Why Escape Rooms Are the Perfect Night Out For Family Fun


Failing an escape room can leave you and the rest of the participants laughing at themselves.


Have you reached a point as a mother where you just don’t know where to take your kids when you all have a free night to spend together? It could be that all your ideas are too boring for the kids. And the ones that aren’t may be either too expensive or too stressful. So where does that leave you? Well, if you’re lucky enough to have one near you, and you probably do because of how popular they are becoming, an escape room can be a great way for fun, quality time together with your family.

If you haven’t yet heard of them, escape rooms are a type of entertainment where a group of people is locked in a room and told to solve a series of puzzles before they can leave. They have only a predetermined amount of time to finish the puzzles to win the game. Winning usually entitles the team to some small prizes, but the thrill of the game is the real prize. And it is the ideal experience for you and your kids to enjoy together. No matter where you are in the world, you can find a great variation in this activity; even an Escape Room in Dubai is available to you. For the following reasons, you and your family will have the time of your lives in an escape room near you.

Just Like the Movies

It’s likely that your kids are fans of Hollywood thrillers and the last-second escapes that often are a hallmark of those films. (Most likely you are too.) Escape rooms give you the chance to vicariously experience that kind of rush and be the heroes of your own film. Instead of being a passive participant in entertainment, you and the kids can get out from in front of a screen and actively get involved with the fun you’re having.

Working Together

One of the best things about doing an escape room as a family is that it gives you the opportunity to be a unit all in the service of the same goal. It’s the kind of bonding experience that no other type of entertainment can match. And it gives you all the chance to work on the same level, instead of them seeing you as the Mom and you see them as the kids. That kind of blurring of familial roles can only help bring you all closer together.

Everyone Will Love It

As stated above, it is extremely difficult for families to find common ground when it comes to deciding what they want to do together. If all of the family doesn’t agree, it’s likely that they won’t be entirely into it, which can ruin the enjoyment of the others. An escape room has the potential to be a great time for all ages in the family, no matter what their separate interests might be.

So if you’re at a loss for what to do when you all have a night together, don’t forget about escape rooms. They’ll give you the kind of time you won’t soon forget.
