How to Be Successful in an Escape Room

We’re going to be giving you a few hints and tips on how to be successful in an escape room today so you can come up with your own plan to get out within the hour and win. Our tips should help you before you come so you’re fully prepped once we open the doors of our Escape Room and – lock you in!

Have a delegator.

You’ll need a delegator, someone who’s a good team leader, and by that we don’t mean someone who will dominate, take over and simply do the entire thing by themselves while you run along behind. This is someone who’s good at well, delegating, and telling others what needs to be done. That’s also someone who won’t really take part much themselves but cheer everyone on, suggesting places to look and encouraging everyone. 

You’ll also need a strong team who talk.

People need to be able to communicate well and get on with each other. Therefore, not a great idea to bring people who don’t get on or who are likely to end up squabbling with each other. Everyone needs a turn to have their say and feel their contribution counts, a happy team will lead to a winning team. 

Make sure you’re prepared to search every single corner.

Up on the door frames, down under the chairs, under the carpets or rugs. Place all your clues in a safe place and then go back to them. You can return to them at a later time and then work them all out together as a team. Don’t leave them in a random place on a chair or throw it to one side carelessly, because if you lose one of them, you’ll be stuck. Then you’ll potentially waste precious time trying to find it or be left trying to work it all out without that one essential missing clue. 

Escape Peterborough – for the kind of fun you won’t forget in a hurry.

So now you have a better idea of how to beat the game and the clock why not take the time to book your room? We can’t wait to see you here and we know you’ll love it. You can book either online or over the phone, and once you’ve booked all you’ll have to do is get yourself down here.


All the rooms are themed, using ideas from music or film from popular culture from floor to ceiling, so you can really immerse yourself in the moment. If you fail to get out of the room within the allotted hour don’t worry, you can always try again, we have lots of people visiting us who enjoyed it so much the first time, they can’t wait to do it again.

It’s a great excuse because it’s so much fun, so we’ll see you when you get here, you’ll have a warm welcome, just make sure you arrive about 30 minutes before you’re due to start so you can have a debrief before going in. Get in touch with us today.
