Thanks for the information I happen to be going to a escape room later today
Just did an escape room last night. This SO works. It was THE hardest around, and no one, except for one person had been to an escape room. Myself, and one other lesson had ever watched this video, but we like "tutored" everyone else, and gave them tips. We didn't get out in time, but we were on the very last step, and almost made it. Thanks so much for this awesome video. 😁
Did any one else notice, the studio c sticker on the door in the background?

I've only ever done one escape room and it was with a couple girls from my girl scout troop. We were on the last thing, which was morse code that gave the code for the door. It would've been fine since we had a good five-six minutes left and it was only four numbers, but the sheet was locked in a box that we hadn't been able to open yet so we had no idea how to figure out the numbers. Someone unlocked the box at like a minute thirty and we managed to get out with five seconds left. That escape room triggered my anxiety and I ended up just suffering the whole time -w-
That is so funny. I would have been so frustrated.

I remember one day I was at a really hard escape room with some friends, and we had just figured out the last part of the puzzle.. So then we were entering the final numbers into the last lock (the room was done once it was opened) and like 3 numbers in our time ran out I wanted to rip out my hair lmao

Lol this isn’t any of the best tip “on the least digit there are only ten combos” Smh Just crack the lock from the start, for example pull down the lock, find the one with the most friction etc.

There was this escape room where you needed to find 7 items called cores to escape. You could get up to 9, because there were 2 puzzles that you could fail. One of them was you could turn the gear left or right. Of course someone got it wrong. Somehow, another person stuck 2 Expo markers together and pushed the core out, so we got it. 😁 Another time there was this whole crazy lazer pointer puzzle. We spent probably 15 minutes on it thinking it would point to something on a wall, and it turns out it was totally unnecessary.

What is the Braille-esque code shown at 8:17? It looks like Braille but every other resource online I see for the Braille alphabet shows something different (i.e. A is encoded with just 1 dot in braille, but the chart at 8:17 shows it using 3 dots).

I won my first escape room, and me and my friend (singular friend out of many there) did most of the work. Keyword ‘most’, as we didn’t do ALL of it.

So, at 9:33, why did he go with blue first? he said go in order which would be 1,3,4,6 if in ascending order, or 6,4,3,1 if descending order right?

Referring to the number ciphers, the first one I did we couldn’t figure it out because none of the numbers matched up with the corresponding letter in the alphabet in a way that made sense. Turns out, there was a little ring we had to find, with the alphabet on the front and then a little spinner with a hole that contained a corresponding number. So if a number cipher isn’t matching up right, there maybe be something like that ring that you have to find!!

At 6:43 and 6:47 you say combination lock. But, you show permutation locks. At 7:05 you indeed have a combination lock. Strange error for an engineer.

Hi there :) I am an Escape Game employee in Murfreesboro Tennessee. I just wanted to add on here that when you are done with your locks and keys— you should just leave the locks on the hooks they came off of (when you have finished with the lock) and the key (if it had one) in the lock 🔐. When we reset these rooms and have to search for locks and keys it’s time consuming and unnecessary. But Escape Games are so much fun! You all should try them!

The point of an escape room is to test your intelligence and problem solving abilities through a series of clues/tests. If you lookup tips and tricks before doing one doesn't that ruin the point? It's like buying a video game to google every question you have instead of figuring it out on your own through playing. next they'll be selling escape room strategy guides in the waiting room for an escape room.

Yes! Finally! A video where I can ruin my fun mystery experience! Thanks so much mark! But I think there are a couple things that could be better. Like your ideas could be better such as Taking th clock on the wall and bash it against the lock over and over until it breaks.
