Dating is hard enough as it is. We get it. Whether it's the first or 100th date - traditional ideas can be a total snooze. How many times can you have coffee together or sit through a movie? It’s time to switch things up with an escape room date! Escape rooms are a unique experience that will leave you with lasting memories - what more could you want out of a romantic experience? Let’s look at 10 reasons why an escape room is an amazing date idea.
1: You Can Skip the Small Talk
First dates can be awkward. Fumbling over a coffee cup listing off your skills and interests can feel forced and weird. Choosing an escape room for a date gets rid of the need to fill the silence. You and your partner will be breaking the ice before you even realize it!
2: It Builds Your Bond as a Couple
At Questroom, we require a minimum of two players since most of our puzzles need two people to be solved and all of our rooms CAN be accomplished with two players. This gives you the perfect reason to work together as a couple and build your collaborative bond. You two will become closer once you’ve made it out!
3: An Escape Room Date Night is a Creative Idea
Choosing an escape room for a date is a very creative idea that’s sure to wow your partner. It’s a great option if you’re tired of going to the movies, or an addition to the movies! Questroom is right across from an AMC theater, so you can do both! Since most of our rooms are an hour long, you can plan a movie or dinner around it.
4: Great for a Couple or for Groups
Double dates can be hard to plan. Escape rooms are a great choice because everyone gets involved! Everyone can take on a different role, and when you’re in an escape room it’s always better to have more minds to collaborate with.
5: You Can Demonstrate Your Wit and Resourcefulness
An escape room date night is the perfect place to demonstrate your value. You’ll be able to impress your partner with your problem solving skills, and quick wit!
6: An Escape Room Date Night is a Unique Marriage Proposal Option
It may surprise you, but at Questroom From Amnesia, to DaVinci's Challenge to Warlocked- we've seen many. If you’re a couple that likes to live on the edge, an escape room could be the perfect choice for your special day.
Planning a proposal at Questroom? We recommend Warlocked, Malediction, Red Giant, and Davinci’s Challenge. Give us a call and we will help you plan it all out. Our managers LOVE organizing these special moments.
7: You’ll See How Your Partner Acts Under Stress
When you’re dating, it’s important to get to know how the person will react in different situations. Rarely do you get to see your partner under stress when you’re at the movies. Relationships that go the distance will be faced with rough patches, and an escape room could give you insight into how they’ll act in a real stressful situation.
8: Get a Rush of Adrenaline
You don’t have to go skydiving to get your blood pumping. If you’re looking to get a rush without doing something extreme, an escape room date night is the perfect middle ground. No one has to jump out of a plane, but you’ll still get an adrenaline rush from trying to get out.
9: Create a Precious Memory
Dates should be memorable, and that’s exactly what you’ll get at an escape room! How could you forget the time you worked together to escape near death as a couple? You’ll even get a photo to commemorate the occasion that you can cherish for years to come!
10: Choosing an Escape Room for a Date is Fun!
At the end of the day, dating should be fun! The most memorable dates are those that are full of excitement and adrenaline. You may not remember every time you’ve sat across from each other at a restaurant, but you’ll definitely remember the time you chose an escape room for a date!
Best Rooms for a First Date
Planning a first date can be tricky, but Questroom has you covered! We have escape rooms for everyone from the horror film buff to the history enthusiast. We recommend:
If you like Scary: Resurrection.
