3 Pro Tips To Get the Most Out of Your Online Escape Room

Escape Rooms have been around for quite a while, but Online Escape Rooms are a relatively new form of entertainment. We’ve taken everything we’ve learned from playing hundreds of escape rooms and puzzle games to deliver the best of in-person problem solving to deliver an exciting online experience.

Want to really make the most of your Online Escape Room? Here are our top tips for getting through the game and escaping!

1. Strong Communication

This one might sound obvious. But communicating with people on Zoom, joining from multiple different locations provides a unique challenge for our gamesters! It’s easy to get excited and talk over one another, so strong communication- both listening and relaying information- is really key to make sure you’re progressing through the game.

2. Keen Observation

Anything and everything MIGHT be a clue. Keep an eye out for the unexpected, and don’t pass over things in the room that, on first glance, might seem incidental. If you notice something that seems out of place, bring it up and talk about it with your other players. I love having a little bit of caffeine before I play an escape room- it helps boost my energy and keeps my senses sharp!

3. Don't Obsess

We see so many gamesters get really fixated on an idea or potential solution, and have a hard time moving away from that idea if it’s not working. More often than not, if you’ve spent a solid chunk of time trying to solve a puzzle in a certain way, and still aren’t close, you’re probably not on the right track. That’s not to say some puzzles take a while to crack… but if you’ve been going down the same path for a while, and just can’t seem to get it right, it might be useful to take a step back and reassess. 

There are so many good tips out there for how to beat an in-person escape room that just aren’t relevant in the Online Escape Room world. So we hope these tips will help you have a blast and get the most out of your Online Escape Room! What are some of the tips you’ve got for getting through an Online Escape Room?
