Quest rooms, better known as “escape rooms” can be intimidating for the uninitiated. Why would someone want to spend a couple of their hard-earned bucks and an hour of their precious time trying to solve escape room puzzles for adults?

Skepticism is completely normal for an out-of-the-box type of experience like an adult escape room! Today, our mission to is put your mind at ease, answer all questions a newbie might have, and break common misconceptions revolving around escape rooms.

A Common Quest Room Question: “Why do people pay for stress?”

Believe it or not, one of the most common questions we get is: “Are escape games for adults  just a source of stress and jump scares?”

To answer the first part of the question, yes, room puzzle games can be frustrating, especially at higher difficulty levels, but escape rooms are definitely not stressful! In fact, it can be quite the opposite. Many escape room enthusiasts find that joining escape rooms can be cathartic and an effective stress reliever. For first-timers, we recommend trying out lower difficulty levels.

Back to the second part of the question, are all escape rooms scary? Definitely no. Though escape rooms can be an emotional roller coaster, not all are designed to be scary that will make you want to rush for the exit! Escape rooms are appropriate for families with children. But with a full spectrum of crazy emotions to experience, horror fans will still find niche escape room concepts that will satisfy their craving for a good scare! Just take a look at a few of Maze Rooms’ unique concepts for both types of players.

Escape rooms on the scarier side:

Another common question from the more practical and economical first-timers: “Are escape room games for adults worth the time and the money?” Well, ask yourself this. How much more would it cost and how much more time would you spend at a theme park compared to an escape room?

Being able to escape the puzzle room offers instant gratification. You only need to spend 1 hour and less than half of what you would usually pay for at a popular amusement center!

The main point of escape rooms is in the name itself: ESCAPE!

So if escape rooms are not overtly scary, stressful, expensive, and time-consuming, what is still the point? To sum it up in one word, escape rooms give you an ESCAPE as no other experience will.
