We’ve seen it many times. Guests arrive at Room to Escape with a sense of friendly competition and the will to win. They work as a team, find clues, solve puzzles and crack codes as they play the game. We’re rooting for them, but they can’t seem to open the final lock before the clock runs out.
Not escaping in time can be disappointing, especially for those of us who tend to be competitive. You might be wondering if an escape game is worth your time and effort, even when you don’t win. At Room to Escape, we say YES it is, and here’s why:
If you didn’t win this time, we hope you’ll try again at Room to Escape!
Escape rooms improve mindfulness.
If there’s a buzzword in contemporary psychology today it’s “mindfulness.” We all want to remember what it’s like to live in the moment. Actress-turned-writer Goldie Hawn has published books on the topic and leads seminars for children and adults. Hawn wrote that, ““Mindful awareness is simply paying attention to what is happening now.” Room to Escape provides an environment where mindfulness is possible.
Try an hour-long escape room experience and remember what it’s like to live in the moment!
Escape rooms encourage teamwork.
In an escape room, up to twelve players work together to find their way out. This requires us to open our minds to the ideas, opinions, and talents of others. Teamwork means thinking in new ways and bringing diverse ideas into reality.
According to an article published in Scientific American, the teamwork of early humans is what made today’s advanced cognition possible. Go, team!
Escape rooms use your WHOLE brain.
Finding clues, solving ciphers, and cracking codes is so fun, you might not even notice how much brain power you’re generating! You’ll draw upon math skills you’d forgotten and bring your critical thinking abilities to the forefront of your mind. Your memory comes into play when you’re putting clues together. Hand-to-eye coordination is essential for opening locks. You’ll challenge your own visual perception and that of your teammates.
Room to Escape is like a full-brain workout. We hope you’ll leave feeling even smarter than when you came in!
