Put an Escape Room on Your Post Lockdown To-Do List

Posted on 2020-08-01 by escapetheapp.

For puzzle enthusiasts, the thought of being shut in between the four walls of an escape room is one that sparks delight, anticipation, joy, happiness and just a touch of excited nervousness. And yet, the real-life version of lockdown didn’t quite have the same effect. The difference, of course, is that COVID-19 hasn’t been something we could escape, and even if we could, there hasn’t been a ‘real world’ we could escape to.

But now, things are changing. As COVID-19 becomes increasingly under control, regulations are easing and many restrictions are slowly but surely starting to be lifted. And so, if you’ve been climbing the walls and you’re eager to move on, what better way to celebrate this metaphorical escape than with a real-life escape experience?

Bubbles of Fun

Everyone is emerging from lockdown at a different rate, and everyone’s post lockdown to-do list will look vastly different. And yet, an escape room experience is an activity that can be enjoyed regardless of your level of comfort in returning to a new normal.

If you’re keen to maintain your family bubble for the time being, there is perhaps no better activity that one that purposefully keeps you locked up with your loved ones, away from the crowds, away from strangers, and away from people outside your bubble. Or if you’re excited to start building up your social life once more and get together with friends, an escape room provides an opportunity to really support each other and work together following months and months of isolation and quarantine. If there’s one thing that COVID-19 has shown us, it’s that humans really are pack animals; we’re generally happier when we’re surrounded and supported by friends and family.

Put Your New Skills to Good Use

If you need any more convincing that an escape room experience is the perfect post lockdown activity, then how about this? If you’ve been furloughed during lockdown, or if you’ve simply been spending more time at home, you might have been putting your extra leisure hours to good use by learning new skills or by expanding your mind. And an escape room really is the ideal opportunity to put these cool new skills to good use.

And if you’re still not convinced, we’ll leave you with one final thought: escape rooms aren’t just about escaping the room. Filled with puzzles, perplexities, and mysteries, they’re also a way to occupy your mind and help you escape from reality. And after spending months in lockdown, couldn’t we all do with a little much-needed escape?
