A Great Escape from Boredom for Family and Friends

Sometimes it can be hard for the family and friends to try and do something fun together. Parents plop in front of the TV, kids are glued to their tablets. Or you go out with your friends, but everyone’s texting away on their phones. And sure, you’re all hanging out, but don’t you wish you could all do something with each other? Of course, there’s always going out to the movies or a museum, but that’s all been done before. You want to escape from boredom.

You want something new. Something exciting.

Something fun and mysterious and full of adventure that everyone will love. You need to try an escape room.

A Great Escape

What, you may ask, is an escape room? An escape room involves being locked in a room for a limited amount of time and solving various puzzles to – you guessed it – escape. Family and friends must all work together to figure out the clues in a limited amount of time in order to break out.

There’s a mystery to solve or a story you’re a part of, so it’s like being in a live-action video game. Except everyone’s playing at once. You all get a starring role. And since you must riddle your way out of the room as a team, everyone gets a shot to help out and discover their inner detective and escape from boredom.

It gets you talking to each other, and you may even learn something new! Maybe your cousin is actually a Sherlock Holmes in disguise, or maybe your best friend will uncover a penchant for puzzle-solving, or maybe you realize you all just really love escape rooms.

There are even differently themed rooms to explore – so one day your friends might feel like escaping a haunted prison you’ve somehow ended up locked in, and another evening you and your family might feel more like solving a murder based on a crime scene. The world of escape rooms is your oyster.

And the sweet, sweet taste of victory once you all escape? Priceless.

Lockology, An Escape From Your Couch

Looking forward to yet another action-packed day of social media?

Anticipating a rousing Saturday afternoon on the couch, watching the family stare at their phones?

Probably not.

What if you could give them all some real puzzles to work on, instead? In fact, what if you could bring together the satisfaction of puzzle-solving with some of the adrenaline of paintball? You can!

Lockology Escape Rooms offers exactly the solution to the social media zombie craze that your family needs! You’ll have to work together to find and examine clues in order to complete such disparate tasks as solving a ‘murder’ or simply escaping from a room into which you’ve all been locked. You can finally escape from your couch.

Yes, you can volunteer to have your entire family locked in a room together with only your collective problem-solving abilities to save you! Don’t laugh, it’s very likely you’ll have a blast!

All your family’s wits will be tested as you dig through the room, finding and using the tools at hand to decipher and assemble a variety of puzzle pieces, both physical and ephemeral. You’ll have to work together and keep level heads in order to get out under the time limit!

Those video-gaming skills your kids have been honing may actually have a real-world use. As a matter of fact, the Escape Room concept actually originated in video games so you or your kids may have some practical skills already, though you may not realize it.

This is an action-filled, real-world adventure that is fun for everyone and an excellent opportunity for your family to pull together and learn to better rely on each other. You’ll have a great time and go home with a much stronger sense of ‘family’ than you would have gotten from yet another night on social media. As a matter of fact, although the idea may be new to you, it’s likely your kids have already heard about Escape Rooms from friends. Take this opportunity to show your kids how much fun you can have while getting everyone off the couch for a few, fun-filled hours.

Go get locked in!
