Escape Rooms are the hottest trend sweeping America. The uninitiated may ask ‘Why’? Or ‘The concept sounds scary?’ And ‘Are escape rooms fun?’

The answer is yes; they are fun, challenging and can be thrilling. Escape Rooms are a new form of entertainment that started in 2011 and have been growing in popularity ever since. In addition to puzzle-solving, most rooms will have a theme or story that adds to the environment and adds a sense of adventure to each room.

 In this blog, we’ll look at the five biggest reasons why people like escape rooms.

Challenging Escape Rooms

Escape Rooms, as the name implies, is something you need to escape from. Each room is crafted differently with a different puzzle and solutions from one another. Also, the themes of each escape room enrich the atmosphere and provide a thrilling experience.

The environment from bumps to the train and flashing lights are designed to enhance the mood and throw you off discovering the next clue?

Do you think you have what it takes to stop this train? There’s only one way to find out.

Escape Rooms are Social

Are you looking for a chance to meet new people? Or discover a new, exciting event for your family and friends to do together? Escape Rooms offer both of those experiences at once.

Escape Virtuality offers booking public escape room adventures as well as private bookings. Most escape rooms are designed so that they cannot be solved by a single person alone.

Rooms such as Runaway Train offer thrilling fun for 2 to 8 people. While rooms such as Mission: Galaxy Quest offers larger participation for up to three groups competing with one another.

How you solve an escape room depends on how well you can work together. But one thing is for sure they offer fun for all ages, for your family and friends.

They are Immersive 

One of the best things about escape rooms is how immersive they can be. Escape Virtuality takes it to the next level by enhancing the environment with VR technology.

Spirits in the Ghost Collector will send shivers up your spine because they are simulated using state of the art holographic technology.

Our Meltdown goes all in with the virtual reality experience being the only that is fully VR. Using VR techniques allows us to blur the lines between reality and fantasy. The experience is thrilling and exciting. And it can only be found at Escape Virtuality. 

They Encourage Teamwork

Every escape room at Escape Virtuality is designed to be solved by a team working together. The multitude of clues scattered throughout the room.

In many cases, clues are provided to the players in such a way that it requires brainstorming to find the next piece of the puzzle. The better you can work together as a team, the higher your odds of solving the room are.

What is corporate team building

This makes escape rooms the perfect team-building exercise, and many companies will plan retreats and other events with us so they can better develop their employee’s cohesion.

They give you an Adrenaline rush

Every minute in an escape room is a race against time. Every second counts. You’ll feel time weighing upon you. Can’t find the next clue? What could it be? No time for second guesses, you have only minutes to spare.

On top of everything, the room will do its best to distract you. From jarring sounds to flicking lights and claustrophobia pressing down you, every moment is a thrill ride.

Adrenaline junkies love escape rooms because they create frightening, realistic sensations and force the player to think, adjust, and adapt to a complex situation.

But nothing is more of a rush than solving a puzzle. You’ll have conquered your fears, worries, and time itself, and the only other question you’ll be asking yourself is, ‘When can I go again?’
