3 things you probably didn’t know about escape rooms

It all started with video games

Escape rooms are the physical equivalents of computer escape games. It’s a relatively new concept, the first was opened by Takao Kato in Kyoto in 2008, after which it became widely popular in Japan and Singapore. In parallel with its spread in the Far East, the first rooms in Budapest, Hungary were also opened, based on the theory of Mihály Csíkszentmihályi’s Flow.

Solving puzzles gives you a happiness boost – scientifically proven!

Yep, it's really that simple. The Flow experience is, in short, a state of functioning of your brain in which you are completely immersed in what you do, concentrate, and completely surrender to the process, and therefore, when you successfully solve it, you feel bursting joy, even euphoria. Since physical reality escape games bind all your senses, you have a much better chance of experiencing this sensation there than sitting in front of a computer.

It’s not worth going in alone

We’ve talked about this in countless articles, but escape rooms offer the best experience if you have a decent team. Besides team sports and work, this level of cooperation is not required anywhere else. Get to know your friends and family better, seize the opportunity to see them in a way as never before.
