Escape rooms have become a popular form of entertainment in recent years, and for good reason! These immersive experiences offer a thrilling challenge that requires problem-solving skills, teamwork, and quick thinking. But what if you could take the excitement of an escape room and create your own at home? That's where DIY escape room props come in.

Creating your own escape room doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. With a little bit of creativity and some easy-to-find materials, you can design puzzles and challenges that will keep your friends and family entertained for hours. Here are a few DIY escape room prop ideas to get you started.

1. Cipher Wheel

Creating a cipher wheel is an excellent way to challenge your players' code-breaking skills. All you need is a round piece of paper or cardboard and a brad to attach it to a stand. Divide the wheel into sections and write your coded message around the wheel. Then, give your players a clue to help them decipher the message.

2. Invisible Ink

Using invisible ink is a classic escape room prop that's easy to make at home. All you need is lemon juice and a paintbrush or Q-tip. Write your message on a piece of paper using the lemon juice and let it dry. When your players hold the paper up to a heat source, such as a light bulb or hair dryer, the message will appear!

3. Jigsaw Puzzle

Creating a custom jigsaw puzzle is a great way to get your players thinking creatively. You can use a photo or an image that relates to your theme and then cut it into jigsaw pieces. For an added challenge, you can hide some of the pieces around the room and give your players a clue to help them find them.

While creating your own escape room can be a fun and rewarding experience, sometimes it's just easier to leave it to the professionals. That's where Escape Room Era comes in. Located in Anaheim, California, Escape Room Era offers a variety of immersive interactive game rooms for players to enjoy.

Their game rooms include themes like post-apocalyptic survival, murder-mystery, and holiday-themed adventures. Each room is designed to be solved within a one-hour timeframe and is priced based on the complexity and design of the room. Groups of two players will pay slightly more for some of the rooms.

Escape Room Era has recently expanded operations through a partnership with Escapade Games, which includes a notable horror-themed room called "Zoe". However, due to Escapade Games' relocation, this particular room is unavailable for booking at the moment.

Whether you're creating your own DIY escape room or looking for an exciting escape room experience, there are plenty of options to choose from. With a little bit of creativity and some teamwork, you can design puzzles and challenges that will keep your players engaged and entertained for hours!
