Pushing boundaries is in the DNA of every successful business, especially in the food and entertainment industry. Take restaurants for example. Has your favorite restaurants ever updated the menu and removed the most popular dishes? It seems illogical until you realize that the chef’s goal was to continually raise the bar of excellence. Staying with the popular, yet old, menu is the safe option…but great restaurants and great escape rooms aren’t the ones normally taking the safe route.
That’s why after only 13 months of operation, we’re changing out 50% our escape rooms for new designs. Our rooms have proven to be very popular and successful…just look at the Google reviews...but we’re in the mood to shake things up and see how we can take Awesome and make it Awesomer. (Yes, we know that’s not a real word…or is it?)
Opening new rooms is one of the pleasures of owning an escape room business. There’s so much exciting activity that goes into the design of a new room. We partner with the best artists and tradesmen from across the country to bring you the absolute best designs.
Putting together an escape room is easy…. Creating a GREAT escape room requires the top designers, confident investment and a bit of divine intervention.
As we discussed in a previous blog, a GREAT escape room takes an entire village of artisans to complete. Some are obvious and some may surprise you:
In the end, everything needs to come together to provide a holistic creation that’s engaging, immersive, and generally awesomer. Players need to leave with an adrenaline inspired smile on their face.
Here’s where you can help. Give us your thoughts and opinions on escape room designs.
We don’t care where the idea came from, just share it with us so we can raise the bar.
Thanks and stay tuned for more information in the coming months!

Creativity is a skill that benefits everyone. It’s not reserved just for the Silicon Valley software entrepreneurs or SpaceX engineers. We all can be creative; it just come easier for some. In some ways, creativity is self-propagating. The more you adopt creative habits, the easier it becomes.
Creativity flourishes in those environments where norms and assumptions are put aside so people can see beyond what is expected. Creativity doesn’t flourish in rigid confines of behavioral restraint. The more we open ourselves to new ideas and stimulus, the more creative we can become. Some people are more adept to creative thinking, but it’s something we all can foster in ourselves and our teams.
Escape Rooms are a perfect activity to help cultivate your creative side. As you might expect, escape rooms present puzzles and challenges that often require an alternative approach. Most escape rooms aren’t straight-forward efforts. Simple, linear games lack…well…creativity.
Whether it’s family time, a group night out, or corporate event, an escape room challenge can help get the creative juices flowing. Here’s how…per Misty Belardo’s explanation of creative people in her Bitrebels.com article.
Creative people are curious. They ask questions all the time.
While we can’t guarantee that playing escape rooms will turn you or your team into the next Elon Musk, it may help get you thinking more creativity and even help you have some fun along the way.
Will to Escape - Escape Rooms are located in Downtown Abacoa in Jupiter, FL. They serve customers in Jupiter, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and Orlando.
It’s no secret that art imitates life. We see it everywhere. But, have you considered how escape rooms emulate life also?
No, they really do. Hear me out for a minute.
Like in any escape room, life sometimes puts you into a strange environment with a challenge that must be faced before moving on. You can either face the challenge alone or leverage the group around you. In both, there’s power in numbers with an often synergistic effect.
In life, like in an escape room, time doesn't stop for you. You need to address things within a given time frame or possibly watch opportunity pass you by. Likewise, there are often more obstacles to face along the way in both…some are easily addressed…some require all your efforts…some you end up doing twice.
Wow, that’s kind of deep. Yup…but I got more…
Attention-to-detail is equally important in an escape room as it is in life. You can miss critically important facts if you’re not paying attention. This is one of the reasons we have everyone lock-up their phones before entering our rooms. Fewer distractions help your chances for success.
Escape rooms offer a kind of ‘virtual life challenge’ condensed into one hour. We keep the time limit strict, so you don’t miss your dinner reservations at Aaron’s Table next door…no one wants that.
In the end, sometimes you win, sometimes you come close, but everything is exciting along the journey for both. I think this is why escape rooms are so popular with families and businesses. It allows families and teams to go on a 60-minute journey together and come out stronger in the end.
P.S. Save us some truffle-parm fries at Aaron’s Table.
Happy New Year from your friends at ‘Will to Escape’ Escape Rooms in Jupiter!
The New Year brings a lot of resolutions. Some we keep…. some we don’t. If you’re like us, most go to the wayside by MLK day. Nevertheless, we try again every year. For 2020, we're making a resolution to create “more quality family time.” Our jam-packed lives often leave little room for family time and frequently the time together is less than high quality. Have you ever been at the dinner table with everyone immersive in their phones? We have. No quality family time there.
So, this year we’re making a resolution that’s focused on our family fun time.
If you’re looking to do the same, keep Escape Rooms in mind as the ideal activity. Escape Room’s offer an hour break from the real world. They’re exciting adventures that will challenge your mind and teamwork. Here are a couple of more reasons to consider escape rooms:
1. Tech Free Zone. Everyone leaves their phone in a secure locker for the hour in an escape room. This provides the best environment for family fun.
2. Teamwork Required. Escape rooms are designed for teamwork. You’ll have a very good chance of conquering the escape room if you work together on the challenge. A team of individuals will not fare so well.
3. It can become a reoccurring family event. Jupiter and South Florida offer some of the best escape rooms with a wide selection of choices. The family escape room challenge could become an ongoing event.
4. Escape Rooms are really, really fun. Period.
New Year’s resolutions are often set tongue-and-cheek with few expectations. But why not set a ‘family fun’ resolution this year that everyone in the family will want to keep? Stop by ‘Will to Escape’ Escape Rooms in Jupiter and let us help you keep this one.

The design of a great escape room is 50% science, 50% art, and 10% prayer. Yes, those equal 110%...but that’s what it takes to design a GREAT escape room…a little extra to go from good to great. We started in the escape room business because we love escape rooms. We have a passion for escape rooms and play other rooms as often as possible. I’d say we’re escape room customers as much as escape room owners and that’s why we have a passion for providing GREAT escape rooms and refuse to provide anything less.
Creating, building, and maintaining a great escape room takes the collaboration of many skilled people. The conception of our newest room, THE GATE, took a village of highly skilled professionals to get it done. In our case, delivery of a world-class room required:
· Enigmatology (Puzzle design)
· Storytelling expertise
· Set Design
· Special Effects
· Software programming
· Audio/Visual installation
· Project management
· Quality management
· Yoda-like patience
In the end, everything needs to come together to provide a holistic creation that’s engaging, immersive, and generally awesome. The result should equal more than the sum of its parts. Players need to leave with an adrenaline inspired smile on their face.
As with most things in life, nothing special comes easy. We look for the finest partners to collaborate on our room design to help ensure a world-class product. The best designs and the best people make it happen. We decided to partner with our friends at Themescape Escape Rooms and Algorythym Designs again to build our latest room, THE GATE.
The Escape Room market has grown a crazy amount over the last couple of years. With volume, comes a lot of different philosophies on room design. Some are good, some not so good, some just different. Regardless, room design is the most important responsibility of an escape room owner. We do our absolute best to provide a world-class product.
Come experience the results for yourself. Excellence…it’s an everyday journey…not a destination. Check out more about THE GATE.
