Are you staycationing this holiday season but still want a bit of adventure? Assemble your family, friends, and/or co-workers and consider solving an escape room!
Escape rooms are immersive, interactive puzzles that you have sixty minutes to solve by finding clues within the room. Rooms are themed and have varying levels of difficulty. No matter how challenging, escape rooms are for everyone and provide many benefits that can help you.
4 Benefits of Playing an Escape Room
1. Celebrate your differences.
Great news! Escape rooms have nothing to do with how intelligent you are. Rooms feature a variety of puzzles that involve logic, observation, and memory. The more diverse learning styles your group has, the more successful your group will be. When it comes to escape rooms, it is your team’s differences that are the real key to success.
2. Strengthen your communication skills.
It is essential to work together in an escape room. Ensuring everyone in your group has an equal voice can make or break your group’s chances of success. While the concrete-sequential thinkers may latch onto a logic puzzle, the observational learners may have noticed a color pattern or hidden lock that will be critical for the group to use to escape. The more your group talks to each other and establishes a successful communication system, the faster you will progress.
3. Bond with family or co-workers.
Escape rooms provide a structured, goal-oriented activity that can bring you closer together with others, without having to worry about lengthy silences. You may even discover you have similar problem-solving skills or other commonalities with your group that never would have come up if you hadn’t tried to solve an escape room together.
4. Feel a sense of accomplishment.
Escape rooms can help boost self-esteem and self-confidence for everyone participating. Feel a rush of adrenaline while you help your group solve challenging puzzles. High-five your friends when you manage to deactivate a self-destruct switch with two seconds left on the clock. Playing an escape room is an easy way to remind yourself of your talents and problem-solving abilities, while strengthening your connections with others.
If you’re searching for an activity the whole family can safely enjoy this holiday season, or are simply looking for an alternative to the company’s annual corporate party, book an adventure with your local escape room.
