How Do Escape Rooms Work?
How Do Escape Rooms Work?
The concept is simple — a team, a time limit, and a locked room. But from there it gets infinitely more exciting, suspenseful and complicated. Escape rooms aren’t your average group activity. After all, it’s not every day you track down spies or escape homicidal maniacs.
If this is your first time, then you may be wondering how this thing we call an escape room actually works. Let’s break it down:
Step 1: Assemble the Team
Exit Strategy Games is 100% private. That means you only play with those you bring with you. So, choose your team wisely. It could be your friends, your co-workers or some dude named Bob you just met ten minutes ago on the street.
Step 2: Book a Room
This one’s pretty obvious. Before you can dive into another world of thrills and chills, you need to book one of our private escape rooms at Exit Strategy Games. It’s simple. Click on our Book Now tab, then scroll down to check out availabilities. Pick the date and time you and your team want to come, then reserve your very own room.
Step 3: Arrive a Little Early
We recommend that you come about 15 minutes before your allotted time. This allows us to give you some pointers about what you’ll be expecting. Each room has a mission you and your team must complete, whether it’s escaping some deranged psychopath in the Torture Chamber or flushing out Soviet spies in the Conspiracy Theory. Plus, arriving early allows you and your team to get in the zone.
Step 4: Time to Lock the Door
Once you know your mission, we lock the doors — Bwahaha! After that, it’s up to you and your team. But hurry up! You only have 60 minutes.
Step 5: Solve the Clues Like a Boss
Working with your teammates, you’ll find tons of clues, puzzles, and mysteries to solve. Teamwork is essential to your survival. We also demand mandatory fun and laughter.
Step 6: Get Outta There!
Once you’ve solved all the clues and figured out your exit strategy, then it’s time to skedaddle. You’ve done it! It’s time to celebrate. Remember, though, that whether your teams wins or loses, you’ll make some amazing memories.
Escape Rooms: A New Type Of Fun In Elk Grove
Escape rooms are an interactive real-life game experience that puts you in the thick of it. There’s no point-and-click here. You are the star of your very own adventure. The basic premise involves a locked door, tons of clues and puzzles — and only 60 minutes to make your way out. Working with your team, you need to decipher codes and find hidden messages before the timer hits zero.
With the world inundated with smartphones, video games and social media, escape rooms offer, well, an escape! Leave the humdrum of the every day and set out for an experience like no other. They’re challenging, as each scenario involves problem-solving, yet they’re incredibly fun. Themes vary among escape rooms, but how do serial killers and 1970’s spies sound to you?
There can be creepy or thrilling elements and intense excitement, but escape rooms are not necessarily designed to be scary. Although, depending on the theme, they may be a little too much for smaller tykes.
