Are you looking for something challenging and fun to do this weekend? How does an escape room in Calgary sound to you? Well, if that piques your interest, you should give it a go! 

But you shouldn’t just go to any escape room. You have to go a great escape room; one that is both fun and challenging, and also puts you in a completely different world. This is what makes a great escape room in Calgary.

5 Things That Make A Great Escape Room In Calgary 

  • Narrow storytelling within the room
    Not only do you want to be lost in the room, but you also want to be engulfed in the storytelling. Being part of the ‘world’ that the room creates is fantastic, but you also want to be lost within the story of that world. It adds another dimension to the room and makes you feel engrossed in it. Storytelling is a big part of what makes an escape room great. 
  • The Decor Of The Room
    The more realistic and in-depth the room looks, the better off it will be for the overall experience. Cheap-looking sets and rooms come off as a fake and does not bode well for visitors. The more creative and purposeful the decor of the room, the more engaging it will be for users.  
  • A Good Mix Of Puzzles
    You don’t want to do the same puzzles over and over again. It is tedious and uninspiring. You want to find you and your team sorting out a mix of different puzzles that are new and challenging each time. A diverse array of problems makes your escape room all that more exciting.

  • Invites Teamwork
    Escape rooms are great as team building activities in Calgary. So there is even more of an emphasis on ensuring that the escape room invites teamwork. You don’t want one person to do sort out all the puzzles; you want the whole team being engaged to solve the puzzle. 
  • Challenging, Yet Accomplishable
    There is challenging, and there is ‘challenging’. While some Calgary escape rooms are harder than others, you have to have a chance on accomplishing them. People don’t want to continually fail time and time again when it comes to escape rooms. The escape room has to be a delicate balance of challenging yet achievable.

Welcome to our new series, where we look at the intricacies of designing an escape room from start to finish. Since we create all our escape rooms in house at Arcadia Adventures Escape Room, we’ve learned quite a few tricks along the way and pitfalls to avoid. We hope that these guides will be useful to other aspiring designers or those interested in the behind the scenes of Escape Rooms.

For this first article in the series, we will start with the seed of all escape rooms: Theme. A theme is the overriding designing principle that everything else in the pre-production process will revolve around, including puzzles, interior design, difficulty, prop build, electronic work, etc. It is usually summarized in a single sentence that begins with “Wouldn’t it be cool…?”

“Wouldn’t it be cool if you could steal an artifact from a museum?”  Wouldn’t it be cool to have a race between a horde of zombies and desperate scientists?” ” Wouldn’t it be cool to escape a dungeon filled with magical fairy-tales?”

The theme is typically the first thing designers imagine; however, it is fully extracting the best gameplay and potential that is difficult. From our experience, here are our Do’s and Dont’s when it comes to choosing a Theme:


The worst thing you can do with an idea is to take the surface layer of a concept and start production right away. Take some time to explore the idea and how you can make it interesting. Suppose your idea is a bank heist. You could design a vault and give players 60 minutes to escape. But what if you approached it from another angle? Players are cops and must find a way into a vault within 60 minutes before the thieves escape. What possibility does that open up? How do the puzzles change? Is this a fresh take or a gimmick? At this stage, look for different angles and get your creative juices flowing. Don’t be satisfied with genre clichés.


That being said, do research your theme so you get a better concept of the possibility of your idea. Look for pictures online that match the feeling and design you want your room to have. Watch movies, read books, play video games based on your theme and look for things you can use for your own design. In the example of the heist room, one movie that comes to mind is Ocean’s Eleven. As they plan and pull off the elements of the heist, could you make a puzzle out of each part? What about having players crawl through a vent to get to a secret door? Is the design of the casino what you are looking for or do you want something closer to an actual vault like Inside Man? Research, research, research.


I’ve been to countless rooms where the atmosphere is perfect, the lighting is spot on and the music sets the mood. We’re ready to tackle the challenge and the puzzles we come across have nothing to do with the theme. In fact, they could easily be transported to another room and nothing would change. Why go through all the work designing a room to look and feel great but the actual gameplay feels tacked on. Our trick is to take an element of our theme and see if we can create a puzzle out of it, not vice versa. For the heist example, could we make a puzzle out of the players gathering valuables from the vault? Maybe some are fake and they have to figure out which ones are correct? Maybe they need to divide the loot correctly into the right bags. Take a concept and see if you can squeeze gameplay out of it. If you can do this with every puzzle in your room, you will have successfully integrated gameplay and theme in your escape room.


Even the best ideas can become stagnant once researched and explored. Many times we’ve come up with a theme that we were sure was going to be our next room, only to walk back to the drawing board when we fully explored the concept. The good news is that not much time is lost in this early stage. The second good news is when faced with a handful of decent but not great ideas, smash them together and see what happens. Maybe a bank heist feels too boring. What if you combine it with an equally boring outer space theme. A bank heist in space? That might be interesting, having the players board a cargo vessel, each with a role to get past the ships security systems. But of course, there’s an AI watching so they would have to disable that and…the possibilities are endless.

These are just some tips to help in this most crucial process. While puzzle design, set dressing, gameplay flow can offer difficult challenges, there’s nothing worse than going through that knowing the theme just isn’t clicking for you. Take your time at the start. Nail down the concept and relax. At this stage, everything can be easily be changed if it doesn’t work. When your group stumbles upon that theme that they just can’t stop talking about, you’ll know you have a winner.

Have fun!

The tricky thing about finding fun activities the whole family can enjoy is that the difference in ages, life experiences, and definitions of what’s “cool” make for very different tastes! What a 10 year old enjoys will usually be pretty different to what a 17 year old likes, and that will be different from what a 21 year old enjoys… Talk about a tall order. But there is one activity that is good, challenging fun for all ages: Puzzles! (And, as such, puzzle rooms). Playing an escape room offers families a chance to be present with one another, communicate constructively, and work together. Depending on the age range of the players, there are a few factors that should be considered when you’re deciding on the right escape room adventure for your family.

Puzzle Rooms with Kids

Being immersed in the story is one of the best ways for your kids to enjoy the experience, have fun, and get into character! Are you detectives, wizards, or thieves? Play up the theme of the room, create your own stories and uncover mysteries together. We’ve had families show up in full costume with their kids and everyone loved it – especially the adults! There are many different types of puzzles for children to play and enjoy, each with their own unique design. There are some escape puzzles that rely on the sense of touch, others that require players to find missing pieces or investigate and search the room. (We recently wrote a blog post on the types of escape room puzzles and designs, so feel free to check it out to learn more.) The key is to allow your kids to try things first. Let them take the lead in searching for clues, holding the flashlight, or opening key locks. If they’re fairly young then you’ll probably be assisting them with most of the puzzles, so give them every opportunity to be involved!

Escape Rooms with Teens

Ah yes, teenagers… Undoubtedly some of the quirkiest and most out-of-the-box thinking players out there! Boy Waving hand with Open Mouth What makes a great escape room for teenagers? Here’s a clue: It’s an escape room that allows them to play alongside their family while at the same time providing them with opportunities to challenge themselves and showcase their smarts. Most escape adventures do not involve phones or outside interference; players are asked to lock away their phones for the duration of the game. For teens in particular, this helps everyone to be present and engaged with the room and the entire family. When first entering the room, give your teens and tweens the time and space to discover the room and its puzzles. Most escape rooms have hidden puzzle elements that are fun and exciting to find, so have them try some puzzles on their own. Doing this encourages them to use their imagination and creativity to find their own solutions, which will help them have the best experience possible.

Parenting in an Escape Rooms

To make your experience truly enjoyable, it’s important to think about what you want to get out of this room. When booking your next family escape room experience, think whether you’re picking the right theme for your child… Things to consider include:

  • Are they jittery or easily distracted?
  • Are they scared of the dark?
  • Are they able to read and write yet?

Also check if there are any age restrictions for the room you’re looking to book. Why? Because the fact is that not all rooms are designed to be played by everyone. Child Hiding his FaceGenerally, there are tough puzzles, horror/scary elements, and adult themes that may not be advertised for younger players. If you’re unsure, call the escape facility ahead of time and double check with them. It’s fun to choose a room together, so try to get the whole family’s input when picking a theme and difficulty level. You can also think about asking to make the room private or just buying out the room. We often recommend this because, when it comes to playing with families, it can be difficult for strangers to have the same level of enjoyment when tackling a puzzle room with a family that’s also playing it at the same time. By booking a private room, you can ensure your family will be playing in a more controlled environment where you don’t need to worry about frustrated strangers.

Some Final Notes on Escaping the Room as a Family

The family that plays together stays together! This is especially true with escape rooms because communication is key. Remember to talk through the room, work together to stay organized, and switch up puzzles if you’re stuck… Speaking of stuck, if your group is having trouble getting through a puzzle or two then most escape rooms are happy to provide hints and direction to help you get back on track. Girl Looking at the Images Escape rooms are meant to be immersive and entertaining. The most important thing to remember is to enjoy the experience and not take it too seriously. At the end of the day, the memories and time you spent together are incredibly valuable – so make the most out of your escape!

We Want You & Your Family to Have Fun

Here at Arcadia Adventures Escape Room, we want your family to have the best possible experience. Remember to listen to guidelines and instructions to ensure a safe and fun time. When in the room, it’s best to keep an eye on your kids and be respectful. Believe us when we say that it’s easy to be distracted once inside, so make sure your kids know to not play too rough or damage any props or items. While small accidents will inevitably happen, keep in mind there are cameras and if the gamemaster sees disrespectful or destructive behavior you may be asked to leave. Playing with your family – especially when there are younger family members playing – means you may not be as fast and efficient as you would like. Keep in mind this is a bonding experience for everyone, try and stay calm and guide them through the room. Another great thing about playing an escape room with family is that it’s an excellent time to teach your kids good, analytical problem solving skills. Escape rooms are a great way to teach new skills and ways of thinking, so take this time to impart your wisdom!

If you’ve ever participated in an escape room adventure, you probably have an idea of the attention to detail and planning that goes into designing a quality locked room experience!

Creating a (good) escape room puzzle is an art and a science. And while no two escape rooms will be the exact same, there is a unique formula that goes into crafting an immersive escape puzzle.

In this post, we’re exploring a few different types of puzzles that can add some spicy variety to a puzzle room’s play-through.

Some Spice to Make an Escape Room Nice…

Kids Surprised while looking in BoxWe’ll share an industry secret with you: When designing an escape room, the key to crafting a great escape experience is in entertaining your players while getting them to flex their puzzle solving muscles.

While the examples we’re using below are generic, a great escape room will feature all these types of escape puzzles while matching the theme and atmosphere of the room itself.

The Tactile Puzzle:

AAny tactile element of an escape room puzzle involves physically manipulating pieces or placing objects in the correct place.

Tip: Tactile puzzles really should be the bread and butter of your escape room.

This is largely because the greatest draw of a real life escape room (compared to an online escape game, for example) is the ability to explore and interact with the physical space.

Players want to pick up items, use tools, move around and interact with the room. As such, tactile puzzles should be front-and-center. (Bonus points if your puzzle requires the use of two or more players to solve!)

A standard example of a traditional tactile puzzle would be a jigsaw puzzle.

The Logic Puzzle:

Given a set of defined rules, players are asked to solve a sequence or put items in the correct order.

Logic puzzles are great for “meta puzzles” (ie. puzzles that require solutions from multiple other puzzles to solve). These puzzles are fun, but must be thoroughly tested to ensure the logic holds up and shortcuts cannot be taken with just a few answers!

A classic example would be Einstein’s Five Houses Riddle.

The Math Puzzle:

Can be as simple as counting and adding the correct number of items in a room to solving for x in an equation.

Mathematical puzzles are the easiest puzzles to design and the hardest to make enjoyable.

While solving 3 + x = 6 is indeed a puzzle, it is too reminiscent of after school exercises and classes.

Our experience has taught us that the best way to incorporate a math puzzle is to combine it with another type. Requiring players to solve [# of Statues] + [# of Lamps] = Lock Combination forces players to explore the room and interact in a tactile way.

While the final puzzle is mathematical in nature, the players enjoy the experience much more!

The Dexterity Puzzle:

Boy Opening a Treasure Box

This type of puzzle challenges players by putting items out of reach, which requires patience or physical skill.

An example of this would be placing a key out of reach that must be grabbed by a long pole or balancing objects through a maze.

A dexterity puzzle is an off-shoot of tactile puzzles in that players are not only interacting with an object, but must show skill with said object to succeed.

In the example given, reaching a key with a pole is not actually a “puzzle”. However, finding pieces of a pole and then realizing one needs to assemble it to reach the key is.

You’ll want to be careful with dexterity puzzles – you don’t want to allow too much chance of failure on the part of the player! Nothing stops the flow of an escape room more than having the host resetting the puzzle because a key accidentally dropped out of reach!

The Cryptic/Translation Puzzle:

Girls Found a Key in Sand

With a cryptic/translation puzzle, players are given an indecipherable set of symbols with no instructions on how to translate them.

As a result, it is up to the player to find clues and patterns in the symbols to translate or make sense of the puzzle.

Tip: This type of puzzle is good if you want to incorporate backtracking in your rooms.

Having a strange set of symbols at the start and then providing a codex later on allows a designer to extend the “playspace” of their rooms. Cryptic/Translation puzzles are great, but care must be taken to ensure the puzzles are not so cryptic that players do not solve them.

A common type of cryptic puzzle would be a rebus puzzle.


Can be a question or statement with a hidden meaning, often with a nice rhythmic prose.

For example, “A box without hinges, key, or lid, yet golden treasure inside is hid.” Answer: An Egg.

Riddles are amazing puzzles, but you should take care to ensure they are not so difficult that players do not solve them. But with any good escape room, no outside information should be required; the answer to your riddle should be located somewhere in the room to that players can stumble upon it and put two and two together.

This may seem like giving away the answer, but not if the answer is cleverly disguised as part of the decor/theme!

For example, in the above riddle, placing an egg in the middle of a zombie-themed escape room would obviously stand out. Placing an egg on the plate of a restaurant themed escape room is another story.

And that’s that! However, we’ll end with one final tip: Remember that puzzles should not be arbitrarily stuck onto a room like a weird appendage. The best rooms have puzzles that are developed from the theme outward, not forced in because “we need a math puzzle to balance things out.”

Now it’s a matter of finding the best balance that works for you… So good luck and happy designing!

In our last blog post, we offered some great tips & tricks to help new escape room adventurers (and those who might be a bit rusty) make their next experience a great escape.

In this post, we’re offering some helpful hints for the more “seasoned” escape room artists – those who have enjoyed solving a locked room puzzle or two, but who yearn to delve deeper into the mystery and get the most out of their puzzle room journey.

To these inquisitive and adventurous souls, it is for you that we write this post!

With great (escape room) knowledge comes great power.

In this case, the great power we’re referring to is the power to influence and responsibly guide your fellow escape adventurers on their own paths to puzzle room prowess. We like to call these locked room veterans “enlightened escapers”.

If you’re a seasoned escape room artist who is using the following tips & tricks to improve your own experience then we strongly urge you to remember that your fellow escape adventurers may not be at your level.

As such, if you don’t respect their own escape room journeys then you risk 2 terrible things:

1. Ruining it for them by being “that guy”… As in, being “that guy” who knew more about escape room puzzles than anyone else there and got impatient when it took his fellow escapists a while to figure stuff out. That guy sucks. Don’t be that guy.

Very Angry Young Man

2. Ruining it for yourself.

However, if you consciously make a point of using your knowledge for good – ie. to enhance your own enjoyment of the escape room experience while respectfully helping others with theirs – then we know that what follows will help you take your escape room journey to the next level!

1. Swap Puzzles

Trust us – we fully understand how frustrating getting stuck on a puzzle can be. Sometimes you just can’t seem to wrap your head around how the puzzle works. As a result, you end up being more frustrated with it than anything else.

We totally get it, but we hate to see it.

Instead of wasting precious time on a puzzle that makes no sense to you, it’s in everyone’s best interest to swap the puzzle with someone else. This way, you can get a fresh set of eyes on it.

A new perspective on a puzzle can easily bring a new approach to solving it, so let it go and leave that ego at the door! Doing so will most certainly help ensure you have a way better frame of mind and more fun time.

2. Work Together

Arcadia Adventures Escape Room Dream Team

Teamwork makes the dream work, and this is a dream team game!

Work with your team to solve the puzzles. Seriously. The most counter-productive thing you can do it to take a puzzle and quietly sit in a corner trying to solve it alone – this will lead to a way less fun experience for absolutely everyone involved.

If you don’t book a private room for a group of familiar people then random players may join you. So if you happen to be playing with random players then try your very best to include them in your processes and thought strategy.

(Life Pro Tip: Almost all escape rooms allow for private bookings, but if you happen to be in an escape room with random players then just remind yourself that everyone’s there for the same reason – to have fun!)

T3. Leave Pride at the Door and Ask for Hints

Even enlightened escapers really, truly should not be worried about asking for hints! After all, nobody can expect you to be an escape room savant or psychic.

We mention this here because, in our years of experience hosting escape room games, we’ve noticed that the people who don’t like asking for hints are frequently veteran escape room players. But that’s usually just because they aim for the top of leader boards!

A good rule of thumb is that if you’re stuck on a puzzle for 10 minutes without any new ideas or theories for solving it, it’s best to just hit the hint button for help.

4. Think Outside the (Puzzle) Box

Man Thinking while Sitting on Floor

Not all puzzles are cut and dry (nor should they be!) Sometimes you will need to go outside of the puzzle’s constraints to solve it – mentally and physically.

In fact, we’ll go so far as to say that this should generally be your “go-to” way of thinking if the puzzle makes no sense on its own. If you cannot solve a puzzle with the given items in a box then it likely means that there is more to the puzzle than meets the eye.

And, like many other things in life, it can be truly difficult to remove yourself to the point of objectivity when you get too involved in a conundrum!

Escape rooms offer puzzle solvers a unique opportunity to uncover the secrets within both the room and themselves (deep, we know – but also true). So just remember: A good escape room holds everything you need to solve the puzzle, so be sure to think outside the box while keeping it inside the room.

Top Tips for First Time Escape (Room) Artists

Here at Arcadia Adventures Escape Room, we get a lot of people who have never experienced an escape room adventure before. We absolutely love these folks! Not only do they give us a chance to create new escape room fans; they also let us vicariously enjoy the thrill of experiencing an escape room adventure for the first time, all over again!

Most of these fresh escape room adventurers are 100% eager to dive right in after hearing from friends, family, coworkers, and/or online reviews how much fun an escape room puzzle can be.

Two Men Smoking Pipe

A few ambitious escapers have even done a bit of research before hand, hoping to gain a more competitive edge right off the bat… But they soon learn that finding truly helpful escape room tips & tricks online is tough. It can be like trekking through a dense jungle where each tangled vine offers a webpage with different info – info that sometimes conflicts with other stuff you’ve just read elsewhere!

The Key to Making Your Next Escape a Great Escape:

Girl Looking at One Golden KeyFor escape room adventurers, hunting down clues and deciphering them on the spot is a huge part of the thrill – it’s like being the star of your very own detective story. But we’ve seen times where an escape room adventurer’s first time has been unfairly dampened by bad advice or misleading tips, and it’s a sad thing for us to see.

We always want our escape adventurers to have the very best Calgary escape room experience possible, whether you’re a first time adventurer or seasoned escape room veteran!

It’s with this in mind that we decided to write this blog post, because we want to give you the real low-down on how to truly maximize your escape room fun.

So, without further ado, here’s our Top 7 Tips for having the very best escape room experience Calgary (or anywhere else) can offer!

1. Listen to the Rules.

Group Meeting on Table

This is without a doubt one of the biggest tips we can offer! It should be obvious for any escape room adventurer, new or returning, but definitely we see a fair share of folks who either don’t really listen or too easily forget what they just heard.

Know that there are some key rules to take special note of when you first play a puzzle room, most of them having to do with two hugely important things:

  • Optimizing your escape strategy
  • Not damaging the room (after all, a damaged room is no fun for anyone!)

A prime example of why you should listen closely to the rules is in how the rooms use different locks and mechanisms. When you think about it, this makes sense – using the same locking mechanism for every room would really take away from the overall challenge of a “locked” room experience!

But some new adventurers don’t yet get this and haven’t listened closely enough to the rules. These adventurers then end up confused and overly frustrated when a lock works differently to another lock they just successfully opened. In their frustration, they may accidentally break a “key” piece of the “locked” room (pun fully intended).

Ultimately, it’s crucial to listen closely so that you’ll know how best to work with the unique room from which you’re trying to escape.

2. Read Everything!

Book and a Key Shining

This is a pretty straight-forward tip, but you’d be shocked how many players ask about hints for puzzles that are easily solved by just reading something in the room!

In fact, for those questions we usually just tell the player to read a note and they will generally figure out the puzzle after that… And, low and behold, they do.

That said, we totally understand how easy it is to get caught up in the excitement of trying to quickly decipher all the puzzle clues – especially when it’s your first time in an escape room. But this is one of those times where it really does pay off to take a step back and really look closely at all the details of your surroundings.

3. Search Everything!

Boy Opening a Treasure Box

Make sure you search under, over, around, and inside stuff! After all, how boring would it be if the clues were always in the same spots? (Answer: Pretty darn boring.)

Loads of hints are hidden in seemingly random hiding places – places that are so simple that you’d think there is no way we would hide something there… Or would we? (Hint: We totally would.)

Just remember to search within the rules that the escape room operators outlined to you. Rules like there’s nothing in ceiling tiles, nothing behind bolted down items, etc.

4. Split Up.

Depending on the room, your team will benefit from splitting up and searching/solving the escape room’s individual puzzles. Trust us on this one – separately solving the individual clues works way better than clumping together and collectively solving one thing at a time.

This is usually only a helpful tip if the room is a non-linear room (i.e. rooms that have multiple puzzle paths instead of one defined path), but we’ve seen it often enough that it’s worth mentioning!

5. Talk Out Loud

Man Speaking and Woman Listening

This is a group event (meaning you are usually with more than 1 player), so talking out loud lets other players know:

  • What you’re doing
  • How you’re doing it
  • Maybe even help you with a puzzle, if you’re having trouble

After all, a team that communicates effectively usually finishes faster. Sometimes other players might also have some information about the puzzle that you may have glossed over. Not to mentionthat talking out loud helps solve puzzles that use clever word play.

6. Choose the Room Difficulty for YOU

Most escape room facilities will be fully upfront about the difficulty of each of their rooms, both on their website and when you go there.

It’s a very wise move to read up on each room so you can choose the most appropriate level for your team.

For beginners, it’s best not to try escaping the hardest room. This may sound like advice from Capt. Obvious, but you’d be amazed how many people think they’re a natural Sherlock Holmes!

It’s almost always better to try out an easier room with a better escape rate first. Harder rooms are usually designed with the assumption that adventurers have played many escape rooms before. Room designers therefore create puzzles which are meant to stump even the most veteran escaper.

Three Posters of Escape Rooms

If, after you have read up on the rooms and are still unsure of which room you should choose, you can always call the facility. They’ll be able to tell you what room would be best suited for your specific team.

7. Have Fun

Arcadia Adventures Escape Room Dream Team

We’ve saved the most important tip for last here, but it really is a no-brainer: Escape rooms are meant to be fun!

The #1 most important thing you need to do it to remember to enjoy yourself. Have fun solving the puzzles with family and friends! Don’t get upset if/when you can’t solve a problem or if you don’t succeed in escaping a room. After all, some rooms are truly meant to be hard and a lot of people might not make it out of those rooms… And that is A-OK!

In the end, it is all about the experience itself, as well as the time spent with friends and family, that make escape rooms so much fun!
