Remote escape rooms offer a great way for you and your friends to get together and have a good time without any of you having to leave the comfort of your own homes. But if you go ahead and book in, remember that this isn’t going to be a walk in the park. You need to prepare yourselves for a challenge, as these rooms are specially designed to get your minds working. You’ll be challenged by a theme or story line and will have to figure out clues and solve puzzles in order to get out before the time on the clock runs out. Here are a few tips that can help you to escape in time!

Work as a Team

While each team member will have their own strengths and specialisms, nobody will be able to escape the room alone. It’s going to require a team effort and you’re all going to have to pull together in order to overcome the challenge. Use everybody’s strengths, knowledge, specialisms and experience to reach your ultimate goal!

Organise Your Time

You’ll have a time limit while you’re in the room. So, figure out how much time you can attribute to each task. This may require you to split off into smaller teams, but keep communicating with one another as you go along. Avoid spending too long on one puzzle - if you can’t figure it out, switch around.

Have Fun

If you get worked up or stressed, you’re not going to have a good time and may actually struggle with puzzles or challenges more. It’s easy to get pent up when the clock is against you, but relax and enjoy yourself!.

See what our customers thought of it!

A brilliant way to spend lockdown with mates. I've always been a fan of escape rooms, so this was a very novel way to experience one. Good clues, a fun theme and a humorous "trooper' made this really enjoyable. The future of entertainment? - Zak

 

We had our own voice-controlled soldier! What a way to spend some time with friends during lockdown - it was fun directing our "trooper" remotely, and as a team.

Probably at least as fun as getting to the venue and taking the challenge in person. It even ended in a live jump off the building via video. Thanks to the team for setting up this innovation! - Julian

 

What a great Escape! Our team had a mix of first timers and more experienced players from the UK and Ireland. The playing instructions were easy for everyone to follow and it didn’t take long before we were in full flow on the mission at hand. Our designated Avatar facilitated and supported endless demands, moments of confusion, triumph, and dead ends; They became an extended part of our team, willing us on and celebrating our escape within the allotted 60 minutes! The absolute cherry on the cake was the unexpected virtual jump from the top of Twinwoods Adventure - Incredible! Buzzing and high, the laptop lid closed, and it was back to the reality of our front rooms but wearing a grin from ear to ear - The escape was real. - Libby

 

I was a bit sceptical about doing this as I thought it could get confusing, but once we were set up on Zoom, the host made everything clear and it turned out to be a breeze and a good laugh. Good escape from the daily boredom at the moment and would be fun to do anyway! - Tobias 

 

I was incredibly surprised at exactly how involving it was. It did draw you into an experience in a way other forms of entertainment are unable to. The reference materials and the fact clues came up in your inventory immediately worked very well too. - Rob

The Morse Code online escape room was incredibly good fun. Working over Zoom with your in-person 'avatar,' who was easy to direct, allowed you to view the room like you were there. Clues appeared immediately in the Google Drive for you to inspect closely and they presented us with a stiff challenge. There were a number of red herrings that kept us guessing! This experience could be done with a family around one monitor or hooked up to the TV, or with lockdown meaning relatives are distant, a fun way to catch up with them. - Adam
