Sometimes it can be hard for the family and friends to try and do something fun together. Parents plop in front of the TV, kids are glued to their tablets. Or you go out with your friends, but everyone’s texting away on their phones. And sure, you’re all hanging out, but don’t you wish you could all do something with each other? Of course, there’s always going out to the movies or a museum, but that’s all been done before. You want to escape from boredom.
You want something new. Something exciting.
Something fun and mysterious and full of adventure that everyone will love. You need to try an escape room.
A Great Escape
What, you may ask, is an escape room? An escape room involves being locked in a room for a limited amount of time and solving various puzzles to – you guessed it – escape. Family and friends must all work together to figure out the clues in a limited amount of time in order to break out.
There’s a mystery to solve or a story you’re a part of, so it’s like being in a live-action video game. Except everyone’s playing at once. You all get a starring role. And since you must riddle your way out of the room as a team, everyone gets a shot to help out and discover their inner detective and escape from boredom.
It gets you talking to each other, and you may even learn something new! Maybe your cousin is actually a Sherlock Holmes in disguise, or maybe your best friend will uncover a penchant for puzzle-solving, or maybe you realize you all just really love escape rooms.
There are even differently themed rooms to explore – so one day your friends might feel like escaping a haunted prison you’ve somehow ended up locked in, and another evening you and your family might feel more like solving a murder based on a crime scene. The world of escape rooms is your oyster.
And the sweet, sweet taste of victory once you all escape? Priceless.
