General Tips for South Lake Tahoe Escape Rooms
Communicate – Constant communication with your group is key. Share ideas, clues you’ve found, and tasks you’re working on.
Divide and conquer – Split up tasks by location or type of puzzle to work through faster. But also help each other.
Examine everything – Details matter. Inspect objects thoroughly looking for clues, patterns, hidden keys, etc. Move and open things.
Ask for hints – Don’t be afraid to request a nudge if the group gets stuck. The game masters want you to succeed.
Take notes – Keep track of puzzle solutions, clue meanings, number combinations already attempted, and anything else relevant on a notepad.
Manage time – Periodically check how much time you have left. Try to solve harder puzzles first then move faster on easier tasks.
Have fun! – While escape rooms require strategy, the best approach is to relax, get immersed in the story, and enjoy this team bonding experience.
