How can you beat the Escape Room game and get out within the hour? If this question has been haunting you for a while, perhaps you’ve tried and failed before, and now you’d like to win.
Yes, you can escape from your studies, even if it’s only for an hour. That’s what a lot of students do here in Dublin. They come down to our escape rooms and play our themed games for an hour and they forget about deadlines, studies and books and just let their hair down. It’s the best way to escape all of that stress and unburden themselves.
Can you beat our escape rooms?
Our escape rooms are all themed, they’re usually ideas taken from successful, well-known movies and people can recreate these films in a room with their friends. That’s because the rooms will have been decorated and furnished to look just like a scene from their favourite movie. You’ll then have to find a series of clues and puzzles, and work them out once you’ve found them in order to escape the room within 60 minutes. It’s fast, fun and furious as you try to find the clues in the room and escape in time.
Perfect opportunity to de-stress
It’s also the perfect opportunity to leave university worries behind while you enjoy yourselves for a while and destress. It’s also a perfect opportunity for new students, those that haven’t had an opportunity to socialise and meet their fellow cohorts yet, and the shy ones to get out from behind the desk and have some fun.
Break the ice with other students and have some fun
Judging by the atmosphere we see when our students arrive and by the numbers we see coming through the door, we know it’s popular with students and that they get so much out of it.

This is all about fun and enjoying time out with friends, it’s not always about the winning.

With life being so hectic and demanding it’s good to no you can sign off from it for a short time, setting your imagination free and escaping the rat race for just 60 minutes.
Did we say imagination?
Well yes, you can really escape into the world of your imagination, so said Willy Wonka, so while you’re escaping the room you’re escaping inside your head at the same time. Shall we explain? What we mean by that is that the escape rooms are all themed, and the choice of themes are taken from popular culture. They could be anything from Harry Potter (magic), Area 51 (science fiction) and Contagion (dystopian). The ones we have here at Dublin are, Witchcraft and Wizardry, Espionage and EMCU Trials.
There’s enough room for the fun to begin
The rooms will accommodate from 2 to 6 people, and in that time, you will be in the themed room of your choice trying to find your way out. This time will be spent searching for clues which will be hidden everywhere you can think of. It will be your job and that of your friends to find the clues, so you can crack the code and escape the room within the hour.
Who Enjoys Escape Rooms?
The escape rooms are extremely popular with a variety of different people as we’ve already seen, but who are these people?

It’s also a great way to discover hidden talents and find out who’s got the best problem-solving skills, communication or analytical skills.

When you visit Escape Dublin we want you to enjoy yourself, whoever it is you bring, whether it’s friends, fellow students or your team mates from work. So, we’ve come up with some popular questions and provided answers, so you’ll feel as prepared as you’re going to be once you come on down and visit us.
What is the Escape game phenomena?
Escape games are team-based games where you are locked in a room with around 2 to 5 people ideally. Once you’re locked in you’ll have to find some clues and solve them as part of a series of challenges and once you solve them all you can get out, that’s once you’ve obtained the key to the door.
Why this type of game?
This type of game is gaining in popularity because it’s different, it’s fun and it’s perfect as an ice breaker, a way to bond friends, students corporate team members who are in need of a day out to get to know each other. Escape games are ideally designed to celebrate big events too, such as hen and stag dos, anniversaries and birthdays. They’re such a great way for friends and family to catch up with each other and simply enjoy some quality time together.
Are there age restrictions?
No there aren’t really. However, we would suggest that the puzzles and clues we use here may be a little too demanding for those under the age of 10. If there are children under the age of 16, we would suggest they’re accompanied by an adult.
I suffer with claustrophobia so should I still come?
The rooms are a lot bigger than you’d imagine, but if you’re worried about it then we can always leave them unlocked, you’ll still have a fantastic time.
What is the maximum/minimum team size?
We suggest that in order to enjoy the game more, that there are around two members at a minimum, and 6 as a maximum total, so you’re not on top of each other.
How much time is needed?
Obviously, there’s an hour when you’re in the room, but we’ll have to brief you first before you go on, so we’d advise that you allow for an hour and a half. That way we have time to brief you and then you’ll have your allotted time of 60 minutes in the room.

Are you trying to arrange an escape room activity and need some tips on how to get out within the time limit? Well you’ve come to the right place. We’re going to talk you through a few little hints and tips we think may help, for inside the room and out.
Work as a Team
Firstly, the team. You’re going to be locked in a room with a group of people and you’re going to have to work together. If it’s a work team building exercise the whole point is to bond with new and existing team members so you might not have a choice who you’re locked in a room with. It won’t look good if you’re quibbling about who you have to rub shoulders with, and it won’t make a good impression on your boss.
Utilise Everyone's Skills
However, for the rest of you, if this is a friends and family outing, perhaps you’re arranging it as a birthday surprise, then choose carefully who you choose to be locked in a room with. Choose people who you know have good maths skills, who have great ideas, and who is good at communicating? Choose people who you will be able to work together and are familiar to each other and naturally, who also like each other!
Don’t Let One Person Dominate
Yes, you’ll have people who are good on ideas and communication, but what you don’t want is one person who dominates the entire thing. Someone who feels they should take control and work out all the puzzles and clues by themselves. No, that’s not what you need, working as a team is what’s needed, with everyone getting a fair chance to crack the clues and puzzles.
Observe and Pay Attention
Make sure that all of you observe carefully everything around you. Don’t sit still because every minute counts and there’s a potential clue in every book or chair in that room. There’s the odd red herring, but it’s worth considering every viable clue you can find, one of them is going to turn up trumps.
Don’t Lose Anything
Keep track of everything you find because you’ll need to put it all together to solve a puzzle or two, so don’t leave things lying around, or worse still lose them. Everything is strategically placed somewhere in that room for a reason, so you can piece together a clue that helps you get out.
