7 safety tips in one escape room
The escape rooms offer a unique kind of live entertainment. They are fun, exciting and social, plus they lead to a whole new dimension of games. With so many great escape rooms near you, it's easy for everyone to come in and experience the feeling they create.
But it is important to remember that you are still in a room and the future of the world is not in it, so you need to take care of yourself and your friends. So keep these good safety tips in mind!
Wear comfortable clothes
Sometimes you will have to crawl on the floor and peek under the tables, carpets and shelves, so your clothes should be comfortable and wide enough. Carry what you usually take with you when you go for a casual walk or for coffee. Do not wear high heels or super tight T-shirts. Besides, nothing too sophisticated - you can damage it or hang it on something in the dark.
Get ready to see in the dark
Escape rooms usually have low lighting due to the general dramatic atmosphere, but sometimes they can be completely dark.
Escape room providers are always careful to leave you in complete darkness, so this is likely to happen for effect or only for a short period of time. But when it does happen, it's up to you to be careful in the dark and not break anything or get hurt, but to be careful about your friends. You don't want numb toes or bruised hands, do you?
Take care of your personal belongings
Some evacuation rooms have special lockers where you can leave your belongings. But where this is not provided, you will have to be careful about your personal belongings.
Do not leave your mobile phone, wallet or credit cards in the pockets of the coat hanging on the hanger in the waiting room, where everyone can reach them. And for those of you who have purses and bags if you do not want to take them you carry with you, you can always ask an employee to look after your things.
Watch out for sharp objects
Usually in the rooms do not have sharp objects, but in cases where there is, for example, a letter opener or a Swiss Army knife, use them with caution. In other cases, if there is broken or damaged equipment in the room, watch out for sharp edges.
Sometimes live games are so fast-paced and exciting, it's easy to forget that you're still just in the game, not on a mission to save the world. Be careful and watch out for sharp objects.
Stay away from windows
If the room has windows, do not open them. There is no need to bend down and look outside. First of all, there are no clues important to the game, we guarantee it. Secondly, if you need to leave the room urgently, there are other ways. Escape rooms always have instant exit systems. You don't have to go through the window.
Be careful with electrical outlets
Do not plug your fingers into electrical outlets. No one would ever put a trace in an electrical outlet.
Do not use force!
Do not try to tear down wallpaper, break things or get on shelves. You will be surprised how many managers catch their guests, trying to climb through the attic. If you start using the room in a way that should not be used, you are likely to get hurt. This is the golden rule of the escape room - use your brain, not force.
Overall, the escape rooms are super safe. The only things you'll usually find there are scary props, haunting scripts, and puzzles that can "drive you crazy." But on the rare occasions when there's something dangerous, please keep your composure so everyone can to have a good time.
