Escape Room Hints and Tips

Escape rooms aren’t easy to get out of, they’re a real challenge, although we have to be honest, we know that most people who take part enjoy it. We don’t like to make it too easy or otherwise no one would take part, but we would like to give you a fighting chance. Here we go with our hints and tips to getting out of the escape rooms.


A fairly obvious but crucial tip is without working as a team you’ll find it far more difficult to escape. You’ll need to communicate with each other and make sure everyone has an opportunity to speak. Don’t let anyone dominate the conversation and don’t argue over the clues. If you find that you’re stuck on one then move on to the next one, time is not on your side, so you need to work well together in order to figure out each clue quickly. 


They’re everywhere and you’ll need to work as a team to find them. Once you’ve found them all, you can then try to work them all out, so you can unlock the door. Don’t spend too much time on each clue because this could use up time better spent elsewhere on another clue. If you can’t work it out go to the next one. 

Look everywhere

The clues could be everywhere as we’ve said, so you’ll have to really make an effort to be inventive with your searching and look in places you wouldn’t expect to find anything. Find team members that will look everywhere and are willing to pull together. 

Escape Milton Keynes – the best way to spend an hour we can think of.

Escape rooms are fun, they’re not easy and you may not get out in the hour the first time you do it. However, we do believe that this is by far one of the best ways to spend an hour, and if you don’t get it right first time, you can always come back and try again – many of our visitors do. All you need to remember is that a strong team will give you a winning chance, so communicate well, search high and low for those clues and don’t spend too much time dwelling on one particular clue. Book your escape room today – we really hope our hints and tips have helped. 

5 Fantastic Team Building Activities

We’re going to be looking at other team building activities today, not just at escape. We know you enjoy our escape games, but we know there are others out there you may enjoy even more. We know that corporate teams really enjoy team building activities because they get so much out of them, and we’ve seen it with our own eyes here at Milton Keynes. We’ve chosen five, and you can make an educated choice and decide which ones you think are best for you. 

Fancy some shouting, jumping and leaping around?

Boot Camp is a little more physical than your average team building activity, but we rate it all the same. They’re usually run by ex-military, so they know what they’re doing. There’ll be some sort of assault course and your group may be broken up into separate teams where they’ll be pitched against each other. It will foster competitiveness amongst your players and perhaps help them to understand the benefits of helping each other out and cheering each other on. 

It’s a knockout.

This is based on an old 70s programme and involves lots of obstacles to climb and crawl through, water, foam and lots of team spirit. If you decide to go on that one, you won’t be sorry, it’s tremendous fun, and if nothing else you’ll have had a great day out. It’s perfect for bonding, breaking the ice and bringing out the extrovert in you. 

Scavenger Hunt.

This is for those that like a bit of a mystery outdoors. This will involve hunting for different items, or should we say scavenging? You’ll collect some physical objects and then collect them at the end, and who knows there might even be a prize. 

Sports Day.

If you feel energetic enough and you have enthusiasm for this then why not? You’ll get your team talking, competing and getting some exercise. You could even organise some prizes in order of 1st, 2nd and 3rd, gold, silver and bronze. 

Escape Milton Keynes for the best team building activity there is.

So, there you have it, and now we have the fifth and final game. This is something you’ll really like, and if you’re into team building, bring the team down to Milton Keynes. They’ll be locked in a room for 60 minutes, and in that time, they’ll have to find a series of clues, work them all out, and once they’ve found them all, unlock the door so they can be released. Why not book your room via the phone or online and get your teams ready? We can’t wait to see you and you’ll have a very warm welcome when you arrive.
