Final Thoughts

Different people enjoy different things when it comes to playing escape games. Some people like to explore while others prefer a more linear experience with puzzles. We’re not all the same, and that is a good thing. Keep in mind that a winning escape game team needs to have members with different types of personalities. A team with just communicators or supervisors will not succeed. 
Escape games can be stressful but they bring individual skills and strengths to the surface, which makes it a great group activity.
