Finding Your Perfect Escape Room

Finding the best escape room in your area is one that many escape room fans often ask.

You may be feeling too overwhelmed because you have too many options to choose from and are trying to find the right one. Or you may be new to the exciting world of escape room games and are trying to find out some basic information before actually visiting one. The information below can help you to sift through the options and find the one that’s perfect for you, as it can be more challenging than you think to find the ideal escape room that’s close by.

Beginning Your Search

The Internet is the obvious place to start, especially for those who don’t know too much about the subject. You’ll probably find plenty of potential escape rooms within easy reach if you live in a large town or city, although the next step is to start narrowing them down to those that look promising.

Ratings, comments, and reviews from escape room fans who have already visited a particular facility can easily be found on the Internet, and you get the benefit of the opinions of previous customers, whether using Google, TripAdvisor or Facebook to search. Reading online reviews can be a practical way to get a feel for the type of experience you can expect, although of course, everyone has their own opinion.

Look At Professional Escape Room Reviews

There are many escape room websites run by enthusiasts if you feel you need more insight than the typical escape room customer might provide, and these are also useful places to look. Of course, you also need to remember that professional escape room reviewers also have their own thoughts and opinions, so all these reviews are subjective to a point. But browsing these sites can help to give you reviews that are easy to understand, well written and well organized. Pay attention to those reviews which outline what the player liked or didn’t like about that particular escape room experience. You may want to take into account a reviewer’s opinion again if you find reviews that you like and seem to be a match with your interests, tastes and overall what you are looking for.

Finding Escape Room Enthusiasts

However, keep in mind that asking friends, coworkers or family members who play escape rooms for their recommendations can also be a useful way of finding the perfect experience and you don’t always need to go online. It’s easier than you might think to run into escape room enthusiasts who are only too glad to recommend somewhere near to you; you’ll meet them at social events, work events and just about anywhere else. Trusting those people who know you well can be an effective way to find the escape room game experience that’s just right for you, especially if you focus on asking them about the theme, props and overall environment, as well as special deals, ease of parking and other potential amenities or perks of the place.

Favorite rooms, and which ones you should play or perhaps avoid are also topics to talk about with your Gamemaster. Of course, you don’t want any spoilers that might affect your experience, but your Gamemaster can give you an honest, unbiased and professional opinion from someone who knows what they are talking about.

Discover Your Escape Room Game Style

Trying out some different escape rooms can help you decide what is best for you, as there are different sized rooms, different styles and varying levels of production. Some escape room game players like to be immersed in a fascinating story for the hour it takes them to play, while other enthusiasts prefer to have a series of challenging puzzles to solve. Finding some escape rooms and actually playing the game at different facilities is the easiest way to determine what you like and what you are good at, as well as what is available where you live.

Finding a Theme

When looking for the ideal escape room, looking through a long list of different themes is a great way to find what interest you. Everybody playing the game along with you should get something out of the experience, meaning the theme should be appealing and realistic. Finding the best escape room is largely about finding the theme that works best for you and your team, and talking it over with the other players ahead of time is recommended. That way, everybody’s comfortable with your chosen theme.


You and the other players on your team should give a lot of thought to how difficult you want the experience to be, and the level of difficulty is one of the most crucial factors in finding just the right escape room game experience. The difficulty of the game will determine how exciting you find the game and ultimately how much you get out of the experience in terms of satisfaction and enjoyment. You don’t want the game to be so challenging that it’s no fun to play and all it does is make you stressed and frustrated. On the other hand, you may well get bored quickly if the game is just too easy. Enjoying the escape room game experience is all about being realistic when it comes to the level of difficulty.
