Saturday nights with friends once consisted of bars, movies or restaurants. But thanks to a new trend in entertainment, there is now a much more exciting alternative on the scene that makes you actually think, problem solve, and be an active participant. Escape rooms are the new biggest thing in entertainment, and their popularity is sweeping across all countries and continents.
If you haven’t yet heard of what an escape room is, imagine this: you and several of your closest friends (and maybe a couple of people you met only five minutes ago) are locked in a room and need to find your way out. The clock is ticking and if you want to escape, you need to uncover the hidden clues and solve a series of puzzles. Can you figure out how to open the door before the time runs out?!
There are now tons of these live action games popping up in major cities across the US, the UK, and the world. They come by different names, such as Escape Room, EscapeIQ, X-Room, Escape Entertainment, Mission Escape Games, Mystery Escape Rooms, Exodus Escape Rooms and the list goes on and on.
Why are these escape rooms so popular? These days, everyone is looking at screens all.day.long. People often communicate electronically rather than having real conversations. And most often people watch their entertainment. But these rooms give you an hour break from your usual routine. They make you put down the phone and actually talk to folks, laugh a ton, and psychically participate in something new and exciting. We highly recommend you check one out!
