Can You Survive the Dallas Panic Room? Here are 5 Tips to Help

Can you survive Dallas Panic Room? Here are 5 tips to help.

It is October y’all! In the spirit of all things spooky and frightening, here is a fun activity to do with your friends.

The other day, a few friends and I completed our first escape room experience. We traveled to Irving where the Dallas Panic Room is located and we stepped into an abandoned school room. We had 60 minutes to escape and six opportunities to ask for help. There were no instructions and no starting point for us when we entered the room. Clues, puzzles, and riddles were hidden throughout for us to find, but would we escape?

Sadly, no, but do not panic! Here are my top 5 tips to help you escape.

1. PICK YOUR ROOM WISELY. At Dallas Panic Room, you can currently choose from an abandoned school room, a museum heist, or a zombie apocalypse. Each room has its own challenges and each theme takes you on a different adventure. Pick the room you are most interested in and the room you feel most comfortable in.

2. OBSERVE EVERYTHING. When you first enter the room, do not stand still. Observe everything, move around, look under everything, move things around, and get started. It is hard to know where to begin, but the moment you find a clue, that is when the game begins.

3. TRACK AND WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN. I can not begin to stress how important this step is. You will find all sorts of clues – some you will need and others that are there to confuse you – so make sure you remember where everything was first found. As you begin to find puzzles and riddles, you will need to write down your answers and how you got there for future reference. There will be points throughout the game where one answer will lead to another clue and so forth. Plus, writing down everything will help make sure you do not forget or mess up any of your progress.

4. COMMUNICATE. An escape room experience is all about working together as a team and you cannot do that efficiently without communicating with each other. There will be puzzles you cannot solve without the help of your friends or strangers and vice versa, so communicate. And communicate often!

5. FOLLOW YOUR GUT. Solving puzzles and riddles is not easy, so if you are onto something, do not stop. Make sure you listen to your gut as it may be trying to help you escape. There will be times where you will guess wrong, but do not get frustrated or panic. Remember that you can always lean onto your friends for help.

      I was so terrified when I experience my first escape room. It is a group effort, so do not be scared.
