Most players prefer to visit escape rooms in teams consisting of 3-5 people. These numbers are not random: when you’re in a small group, it’s a lot easier to manage your overall escape plans, and everyone gets to participate.

Of course, this tendency influences how the escape rooms for several people are designed. Most real-life escape quests are created with only 3-5 people in mind, so even if the studio allows more prominent groups to participate, space can become a bit more crowded.
