Man solving a puzzle

The Problem Solver/Puzzle Person

The problem solver will be the thinker in the group. They are also the clue finder and the strategist. They are usually the person who looks at a problem and sees it differently than others. This person is vital in an escape room adventure because they love solving the puzzle, which ultimately moves you to the next room in the game.

Man excited for escape room

The Escape Room Aficionado

The escape room aficionado is someone who loves everything about the game and usually has been to dozens of escape rooms across the country or in their local area. They also tend to be the natural leader in the group because they know how the game works and what needs to be done in order to solve the puzzle.

Woman coordinating group

The Coordinator

Sometimes called the project manager, the coordinator makes sure everyone stays on task and works toward solving the puzzle. After all, when you are in a room with your friends, it can be super easy to waste time and chit-chat. The coordinator also keeps everyone else abreast of what is happening.

Strong man

The Muscle

Some escape room adventures do require some heavy lifting so to speak. In that case, you'll definitely want someone who is strong and can fill that role. Physical dexterity may be required, too, such as being able to open a contraption of some sort. Let the muscle take the lead so time is not wasted in these activities.
