How do you feel about going back to everyday life? Is it going to be easy, or do you think we still have a long way to go?
As we find ourselves on the tail end of this pandemic, we are all eagerly looking forward to our lives going back to normal, or at least, as normal as possible.
We have all spent a few hard months cooped up inside our homes. Some of us have spent this time with our families, while others have been stuck at home all alone. Both situations had their pros and cons, but regardless of which group you happen to fall into, we had all started to miss our friends.
So What Can We Do About It?
It’s great that we are blessed with modern technology and have been able to stay in touch with people on a regular basis, but let’s be honest, nothing beats getting together and laughing face to face.
Now that all these lockdowns have started to ease up, we can finally start hanging out with close people we trust. It’s time to play again and have some fun!
Did you know that play triggers the release of “feel good” hormones such as dopamine, endorphins and serotonin? These hormones give us some amazing mental health benefits such as elevated mood, reduced stress and a feeling of being more alive.
Let’s face it, quarantine has taken a heavy toll on all of us, so a mood boost with some “feel good” hormones is just what the doctor ordered!
What Are Some Activities That Can Stimulate Your Mind?
There are many different activities that will stimulate your mind, some of them you can even do alone. Something as simple as doing crosswords or putting together a jigsaw puzzle is sure to spark your brain up. If you want something more hands-on, you can put together a Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon or even a model plane!
All of the above can be really engaging, but you know what? You’ve been doing things by yourself for long enough!
Games are always better when played with friends. So get them together and break out that Monopoly board or see who can conquer the world in a game of Risk. If you’re old school, go for a game of dominoes or throw down some cards. Even some classic party games will do the trick!
How About a Game That Will Activate Both Your Mind AND Body?
We couldn’t wait to see our friends just as much as you and we also love trying out new stuff. So here is another idea for something fun and exciting you can do together. Grab your favorite crew and come play one of our escape rooms!
In addition to being just plain fun, playing an escape room requires both logical and creative thinking which improves our brain’s functionality and stimulates creativity.
We have all been stuck behind screens and scrolling through our social media newsfeeds for too long. It’s time to get those mental juices flowing again with some real life excitement and thrill!
An escape room’s teamwork nature also taps straight into our human desire for social and physical interaction which we have been starved of over these past few months. This makes our escape rooms a wonderful bonding experience that you and your friends will remember for a long time to come.
What About Travel?
If you’re like us, nothing can lift your spirits like packing up and travelling to amazing distant places. Unfortunately, considering the current situation, it’s more likely that we will all be staying where we are, at least for the next few months.
Most countries are not yet ready to fully open their borders. Many people have also taken a hard hit financially, so a vacation is out of the question this summer. Others are still a bit scared to go anywhere, so they will just play it safe and wait until next year.
But you know what? We have the next best thing. If you come play Tesla’s Mystery, you can travel back in time to 1943 and the famous New Yorker Hotel! Or, you can play our Bunker and journey to the peak of the Cold War to try to save the world from total destruction.
It’s not a beach in the Bahamas, but it will definitely get your heart racing!
Are We Ever Going to Stop Thinking About the Coronavirus?
We have all been bombarded by news about the pandemic these past few months like practically no other topic in recent history. It’s seems like the only thing everyone is talking about and it’s really hard to get it out of our minds.
One of the best things we can do right now is try to escape reality for a bit and just stop thinking about it. Playing an escape room is one of the best ways to do this!
Solving riddles and hands-on puzzles while being drawn into an immersive story is perfect for letting go of our everyday thoughts. If you have ever played any escape room game in your life, you know that it means 1 hour – reality OFF! Only pumping of adrenaline and frequent bursts of laughter.
It’s important to remember that we shouldn’t get reckless and carried away until the entire corona situation has been brought completely back to normal. So, we should all still stick to our common sense and continue to take necessary safety precautions.
We want you to know that we are still applying all the necessary safety measures at our facility as we did when this whole situation began.
All of our rooms and guest areas are thoroughly disinfected between every session. We have plenty of hand sanitizer and protective gear is still available for anyone who wants to use it. We also intend to maintain social distancing recommendations, so you will never have to run into other players on our premises.
Most importantly, all of our rooms are private, which means that you will never be playing with strangers, but only with those who you know and love!
Our game masters are all geared up and ready for you, so come see us!
It’s time for some action!
It’s safe to play with us!
