Escape with a Smile
Smiles and laughter keep us healthy, but many of us don’t get enough of them in our day-to-day lives. That’s why it’s important to find a way to escape every once in a while. At The Enigma Room, you can do exactly that, escaping not just from reality, but also literally escaping from the room itself.
We at The Enigma Room were thrilled recently when we were featured as one of Australia’s best venues to make you smile and laugh, on a Bupa Dental Insurance’s blog?. The article, 'Put a Smile on your Dial: Fun Places to Go!', is full of great ideas and inspiration for having fun with the people you love. No one understands better than a dentist, the importance of flashing a good, healthy smile, and so Bupa asked us to share some of the ways we like to put a smile on the faces of our customers:
Smiles Solve Everything
We're blessed to get smiles and laughter from our customers for all kinds of reasons, but the main joy we see is when people solve each puzzle that gets them closer to escaping the room. It’s a great way of bonding with friends or colleagues, as you each have a unique contribution to make that will strengthen the team as a whole.
The puzzles involved in each game require a variety of different skills to solve them. Some are physical, some require observational skills, and some need a little more specialist knowledge. Once you all put your heads together, you’ll find the game brings out attributes you never knew you had, and create camaraderie between you all. People of all ages will benefit from working as a team – you’ll find yourselves reacting, smiling and laughing together as a natural part of the experience.
Lose Yourself in Laughter
It’s amazing how quickly people lose their inhibitions once they get involved in the game. The back story automatically makes people get into the roles of being a spy, psychologist, or whatever the game requires, and we love to see our players fully embrace the games and these roles.
We've had teams that break out regular chest bumps and victory poses when puzzles get solved, and other teams that whoop and holler with delight when progressing through the room. Other times people have found themselves doubting the rest of your team only for the team to turn out to have the right solution, resulting in friendly teasing for the rest of the session, but the atmosphere is so good humoured that nobody gets offended. The excitement of the game takes over, with everyone working toward the same objective and getting fully immersed in our scenarios.
The Enigma Room is a great way to escape every day cares and you’re guaranteed to leave with a closer connection to your friends or colleagues, not to mention a great big smile on your face.
Thank you to Bupa for chatting to us, and we hope to see you at the Enigma Room!
