What is an escape game?

If you want to skip ahead to the list, it’s just below. However, we wanted to give a quick preview of what to expect at an escape room in case you’re new to one or might be a little nervous. The essential idea of an escape room is right in the name, to escape the room.

Don’t fret though, you aren’t trapped in there eternally until you find a way out. All escape rooms are monitored in case you panic and want to exit immediately and most even provide hints if the observers notice you’re struggling. At the end of the day it’s meant to be fun, and it’s no fun being stuck in a room and getting nowhere.

The puzzles are usually multiple steps, so one of the steps may be difficult while the others may be right up your alley! So, don’t stress over not solving something either, Linn and I had to get quite a few hints during our numerous trips to escape games.
