How Escape Artists & Our Escape Rooms Work
What people say about our escape rooms
Cyclone had sixteen of our staff split up over three rooms for an hour of fun at Escape Artists recently. It was an awesome team building environment
New Zealand Couriers Dunedin had twenty five of our staff in last December. It was extremely fascinating to see differing personalities interact and complex problem solving skills come to the fore.
My husband and I completed The Enchanted Academy after doing 2 rooms at Escape Artists Dunedin earlier in the week. We loved all 3 Escape Artists rooms and would highly recommended the rooms. We have done over 40 rooms and these did not disappoint. Great themes and unique puzzles!
Inspires thinking outside the box and rewards clever ideas. Definitely worth a go with a few friends - I would recommend trying multiple rooms too as the experience is different in each one. Very rewarding new experience if you have a sense of adventure.
Definitly recommend this place! Best escape rooms in Christchurch! High quality rooms with great puzzles to solve! Gets the brain thinking!

Escape Room Tips for
It’s important to remember everyone has good ideas at different times. We often see players with an idea, something on their mind and don’t share it with the group. This may be because they think they might be wrong. Good ideas have to start somewhere! Being involved and communicating ideas to your team is a great place to start. Actively listening to your team is also a valuable asset. It’s a common occurrence that we will notice someone in the team repeating the correct answer; or, the correct concept multiple times. It can be a few moments before someone else takes on their comments and contributes to that aspect of the challenge. The saying many hands make light work is a valuable strategy into escaping from the rooms effectively. Another important aspect is communicating what tasks you have completed or ideas you have tried. Its not uncommon for someone to complete a puzzle and unlock the next step while keep their success secret from the rest of the team. An important element of team building is sharing in each others individual and collective success. If you solve something on your own, share it with the group! Explain how you came to the logic that lead to being successful. Letting all players be involved and participate isn’t something Escape Artists can control while players are in the rooms.. but its something we love to see happening.
We often get asked what kind of people make for a successful escape room team. After over 3 years of experience and thousands of games run we can conclusively say … We have no idea. We have almost given up being able to predict what demographic will do better than others. Our puzzles are mostly designed for adults with the belief that adults make things harder than they need to be. We have a very common personality type we see in the rooms and its called the ‘Over Thinker’. This is the person that can turn a simple, straightforward problem and over analyze, confuse, change and misinterpret what is being asked. Often we want to include previous experience and strengths we have developed over our lives into normal everyday problems. Escape rooms challenge this way of thinking and encourage the principle of ‘Occams Razor’. This simply put means that often the obvious answer is the correct one. Another way of saying it is that the more assumptions you have to make, the more unlikely an explanation.
