Tyler's Original Room Escape Adventure

At Tyler’s original escape room adventure, we work hard to make sure our guests have a fun and memorable escape room experience.

 We want to help you make the most of your adventure! Check back regularly to see what information (and promo codes) will be added or subscribe to our email list and get the updates first!

Our goal is to make sure our customers have a blast and love their escape room experience at One Way Out - TylerEscape.com! In keeping with that motto, we want to get to know you a little better. We have put together some hilarious descriptions of different escape room players and want you to pick your Escape Room Persona!

Escape Room Persona
Are you wondering “what is an escape room?” Why would you want to be “locked” in a room? Have you heard of these things called escape rooms but have no idea what to expect? Not to worry – newbies are welcome additions to the escape room family so just be willing to step out of your comfort zone and try something new!
Do escape rooms confuse you? Do you try to help but don’t quite understand what to do? Have you taken advantage of the hints and the game master lifeline...a lot? You are not alone – game masters love to convert people just like you into escape aficionados because with more practice you could become an expert!
Do you know more than everyone else? Are the game masters just in your way? Why won’t all these people just listen to your plan! We know…we know…having all that knowledge can be a burden, but we appreciate how much smarty-pants contribute to escape room success. (Plus we may have a family member or two who fall into this category!)
Do you break things…like rules, locks, and even escape rooms? Do you try to find loopholes and bypass escape room game play? Have you “accidentally” pulled escape room props apart to try to solve the room? Escape room annihilators push the boundaries for game masters - we accept the challenge since most groups have at least one rule breaker (Please be kind to the props!)
Are you an escape room expert? Have you attempted and escaped from multiple rooms? Do you plan trips just so you can visit new escape rooms? We don’t judge because we can relate! Escape aficionados know their way around escape rooms, are great at thinking outside the box, and make the perfect brand ambassadors to introduce new people to the experience!

Tips for Escape Room Success

Bring Your Squad

Making new friends is a fun perk of escape rooms but there is something to be said about working with people you already know! Take advantage of the private group option we offer, assemble your own dream team and see how well you work together to escape.

Communication is Key

Make sure your team shares things they discover during the attempt to escape. Clues can show up everywhere and something one person finds may not help their puzzle, but could be the essential clue for someone else.

Work Smart

Avoid being a spectator, you will need all hands on deck to solve the puzzles in the allotted time. So work together, search the room thoroughly, take notes, and keep your team organized as you find clues.
SPECIAL ONLINE GROUP DISCOUNT: Book an entire room online and receive a special group discount! On the booking page, check mark "private experience" to receive the discount.  *This discount only works online and if no other guests have booked spaces in a particular time slot.*

Avoid Overthinking

Our escape rooms are engineered for your team to be able to escape but the clues can also cause you to seriously overthink. If you think a complex math solution, dismantling a piece of furniture, or little known skill is required to solve your puzzle, you are in too deep.

Divide and Conquer

In order to avoid wasting time, don’t try to solve puzzles as a group, divide up and conquer the room. Puzzles can be a time drain. If you get stumped, pass the puzzle to someone else and move onto something new.

Take Advantage of Hints

Our game masters are brilliant escape room technicians who give helpful hints. We want your team to succeed so take advantage of the voice over the radio. You can escape the room without help, but if you get stuck, just ask!

Practice the Locks

Before your introduction to the room, take a few minutes to practice with the locks in our waiting room. Make sure your team knows how to reset and unlock the locks. Unlocking locks correctly can make or break your escape!

And remember to have fun!!!

No special skills are required!
Just be creative, curious, and observant.

In the sagas of old, escape rooms would look to their wise and benevolent clue queen to guide the people who were locked away and needed a voice to help them solve mysteries. As the original escape room in East Texas, we have returned to these ways.

If you have been to One Way Out recently, you have probably received guidance, wisdom, and a little snark from the voice on the other end of the radio. We would like to put a face to the voice by introducing our own Clue Queen...
Rachel has worked at One Way Out - TylerEscape.com since our launch in 2015. In the last year, she has taken on the role of Clue Queen, providing our guests with humor, clues, and tips when they need guidance during their experience.
Book your adventure today and sure to give Rachel a high five and a good review after you escape!
