How long does the game take?

We design all of our games for an average playtime of an hour. But that can greatly change how the game is actually played.


A party environment is usually not the most under-pressure setting. A small talk between puzzles, a fetch of drinks, or even small breaks may interrupt the game. But no need to worry about it! Unlike a real-life escape room, you’ll not be kicked out of the game after 60 minutes. Printable escape rooms for the win, right?

How many players can join the fun?

As you may have noticed, printable escape games are so versatile to use. And the number of players is no exception!


We believe that the ideal team size is four players. Why? Because a printable escape room requires physical manipulation of the game materials to solve the escape room puzzles.


Are five players too many? Of course not! But make sure you use a large surface area to play. Everyone should be able to touch and handle the escape room puzzles in order to solve them.


Have a larger group? Split it into teams! Compete with one another for escape, or play the 4th of July Escape Room one after the other.


Nothing gets destroyed while playing, so it’s perfectly reusable!

Got stuck? Use the hint strips!

Compared to other DIY escape rooms on the market, we eliminated the need for a game master for the 4th of July Printable Escape Room. The person setting the game up can also join the fun!


If players get stuck, they can directly access hints and solutions for each of the ten puzzles. Everything they need is included in the puzzle envelopes!


The perfect Internet-free escape room!


Our Independence Day Printable Escape Room features ten immersive escape room puzzles that teach on the history of 4th of July. With beautiful elements of The Statue of Liberty, the game provides unlimited fun for date nights and class activities.
