Why choose escape rooms as an experience? 

  1. An excellent team-building activity 

Escape rooms often require people to participate in groups. Corporate companies also resort to escape rooms to help their team function better and bring everyone on the same page. With the limited time at hand, it is crucial that all the team members work together to solve the puzzles and find clues to make it out on time. Escape room puzzles are no child’s-play. So yes, it’s not possible that a person single-handedly will be able to do all the thinking and all the work. 

  1. It helps one think more creatively 

Solving escape room puzzles is not as easy as it may look. These puzzles and clues can be found in the most extraordinary of places. Hence, it is a given that extraordinary puzzles require you to think extraordinarily in order to solve them. Escape rooms open gates for one to think as creatively as one can. The sky’s the limit. The time limit creates good pressure on one to give up their conventional ways of thinking and think outside the box. 

  1. Promotes time-management skills 

No escape room gives you forever to figure out and escape the room. This makes scary escape rooms better than any other puzzle game out there. The pressure builds exponentially as the clock keeps ticking. This is where time management comes to your rescue. It is very important that you allot enough time for each puzzle so that you can solve it all in time. Sometimes people get so hung up on one tough puzzle that once they come up with a solution, they don’t have enough time to solve all the easy ones. Time-management skills are one crucial skill that escape rooms require one to harness very well, and help in their development.
