Entertainment that is healthy for the brain while creating unforgettable moments? Training skills,  used in everyday’s life? This is actually possible in Escape Room games! But what advantages does such an escape game bring exactly? We will deal with topic here and persuade you to challenge your brain more often!

Escape The Room experience - what happens to your brain during the game

Tension and beautiful realistic atmosphere are not the only things that awaits you in an escape room. Each puzzle room has characteristic differentiated puzzles that require a certain amount of mental effort. Not only the search and thus the sense of sight (sometimes also the sense of hearing and even the sense of touch) are important in the game, above all you have to concentrate and use your mind. At the same time, the unique concept calls for diversity, so you will not be confronted with the same tasks that you have had to solve for the last time. However, if you did work according to such a scheme, you are guaranteed to end up in a dead end. While it's true that the routine of playing Escape Games helps with becoming faster, you should not assume that you already know the procedures and puzzles just because you have played such games a few times. Escape Rooms develop extremely fast as well as the type of technology used within them.

In such a game you need abstract thinking, logical thinking and estimating the consequences of your actions. You also train manual skills to get to the next step in the game.
This is how we use mental power that we do not always need in our daily lives: there are no instructions (and some of us always work under instructions), so we need to try to find a solution on our own, relay on our intuition and our team mates. So trying out and devising solutions is inevitable.

Can skills learned in the Escape Room also be used in everyday life?

Naturally! Just as a mathematician will use his knowledge in the math puzzle in the Escape Room, so it works the other way around! Especially creative and autonomous thinking is an important treasure that can be gained while playing. Creating solutions outside of one's own comfort range is important for individual work and teamwork. To bring in new, different or other perspectives will be noticed positively by your employers and be welcomed! Quick combination skills, understanding of context and a holistic perspective not only save time, but also help in stressful situations. "Effective activity" and working under time pressure are important skills, always and everywhere.

Secret Escape experience - educational games for adults and children
Escape The Room can also be successfully viewed as an "educational" game for children and adults. In teamwork there are many opportunities to test abilities and skills, to learn from others and to learn new things. The exercise also increases team effectiveness as well as teamwork. Remembering, recognizing and working together on one goal will have a positive effect on the team spirit of the individual in everyday life.

Puzzles are always associated with an exciting and extraordinary feeling that many people  will like. Here cognitive functions are used in a natural and not forced way. So the brain is kept fit and trained for everyday life. Learning by playing (in a highly entertaining way) brings benefits for young and old. Of course, no-one will do an Escape The Room game just to train their brains - but still take advantage of this positive side effect.
