1.It’s a lot of fun
This one might seem pretty obvious but it's true! An escape room experience should be, and will be, a lot of fun. It requires using common sense, as well as, thinking outside of the box. Having the time constraint really makes you work harder and induces a level of panicky-fun anxiety.
2.It’s a great team building exercise
This will show you who is the “group leader” and who is the “follower” of the group. It may come as a bit of a shock when multiple leaders emerge at once, just go with it. This experience will allow everyone to work together and try to reach one common goal.
3.It will lead to jokes you can crack for months, even years to come.
Maybe your group will get stuck with some random people that weren’t quite what you were expecting. Maybe your own group members will pull some weird stuff that will make you utterly confused. The things that are said and done under a time constraint can lead to some doubling over in laughter stories when you see that group again.
4.It’s something different to do on a weekend that doesn’t involve either partying or sitting at home.
It may not come as a shock that every weekend rolls around and the options are go out to a party, or sit at home and watch movies. Not many people want to do much else. This is a nice change of pace and will allow you to have good clean fun.
5.It will lead to a good, long lasting memory.
No matter if you “escape” or not, the experience will always be one you look back upon. It will be something to laugh and boast about, or laugh and not be too proud of. Nevertheless, you will laugh at your memories often, and remember the experience forever.
