7 Things to Know Before Playing an Escape Room Game
By: Fox in a Box Tucson Escape Room
1) What the heck is an escape room game?
Imagine you’re Indiana Jones, solving mysteries and exploring through an environment that’s full of puzzles and clues. Yep, that pretty much sums up the escape room experience!
2) Escape rooms are usually difficult!
It wouldn’t be fun if it were easy! Puzzles often require logic and teamwork. Fox in a Box Tucson prides itself on having puzzles that are challenging, but still exciting and mind bending! #challengeaccepted
3) Create your team!
Make sure you come in with a group you’re ready to cooperate with. Communication is the foundation for a successful escape game (such as our Bank Robbery or Zombie Lab). Teamwork grows naturally when you’re in our rooms!
4) Will you be pinned up with strangers?
Unfortunately, a lot of American escape rooms pair you up with strangers unless you buy out all of the tickets in the room. We don’t do that. Who wants to meet a bunch of random people just before walking into a dark and mysterious room?! Some escape games let you reserve the entire game for your group, but make sure to check before you go. It can be really awkward meeting people right before your game starts. May the odds ever be in your favor… or just book with Fox in a Box Tucson!
5) Compare reviews
Escape game businesses mostly have 5 stars, as they should. Read reviews closely, because they are written by people who lived through the experience. You’ll quickly find that not all escape rooms are created equal, and reviews will help you decide what fits best for your escape game experience! Some escape rooms have the Game Master walk into the room with you, have strict rules, poor customer service, etc- so do your research!
6) Read Frequently Asked Questions!
Escape games are new to the US, we’re used to millions of questions. Each escape room business should have a FAQ on their website, and if not, or if you have more questions, call them up! Our goal is to help you have the most immersive, exciting and fun experience possible, so we’ll help you find the best fitting game possible.
7) Pro tip: Don’t show up under the influence!
Escape rooms are real life logical puzzles. Alcohol or anything else that might inhibit your logic will definitely inhibit your experience. Save the partying for right after the game! Fox in a Box Tucson is next to so many bars, restaurants and sight seeing.
Bottom Line: Be prepared to go with the flow and HAVE FUN! Check out our rooms at Fox in a Box Tucson
