What is an Escape Room?

AN ESCAPE ROOM IS A THEMED, REAL-LIFE GROUP ADVENTURE GAME

The first step is choosing an immersive scenario for your team’s game. Are you breaking out of prison? Tracking down an invaluable item in a baseball museum? Or claiming your rightful spot on the kingdom’s throne? Whichever you choose, a Syco Escape Rooms employee will fill you in on more details just before you begin the game.

Then, after introductions… the clock starts, and the race against time is on! You and your team have 60 minutes to make it through the room by finding clues and solving all the puzzles. Keep your eyes peeled and wits about you as you make your way through your escape room.

1) You find numbers written on the wall:

3 5 2

2) On a poster, you see some of the letters are colored:

X R P O M

3) You enter code
M O R P X
into a lock. It unlocks, and you receive a clue for your next puzzle!

(From 1 and 2, can you figure out why MORPX is the code?)

ESCAPE ROOM PUZZLES: WHAT TO EXPECT

Our escape rooms in Sycamore have a variety of puzzles, or mental challenges, throughout each game. Solving one puzzle typically gives you a hint for getting started on the next.

Solutions are often in the form of a number code to input into a lock. Other times, performing a task – such as placing chess pieces in the right spots on a chess board – reveals the next clue.

–  Tip: If you get stuck on one particular puzzle, you can ask for a hint!  –

Importantly, escape rooms are a team activity. There are a variety of puzzles that play to the different strengths of your different team members. This way everyone can get involved! Also, some puzzles require involvement from multiple team members. It will be important to communicate and work together to solve these challenges.

Here’s a quick example to demonstrate:

1) You find some numbers written on the walls of the room:

3 5 2

2) You see a poster, and you notice that some of the letters are colored:

X R P O M

3) You enter code M O R P X into a lock. It unlocks, and you receive a clue for your next puzzle

(From 1 and 2, can you figure out why MORPX is the code?)

WHO PLAYS ESCAPE ROOMS?

Escape rooms are a great group activity because they are enjoyable for any team. They have something to offer for everyone, from families to work groups, friend groups to dates. We are escape room enthusiasts ourselves, and while playing different games, we’ve seen 11-year-old’s birthday parties. We’ve seen retirement parties. We’ve seen first-timers and 100th-timers alike. And we’ve seen them all share in the delight and satisfaction of solving a good mental puzzle. We hope to see your team soon!
