Andy Murray, too, is a known fan of escape rooms and even did an interview whilst solving one!
What’s The Big Fuss?
If you’re wondering why so many celebs are getting involved with escape rooms and why they’re popularity is constantly on the rise, we’ve got some insight:
- Escape from reality – Whilst you’re trying to escape the rooms, you’re also escaping from reality. For an hour or so, you’re immersed in a different world, and everything else going on outside of that room drifts away. Sounds nice, right?
- Focus on the task – Many people have said that focusing on the clues and challenges creates a meditative state, where the only thing you’re thinking about is the task at hand.
- Work together – It’s nice to have a game where you’re working with your friends and family, rather than against them. It can bring you all together and is a great bonding experience.
- It’s fun! – It’s as simple as that; escape rooms are fun! The puzzle-solving, the adrenaline rush as you try and beat the clock, and the joy when you find a clue are all part of what makes these games so popular.
