Escape The Winter Blues With Escape Rooms
The cold, dark months are upon us, and for most of us, that means fighting the urge to hibernate while dealing with moods that are decidedly not summery.
Beat the winter blues with Omescape London’s escape rooms. Keep reading to find out why you should visit us this season.
1. Escape Rooms Are Mood-Boosters
When you solve clues and complete puzzles in an escape room, the accomplishment triggers the release of a small amount of dopamine in your brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter known as the “happy hormone.”
In addition to making you feel happy, the neurotransmitter can make you feel alert, focused, and motivated.
2. Escape Rooms Improve Relationships
Whether family, friends, or colleagues join you in one of our escape rooms, the experience could improve your relationships. You’ll be working as a team to solve the puzzles and escape the room, which means communication, problem-solving skills, and teamwork come into play.
Yes, you’ll be focused on doing what you need to do to gain your freedom, but you’ll get to know one another better in the process.
3. Escape Rooms Exercise Cognitive Processes
Omescape London’s escape rooms offer you a brief escape from the real world.
The movie-like sets transport you into an alternate world where you’re forced to absorb new knowledge, to consider it critically, and to apply it using lateral thinking in solving clues and puzzles.
When you succeed, you give your cognitive processes a boost. This in turn can improve your ability to take new knowledge on board and to apply it critically and laterally in the real world.
4. Escape Rooms Are A Unique Form Of Entertainment
Another great reason to beat the winter blues with the escape rooms at Omescape London is because they’re highly entertaining and heaps of fun!
Each room offers a completely different scenario in which you and your teammates must race against the clock to escape. The clues and puzzles are challenging, and they suit the theme of the room. Unlike watching a movie, which is a passive activity, you get to play an active role in an adventure of your own.
