Traditional escape games take 60 minutes to end: from the time of entering the door to the time of leaving after you’ve accomplished the mission. If your team is highly successful in the escape, as it should be, these games can take an even shorter time.
However, you need to know that some companies may twitch around the traditional games that take 60 minutes to complete to have a lower or higher time limit, say 45 or 90 minutes.
Consider some additional time before getting started
If you are out with colleagues, friends, and family for a weekend escape room outing, you should consider setting some additional time after and even before taking part in the real escape challenge. Give yourselves enough time by arriving early, finding the parking space, and registering your group.
Another reason why you should arrive early is to get ample time to query the staff about a few things, let the staff peruse through the policies and regulations, especially if you are new to the area or you’re entirely new to the idea of escape rooms. That being said, it would be prudent to arrive at the location at least 10 minutes before the starting time.
Time to celebrate (…or time to sulk)
If your team gets out of the escape room successfully and on time, you need to gather outside and celebrate. Hence, you may set aside some time to do that. Some companies can suggest taking a team photo to celebrate or commemorate your success.
Don’t worry if you don’t make it out on time, you may gather outside and take a team photo as well, just to remember the experience and perhaps inspire yourselves to return.
How you prepare for the room escape can determine your success. Prior preparations just before the game time should be considered. A typical escape room game, therefore, can take between 30 minutes to 2 hours to complete successfully.The time you will take to complete the game matters more than the achievement you’ll make, just as expected from any other game.
