As the cold weather settles in, there are fewer fun activities for groups to choose, since outdoor activities are not as appealing as they were in the summer. However, if you can think outside the box, and with proper planning and timely booking, there are still a lot of fun activities to get into. One of them is the relatively new craze called escape rooms.
What are Escape Rooms?
Basically, an escape room is an interactive, physical adventure game. Participants are tasked with solving complex puzzles, riddles and challenges using hidden clues and hints, all in hopes of figuring out a way to escape the room. Usually, the rooms will have a special theme or plot behind them, as well as a time limit on how long the players have to complete it. Read more at All Island Transportation...
What makes escape rooms a lot more fun compared to your typical game night is that they are much more interactive, engaging and exciting. They require participants to work as a team in order to ‘escape’.
Beating an escape room requires good communication between escapees, and each of your individual perspectives will certainly help to figure out the multiple clues and tips that will get you out. That’s why an escape room can actually be a great idea for corporate team building.
Escape Room Themes
There are all sorts of themed escape rooms out there, ranging from horror scenarios to fantasy and adventure. Certain escape rooms are also educational, giving participants the opportunity to improve their historical knowledge, all while having lots of fun. The following is an example:
Through the setbacks, the Rieses set up their first history-themed room, which is based on Jefferson’s daring escape from Monticello on June 4, 1781, following Jack Jouett’s warning that British troops were arriving.
...The Rieses have worked to create the urgency Jefferson likely felt by having a 60-minute time limit to solve the room’s puzzles. Participants must locate clues within the room and find passageways to escape before the time runs out. Read full post at Daily Progress...
