people. Thanks for all the fun!

    thumb Melissa Rausch

    review rating 5  One clue away from solving it all but still super fun. What a great puzzle and team building opportunity! Huge shout out to Juan- his help, humor, and support at EscapeWorks really made the night great. Thanks so much again!

  • review rating 5  EscapeWorks Denver was an amazing experience! We did a team outing for 2 large groups with our sales team and everyone came out so impressed. I had never done one but many in our group have, they all were at the conclusion that this was the best they have done so far! Great team building experience and very cost effective if on a budget. Savannah was awesome along with the staff that helped with our experience!

    thumb Chip Stahmer

    review rating 5  Went here as a small group recently and had a great time. Instructions from the staff were pretty clear at the beginning and helpful in their instructions in explaining how to try to solve the room. Trace was a great guide for this experience and would happily go again.

  • review rating 5  I rented beyond the flower shop room for my wedding party. We had a blast! The puzzles were challenging but fun. There was plenty of room for everyone to work on different puzzles at the same time. We got out with 2 minutes to spare. Shout out to Trace, he did a great job at only giving us hints when we needed it. I don't like it when they're too generous with the hints, takes the challenge out of the experience. This was my third escape room in Denver and I've used a different company each time. I would definitely come back here to try a different room.

    thumb M Hulsey

    review rating 5  Great escape room. Would highly recommend. Nice workers. Trace did an excellent job. Definitely plan on coming again. 👍
