Holiday season is sneaking up on us, and if 2020 has told us anything, we know this one might be just a little different than past winters. The holiday season is all about spending time with the people closest to you, which usually means parties.  While large gatherings and grand celebrations may not be an option for many of us this year, it is more important than ever to engage in activities that connect us with the ones we love.

If you’re panicking trying to come up with plans to entertain your family and friends, no need to fear. We’ve got you covered. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons that escape rooms are the perfect holiday get-together.

Escape Rooms are a Great Bonding Experience

Nowadays, it is increasingly difficult to fully engage with your friends and family. Smartphones and other technologies are huge distractions and have definitely resulted in a shorter attention span for many. We’re sure you’ve had your fair share of asking your children to put their phone down at dinner.

Escape room games provide the perfect environment to fully engage with others. Upon walking into your escape room, you are fully immersed in your surroundings. In order to achieve your objective and escape the room, you must communicate with the people in your group to find clues and solve puzzles. There is constant activity in an escape room and once you have figured out one puzzle, it’s right on to the next one. This constant buzzing and communication leaves little room to hop on social media or text friends, unless you want to be a bad teammate!

All Escape the Room Bookings Are Private

In order to cope with these strange times, Escape the Room has taken multiple measures to ensure a clean and safe environment for our guests. Amongst these measures is our new policy that all Escape the Room games are private. While we did this to keep our guests safe, it has the added benefit of providing you a more intimate experience. No longer worry about being paired up with a group that you do not like or will drag your team down. When you book a room for you and your group, you will be the only people in the room!

Get Out of your Holiday Rut!

Whether it be spending too much time at home due to cold weather or other drags, the holidays can be a difficult time for many people. Fortunately, escape rooms are the perfect antidote to your holiday blues!

Escape rooms allow you to escape reality. For the one hour that you are locked in your room, nothing else matters. You’ve become part of a story and your sole objective is to put on your detective hat and escape the room; all other distractions in your life will have to wait – you have a mission to complete! Because of this, escape rooms are a great way to refresh and reset your mind while having a great time. In addition to not having to spend your evenings in the freezing cold, it’s hard to think of a reason not to visit Escape the Room.

What better way to bring everybody closer for the holidays than locking yourself in a room together? Escape the Room would love to spend the holiday season with you and yours. We hope to see you soon, and happy holidays!
