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  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  Their flower shop was quite enjoyable, and Dana delivered with a lovely performance. Give her a raise 😁I've only done one room, but it was a great time. It was a bit challenging, yet did not feel too difficult for all levels of problem solving.

  • review rating 5  We completed a team event here where we split into teams and competed to finish first. Both rooms had amazing puzzles and it was really fun. I think our company team thoroughly enjoyed both rooms. We completed The Egyptian Tomb and the Casino but one of our members in the casino team can't seem to stop mumbling numbers and math equations.

    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!

  • review rating 5  Had a great work team retreat activity here. Loved the puzzles and escaping the "flower shop" (aka: 1920s speakeasy). I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a team building exercise or just wanting to have fun.

    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  Did the "Beyond the Flower Shop" room with a group of six. The room was well thought out and very enjoyable. Challenging, but perfect for a group of beginners. Alisha working the front desk was amazing at introducing us to the storyline and walking us through how to do the game. She provided help at perfect times and we wouldn't have made it through without her. Will definitely be coming back with my group because of her!
