The beginning of October is not only marked by leaves changing color and the air getting cooler. October also kicks off with two special days that mean a great deal to us.
October 1st is Escape Room Day! It’s a day we celebrate the birth of escape rooms and everything the industry has become to this day.
Since their first appearance in 2007, the industry has grown to around 14,000 escape room businesses worldwide, offering an estimated 50,000 individual games!
Escape rooms are known by many different names around the world. Real Life Escape Games, Exit Games, Room Escape Games… Whatever you may like to call them, they have become a very special form of entertainment enjoyed by millions of people around the world.
But escape rooms are more than just a game.
Their intriguing settings let you feed your curiosity as you search for clues, unlock mysteries and discover hidden meaning behind symbols. They spark your creativity and make you think outside the box to solve unique and challenging tasks.
The complex puzzles of our escape rooms are also a great way to boost your brainpower and improve your memory capacity, as you have to remember certain information in order to use it later in the game.
Best of all, they are a chance to bond with your friends and loved ones while immersed in a captivating story, leaving the troubles of the real world behind. The joy and satisfaction of achieving a common goal through teamwork let you create unique memories that you will cherish for a long time to come.
Last but not least, escape rooms are a sure way to bring a smile to your face! Which brings us to our second special day…
October 2nd is World Smile Day! It’s the perfect day to open our hearts to the people around us, a day to extend little acts of kindness and bring a smile to their face.
Smiling alleviates stress, elevates our mood and even boosts our immune system. It triggers the release of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, endorphins and serotonin, which give us a rush of positive feelings and increase our sense of wellbeing.
If you want a little extra reason to smile, use our promo code EscapeRoomDay2020 to save $5/person on October 1st!
Come join us on these two special days. Let’s celebrate them together and bring more smiles into the world!
