Escape rooms make for the perfect holiday season get-together

Most holiday season get together options are stressful to organize.


When it comes to organizing get-together for the holidays, most of us probably wish we could just sing…


O Come All Ye Family

Joyful For The Holidays

O Come Ye, O Come Ye, To Our Gathering


And everyone would just flock to our house and the merriment would begin.


But, as we know, it doesn’t work like that in reality.


Organizing a family event for the holidays can prove complicated, and at times, stressful.


Which is why it’s going to come as a pleasant surprise when I tell you that there’s one kind of event that can make for a great holiday get-together, and that is easy to organize.


And that is an escape room.

Quick recap - what is an escape room?

Escape rooms have gained popularity over the last few years, and you’ve probably heard of them.


Nevertheless, for the readers who haven’t, let’s do a quick walkthrough of what an escape room is. Feel free to skip this section if you want to.


An escape room game takes place inside the game area, which is one or more rooms that have been designed to simulate a dramatic situation like a military bunker where top secret missile codes might have been hidden.


You and your group will have to work together to accomplish a goal - like stopping a catastrophic missile launch from within the bunker.


This you have to do by solving puzzles, doing tasks, and spotting clues on how to proceed.




And finally, there’s a time limit - usually 60 minutes - within which you have to accomplish your goal, and win the game.


Think of it as a real-life adventure that takes place indoors.


Right, with that in mind, let’s take a look at what makes escape rooms an awesome idea for a holiday get-together.

It’s a one-of-a-kind experience

Escape rooms do offer a unique experience.

A quirky, unique get-together.


Are you really going to tell me that you’ve never dreamed about going on a military mission, to break into a top secret bunker and stop a looming missile strike?


Or about having to mastermind a breakout from a maximum security prison?


I’ve just described two of Seattle’s top escape room games to you…and it’s a fair bet I have your attention.


Escape rooms combine strategy, quick thinking, and excitement in one package, and that’s what makes them captivating experiences.


Don’t take it from us. Take it from TripAdvisor.


Last year, we were awarded the 2021 Traveler’s Choice Award by Tripadvisor for being able to “constantly deliver fantastic experiences to travelers from around the world over the past 12 months”.


Offering us a break from the drudgery reality of our daily lives, and that’s what makes them great for a get-together event!

It’s a shared experience

Escape games are a group activity.

You must have noticed I’ve been talking in terms of ‘you and your group’ whenever I referred to taking part in an escape room.


That is because escape rooms are designed to be a group activity and a shared experience. In fact, escape room team building is very popular among corporations, non-profits, schools, and so on.


You have to collect objects - like keys and cards - from all around the room and figure out where they should be used.


A puzzle or a task itself might be dispersed, and require simultaneous action from various places around the room.


In short, it’s not just about creative thinking and problem solving. You have to communicate with other people in your group, and collaborate with them actively, to be able to win.


Doesn’t that make it a great activity for a get-together?


Everyone will have to take part, and actively engage with one another. That’s a hallmark of a good get–together.

It’s a compelling experience

Being actively engaging, escape rooms compel active participation.

Even THAT person will actively take part in the fun.


Sometimes, what happens at a get-together is that after the initial hugs and bonhomie, many of the people drift apart to separate corners.


Worse, some even bury themselves in their phones.


That’s not going to happen in an escape room.


One, phones are not allowed inside escape rooms.


More importantly, an escape room inspires every player to actively take part in the proceedings. Passively standing by is not an option.

It’s easy to organize

Yep, there’s very little for you to do, if you’re opting for an escape room get-together.


If you have a smaller group, you can just go ahead and book rooms. It’s as simple as booking a movie ticket.


For larger groups, or if you have any special request, you can get in touch with the escape room, and if possible, they’ll take it up.

What now?

It's time to make that booking.
