Test your problem-solving skills in an escape room
If you’re a couple that likes a challenge, then another great alternative to a typical Valentine’s Day activity is to test yourselves in an escape room.
SmartyPantz is the city’s premier escape room provider and its theatrical-themed rooms range in difficulty from moderate to hard. You’ll have 45 minutes to solve a range of puzzles and riddles that relate to the room you’re in.
Doing the same thing you did last year is fine. Making that dinner reservation at a fancy restaurant is still on the table, but we’ve all been on a date and sat in awkward silence because we don’t know what to talk about. An escape room experience is not only a fun way to break the ice on a first date but gives partners a new topic of discussion, even if you’ve been together for years. Why not jump headlong into the thrill of the hunt, feel the confidence boost from solving a problem, the adrenaline rush of beating the clock, laughing at yourself and each other, these are all aspects of a date at an escape room.
While our escape rooms are designed for groups of 4 or more, couples can absolutely play and escape if they have the smarts and a sense of adventure. Unlike other escape rooms, all of our rooms are private! We don’t mix strangers into a room together, unless you want to make new friends. #escape #escaperooms #vancitybuzz #calgary #edmonton #valentinesday #valentines #gastown #redmile #icedistrict #picoftheday #funandgames
