Easy Escape Rooms: Top Picks and What to Expect

22 Dec 2018

Are you wondering what level of difficulty to choose for your escape room (and if easy is the best option)?

There are a number of factors to consider. This guide will help you determine if easy escape rooms are right for you. Or, jump straight to our top picks for the best easy escape rooms.

What Should I Expect In My Easy Escape Room?

Every escape room uses a number of different factors to determine how easy or hard the room is. Here are some things you should expect an easy escape room to offer.

Puzzle Types

Puzzles in the easy escape room are designed to be:

1. More obvious

Hidden objects are an extremely important part of any escape room. You may be required to find a button, or realize that a book on the desk actually holds a key.

In harder escape rooms, these hidden objects are much more discreet. They’ll blend in with the background, be hidden among numerous other objects, or be placed in awkward positions.

In an easy escape room, however, uncovering a hidden object is far more simple. That doesn’t mean it will be in plain sight, but it won’t take as much hunting to figure it out.

2. Less teamwork-intensive

Teamwork is an essential part of escape rooms, and that’s usually why people book escape room experiences in the first place. It’s a great way to make your whole family work together! Harder escape rooms will require much more involved teamwork. On the other hand, easier puzzles and team events will be much easier to carry out and will be more suited toward younger members of the family.

3. Simpler (for sound clues in particular!)

Sound is an extremely important part of escape rooms. Not only can spooky sounds add to the atmosphere surrounding your room, but there may be a message hidden. Perhaps there’s a hint in Morse code or a song with peculiar lyrics that give the answer to your puzzle.

Sound clues are more likely to be obviously distinguishable from other sounds in easy rooms. In harder rooms, however, there are often extra sounds added to make it more difficult to hear the clues.

Time Requirements

All escape rooms have a time requirement, which may vary from room to room and company to company. Generally, times range from 60 to 75-minute limits.

Some easy escape rooms give a longer time limit, as less-experienced puzzle solvers may need more time to solve.

Who Can Play an Easy Escape Room?

One of the benefits of easy escape rooms is that they’re geared uniquely toward people with less experience. That usually corresponds with a lower minimum age.

In general, it’s a great idea to book an easy escape room if you have younger family members or you’ve never played an escape room before.

It’s a good way to ease yourself into the world of escape rooms, especially if you’re concerned about running into issues halfway through your experience.

Easy escape rooms allow you to work through appropriately-challenging puzzles without leaving younger members of your family in the dark.

60out offers a plethora of beginner-friendly escape rooms to choose from, catering to those seeking an easier level of challenge.

One of the perks of 60out is the understanding and accommodating staff. At 60out, if you’re having a hard time with your room, or something unexpected happens, the game masters are watching at all times, and they’ll be able to help.
