5 Reasons for an Escape Room Family Night Out!

It really is time for you to change things up a bit for family game nights. Sprinkle a little more spice; inject a little more fun juice. And really, the best way to do that is trying out a real life escape game. If you are on the east coast and around the DC area, you are in luck, because the best escape room DC is right around the corner: Insomnia Escape Room DC.

“If you do one escape room, you’ll want to do more of them,” said Rapid Escape owner, Sherri Brosmire.

Here are five reasons you should try real life escape games with your family:

  1. Memories

You build memories at home; you can build memories when you’re trying out escape rooms with your parents and your siblings.

  1. Keep away from the screens

You see your family members on their phones or watching something all the time, and in some way, they are using their intelligence as they do these. Why not bring them to an escape room and see them put their intelligence into some real life adventures?

  1. Let the young ones be the cool ones

Your kids will go to school the next day and they’ll be able to tell everyone about how smart they were when they solved a certain puzzle in an escape room. That alone is reason enough to head down to a real life escape game right this moment.

  1. Win Together, Triumph Together

An after party after playing the game! You can already hear the hoots of your father and the cheers of your siblings when you come out of the room with a win. But even if you lose, you can still tease about the one person who was silly enough to open the door knowing it was locked.

  1. Let them surprise you

You can honestly be surprised by how intelligent and how quick-witted your family members can be when you see them help your entire family escape the room.
