Why should kids play escape games?

In a previous post we talked about the reasons why a room escape game is addictive, in another about the fact that such a game is great for family time, but we never tackled the subject of such games for kids. Well, now it’s time to change all that.

As you know, kids love to discover and take apart things, to figure out how they work, so that’s why playing a room escape game is a great way for them to quench their thirst for knowledge.

Most parents know that if a child has energy they might just get tired before the child does and thus risk to get mad, annoyed, etc. A room escape game is great to unleash and consume a child’s energy, give him new things to do and also help him learn.

Since I’ve opened the learning subject, you might as well acknowledge the fact that it’s a great way for kids to learn, not just discover things. They’ll learn how to make connections, how to solve puzzles, enigmas and how to think outside the box.

Team work, here’s another great reason for kids to play room escape games: they’ll learn how to work in a group, how to behave as a team and most important, how to share informations. As a team they need to share their findings and see how they are relevant in finding the right answer and finishing the quest from the room they need to escape from.

 

Communication, that’s a basic trait that all kids should develop and trough a room escape game, while being in a team, they will learn how to communicate, how to share what they discovered and thus, finish the quest, the task or the puzzle.

In a room escape game even parents will learn how to ask a question, but kids will be facing some puzzles where they need to ask questions from their teammates. Like this they will learn the importance of a well placed question and how the answer can help them solve a puzzle, a mystery or even an entire room from where they need to escape.

Asking for help is sometimes quite challenging not just for kids, but event for grownups. That’s why playing a room escape game with your kids it’s great way to teach them how to ask for help and that sometimes asking for help might just be the key in getting ahead.

Of course there are many other reasons why kids should play room escape games and that’s why we are inviting you to discover them by yourselves. Drop by and play in one of our three rooms with your kids and you’ll be able to help them develop and grow.

So, if you think your kid should take advantage and maybe even get ahead trough a fun experience, use the “ratrod” code to get a discount and visit us anytime.…

7 signs you are a room escape addict

 

We all love games, we play all sorts of games and we enjoy winning, but there are some games that show us that we can’t always win, and admit it, we all love to win. So, what’s to be done? Well … this means you might be an game addict, just like us, here at South Beach room escape.

There are different kinds of addictions to games and in my opinion the one that involves escape rooms is one of the best addictions. Let me explain why.

IMG_2994

For starters you love puzzles, I think that if you were in my shoes you’d find out the fun and satisfaction you get when you see a puzzle solved, when it’s all nice as a whole, or in pieces (depends on the puzzle type you love).

You enjoy mysteries, all those Agatha Christie books sitting in your bookcase are not for showoff, they were read, re-read and kept safe for you to recommend them to your friends. It’s what we would do at South Beach room escape if we would have a bookcase. And why not, we might even take you up on this and get a few Agatha Christie books in here.

Should I mention the movies you enjoy? All those mysteries, twists and turns of situation, those surprises and yes, the moment when you realise you were right and the first hunch was the right one.

You love discoveries? So do I and I’m a puzzle and escape room addict. So, do we have this in common also? I guess so. The thrill of discovering a new information, a new hint, a new solution to an existing problem, puzzle or lock is so thrilling and satisfying that you want to experience it every day. Oh, I’m right again? Cool, I love it when I’m right.

You love being right, you love to prove that your intuition, your gut are almost all the time right. Yes, this is also a sign that here at South Beach room escape you’ll fit in and could drive your team and friends to a awesome win.

Are you into surprises? Not really? I know, you already have an idea on what’s about to happen no matter how well the other person tries to hide it, to keep it a secret. You already know when a “secret” birthday party is coming, you already can imagine the people that were invited and yes, you kinda’ know what you’re gonna get. Here’s another sign that you love puzzles and room escape games.

You like to spend time with your friends? You’re one of the most active from the group? You like to organise, to prepare and plan all when it comes to a trip, outing or any other type of activities? Yes, you might just be great for a room escape game and could get addicted to them. I’m saying this because there are so many great leaders that excel at these games for one main reason: they …

You think Pokemon Go it’s addictive? Try an escape from the room game!

There’s the Pokemon Go hype of the last month that took over the States and then the whole world, but there should also be another hype about the escape from the room game. Why? Well, there are a few reasons.

Why an escape from the room game is so addictive

From the very first time you hear there are escape from the room games you might already have a hint about how these games work, but you’ll never be able to grasp the concept unless you get into one room and try to escape from it having a handful of hints and a limited time at your disposal.

Most people find it addictive because they are challenged in figuring out all the hints in the fastest time possible, this being driven by the competitive spirit we all have and which is lurking unsatisfied by a 9 to 5 job or by a routine performed day after day, week after week.

Pokemon in our lobby

Another reason, in my experience, is the fact that people want to discover new things; they want to feel the thrill of being the first to see, to try, to win and to brag about a certain thing. Let’s be honest, we all love a bit of adventure, a good thrill, the discovery of a way to escape from a room, even if it’s only a game.

There are a multitude of ideas, themes, etc. that can be implemented as a room from where to escape, but also there might be some ideas of room where you might need, or want, to break in (like our Diamond Heist room). This is a great reason to take it in consideration when you’re talking about the addiction of an escape from the room game. Imagine the fact that you’ll never find two rooms that look the same, that have the same hints, the same secrets, the same puzzles, etc. The variations possible are endless and thus, you’ll get hooked for sure.

Benefits

Don’t think that an escape from the room game is simple. There are a few things that might make it harder then you’d expect: the time that is limited (60 minutes), the communication barrier, the (sometimes) too subtle hints and the collaboration barrier.

There are many situations where people need to work well together and this is one of the most important ones. Just like in a company, sports team, family, etc., in an escape from the room game, you need to be an integral part of the whole in order to help it evolve and get to make profit, win the game, have fun and grow.

You might think that all of these reasons are not as addictive as an online virtual game? Visit us, try out a room and once you’ll do that, we are sure you’ll agree to all our reasons.

You’re still thinking that it’s not worth it? Here’s another reason: use the “ratrod” promo code and you’ll get a discount when you’ll drop by for …

What happens if you lose at escape the rooms games?

You think you will not be able to escape under the 60-minute time limit? It doesn’t matter; you will still have a lot of fun!

If you are planning your first trip to escape the rooms games, I would recommend calling before your visit to ask the staff about the level of difficulty of each escape room and choosing one on an easier level even if you are very competitive. You want to start with a game that will warm you up to your new addiction! The best escape the room games have an assigned leaderboard next to the door showing you the success rate and the record setting times for each group size allowed to play the game. This way, you have something to compare your performance to. Don’t get discouraged though, if you cannot set a new record. It only happens on rare occasions, especially for well-established escape the rooms games. A success rate is a percentage indicating the rate of groups successfully escaping the room under the allotted time limit. For example in a twenty percent success rate game, only one fifth of the groups who try the game can escape.…
