There are many commonly asked questions at Urban Escape Games! One of the most commonly asked question from our customers in our lobby is “what exactly are we supposed to do in our escape game?”. People who have never been to Escape Games before are sometimes a little bit confused about what the purpose of the game is. So, before every team goes into our Escape Rooms we always give people tips and pointers to give them a better idea of what is to come.

When people ask what exactly they are supposed to do in order to Escape our rooms we always answer the same way. We tell our customer that ultimately they are trying to “escape the room” by finding a four-digit code to type into a box to turn a light from red to green. Once the light turns green the countdown clock will stop and that means you have escaped!

Since it is against fire code to actually lock people in a room, our design team had to think of a creative way to make people feel like they are locked in the room, and that is where the red and green lock system comes in. When our Game Masters walk people into their escape rooms they introduce themselves and then type in the code 1,2,3,4 to lock the group in the room (meaning to turn the light red). So then, the group will have one hour to solve the different puzzles, riddles, and unlock locks to eventually find a four-digit code that they plug into the light up box to turn the light from red to green. Our games are challenging, right now we have a 32% escape rate, so teams do have to work fast in order to find that last four-digit code to escape the room.
