There are a multitude of different benefits to young people taking part in escape rooms. Firstly, it improves communication and teamwork. When a group of young people come together to work out a problem, effective communication is key to success; they will have to effectively communicate every single detail of the room. The young people will also need to listen to other players, which brings forth the opportunity to see the value in contributions from others. It is a great way for them to socialise and strengthen their friendships and relationships in a safe environment. Escape rooms boost problem solving skills, critical thinking, analytical skills, time management skills, confidence and mental health. It increases young people’s patience and help them learn early on that things take time. They won’t be able to solve every puzzle in a matter of minutes. Escape rooms help develop young people’s abstract thinking, ability to keep an open mind and to think outside the box.
