Escape Room Hints and Tips

Who wants hints and tips on getting out of the Escape Room? Well, we can imagine that would be anyone who’s going to be taking part in our Escape Games. We see a lot of people come and go, here at Escape Southend, and we see them ask themselves what it takes to get out of the room within the hour – and it’s not easy.

We like to help our teams out and make sure they have a brilliant time when they’re with us, and so we’ve compiled a few hints and tips we think may help you get out of the room within the allotted 60 minutes.

Team work

You’ll need to work as part of a team to get around successfully and find those all so carefully concealed clues. No squabbling, so don’t bring along people who you know you’re not going to get on with, or personality clashes may abound. No working in isolation, but you should be keeping lines of communication open at all times. Let people speak and have their say, don’t dominate, and you’ll be more likely to find the clues and get out within the hour.

Delegation is key

You’ll need a team leader, someone who’s good at delegating. This person won’t be looking for clues themselves but guiding everyone else in the team. They’ll be cheering people on and helping everyone to spot those all-important clues.

Have your eyes and ears peeled

You’ll need to look everywhere, and we mean absolutely everywhere. You’ll need to try looking up at door frames, under rugs and the chairs, and generally in places you wouldn’t normally think of. Clues won’t be sitting in an obvious place waiting to be found, they’ll be cleverly concealed in all sorts of deliciously unthought of places.

Keep the clues in one place unless you want to lose the clues AND the game

Yes, don’t dump them or toss them into a corner while you excitedly start looking for others, for the likelihood is you’ll lose one or even two of them, and then be unable to finish off the game. That means you lose. So, keep them all as you find them in one central place.
