Escape rooms for school students are the new gaming trend these days, but how can it be the best of school outing ideas for students? Let’s see how.
We’ve all experienced it (in fact, some of us are still there); idly sitting at our desks bored out of our minds, staring aimlessly at the clock as it ticks away and waiting to escape the room to the games period. Our teacher speaking in a monotone, mostly a discussion to which we never responded and waited for bell’s gong. We did play a lot of outdoor games in our childhood and if we found them appealing with the right company, we would be out playing for hours at a stretch. Games like Kho-Kho, Lock n’ Key, Dumbsharas and Hide n’ Seek were the favorites. Even though we were aware of the fact that cricket was the most popular sport played across the country and was enjoyed by one and all, we did have our personal favorites.
Ever thought of playing Hide n’ Seek in a locked room? Does being locked in a room for a specified time during which you must escape using teamwork, puzzle solving and communication sound intriguing? Have you ever visited an escape room or heard of these physical adventure games? If your answer is yes, then keep reading because you may want to learn how this popular game can benefit you when you’re at school!
