A room full of captivating clues, the pressures of a ticking clock, and an hour of fun with friends by your side: what’s not to love about an escape room? As this growing trend moves into cities around the country, more and more adventure-seekers are trying their hand at solving a mystery in 60 minutes or less. For newcomers to the escape room scene, however, there’s one key question we hear over and over again: what happens if I run out of time?
The Ins and Outs of Escape Rooms
Whether you operate best under pressure or simply want to show off your mental prowess to friends and strangers alike, an escape room is the latest, greatest trend in group entertainment. Perfect for everything from birthday and bachelor parties to corporate team building events, this creative game puts your problem-solving savvy to the test as you and your teammates attempt to reason your way out of a locked room before your time is up. As soon as the door closes, the race is on to press ahead and be one of the bold, brave souls to make it out alive.
But what if the clock runs out? Are you trapped forever, doomed to a lonely existence in a windowless room for all eternity?
Of course not. If you can’t make it out before your 60 minutes is up, that’s okay. In fact, only 20% to 40% of our participants successfully satisfy the challenge, putting you in the majority if you’re not finished when the hour is up. If the game ends and you’re still stuck inside, a staff member will enter the room to show you the clues you missed, walk you through the solution, and escort you safely outside where you will then be free to leave.
Planning for an Amazing Experience
Want to make the most out of your escape room experience (and hopefully make it out in time)? Great! We want that, too.
If this is your first time, we recommend taking a look at the escape rates listed for each room before making a booking decision. Rooms with higher rates are easier to solve, giving you a fighting chance at your first EscapeWorks Denver adventure and improving your odds of winning a coveted tee-shirt. If you’re a seasoned detective and are up for a nearly-unbeatable quest, give one of the lower rated rooms a try to really up your bragging rights.

As Denver’s premier escape room facility, we’re always working on new ideas, challenging puzzles, and brain-teasing clues, giving you and your friends an experience you’ll never forget.
