On the surface, an escape room might not sound like a good time. You pay a bunch of money to get locked in a room with no windows with other people. But once you have experienced it, you are going to be hooked.

Escape rooms allow you to show off your puzzle-solving skills and there will be an adrenaline rush to be sure.

Most of us lead rather busy lives in which we go to work, take care of the kids, mow our lawn and so forth. Busy as you might be, most of us must admit our existence is pretty boring. That is, you can’t expect an adventure to pop up while you are sitting at your workstation typing an email to accounting. In fact, about the only really exciting things that happen in your life have to do with buying something expensive or reaching a new milestone, like an anniversary, for example.

And as fun and exciting as those events may be, they fall well short of being adventurous. If it is an adventure that you crave, then you must head to MindBreak in Norwich and experience one of our escape rooms. Here are a few reasons why they are so popular.

Pop Culture Connections

A number of escape rooms include references to popular culture. Some escape rooms may reference a popular movie while others might have you experience some other cultural obsession. For example, you might feel as though you are stuck in the 1980s.

There are escape rooms in which you will feel like you are actively taking part in something that you loved a long time ago. It will leave you feeling nostalgic.

Group Connections

You spend much of your day glued to a computer monitor or to your smartphone, which when you think about it is not very fun. In this age of technology, the human connection has really suffered. Why speak to somebody face to face when it is easier to just text them.

Escape rooms bring people closer by forcing them to have to communicate and work together to solve puzzles and work towards a common goal. The sense of accomplishment and community fostered by this experience is really difficult to replicate in our everyday lives.

Gain Control

After a long day at work where you are stuck in a demoralizing job, you turn on the news and feel totally helpless against all of the negativity in the world. You see people who simply don’t rise to the occasion when the situation calls for it, they choose to do what is in their best interests.

Escape rooms offer something that people just don’t see very often, if at all; the opportunity to be a hero. And escape room enables you to indulge in a fantasy that pulls you in and makes you forget about the real world and all of its problems.

If there is any reason to escape the real world, it is so you can connect with the person you want to be.
