What It's Like To Run An Escape Room

Most Escape Rooms are basically a haunt, team building exercise and series of puzzles rolled into one interactive experience, a fun where a group of strangers meet up to solve the case and beat the clock.

The themes often involve murder, the puzzles often require escapees to utilize their abstract yet logical problem solving skills, and the escapees are usually too dumb or impatient to solve the puzzle in time.

Running an Escape Room is clearly a tough gig, since hosts have to deal with brutes who think they can solve the puzzle by breaking stuff or worse- those who put themselves at risk by making bad decisions.

So what do Nate Martin, co-founder of Puzzle Break, and Cody Civiero of SmartyPantz do to keep the Escape Room experience alive?

They make sure people don't trash the room or have sex in it, keep an eye on the competition, and stop guests who think they can solve the puzzle by drinking fluid from a jar that was glued to the shelf.
