Tue, 03 Dec, 2019

If you're new to Escape Rooms or haven't tried them yet, you're likely to encounter exaggerated stories or made-up inventions.

Don't worry, we're here to help you set a record. We'll also ease any concerns or fears you may have during your first escape game!

The Game Master as an Evil Puppeteer

This couldn't be further from the truth!

Sure, almost ALL escape rooms around the world have video surveillance, but the purpose behind it is:

A) to ensure the players' safety in the room... and

B) to assist the group when they get stuck in a particularly challenging section.

Always remember that the game masters are there to help you!

Unsolvable Puzzles

This can only be the case in rare instances where a puzzle is faulty or damaged. Escape rooms won't have unsolvable puzzles on purpose. However, stay alert for distractions! These objects can deceive you by appearing as puzzles, but their true purpose is to divert your attention.

Everything Is the Same

The idea that once you've completed one escape room, you can complete all the others is completely false. There is seemingly an unlimited number of escape room themes and inspirations that vary from room to room. There are games for every taste. 

Perhaps you're a fan of horror, or maybe a fantasy enthusiast - even VR is starting to become an established genre! We guarantee that if you look closely, you will find something unique!

You're Crazy If You Lose

Escape rooms challenge and assess a variety of skills, including teamwork and creative thinking, which require practice to master. If you fail in your escape attempt, so what?

 It's the effort that counts. The more you play, the better you will become. Practice makes perfect...

All Escape Rooms Are the Same

Some escape room providers create all their rooms based on a specific theme, like horror, to cater to a specific audience. Other companies mix it up by giving each room a different theme, offering guests a range of choices. Escape room entrepreneurs have their own philosophy and their own idea of what makes a great room. They are definitely not all the same!
