Walking on the beach at sunset, going for dinner and a movie, staying in for a home-cooked meal.  All these things are fun and exciting date ideas… that have been done hundreds of times. More and more people have been looking for new and fun things to do while on a date. Whether you’re looking to go on a first date with someone new or looking for something to do on you 50th anniversary, an Escape Room could be a great choice.

When choosing something for a date, there is a plethora of things that you need to keep in mind.  First and foremost is: talking. An important aspect of a date is the ability to bond and communicate with your partner. With escape rooms, communication is a MUST and can often lead the conversation down paths that differ from the norm.

Have you ever wondered what your significant other would do in the middle of a nuclear holocaust? An escape room may clue you in!

Escape rooms are one of the fastest growing entertainment experiences in America for a reason! These rooms offer a great chance for everyone to get out of their comfort zone and truly experience an out-of-this-world situation. Who wouldn’t want to experience being a world-renowned detective? Or perform extensive heart transplant surgery? It not only allows you and your date to truly get in the competitive spirit, but also allows record-breakers to become immortalized on a leaderboard that you can come by and see when you come back to try another escape room theme.

One of the greatest aspects of escape rooms is the fact that the experience can be customized based on your needs. If you feel that you’re a bit isolated from the world and just want to meet some new people, you and your significant other can choose a public event where you can be matched with other escape room adventurers like yourself.

Getting to know new people and learning to work together is half of the fun! If meeting new people isn’t your thing, most companies have procedures in place to have a private event. This allows couples some alone time to spend in Paris with their loved ones or to explore 18th century Britain.  The best part about private events is the ability for you to take part in solving every puzzle in the room.

Escape rooms are often used for team building experiences but can also be used to strengthen the bonds of a relationship much like that of coworkers or classmates.  Whether it’s your first date or your hundredth, an escape room may be the perfect answer to your date idea rut.
