Strengthen Your Problem Solving Skills
Nothing strengthens your problem-solving skills better than being in an escape room. After all, 95% of what an escape room experience is, is problem-solving!
Each escape room experience is full of riddles, puzzles and problems for you to solve, either on your own or as a team.
Team Bonding Skills
Escape rooms are always done as a group, meaning you all have to work together or else none of you are getting out of there in time. This gives you all an opportunity to shine with each individual’s strengths and weaknesses.
Someone in the group will be excellent with math, another person will have the ability to think outside the box, and you may be the person that has the attention to detail, finding a clue that no one else could.
Improve Your Time Management Skills
In any escape room, you have no longer than one hour to complete the entire course, otherwise, you and your team have to hold up a giant “fail” sign!
In the duration of that course, you have up to 30 riddles and puzzles to solve, making this a very time restricted experience. As you work together, you all will need to make the best use of time by delegating tasks and each taking charge of solving your own puzzle.
Being constructive with your time won’t only help your team succeed, but it will also help each one of you develop better time management skills.
Believe it or not, when you put yourself in stress, it actually helps you to relieve stress in the long run.
It is like working a muscle in your body. The more you develop the ability to work with stress in a controlled environment, the more you are able to handle it when it comes on in other uncontrollable situations.
In an escape room, your heart is racing as you attempt to solve the problems in the time allotted. You’ll feel the right amount of “fun” stress, get your blood pumping, and have some fun!
All this hard work will also help you to sleep better at night, which is another component to a healthy, stress-free life!
