Have you ever thought about immersing yourself into a real-life treasure hunt? Well, escape rooms will let you do all that and more. These rooms are interactive experiences that allow groups of people to figure out clues and puzzles in a special themed room. But you better hurry, you only have a certain amount of time to solve all the riddles and escape the room before you fail your mission.
Build relationships through pressure
The situations will help you establish relationships with friends, coworkers, or even strangers. Everyone must work together and do so in a timely fashion. These interactive rooms force people to work together and communicate with whoever is in the room. If you are not relaying information and letting others know what you figure out, you just might not escape and succeed in completing your mission.
Communication is key
Your adrenaline will be pumping the closer you get to escaping the room. While you might not be able to contain your excitement, you will have to continue to communicate effectively. Speaking clearly and calmly especially when it is crunch time will give you a much better chance at winning. Every second counts in these rooms, so relaying information to your team is a must.
Designate a certain job for everyone in the room. This will make it easier for people to stay on task and not bounce around from clue to clue. If some people in your group finish a certain puzzle, have them help with another one or look around for another clue. Escaping the room is a strategic process and will require everyone to be working together.
