Hello, sweetheart! With New Year’s Eve and the holidays behind us, we’re all on the countdown to Valentine’s Day. If you’re still not sure how you plan to celebrate your special day this year, you’re running out of time. But before you load up on chocolates and roses, we’d like to suggest something a little more exciting this year: How about an escape room adventure?


At Escape Frenzy, our Twin Cities escape room experts know that the best date night is the one that keeps the fun going! Read on to learn why an escape room is the sweetest way to spend Valentine’s Day this year.


Planning the Perfect Valentine’s Day Romance

If you should find yourself attached on Valentine’s Day, you know all too well the pressure to bring your “A” game for Valentine’s Day. You can’t go wrong with flowers and chocolate hearts, but what if there’s a better way? If you’re the kind of couple that loves getting out and doing something beyond the ordinary, the idea of a Valentine’s dinner at a romantic restaurant is hardly exciting. How about stepping out of the everyday and immersing yourself in an escape puzzle game you can solve together?


Here’s why you should put down your phones and take on an escape room adventure this valentine’s day:


1.      Get romantic.

If your regular date night consists of dinner and a movie, why not do something more active for a change? We know it can be romantic to cuddle up in front of the TV, but if you’re watching a show, you’re probably not talking. When you’re in an escape room, you can’t avoid chatting. In fact, it’s how you solve the puzzle and make your escape! The best part is that an escape room adventure is an unplugged one, which means you don’t have to worry about competing with Instagram or Facebook.


2.      Work on your communication skills.

Whether you’ve just started dating recently or you’ve been married for years, your communication skills could always use work in a relationship. The entire escape room experience is a test of your communication skills. This is great for double dates because it gives you a chance to get competitive and demonstrate which couple has the best communication. Although you’ll all be working together to solve the puzzle, it’s okay to be a little proud of the fact that you clearly have better communication skills than your pals.


3.      Practice overcoming obstacles.

Relationships are filled with challenges, but the best relationships manage to stay on track even through the toughest obstacles. An escape room is a great way to give your new romance a test run and see how well you work together under pressure. It’s also a ton of fun to challenge each other’s minds and create fun memories you’ll have for many years to come.


4.      Enjoy the thrill of victory.

There’s nothing quite like the excitement of winning. Working together to solve puzzle after puzzle, you’ll be high-fiving each other right and left. You’ll earn your bragging rights when you solve the puzzle, and then you can share your success on social media when you’re done. With four escape rooms to choose from, you can sign up for the next escape room and relive the thrill of the win.


The Ideal Group Date

Valentine’s Day can put pressure on couples to key things up a bit, which can be very awkward if you haven’t been dating very long. If you’re looking for a fun date that isn’t too serious, an escape room is a great way to keep things light. Try getting your friends together for a fun group date. This is a great way to get all of your friends involved and take the pressure off of romantic expectations. It’s also a fantastic idea for teens and young adults.


Here are a few more great Valentine’s ideas:


●        Bring in your church singles’ group.

●        Host a team-building workshop.

●        Bring your kids on a “family date.”
