WHY PLAY AN ESCAPE ROOM?

Escape rooms are fully immersive adventure game experiences for company events, family bonding, and friends getaway. Our escape rooms are adventure-based games where players seek to solve puzzles and riddles to achieve a task.

ESCAPE ROOMS PROMOTE ENGAGEMENT

Escape rooms are usually timebound. Having a time limit to accomplish a task creates a sense of urgency and risk, adding emotional commitment to the experience. The provided storyline can produce a passionate response and make us curious to get to the bottom of the story. The desire to close a good story gap promotes our intrinsic motivation, one of the reasons why escape rooms can be such great learning tools. Escape rooms present the opportunity for a successful outcome—the ending comes to an apex where we reach the “sweet spot” between entertainment, education, escapism and aesthetics.

ESCAPE ROOMS CAN BE A BRIDGE TO PEAK EXPERIENCE

Escape rooms are immersive and engrossing. Well-designed rooms are visually appealing and engage most of our senses. You arrive an ordinary joe and, if triumphant, emerge a hero. Although the time spent in an escape room is not necessarily long enough to be life-transforming, the experience can offer a healthy dose of adrenaline and an ego boost. If the experience is totally immersive, you may be lucky enough to enter a state so consuming that nothing else seems to matter during game play.

ESCAPE ROOMS ENCOURAGE US TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

Puzzle solving is a form of problem-solving. The process requires creativity and often requires us to think in a nonlinear fashion. One limitation of our brains that sometimes prevents us from finding the best solution is known as the Einstellung effect. This effect highlights our brain’s tendency to stubbornly cling to familiar solutions at the cost of forsaking better ones. Escape rooms are known for exploiting the Einstellung effect. Quality escape rooms will often penalize us for doing what is expected and force us instead to use the more creative side of our brain if we want to move forward.

ESCAPE ROOMS ENABLE US TO CONNECT WITH OUR INNER CHILD

Playing games is in our DNA. We know that Ancient Egyptians, dating back to 3500 BC, had board games. Amazing escape rooms tap into our youthful playfulness, as well as our fascination of wonder. Somewhere, in almost all of us, there is a kid that loves to solve mysteries, explore the unknown, be the hero or the adventurer looking for hidden treasures. Unfortunately, often this curious/creative part of us has been pushed aside by the “grownup” part. Great escape rooms can give us back that sense of excitement and wonder. In an escape room, the child within all of us has an opportunity to use imagination, push boundaries and play with friends.

ESCAPE ROOMS HELP BUILD RELATIONSHIPS

Escape rooms often require cooperation and teamwork. They are also an excellent way to get to better know people and build bonds in a short amount of time. To be successful at an escape room built for groups, individuals need to know how to effectively communicate with each other and lean on each other’s skill sets. When a team comes together to achieve a common goal, it gives the group a feeling of satisfaction and closeness. Role-playing within an escape room environment gives us an opportunity to move out of our comfort zone and engage with people in new ways.
