Tips & Tricks

Escape rooms are all about strategy, and we've gathered a few tips to guide you towards a successful escape. 

1. Teamwork makes the dream work.
Book the escape room with friends, family, and co-workers that you know. If you end up paired with strangers, you might not enjoy the experience as much. Also, make sure you get along well with all the friends you’re inviting. Sore losers can really ruin the experience.

2.Listen to each other!
Escape rooms work best when your eyes, and ears, are open. You must be open to trying everything. If your teammate has a wacky idea – try it! It might just be crazy enough to work.

3. Be in the right state of mind.
Playing an escape room after a happy hour might sound fun at first, but you’ll quickly realize a sober mind works better on puzzles and decision making. Consider celebrating after you’ve escaped instead of before. Escape Room Hershey is actually attached to a Biergarten. Talk about easy celebrating!

4. Give me a hint!
Don’t be afraid to ask the puzzle master for a hint. If you are stuck or stopped having fun, then ask for a little push in the right direction. Don’t get discouraged or feel bad for having to ask for help. Hints are meant to guide you in the right direction, so use them!
