Escape Room experience date

I recently took my hubby on a little date day to experience an escape room – I love being able to involve him in activities to do with my blog, and this one was certainly something different from the norm. Being a blogger and having a young family means our weekends are usually jam-packed with activities, but this one was not like anything we’ve ever done before!  

Escape rooms are hot right now – it seems everyone is talking about them. Lots of my friends and family have done them and loved them, so I was really excited to try one out.

What is an Escape Room?
If you’re one of the few people who hasn’t heard about the popularity of escape rooms, the experience basically involves being locked in a game floor with only one hour to work out how to free yourself: not for claustrophobic s! You’ll be presented with puzzles and problem-solving games to help you escape – it’s a race against the clock. 

The Theme
Our theme for the day was ‘Avatar - The Secret of Pandora’I won’t give too much away in case you decide to go, but basically the Avatar theme puts you in the year 2090 and the earth is in crisis! Ebola-X virus is threatening the world and everyone must earn their survival. Our role was as part of a team of scientists who travel back to the Pandora Moon and retrieve information from an abandoned lab that holds the key to curing the virus. 

The Verdict
We loved it! It was a real lesson in communication and teamwork – it would be fantastic for groups of friends or even colleagues and co-workers. Hubby and I were able to communicate well, thank goodness! It really taught us to stop and work together – a nice break from being glued to our smartphones, for sure. 

Try One Yourself
Currently Break The Code are offering a Easter deal, so you can try an escape room yourself for less. During the Easter break, one member of your team can get in for free – perfect for families. Bring everyone* along and get stuck in something fun together, and keep your kids’ minds active even during the school break. 

*Note: escape rooms are suitable for ages all ages of kids - and kids under 12 get offered a discounted rate. 


Have you tried one of these?
