Escape Rooms & Mental Fitness – Keeping Your Brain Dangerously Fit

Escape Room Cozumel can keep your brain active and fit!Keeping fit doesn’t only mean to keep oneself physically fit, it means taking care of one’s mental well-being as well. This is mainly because your mental wellbeing has a direct effect on your physical fitness. Good mental fitness is not only recognized by carrying out fast mental calculations, but rather on a person’s overall mental well being, which also includes their balance, resilience and their ability to make the most out of whatever life throws at them. The following are some of the ways in which our escape room game in Cozumel can provide people with a healthy way to improve their mental wellbeing.

Escape Rooms are a Challenging Experience

Escape room games are a great way for maintaining peak mental fitness mainly because it is a challenging experience. Escape room games do this by activating both your full and close attention. It’s just not enough to find an activity challenging, to put your mental fitness to the test a game must have something that requires you to put in some mental effort, and that’s exactly what escape room games provide. Similar to playing an instrument, playing something new is always challenging, but playing something that you already know is not. The beauty of escape room games are that they always offer something different, which means you never get to be in the same scenario twice. This allows the participants in the escape room game to put their brains to the test, which in turn helps them sharpen their brain.

Escape the Room Games Teach You Something New

As mentioned earlier, no matter how mentally challenging the activity is, if you have done it before, it’s not that challenging and intellectually demanding. The activity or game you play needs to be something new and something that you are unfamiliar with in order to be mentally stimulating. Escape room games allow the participants to strengthen their brain by keeping on learning and developing new skills.

Escape Rooms Develop Skills You Can Build On

Escape Room Cozumel gives its participants the unique capabilities to build on their skillsets by starting off at an easy level and then making steady progresses to more complex escape rooms. This allow the participants to always push the envelope so that they continue to strengthen and stretch their mental capabilities. Whenever a person escapes from a room level, they get to move on to another more advance escape room level, which makes each challenge a new one for the participant.

And finally, one of the main reasons why many people find escape room games so fascinating is because it is something different and new. Most people are tired of playing the same ole’ games like bowling or golf and are looking for something a bit more new and exciting. Escape room games are that new and exciting way of getting the ultimate gaming experience in real life, without having to put yourself in any real danger. In a way, playing these escape room games allows people to break out of the norm and try out something fresh and new, and something that they would enjoy.

We are the First Escape the Room Game in Cozumel!

Amid months of smoke & mirrors and swirling rumors that another escape the room game in Cozumel existed somewhere on the island, it is official… we are the first operational escape room in Cozumel and only the third room escape game to open in all of Mexico!

And we’re really proud of that! It took us almost four months to plan, build and then put the final touches on our “Maddie’s Missing” escape the room game in Cozumel.

The results speak for themselves as our very first TripAdvisor review went live today, too! We honestly couldn’t think of a better Christmas gift…

Escape the Room in Cozumel Reviews on TripAdvisorI played this with my 2 daughters and 2 of my adult friends today. We’ve never played an escape room before and we had an absolute blast! I truly loved how the entire theme of the room we played really immersed us into the game. We played “Maddie’s Missing” which was based on the story that we were detectives investigating the mysterious disappearance of a missing girl. The plot twist was fantastic and really fun! The interconnected puzzles and riddles led us to open a series of locks that got us closer and closer to being able to escape the room. We didn’t make it out in the 60 minutes we were given but were really close. The owner, Scott, told us we were really close to finishing but that only about 20% to 30% of the groups make it through. I can’t wait for the two other rooms to open up so that we can play those too! I’m hooked on escape rooms now.

This was family appropriate but the puzzles are probably more suited to teenagers rather than younger children.

"Maddie's Missing" Escape the Room Game in Cozumel, MexicoAfter completing the build out and play testing the “Maddie’s Missing” escape room, we were fortunate enough to welcome three very experienced escape the room game players, along with two energetic newcomers, for our very first booking last Tuesday. The experienced players all said that the theme of the escape room was cohesive, the puzzles, riddles and challenges all made sense in the context of the story. They agreed that the clues were well-thought out, challenging but completely fair.

As the Cozumel escape room’s designer, the greatest compliments I took away were: 1. they absolutely had fun, 2. they encountered original puzzles and 3. that they appreciated the humor I weaved into the story’s theme at key moments during the hour they were playing, which can get very intense!

I’m definitely proud to hear that from these experienced players!

Ultimately, they didn’t escape the room in 60 minutes and were only one challenge shy of escaping. To be fair, only two of the five players had played together before and that can make a significant difference in escaping in time or not.

Here’s to hoping for many more satisfied customers of our escape the room game in Cozumel!
