Escape games are a brilliant idea for a date night. They have proven to be an excellent activity for team buildings, groups of friends, families, and nevertheless couples.
Whether you guys are recently dating or are in a long-term partnership, letting yourselves transported for 60 minutes into a new world playing an exciting game in real-time it’s a brilliant idea!
It is an exciting way of getting to know the other person and testing some of their skills for the new couples. For the established ones, it is a different kind of getting out of your regular routine.
My first escape game experience was in 2017 with a guy I was dating at that time, and I have to tell you it was super fun! First of all, because it was the first time to try this kind of leisure activity and second because I was there with my date and it was so cool for a change.
I remember we really enjoyed it. It was a great idea (mine :P) to spend time together, doing something else rather than the ordinary.
The first escape game took place 14 years ago in Kyoto. Since that time, this became a popular trend all over the world, and it’s still going strong,
Only in Dubai, If I’m not wrong, we have around 10 escape games shops. So plenty to try. But of course, I will have my personal recommendation down below.
Here Are A Few Reasons Why I Think Having A Date Night At An Escape Games Shop Is A Unique Idea
Long-term, short-term couples, it doesn’t matter. The only way to solve the mind puzzles and find your way out is by joining forces and working as a team.
So you will have to be something like the ultimate dream team that for 60 minutes are facing those challenges together, and both are working towards a common goal. To escape in one hour … or even less.
This skill requires cooperation, communication, and support from both sides.
BUILD COMMUNICATION SKILLS
Speaking about communication, you will enhance and improve how you address each other in a completely different environment.
SPEND TIME TOGETHER IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SCENARIO
How many times have you been out for dinner, movies, seeing friends, going to the beach, or taking a road trip? Countless, right? Almost every weekend.
Escape games are a very creative way for a date night that will take you out of your comfort zone and put you together with your better half in front of situations never experienced before.
When I tried the first time an escape game with my partner, I felt like I was part of my own movie where I was writing the script. Pretty damn exciting and unique sensation 😉
YOU’LL SHOW YOUR ADVENTUROUS SIDE
It’s not a bad idea to see – at least for fun – how the other person reacts in a stressful situation when the clock is ticking, and they have to solve the puzzles in a 60 min time constraint. Or at least you will figure if they are willing to try new things.
It’s also a smart way to see if you guys click and check the other person’s vibe.
CREATE GREAT MEMORIES
There will be so much to laugh and talk about after that. And let’s not forget the cool pictures you will have after that for a lifetime.
First dates are always more sensitive and can even be awkward.
Such activities proved that they are very efficient as an ice breaker for new daters. You will have the chance to know about each other’s personalities and character, and you will have the opportunity to break the ice and create an atmosphere of friendship and trust with your date.
A memorable date is not about the money you take out of your pocket or the fancy restaurant you are going but quality and creativity. And an escape room date is the perfect way to get great value for your spending.
IT’S A WHOLE LOAD OF FUN
An escape room is all about having quality time together, getting out of your routine, or just using it as a fun opportunity to know each other better.
Even if you don’t escape and finish the game, it’s all about the good times and memories you are creating together.
In the end, it’s not about winning but the fun you’ll have to play those games.
