Different types of puzzles in escape rooms

As a professional puzzle-builders we decided to write a post regarding escape room puzzles. 

Main goal for escape room players is to solve puzzles in order to "escape" within a set time limit. 

These puzzles come in many different varieties, each designed to test players' skills and intelligence in unique ways. 

Here are some of the most common types of puzzles in escape rooms:

1. Logic puzzles. Logic puzzles require participants to use deductive reasoning and critical thinking skills to solve. These can include tasks such as figuring out the correct order of a series of events, solving math problems, or deciphering codes and ciphers. We can also call them intangible puzzles. 

2. Physical puzzles. Physical puzzles require participants to manipulate objects or use their bodies in a specific way in order to solve a puzzle. This can include tasks such as finding hidden objects, moving objects to reveal hidden clues, or physically interacting with elements in the room to unlock a door or solve a riddle. 

2.1. Physical puzzles in escape rooms with electronics may involve devices such as sensors, lights, sound effects, or digital displays that provide hints or require input to progress through the game. These puzzles often add an interactive and high-tech element to the room, making the 

experience more immersive and engaging for players.

2.2. Physical puzzles in escape rooms without electronics rely solely on mechanical components, props, and physical interactions to solve. These puzzles may include tasks such as assembling objects, finding hidden compartments, deciphering codes, or unlocking safes using physical tools and manipulation.

3. Observation puzzles. Observation puzzles require participants to carefully observe their surroundings in order to find clues or solve a puzzle. This can include tasks such as searching for hidden objects, noticing patterns or symbols in the room, or decoding subtle hints that are hidden in plain sight.

4. Word puzzles. Word puzzles require participants to use their language and vocabulary skills in order to solve a puzzle. This can include tasks such as unscrambling letters to form words, solving riddles or puns, or figuring out the meaning of a cryptic message. 

5. Teamwork puzzles. Teamwork puzzles require participants to work together in order to solve a puzzle. This can include tasks such as coordinating actions in a specific order, communicating effectively to share important information, or dividing up tasks based on each player's strengths. This type of puzzles are mostly combination of physical, logic and observation puzzles

Better to use mentioned puzzles in normal proportion. Our puzzles are mostly in categories: 

  • physical puzzles with electronics

  • physical puzzles without electronics

I think, that you know where you can find our puzzles :)

All the best,
