Why Escape Rooms Make the Perfect Gift

Winter is on its way, and with it comes all the festive fun, family gatherings and presents that make Christmas such a special time. From yuletide treats to sharing a meal, we all have our own traditions that make this once a year holiday stand out. 

While gifts come in all shapes and sizes, memorable experiences will stay with you forever. That’s why Escape Rooms not only make the perfect gift, but they offer a once in a lifetime, immersive, gaming experience, that you simply won’t find anywhere else. 

If that isn’t enough to convince you, here’s why gifting an Escape Room should be at the top of your Christmas list this year:

An extraordinary gift

Living in a post-pandemic world comes with a few surprises that most of us weren’t anticipating. Think fuel and driver shortages, empty supermarket shelves and manufacturer delays, and boom, you’ve got yourself a Christmas gift related fever before we even make it to December! 

So why not take out all the stress of present buying, cosy up on your sofa, and get your loved ones a gift that keeps on giving. 

Unlike a traditional present, gifting an Escape Room experience comes without the wrapping! You’ve got the flexibility, mystery and suspense all working in your favour, and that’s all before your loved one makes their escape. In the dark, short winter days, an Escape Room is undeniably something to look forward to. 

The personal factor

Buying gifts can be quite a challenge. It might be that you have an awkward brother-in-law who has a distinct style, or a partner who buys whatever they want, whenever they want, and the idea of getting them the “perfect” present sends your alarm bells ringing. 

That’s where an Escape Room thrives. Not only is it a unique and immersive experience, but it’s a great gift for those who prefer making memories to receiving another material thing that they just don’t know what to do with. 

What’s more, you can add to the personal factor by leaving clues around the house, and letting your loved ones make their first steps towards their escape! The reward? Vouchers to an experience they are unlikely to forget. 

Surprise!

If your loved one has never played an Escape Room before, then they are in for a real treat. Not only will you be offering them one of the most unique gifts money can buy, but you’ll be introducing a newbie player into the fantastical world of escape! 

Your gamble will soon pay off, once your giftee discovers their next big passion in life. The beauty of it all is that you are the one who introduced them to their newest and enduring hobby in the first place. Praise points all around!

The flexible gift

One of the best perks of an Escape Room is that it makes a great gift no matter how well you know the giftee. Whether they are your “secret Santa” or your childhood friend, you will quickly get a reputation as the “thoughtful” gifter. 

What’s more, the giftee can use the voucher whenever they want to, play any of the games at their chosen location and can use it to cover the cost of any sized game. 

A shared experience

Ok, we’re not saying gift an Escape Room to your loved one just so you join in too. But, it is a definite bonus! 

Whatever your reasons for gifting an Escape Room, your giftee is going to be overwhelmed with joy. It’s likely that they will want to share the experience with you – especially if you are close friends or family. 

With gift vouchers covering the cost of the game itself, your giftee can take as many team players with them for the adventure. After all, a shared experience is always more memorable and fun!

Perfect for the procrastinators

We all know a gift procrastinator. It might even be you! But, there is always a weight of responsibility when it comes to Christmas presents that you’ll likely not feel for the rest of the year. Yet, there are still those that wait right up until Christmas Eve before making the final gifting plunge. 

Fortunately, thanks to the golden age of the internet, you can receive your gift vouchers electronically. So not only can you beat the queues this December, but you can sit back, relax, and wait for your confirmation email. Simple. 

Perfect budget gift

If you are strapped for cash this winter but want to leave a lasting impression, then look no further. With prices starting from £25 for a space on one of our 22 missions and covering up to a seven-person adventure, we’ve got you covered. 

Whether your giftee wants to take on our 1990s Christmas themed “Danger on the Dancefloor” or step back in time to the roaring 1920s “Dark Deeds and Groceries”, or get lost in the creepy 1980s “The Voices We Hear,” they can use their voucher at any of our sites.  

Unusual stocking filler

Love Escape Rooms but want to solve the mystery at home? Surprise your loved ones with one of our award-winning Escape Room games. You can buy online or from any of our locations, and then slip it into your giftee’s Christmas stocking. Sneaky and mysterious!

Step back in time

Nothing compares to stepping into your first-ever Escape Room. The Games Master eagerly awaits your arrival – you may have even be been buzzed into their office. As soon as you step through their door, the magic begins. 

Whether your giftee wants to fully don their detective’s hat, or come dressed for the part, they’re about to step back in time into a bygone era. With walls adorned with paraphernalia and artwork, authentic props and timepieces to boot, be prepared to lose yourself in the game. As soon as the clock starts ticking, the real fun begins. Is your giftee up for the challenge? 

If you want to make your loved one’s Christmas, give the gift of an Escape Room experience. What are you waiting for? Let the fun begin!
