After spending Halloween with your friends for many years, you may have exhausted the standard options at nighttime with activities such as zombie walks, haunted houses, and parties. But, you can organize an intense and enjoyable experience by going to an escape room.
Look for Appropriate Themes
Many escape rooms have their own unique themes to help with immersing the players into the game and to exercise their creativity. This means that you will find all sorts of themes ranging from modern detective to ancient history. To fit with Halloween, you should look for ones with a scary or supernatural theme.
It does not have to be advertised as a Halloween escape room as long as it relates to the holiday. If you are most interested in seeing your friends get immersed into the world of a themed escape room, you may even want to consider going to one on your own to get an idea of what to expect. This will help you focus on making sure your friends have a great time during your adventure.
Enjoy Adult Entertainment
When you go to a haunted house, you may expect to see teenagers going in. While it is fine when one of these spooky houses caters to teenagers, you may be interested in an adult experience. It may not provide you with any jump scares, but an escape room is excellent adult entertainment. You will find that going to this kind of place is the perfect transition while you get older.
Feel a Sense of Urgency
While you may feel a sense of urgency when in a haunted house because you want to find the exit, it is not the same kind of feeling that you get when experiencing an escape room. It will get your heart racing because you have limited time to solve each puzzle in a spookily-themed area.
A huge benefit of an escape room over a haunted house is that you will get a feeling of reward and satisfaction at the end if you solve the puzzles with your friends. If you have trouble the first time, it may become something that you work towards every year until you solve it fully.
An escape room may not be the typical place to go for Halloween, but it can provide you with an incredibly rewarding experience when you are able to bring your friends along for the ride.
