What ages are allowed?
Being parents ourselves, we like to keep it open for ages 7 & up. Just because kids are allowed doesn't mean you can't get a sitter and enjoy a date night!
What is an Escape room?
An escape room is a real-life team-based puzzle game, where you are locked in a room and have to solve puzzles together to get out. These are excellent team activities and can be really fun, especially if you like playing puzzle video games.
Here are some typical common elements of an "escape room game". Keep in mind that escape rooms are extremely varied, but these should give you a general idea of what to expect;
Team based - The maximum group size is usually any number between 4 or 12, although some rooms can be done with as few as 2 people. Teamwork is absolutely necessary, as some team members will discover certain items that can help out another team member.
A clear objective - This is usually to "escape" the room, which will involve finding a key, a key combo, or activating some sort of mechanism that will unlock the final door.
A story - Escape rooms are usually themed under some kind of "story". Some of these themes are stories, where you play some sort of character who was trapped in X and need to find themselves out.
An atmosphere / theme - The room will be decorated according to some sort of theme. The rooms with the best production value will have invested a lot of effort and engineering for an excellently put together experience!
Puzzles - Your puzzles can involve 1) finding hidden objects around the room 2) filling out a small crossword 3) pattern matching and recognition 4) ciphers 5) visual and spatial reasoning 6) putting together related physical objects 7) etc. The puzzles aren't really the "logic puzzle" type - usually these puzzles are highly biased towards ones that require mostly creativity and a little bit of "thinking outside of the box"
Puzzles in parallel - Especially for the first half of the game, you can expect a lot of puzzles around the room that you'll have to solve. As the game comes to a close, these puzzles will fit together into a linear sequence of puzzles that will lead to the final exit.
A time limit - You almost always get only 60 minutes to escape. Typical escape rates go anywhere from 2% to 60%.
A load of fun! - :)
Some typical physical components of an escape room game:
A locked door - This is the final door that you will have to escape from
Locks and Keys - To advance and open certain doors or chests, you'll have to find physical keys around the room, or 4-5 character/digit codes that will unlock certain locks.
Multiple Rooms - Oftentimes the first room you enter will not be the only room you'll need to go into to solve the whole game
Hidden Doors - These are some of my favorite elements, where there is some sort of hidden entrance to another room.
