1: Read this article
Just kidding around
1: Google and Yelp are your best friends
Google “Escape Room YOUR CITY NAME” and see what arises. Dig deeper and look for the map so you can even find one nearby you. When you have found a few great prospects head over to Yelp and see how they compare to other rooms. Read a few of the reviews, you might even find out one is too scary for what you find attractive.. or one doesn’t do well with kids.
Step two: Check out their social media for promotion codes
You’ve found the escape room you think you’d like to visit, awesome. You can Google and yelp like nobody’s business. Now you’ll want to see if they offer any special codes on their social media pages. We will have the best deals on our Facebook and Instagram within my escape room.

3: Go to their Website
Now that you’ve your smarty jeans discount, you’ll want to know when the place has availability and what rooms they have. The majority of the places you’re going to see will have multiple rooms with different themes. Also, most escape rooms make you book in advance and some can get pretty busy. Check out their booking page and see what they have open. Then book it before anyone else does!
*Be careful when booking a part room. If there are 6 video poker machines available and you’ve only lined up 4 players, 2 more players could join your game : if you call the business though, they may assist you and block it for you
Step: Be on time!
Your Game Master will cherish you for it and being on his good side cannot be a bad thing. A game master is the one supplying you any hints or clues if you’re struggling after all.
Step 5: Listen to the Rules/Intro
They’re there for a reason! Not only do we hate when guests break stuff, but we’ll usually tell you how to avoid things that will only waste your time! Remember we would like you to have fun and get out! We won’t tell you not to climb on something as a trick.

Step 6: No Lollygagging
Okay, now you’re in this gloriously adorned room and all you should do is look at all the pretty details for the next 5 minutes. Not a chance. Don’t do that. Most rooms give you 60 minutes, so you’ll need to hustle. Give yourself 10 seconds to comprehend the work they put into the beauty and then start shredding it apart. (okay not literally, that would draw, just start moving things and looking every where)
Sometimes you’ll need to find objects hidden around the room to help you with other questions… sometimes you’ll need to actually find the questions… so start looking and gathering all you find!
Step 7: Separate
Some rooms are harder than others or have an overabundance questions than others, but there’s no harm in splitting up. Some rooms have multiple linear and low linear questions (linear meaning you will solve a problem that leads into the next problem and so on). So you’ll benefit from breaking into a couple teams and tackling multiple questions at once.
