1. Think simple
2. Searching
3. Organize your stuff
4. Focus on what is stopping you
5. Team roles
6. Lock types
7. Code types
8. Written clues

    Directional locks can have from 2 to 30 inputs…
    Umm… I had one I programmed 55 directions on one. So I'm pretty sure it's infinite.

  8. UltimateWolfy says:

    Definitely helpful, I've done several escape rooms, and only failed one cause there was only 4 of us, so we weren't able to go as quickly. So another tip, make sure there are enough of you in the darn room… More brains mean more brain power to counter any stupidity…

    Or just have 4 people who love puzzles & are really smart! Did a Harry Potter escape room at a convention with 3 other ladies last May & we got out in 50 minutes! We used steps 2, 3 & 5 automatically! 8, 9 & 10 were givens from the room itself! It was awesome and I kind of wish there were more HP themed escape rooms
