October 22, 2020

Escape games and puzzle rooms have become quite popular in the last few years. You may have heard of mobile escape rooms, or maybe even experienced one for yourself firsthand, but there are still many misconceptions surrounding them. Although mobile escape games can come across as intimidating and impossible to get through, they’re actually quite fun and gratifying!

Misconceptions About Mobile Escape Rooms

We hear so often from our guests that they must be dumb for not escaping, and this is the farthest thing from the truth! Escape rooms are designed to be challenging - that’s all a part of the fun. Not every group will escape each time, and that’s okay. Just like other puzzle games, escape rooms require time and practice to master. Escaping is a learning experience that gets easier over time. The groups who do really well have likely tried to escape before, and if you do happen to get out on the first try, then you’ll love the more challenging themes! 

Just remember that escape rooms are meant to test you, but they’re also meant to be enjoyable - so don’t take it too seriously! And try not to get discouraged because you can always try again.

#2 Mobile escape rooms are designed to be unsolvable.

Again, escape rooms are designed to challenge you and your teammates, but no room is unsolvable. Each theme is carefully structured and designed to provide all the information you need to solve the puzzle using items found in the room. Unlike other puzzle games, escape rooms are intended to be an immersive experience where guests use their surroundings to find clues rather than reading it from text in a book. And, if you are having trouble or get stuck somewhere along the way, you can always reach out to your game master for help!  

#3 All escape room companies are connected. 

Many people assume that escape room facilities are a part of the same affiliation or association, but this often isn’t the case. Contrary to popular belief, escape rooms typically run as small businesses that are owned and operated by individuals with a passion for puzzles. Some escape room companies may belong to a parent company or be part of a franchise, but the majority are locally owned.

#4 The staff are watching and judging you the whole time.

We can see why this would be a concern for some, but when it comes to The House Escape team, our only goal is to help you escape. Just because we know how the puzzle is solved doesn’t mean we think it’s easy for others to figure out. We know these puzzles are challenging and while we do get a good laugh from some of the quirky things people try, we’re watching and rooting for you the entire time!
