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.
Take, for example, our signature escape room, Runaway Train. This room is made to simulate a real New York Subway train that is speeding toward a fiery crash.
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.
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.

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