Escape Rooms on Valentines Day?

Coming up with new date night ideas or fun nights out with your partner can be difficult at times, especially around Valentines Day. You want something that both you and your partner can enjoy, that will be memorable and will be unique to all other Valentines days. 


What is an escape room?


Usually for bigger groups, escape rooms are an experience for everyone to enjoy. Solve a series of puzzles, riddles and clues to escape the room within the hour. While yes, these are for bigger groups, there is nothing stopping a couple from taking up the challenge of an escape room! 

Why choose an Escape Room?

Escape rooms can be the perfect date night idea because they offer a unique experience while also helping to strengthen your relationship.There is nothing that brings people together like overcoming a challenge. Luckily, escape rooms offer you and your date the opportunity to work through a puzzle together almost immediately. Not only can you both leave the experience with a sense of accomplishment (and hopefully plans for another date!), but you can also better understand how you work together and choose to communicate. 

Escape rooms are a great option for everyone from first dates to those who have been married for 20 years (or more!). For First dates, escape rooms allow you to get to know one another while doing an activity that doesn’t leave much time for awkward silences or nervousness. For veteran couples, escape rooms can offer a different experience, one you may never have done before, allowing you to keep learning about each other in new ways.
