What is an Escape Room ?

An Escape Room is a popular activity which can be played by several participants. Locked in a room symbolising a closed place (a castle, a pirate ship, an Egyptian pyramid, a prison, a distant planet, etc.), the participants must work together to investigate and solve the puzzles that will allow them to escape in a limited time.

Reflection, cooperation, imagination and fun, the Escape Room allows everyone to share an amazing and unforgettable moment.

(And now you can even do it at home !)

How does an Escape Room work ?

Basically, an Escape Room always takes place in three steps :

The briefing

The Game Master (the one who organises and manages the game) invites the participants and explains the context of the game : the time, the situation and the objective. In most cases, the objective is to get out of an enclosed space in less than 60 minutes. The Game Master should also explain how to start the game : what challenge or puzzle to solve to get started. The Game Master then lets the participants into the playroom, and the countdown begins !

The game

Once locked in the playroom, participants, young and old, must work together to explore the area, find clues, solve puzzles and take part in challenges which will allow them, step by step, to progress in the game and escape before the end of the countdown.

The celebration

Whether the objective was reached or not, whether you escaped before the end of the countdown or not, whether the alarm went off just right before you reach your goal, the Escape Room always ends with a debriefing between the players and the Game Master and, usually, with a drink or even a slice of birthday cake. We really had a good time, didn’t we ?

Some of the typical elements of an Escape Room

Cadenas Escape Game
ElementDescription
Locks and wrenchesTo move forward and open certain doors or safes, you will need to find physical keys or numeric codes in the room that will unlock certain locks.
A locked exit door​This is the final door that you will have to open in less than 60 minutes.
Many rooms​Often, the first piece you enter will not be the only piece you will need to solve the complete set.
Hidden doors​This is the element most appreciated by the players. In some room, there are hiding places/openings that lead to other rooms. Hidden doors are usually activated by magnetic/electronic switches, by a staff member, or by simply obtaining instructions or the ability to remove an object to find a tunnel/gate.
