How Escape Rooms Work

If you enjoy problem solving, collaboration and working under pressure, then our escape games will be your new favorite activity.

So how exactly do escape games work? You are given a mission and placed into a themed room where you must explore to find hints and clues. You may find a container that needs a passcode to open, or a lock that needs a key. If you search hard enough, you can figure out passcodes, open all the locks, find hidden items, and ultimately free yourself.

All of our games have a different theme that comes with a backstory, which the player then figures out as they advance. Our diverse games range from a bank heist to a deadly viral outbreak, and from a mysterious kidnapping of your Uncle to a group of superheroes trying to save a city. We think you’ll find that all of our games are a blast! Watch videos and learn more about Mastermind room themes on our Games page.

Tips For Escaping:

Wear comfy clothing. You may be crawling on the floor, and there may be a lot of standing, sitting and searching for items on the ground.

Communicate with teammates. You have to tell your group members if you've solved a puzzle, or you need help with something. But most importantly, tell them if you solved a clue. If you have an object that won't open until you put in the correct code, and someone else found a clue with the code you need, you won't put everything together unless you’re communicating. It works well to assign a leader of some kind who will keep track of what's going on when you’re escaping.

Also, it is helpful to gather all the clues you find and put them in one place. Put like items together and then put any clues or puzzles that have already been solved in a superstar pile.

Finally, check everything in the room! Clues are hidden anywhere and everywhere. To win you’ll have to think creatively, listen, communicate, and collaborate with your team.
