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.…

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.

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 …
