Is this best to do with your own group? Is it possible and still fun to just go as a couple and join with others?
I'd be curious too from people that have done Escape Rooms with strangers. I've only ever done it with a group of people I know. I must admit, they are a ton of fun! But like you I'm curious if me and my wife did it and got put with a group of people we didn't know how much fun it would be.
I would recommend doing it with your own group of friends, just be sure to RESERVE A TIME or else you won’t be able to play. My friends and I got together, but didn’t reserve a time. Doing it publicly (with strangers) is fun too, but with friends is more fun. Hope this helps!
