Oceanic Suites, the world’s first underwater hotel, has invited you to an exclusive stay at their hotel before it is open to the public. Kind of like in Jurassic Park. But they promise nothing will go wrong…
What is a DIY escape room?
Escape rooms are immersive games where players are “locked” in a room and have to find clues and solve puzzles to escape. You can pay and play escape rooms all over the world.
This Seafloor Escape kit is a download that has everything you need to host the same kind of high-suspense, realistic-feel escape room, in any room you choose. All of the planning has been done for you. You just print, prepare, and host.
In Seafloor Escape, your guests end up “trapped” in a flooding underwater hotel—with no power! Your guests will have to accomplish several tasks to escape, including searching the room in the dark for clues and turning the power back on—not to mention catching a corporate spy!
Will this escape room kit work for me?
This escape room is designed for:
- 3 to 5 players
- Ages 12 and up
- About 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete (If you play the game as it is written with clues hidden in a dark room, it will take closer to 1 hour. If you play in a light room without hidden clues, it will probably take closer to 30 minutes.)
Seafloor Escape would make a great:
- Birthday party
- Date night
- Family reunion activity
- Youth night
- Corporate team building exercise
For groups larger than 3 to 5 players, you can run the room more than once or have multiple groups compete at the same time. The groups don’t even have to be in their own rooms. If your space is big enough, just divide players into teams of 4ish and give each team a set of clues at their own table.
It’s a great room if you want the feel of a commercial escape room, where your guests really feel like they’re locked in a room and are trying to escape (and if you don’t mind doing some reading and setup). If you want something quick and easy that only involves printing, it’s not the room for you.
How does it work?
After you purchase Seafloor Escape, you will get a set of files to download. Included are detailed instructions, printable clues, and some fun extras (like invites, decorations, photo op signs, background ambiance music, and instructional videos).
You will print the clues from the download as well as supply some physical objects like locks (see below for a complete list). Then hide the clues in the room and watch as your players search, solve, and escape! Everything you need to do and say is included in the instructions. Even if you’ve never done an escape room before, you can do this!
What does it look like?
Setting up and hosting your room will look something like this:
“My husband and I have gone to several escape rooms for date nights. We loved the underwater hotel escape room. This was better than a lot of the commercial escape rooms we’ve gone to and it’s so neat that you can do it at your own home! All the materials looked so professional. We were very impressed.” – Charisse W.
“I set up the Seafloor Escape for my family last night & it was so fun! I LOVED all the decorating printouts for the hotel – made for an easy set-up. I am just super amazed at how well organized everything is. It takes some time to print and put together, but so easy to follow your instructions. The long code to get out of the room was tricky, but they figured it out. My 9yr old daughter ripped apart the room and went through all the clothes in the suitcase to find so many of the hidden clues. Now that they are getting better at the escape rooms, I’m going to have to find better hiding places!” – LeAnne J.
“This escape room is so fun! The writing is really is so creative and the puzzles require the perfect balance of teamwork and out of the box thinking. The story is really well written which makes it easy to get into the game. I plan on using this escape room many more times in the future!” – Audrey J.
“I thought that the Seafloor Escape game was fantastic. There was a great wrinkle that completely changed some of the elements of escape rooms that I am used to. Absolutely worth playing.” – Chris M.
“It was amazing! I used this idea at a Pajama Party we had at our church for our girls, and they had a blast. The escape room concept was a hit. I ran rooms simultaneously and I can’t believe how much fun they were. Thank you for all the print outs and the ideas.” – Wylean T.
“I have never done an escape room that felt so fast-paced and enjoyable! The story was great and the puzzles were challenging but not overwhelming, which is exactly what you want out of an escape room.” – Luke L.
“Dangerously fun. Clever puzzles and an imaginative story.” – Matt W.
