The Hype Around Escape Rooms

It’s no secret that escape rooms have increased in popularity greatly over the last few years. Everywhere you go there are new and exciting escape rooms to challenge yourself with. As of now, there are over 2800 escape rooms available worldwide and new ones have been popping up every day. Why is it that escape rooms have become so popular? Well, the answer is pretty straightforward.

With the hustle and bustle of everyday life and daily routines, it’s easy for us to forget to make time for fun. Step outside of your normal routine and try something new! Besides being in a real-life setting, they’re very much like video games. Taking on a different persona or a specific situation gives you a break from being you… not that there’s anything wrong with you! It’s just fun to pretend otherwise sometimes. You could be running from a zombie horde, orchestrating a prison break or even redirecting your spaceship to avoid a catastrophic disaster… There are no limits!

Competition & Curiosity

The feeling of accomplishment is truly a wonderful thing. Being able to say you’ve overcome challenges with a team is no easy task. It’s an even better feeling when your team has not only conquered the challenges but has also dominated the leaderboards! The strive to win is a constant in human nature. Regardless of if it’s a sporting event, gaming or work-related, there is always an element of competition in everything we do.

Along with competition being in our nature, so is being curious. Naturally, we are always on the move to discover new experiences, to learn and do more. This drive starts at birth and continues throughout our lifecycle. Escape rooms nurture our curiosity by allowing us to develop better communication skills, figure out puzzles to see what’s next and feel that sense of accomplishment when you escape. 

Escape rooms allow us to feel important and to be part of a team. Teamwork, a sense of confidence, and unsolved mysteries are some things that attract people very much. Escape rooms are good for anyone, regardless of sex, age or background and do not require specific knowledge or qualification.
