And then the real escape room experience starts. Initially, everyone starts exploring every nook and cranny to get more familiar with their surroundings, at first everyone generally is very tentative and as time keeps on rolling forward everyone starts to get a little more frantic, searching everywhere around them for anything that might help them to get out of the room. However not everything they find is useful, usually there would be a lot of clues everywhere at first they are not-so-subtle. Going through drawers, searching through boxes, picking into pockets, going through articles of clothing, running hands and eyes over, behind and underneath everything to find the answer. This is where communication is vital, a team that can communicate well can quickly overcome multiple challenges and obstacles by calling out what they have found out and then allocating the right person in order to solve and overcome the different challenges. Depending on the flow of the experience both challenges and solutions can be spread all over and nonlinear and some not sequential, thus everyone gets involved and that’s why its so much fun, playing the game makes you have fun and makes everyone come together and share in the enjoyment.
When one of these puzzles are solved they generally lead to something else, for example, it may be going into a new room through a door that was opened, or a bigger puzzle for which you have found a piece, or there might be padlocked case somewhere, or it may be a complete misdirection. In other words, when players are solving the puzzles they are generally led to the next step and each new step is more likely to be harder. As our enterprising team keeps on unlocking more puzzles and finding more obstacles, working together, communicating with each other in order to be more effective. Sometimes they might get stuck and for those times our escape room gives them a lifeline where they might be given a hint or two to help them continue and give them a boost to help them escape the room. So while they are doing all that time is ticking on and as time goes on the obstacles gets harder and becomes more complex, many times all these obstacles and puzzles finally lead up to a final obstacle, a final challenge which needs to be overcome for the door to be opened and for them to escape. And then the game master enters the picture again, the teams are generally led through debriefing and are helped with answers to questions and explanations of the experience if the team has any further questions. The neat thing about escape rooms is that anyone escape room can have multiple experiences and all of them can have different types of scenarios and thus for players and patrons they can experience many different types of games, all novel all live all immersive all totally fun, entertainment that is felt and experienced in the first person as if they are actors who are playing the central role in a movie.
