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. You get to pick your own private team and go up against the experience as a team! A different analogy is to imagine your team entering a real life video game, and you 60 minutes to complete the mission... no pressure! It isn't virtual, it's 350 square feet full of total immersion to put you in the mindset of the theme.
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 not too hard. Our games are still exciting and mind bending! #challengeaccepted
3) Create your team!
Make sure you come in with a group you’re ready to cooperate with. Family, partners, friends, team builders- whatever you want! 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?! May the odds ever be in your favor… or just book with Fox in a Box Tucson, because we host private games only!
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 equally, 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! Fox in a Box Tucson has the highest rating of Tucson Escape Rooms on Google, Yelp, TripAdvisor and Facebook.
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 at Fox in a Box.
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.
