What are Escape Rooms?

Escape Rooms are extremely popular both here and across the pond, but we realise that not all of you have caught on yet to what Escape Rooms are. So, we decided that today would probably be a good idea to explain exactly what they are. 

Escape Rooms are all about having fun.

If you’re new to escape rooms then we’re more than happy to fill in the blanks. If you book a room with us and of course once you’ve paid us a visit, you really will start to realise why they’re so popular. We’re going to use this opportunity to take you round the Escape Rooms and you’ll soon see why they’re your next visit. 

Locked in, and everything to play for.

The game is devised around one single room where a team of people are locked in together. Between them they must find a series of clues and puzzles in order to get out. What’s great about this is that everyone has to communicate and work together, so there’s no ignoring or freezing anyone out, it’s a team game. Don’t bring anyone dominant with you because everyone should have the opportunity to be able to take part. 

One hour to test yourself.

You only have an hour, and in that hour, you’ll have to think on your feet and search every corner. That’s what makes it so much fun, because the only way you’re getting out is if you work out the clues and puzzles which are all carefully concealed around the room. You’re working against the clock and who knows, you could lose. If you do it’s not the end of the world because you can always try again. Yes, we get customers coming back all the time, they really enjoy the experience, and it’s not always because they failed first time. 

Themed rooms full of curiosity.

The themes of each room are based around a theme from popular culture, it could be anything from Sherlock Holmes to Area 51, or Harry Potter, Casino or Prison Break. Which one would you prefer? Whichever one you choose, you’ll be immersed in your chosen theme and everything from chairs to beds to shelves will fully embrace the room’s themes. 

Escape Leicester – for the ultimate room with a view.

Now you know what Escape Rooms are for, why not try them for yourself? We know you’re going to love every second you’re here and all you have to do in order to book a room is to either pick up the phone, or book online. It’s a simple process and once it’s done that’s it. All you have to do is turn up with your friends and enjoy the experience. We can’t wait to see you here!

The Benefits of Brain Teasers and Puzzles

We’re talking about the benefits of brain teasers and puzzles, and we know there’s been a lot of talk about how good they are for your brain. They are, but we think they really benefit anyone really who wants to stay mentally active and stay social. Sometimes life can be hard, and we can often find ourselves feeling isolated and alone, but with our escape rooms here’s a game that helps you on two levels.

Bringing People Together

In order to play you have to have at least 2 people and no more than 6, this is good because it helps you to interact with others, to stay in touch with those you haven’t seen in a while, and help break the day up if you don’t see many people the rest of the time. If for instance you’re self-employed, you may not get much opportunity to talk during the course of a day, Escape Rooms gives you a chance to interact with friends and family – and offers a refreshing change from your own company.

Keep the Mind Active

Helping to get that adrenaline going, endorphins pumping and all in all, helping you to have some healthy neural activity. Sometimes, when we don’t use our analytical, problem-solving skills and logical thinking, our brains can get a little sluggish, but by taking part in brain teasers and puzzles regularly we can help sharpen our mental skills and stay mentally alert. If you’re looking for a new job, hoping to try out a new course and you feel out of it, then by spending time in a game like ours, it may not only help to improve your logical and analytical skills, but also improve your self-confidence.

Doing Puzzles at Home

Puzzles you can do at home are great as they are another way of staying busy and helping to keep our minds sharp. However, by actually leaving your home and coming to an escape room challenge, you’re socialising, getting out and about and interacting with friends and family. Confidence is important whether in work or leisure, and by taking part in a game, if only for an hour out of your day, is going to help build your confidence back up. 

Escape Games are For Everyone

Escape games aren’t just for the self-assured and confident, or for the successful and career savvy strategist, our games are for everyone.  And they provide a way of socialising, interacting and keeping minds sharp, regardless of age or status. The escape games phenomena has democratised gaming and made it an equal playing field where everyone can take part. 

You don’t have to be a computer whizz or a virtual reality expert, all you have to be is an enthusiastic game player, someone who loves testing their mind and their skills. If you enjoy playing a game that’s played against the clock, then this is the best one by far, that’s played away from the home or office, with other people - and one that actually requires people to talk to each other!
