It is a bit overwhelming at first because you don’t know where to start. I frantically began searching around the room for anything that could give me anything. Before I knew it, five minutes went by and my anxiety spiked. To a normal person, five minutes doesn’t seem like long, but to me, it seemed like I had wasted so much time. I was in my own head trying to solve this, but that’s the thing… escape rooms are not an individual endeavor; they are a complete team effort.
