How to Rob a Bank Without Getting Caught

That’s highly unlikely that any of our regular visitors come to a bank thinking “Oh, it would be so much fun to get locked in here and then try a daring escape”. Yet, bank escape rooms remain extremely popular. Teenagers and adults, families and couples: everybody just loves them:

The thing is, real life banks are boring. They’re all about accounting, and budget planning, and web security. But the banks we see in spy movies are completely different. They’ve got lasers everywhere, there are lots of original security system mechanics, and the main treasure is kept in a vault that looks like a modern-life dragon cave. And that’s exactly the type of banks modern players like to escape from.

What Are Bank Escape Rooms Like

While there certainly is an established genre, the possibilities are not by any means limited by it. Every once in a while, somebody comes up with a new clever story, or puzzle style, or plot twist, that completely turns everything around. You shouldn’t get too comfortable making your way through a bank escape room, even if you’ve made your homework and watched all the movies about bank robbery: there’s always something new that can catch you off-guard.

If you’re not up to surprises, it’ll be good to at least know the basic scenarios of the bank escape rooms:

  • You and your team are the criminals, and you’re robbing the bank. That doesn’t automatically make you a bad guy: what if you’re some kind of Robin Hood character who’s only taking money away from the riches in order to give it all to the poor? Or maybe somebody stole a valuable item from you, and the bank is guarding it. The law is not on your side, but the possession is yours, and you’re going to gain it back. Either way, you’re on your own, and there’s only so much time left before the security alarm goes off.
  • You’re trying to get out as much cash as possible. One of the most popular scenarios for escape rooms, at it contains a strong competition element. The main adventure here is not just taking what you need and getting out successfully. Instead, it’s getting your hands on everything you can find. At the end of the game, your cash will be counted, and you’ll be granted special prizes based on how much money have you got.
  • You’re trying to catch the criminals. So, you’re a cop (or a detective). You were supposed to stop the robbers, but they locked you in the bank. Try to break out and catch them, but be quick: if you won’t make it within the time limit, the criminals will get away!
