TIPS TO ESCAPE
Escaping the room requires finding clues and solving puzzles. Some of the information or objects are hidden, some are in plain sight, some will be revealed later in the course of the event.
Here are some tips:
TIP 1: SEARCH CAREFULLY
Some items are carefully hidden. Look under and around for hidden objects or information.
TIP 2: USE THE ITEMS IN THE ROOM
Almost all of the items in the room have a purpose or use. Think about what something will be used for and keep an eye out for the opportunity.
TIP 3: SHARE WHAT YOU FIND
You need to collaborate/communicate with your team members. Information or objects you find might be important to a puzzle someone else is working. Successful teams are the ones that communicate most effectively. Give thought to everyone's ideas.
TIP 4: DON"T WASTE TIME
If you can’t figure out a puzzle, don’t spend too much time on it as there are other puzzles in the room to work on. If you have trouble, recruit one of your teammates for help. Move on to another challenge and come back later as needed.
TIP 5: KNOW YOUR LOCKS
There are many different types of locks. A key either fits a lock or doesn't so do not force keys into locks. If you find a directional lock be aware that if you need to reset the lock simply pull gently on it twice and re-enter the directions, go slow and be sure you re-center the lock between directions.
TIP 6: DON'T GIVE UP
Some of the puzzles are meant to be difficult. Sometimes a solution is obvious, sometimes not. Take a deep breath and try to think of different ways to approach the solution. And more clues for your puzzle may be discovered or revealed later on. Stay active. Keep searching. Keep trying.
