What is an Escape Room?

A 60-Minute thrilling game played indoors – no bugs, cool AC.

An Escape Room, also known as a “puzzle room”, “breakout room” or “escape game”, is an immersive reality experience. It is a physical game – no phones, no electronics – in which a team of players enter a room and then attempt to solve a series of puzzles to accomplish the goal of the room. Players are given clues, hints and strategy to complete the game.

From the Washington Post: The format originated in Japan, according to the blog Room Escape Artist, and exploded in popularity across Asia and Europe before making its debut in the United States in 2012. There are now more than 2,200 escape room locations across the country, with themes such as jail breaks, Harry Potter, pirates, zombie apocalypses, Vegas parties and lab experiments gone wrong.
Other Parts of the Experience
  • Team Based: Between 2 & 8 people can go through a room. Teamwork is necessary and it is a great way to get to know somebody.
  • Clear Objective: It is not always the objective to “Escape” the room but the objective should be clear and understandable.
  • The Story: Most of the fun is getting into the story. At Escape Tybee all of our themes are based on something that really happened on Tybee Island.
  • Types of Puzzles: You may have to find a hidden item; you may have to use a cipher to decode a message; you may have to do pattern matching and recognition; there may be a little math. Generally there isn’t any extreme logical thinking – really, you just need creativity and a little “thinking outside of the box.”
  • Puzzles in Parallel: Some puzzles have a variety of elements so it would make sense for the team to break up into little groups and solve bits of the puzzle at the same time.
  • Time Limit: At Escape Tybee you get 60 minutes to solve your puzzle.

Good luck.

About Us

Escape Tybee is a family operation. We fell in love with escape rooms during the summer of 2017
and we wanted to bring that experience to Tybee Island. We opened our first room in June of 2018 and opened our second room in mid-July of 2018.

Our rooms are now closed.

We are now considering Mystery / Adventure walking tours.  Let us know what you think!
