What To Expect on Your First Escape Room Adventure

Escape rooms aren’t meant to be easy or quick to complete. To progress through the stages, everyone must think critically and make important decisions. Therefore, escape rooms are an excellent activity for improving problem-solving and critical thinking skills in people of all ages.

You will rarely see escape rooms looking the same. Escape rooms aim to be one-of-a-kind in various ways. This article will assist you in differentiating between the different types of escape rooms and planning how to solve them.

Two Major Categories of Escape Rooms

There are two kinds of escape rooms: linear and nonlinear. Knowing the escape room categories can help you plan and strategize while playing. Depending on the type, you should know how to solve the puzzle, how difficult it will be, and the challenge sequences.

1.     Non-Linear Escape Room

The most challenging escape rooms are non-linear escape rooms. The challenges in a non-linear escape room are made up of multiple linear challenges that connect in some way to solve a larger puzzle. Puzzles are frequently timed, and escapists must solve them quickly.

This category is for small groups looking for a serious challenge. Non-linear escape rooms are better suited for large groups because they can divide into small teams to solve various challenges.

2.     Linear Escape Room

Linear escape rooms present their challenges in a logical sequence. This category is ideal for beginners. Escapists can solve one problem at a time before moving on to the next. Each challenge includes clues that are easier to solve and require fewer team members.

Linear escape rooms are good places to start if you want to become a good escapist while still learning and developing your logical and focus skills.

How Do You Solve the Puzzle in Escape the Room?

The escape room creator’s imagination is used to create the puzzles. As a result, the sky’s the limit for puzzles in escape rooms. There are, however, a few common puzzle types for which you can prepare.

a.     Scavenger

When people think about escape rooms, they often think of scavenger puzzles. Escapists will be hunting for concealed objects such as keys, puzzle pieces, and slips of paper in these puzzles. Scavenging is a common technique in non-linear puzzles, so if you can’t figure out why the next door won’t open even though you have the correct combination, start looking! You may be missing a crucial piece of the puzzle.

b.    Physical

Physical puzzles need the player to move about the room and interact with objects. They are harder to solve, so check about the area for anything strange and apparent hints to where things are located and how they are put together.

c.     Written

Written puzzles are designed to confuse common sense and logic in unexpected ways. This puzzle requires you to think outside the box when it comes to numbers and words.


Nobody can deny that escape rooms are exciting and fun. Because of this, they have seen a tremendous increase in popularity around the world.

Furthermore, it is well-known that when people engage in hands-on activities rather than listening to a lecture, they retain information more effectively and enjoy learning more. As a result, an escape room is an excellent way for your entire team to participate in a dynamic, exciting, and skill-building activity.
