Can You Escape? Why Gen Zers Love Escape Rooms
Our first time at Amazing Escape Room in Cherry Hill. We chose the Night at the Museum adventure. Our mission was to get into the Museum & steal a diamond before the police catch us.
My parents took me & 4 of my friends. None of us had ever been to one before. We had no idea what to expect. We were all very excited including my parents.
Escape rooms are for team building. You must go & bring your A game.
You will experience a series of clues to locks, puzzles, hints and strategies, all to get you through to the prize.
You aren’t supposed to call each other names & you should be as encouraging as possible while working together to accomplish your mission in the hour they give you.
There is a game coordinator watching through a camera in order to send you a clue as you ask for them. Remember they are also watching & listening to everything. It must really be a fun to watch live video because everyone is going crazy in these rooms pulling, pushing, flicking & hollering, like in my moms case…lol
You must use all your strengths to work together. It is a hysterical experience & we all had a blast even though we didn’t make it out of the Museum in time.
We had many suggestions after the game as we all talked about our experience.
We think there should be different skill levels based on age or expertise.
They should also have a package where you can either buy extra time or something so you can go back & conquer the room you didn’t make it out of.
It is a dark room and they gave us 2 broken down flashlights, so make sure you have your cell fully charged so you can use your flashlight. If you have trouble reading small print, bring reading glasses because your gonna need them.
And don’t forget to have fun, it’s really not wether you get out or not it’s all about how you play the game. We played hard & laughed & helped each other & praised each other!
Oh, and we found out after the game that I picked the hardest one & only one percent of the groups make it out of that one.
We can’t wait to go back & try another room.
I really don’t recommend for anyone under 14 years old, it is great for families & friends.
Go check one out.
See if you can escape!

Yes it was a good time. I agree they should publish or tell you before you select a room the level of difficulty and what percent of the people make it
out of the room. Also, we did not know in advance that we should have asked for clues sooner. I guess people want to try to complete the mission with as few clues as possible,
so they do not ask. (like us) If we realized how difficult the room was we would have asked much sooner. They could also score you by the time AND the number of clues you received.
I agree it is a good experience for groups, companies and kids. Let’s try another one soon!
Sounds fun, can’t wait to try it.
I like what you said about being as encouraging as possible with your teammates when you’re in the escape room. My boyfriend wants to take me to one with a group of his friends, but I’ve never done one before. I think if we all get along, we’ll have a better chance of escaping.
I highly recommend them, you will have so much fun but you have to work as a team.
