The escape room of Escape Hour have become very popular online and offline, and have become the top rated escape rooms in Edmonton and Calgary within a few years. Many people are interested in playing the escape games, since they give the chance to become part of their own reality show. However, they would like to find out how easy or difficult it is to play the escape games, especially if they are playing the games for the first time. They would also like to know the rules for the escape game, so that they can prepare themselves accordingly, when they visit the escape room.
The basic rule of the escape game is that the team will have to search the escape room to find clues, solve puzzles, and collect information to exit the locker room within a period of sixty minutes. Typically any team which is booking a quest room is asked to reach the escape room venue, at least fifteen minutes before the scheduled start of the game. This will give the team members the opportunity to meet the game master who is the host for the event. The game master will also explain the rules of the game to the team members, who can ask for clarifications if they wish. Usually the escape game will start at the scheduled time.
To maintain the mystery of the escape room, usually phones and cameras are not allowed inside the escape room. There are other items which are also not allowed inside the room which the game master will specify. Since most of the players will have a bag and winter clothes, they are given a locker where they can keep all their belongings for the duration of the game. After they finish the game, the players in the team can take a group photo of the team. To remind them of the escape game, they can be photographed with the accessories and props related to the game. Escape Hour has shared the photos of many teams on their Instagram account.
Each team should be aware that the game master is closely monitoring them using the CCTV cameras to make the game an enjoyable experience. He also ensures that the team members are complying with the rules of the game. In case, the team does not comply, they may get disqualified. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, additional rules have been implemented. While Escape Hour is disinfecting each room after the escape game for safety purposes, all players should wear masks at Escape Hour. They should also maintain the social distancing norms .
