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?
It’s been more than a year since the WHO declared Covid-19 as a pandemic, most of us are working from home and it is getting harder and harder to keep ourselves occupied. We admit, it is really not easy when all events are cancelled, cinemas, gyms, museums and an endless list of facilities are closed. It was also extremely hard to close the doors of our escape room. But not everything is lost, there are still things we can do despite the current situation. So we thought of gathering some things to do in Manchester to keep you occupied.
Brain researchers have found decades ago that our right and left hemispheres specialize in different functions. The right hemisphere is responsible for creative thinking and the left is responsible for logical thinking. In an escape game, we need both at the same time, so we work both halves of our brains in order to get out. Let’s see how that works!

Escape games are still very popular, even though it’s been a long time we could actually escape from a real room. The enthusiasm of the players is not surprising: teamwork, shivering, adrenaline splattering, a sense of success - in the imaginary worlds, everything is given that is we miss from our everyday life, especially nowadays. But we asked ourselves, Is there still room for improvement? How can the escape room experience be better? Is it really an indefatigable genre? Most probably the future will be all about virtual escape rooms. Let’s see why!
It is not surprising that parents, whether they are escape room enthusiasts or not, ask themselves if it is okay to involve their children in an escape room experience, or if there are escape rooms for kids. A lot of escape rooms are set in the middle of a crime scene or built around a horror story. Also, some tasks are really challenging and parents may fear the negative feedback of an unsuccessful escape their children may encounter. But there is no need to worry, there are escape rooms that are child-friendly or they are specially made for them!
