We’ve all been there at some point or another. You’ve just been informed of this crazy and wacky new experience taking a storm across the world. You’re about to play but suddenly you’re overcome with all these emotions.
VisitVault looks at these stages that all first time players can relate too. Here we go…
What indeed! Here you are, going about your business, enjoying your everyday life until that recommendation hits you one day. A friend turns to you and says the words “We should play an Escape game together!!!”
What on Earth is your friend going on about? You are not quite sure whether your friend is out of it or genuinely suggesting something fun to do.
You’ve just endured a gruelling 10 minutes of your life listening to what sounds like the most scary and confusing experience you’ve ever heard of. This is most probably because people don’t know how to explain how an Escape game works well enough without you immediately thinking the worse. Like why would I want to be locked in a room for 60 minutes. I do not want to pay for the privilege of being a part of a remake of the Saw movies.
You’ve had another moment to calm down and listen to your friend explain the nature of the game again. This time having it explained properly. You begin to feel intrigued. If your friend loves it so much then what am I missing out on?! You start to feel swayed… Ok let’s do this!
Your friend went ahead and booked a last minute room and you’re heading over there as we speak.
OMG, we are actually doing this!!
You feel the rush and euphoria. The excitement is taking over you! The mixed emotions are getting too much!
You are acting excited but deep down you still have no idea what is going on.
So you’ve arrived and been briefed by your Game Host. You know everything you need to do but a rush of panic sweeps over you. What have you agreed to do? Is it too late to exit?
From freezing in terror to stalling the briefing to take that last safety wee you know it’s too late to back down. You’ve already taken note of every available exit sign preparing yourself. You’ve asked your Game Host more questions on emergency exits than the gameplay but it’s too late you’re heading in. RIGHT. NOW!
The 60 minutes are up and you’re out. Guess what? YOU SURVIVED!
You don’t care whether you won or lost but you just gained a whole level of trust in your friend!
The hour flashed so fast you have no idea what happened. You’re back to the same first feeling. Did you enjoy it? What was that all about?
Who knows but let’s get a team picture whilst I process all this!
You’ve had a little while to process what you’ve just experienced. Your endorphins have slowly started to calm then you finally get what it was all about. The Buzz hits. You know you’ve just experienced something magical. When can you do it again? Right now?!!
You my friend have just got the Buzz! It won’t go away for a while. You’ll find yourself wanting to accomplish more and more games. You’ve got the Buzz and you ain’t ever letting it go.
Thank you for taking the time to read this fun and playful article. We hope you’ve enjoyed it.

We had a blast! So close to beating the record! Definitely doing it again sometime!
Challenging but a lot of fun. Would love to do this again.
This was so much fun and staff was great! Go try it!!
It was a great experience for all of us.. Something different and unique that people can do in Sioux Falls.
Such a fun and exciting time! Dylan did an excellent job in making the experience worthwhile!
So much fun - Dylan did a great job making it a full experience. We'll for sure be back!
This was one of the best as well one of the most unique days I've had in Sioux Falls it's brilliant!
Excellent facilities, easy to book and work with, and definitely challenging. This was way better than I even anticipated. Well done.
Had a great time escaping the Bank Heist! Had to use clues to get out, but we can't wait to try another room soon!
Great experience and amazing concept. I've never experienced anything like this and definitely WILL go again. I had a lot of fun trying to complete the bank heist... Would have escaped if I didn't mistake the 6 for a 9....
We had a great time and they went above and beyond to customize our Bank Heist for a co-worker who was leaving us! Definitely recommend Escape 605 for a special occasion and looking forward to checking out the next room!
We had such a great time. Robbing banks with my kids might not be something a parent should be doing. Ha! But we sure had fun working as a team to figure things out. Great fun!
Thanks for the great time! Our varsity boys basketball team had a lot of fun. Was a unique way to do some team building. Highly recommend this experience!
This is a great time for everybody. We decided to make a stop at Escape 605 during our bachelor party, and all the guys had a lot of fun. I would recommend this to any group of friends, family members,...
We just did this for my sisters birthday and had no idea what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised! It was an awesome time!! We can't wait to go back and do the other room!! So much fun and...
Highly recommend!!!! Took 6 - 6th graders and it was fun to see how they group problem solve! Made it out with 3 minutes to spare. Aunt Edna's Condo. They loved it!!!!
Absolutely brilliant!! Did this with friends and had a blast!!
We just did this with a group of friends and we LOVED it! If you love puzzles, this is for you!!
This activity was so much fun!! We had a great time and got our adrenaline pumping! Definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to solve clues and have a great time with friends and family!
My daughter came up with the idea to try this for her Mom's birthday. As a family, we tried it. It was fun and they did a nice job making it a special birthday for her.
My girlfriend and one of my best friends heard about these live escape rooms on the radio and we weren't sure about them at first because we hadn't done anything like them before and the admission was a tad steep...
I did the escape room as a birthday celebration for my mom, with 3 of her friends and my brother also in attendance. This was super fun! Everyone enjoyed it, and we were able to escape Aunt Edna's Condo with...
Such a fun experience! Definitely worth checking out!
It was awesome. We did this as a team builder exercise and had a great time. Well done!
HAD an awesome time testing the rooms and I am looking forward to getting work with all the great people that will come through escape!
We thought it was a great team building activity! Can't wait to try to another room!
What a great team building experience I highly recommended any group or business to try it.
Was able to experience one of the escape rooms and had a great time doing so. Great team building experience!
Had a great time solving the puzzles in one of the rooms tonight. I will definitely be back to try another!!
So much fun. What a great way to spend an anniversary with my lady. My brain got a work out. The staff was so helpful. Thanks Escape 605!!!
We had so much fun in Aunt Edna's condo! We had no idea what to expect which was part of the fun. First of all, NO, it is not scary. I think when people hear that you are "locked in"...
We loved it! Such an exciting experience and tons of fun! Definitely will recommend to friends and family. We will return again soon
What a great night! I highly recommend the rooms! So much down to the wire nail biting suspense! Who needs dinner and a movie?! This is your best night out!
This place is super fun. It's a puzzle of wits to find clues to ultimately escape the real life scenario you are trapped in. Fast paced puzzle solving action!!
Super fun and challenging experience. Went through the Bank Heist with a wide range of ages and we all had a blast! Cannot wait to try the other ones.
