As escape rooms host Twinwoods Adventure launch a range of remote packages during the COVID-19 pandemic, they discuss what makes a great experience for players.

Escape rooms have exploded in popularity in recent years, with not even a global pandemic stopping the fun. Many escape room hosts, including Twinwoods Adventure, are now offering a range of remote escape room packages, so wannabe adventurers and game show contestants can still get their fix.

The features of a great escape room

What makes an escape room so much fun is the camaraderie and teamwork that is necessary to solve the puzzles and get out. Only by pooling wit and mental resources can players escape the room before the time is up. For that reason, the best escape rooms allow at least three players in.

A good escape room needs plenty of drama. Players want to be wholly immersed in the experience, coming away with adrenaline coursing through their veins. Exciting plot twists, high stakes, and a dramatic mission and room design all add to the appeal. Escape rooms are not just about escaping the physical room; players want to feel like they are escaping reality for a short time.

The best escape rooms, whether physical or remote, offer all of these features and more.

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
