There have been a lot of teams visiting us in recent years and we like to have a chat with players before and after the game. We are very pleased to see that the escape rooms of Code to Exit are fantastic experiences for players who are coming with fears, but let us also see what are the things most people are afraid of, especially before their very first game!
Students aren’t the only ones who have been longing for this year’s half term. We have a couple of rough months behind us and both children and parents are excited about the fact that now children will have some free time that allows them to spend time with their families. What is even better is that everything is slowly but steadily reopening, giving more space and ideas for a great family afternoon apart from board games and watching a film together at home. We couldn’t miss the opportunity to propose to you some activities (of course, including Manchester escape rooms) that you can do together during the half term as a family.
The history of cryptography is almost as old as the invention of writing. As written messages began to spread, there was an almost immediate need for them not to be understood by uninitiated eyes. The methods and codes used in the past are now easy to crack: the simplest is the letter shift method, or Caesar code. It looks like we’re pushing the letters of the ABC somewhere further away. For example, the title of this article would be “Votpmwfe nztufsjpvt nfttbhft”. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
You may probably know already, but if you don’t, we are happy to tell you that based on the reopening roadmap we are open again! Finally, the time has come for us not only to host groups of friends and families who are retraining themselves after a long period out of escape rooms, but also to host colleagues for an amazing and fun corporate team building program. All this in our escape room Manchester has been waiting for!
Ever since we have been on this planet we have been looking for the secret of eternal youth. There hasn’t been any solution to look like a teenager again, however, researchers claim that riddles can rejuvenate the brain for up to 10 years.
As you probably already know, based on the reopening roadmap announced by the government, your favourite escape room from Manchester is opening its gates again! However, we wanted to clarify a couple of things so everyone can be sure that the Code to Exit headquarter is a safe environment and anyone can enjoy escaping without worrying about getting the virus. So let’s see how we reopen our rooms, what can you expect and what we pay special attention to!
Dr. Scott Nicholson’s name may be familiar from Escape Room World Championships. He was the one who designed the final escape room. It is no coincidence that he has been asked to give some insights on personas needed for a successful escape game, as he studies and develops games and escape rooms with scientific thoroughness - all of which he also teaches at university. Professor of Game Design and Development - this is his exact title of Wilfrid Laurier University. So, if someone is, he knows escape games. That’s why we wanted to give you some of his insights about what types of players are needed in an adventure like this.
Carnegie Mellon University conducted an analysis of team leadership, collaboration, and diversity by interviewing escape room participants. Among other things, it turned out that corporate teams are less successful, they have room for development when it comes to team building!
Hearing the word escape room reminds many of danger and claustrophobic confinement. Although it’s a really meaningful pastime, and in most cases not at all scary. You immerse yourself in the game forgetting everyday problems, and you can focus on the present with the help of the puzzles inside. But how will you and your partner be able to thrive in an escape room date?
