So many puzzles in Room Escapes utilize the sense of sight, but what about touch? The Braille Box prop utilizes braille to relay a 4 digit code.
Important: By default the box will come with a code of 2637. IF you want a different code please make the appropriate selection from the drop down box and enter the code in the "Special Instructions for Seller" box on the checkout page.
The goal for your guests is to find the secret code. When discovered , the code can be used in whatever manner the Escape Room desires, such as perhaps the combination to a lock or door. Or perhaps a 4 letter word that is needed in the next puzzle challenge.
The box 6” x 6” x 3” box is solid and will not open. It is also empty. On the bottom size is a hole large enough to easily fit a finger. Around the outer sides of the box are the digits 0 to 9 with their braille equivalent. Your quests will no doubt wonder what an empty box is for!
There is a secret inside the box though…
The bottom of the box has the numbers 1 to 4 laser engraved at 90 degree intervals around the center hole. If one sticks a finger in the box and feels under each of these locations, a series of raised dots can be felt. Eureka!
However, now those raised dots must be interpreted to numbers using just your finger senses combined with braille table glued to the sides of the box.
The design was the result of an Escape Room owner asking us if we could build something so that a blind person could actively participate in the Escape Room Experience. Though a sighted person can solve this; the edge would certainly go the person who can read braille with their fingertips!

Q: How long does it take for you to ship an order?
A: This is a tricky one as it really depends upon what you order. Some puzzles (such as mazes) take longer to make than a cipher wheel or lobby puzzle. Often times I can have an order ready to ship within 5 business days. Other factors such as custom requests/engraving will increase lead time.
Q: Why is my order shipping to Folcroft, PA. I do not even live in the United States?!
A: The address shown in Folcroft, PA is an International Shipping Hub. From there your puzzles will be redirected to you. The confirmation Email sent after placing your order contains another link with more detailed shipping/tracking information.
A lot of our puzzles can be customized with different images, text, symbols and codes.
If you are placing an order for any puzzle which requires a code such as:
- Magnet Maze
- Disk Maze
- Directional Lock Puzzle
- Grille Cipher
- Holey Moley
- Braille Box
Please select "Yes" to customization and Email me the code.
All Magnet Mazes require a code from you, the other puzzles will have a standard code used if a custom code is not selected.
International Orders Please Email me the code at CreativeEscapeRooms@Gmail.com
There is not an additional charge for a custom code on Magnet Mazes. There is a small fee for customizing the puzzles.
It is very important to relay codes for mazes and any custom information to me at the time of your order. I cannot get started until knowing exactly what you want. If I do not have this information it will increase the amount of time it takes for you to have the puzzle in your hands.
If you would like to add images or more extensive customization please contact me prior to placing your order so we can work out the details.
I can also create custom one off props to fit in with the exact needs of your room. If you have an idea please do not hesitate to contact me. We may just be able to bring it to life.
