School is in session and you have 60 minutes…
By Leslie Kell
From kindergarten to college, students are heading back to school and prepare to gain knowledge in a variety of subjects. As the kids get back into the classroom, it’s a reminder for all of us of the importance of learning and the fact that we can all learn something, every single day.
With that said, consider the escape room your new classroom; school is in session, and you have 60 minutes! In that hour, for this class, you will learn how to think outside the box and how to use logic to solve puzzles.
Studies show that generally speaking, there are four types of learners: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and reading or writing learners. Escape rooms actually cover all of these types of learning; it just depends on what room you choose, or which puzzle you are working on.
For example, in one room you play, you might encounter a puzzle that requires you to pay attention to how things are arranged or set up. That is where the visual comes in. You may also encounter a puzzle that requires you to wear headphones and listen to a certain phrase, that contains the clue; which would be an example of an auditory clue. At Epic Escape we give you a clipboard and paper to help keep track of clues, which is perfect for the reading and writing learner to work through the puzzles in their way. When it comes to kinesthetic learning, many of the escape room puzzles will be perfect! Epic Escape offers many mechanical and movement puzzles, such as setting up building blocks that reveal a clue once they are stacked the correct way.
The point is no matter what learning style someone is, everyone can learn the logic required to solve escape room puzzles as they work through one. Escape rooms are all about challenging yourself to learn something new. We’re encouraging you to ‘register for your next class’ or rather, book your escape room and see what you might learn, no matter your learning style, all while having some fun!
