We get a lot of students coming to Escape Stoke, and one reason for this is that it’s a great form of escapism for them, getting them away from the rigour of academic study and a welcome relief from deadlines and endless online research. It’s only an hour, so it doesn’t take them away for too long, but it’s a welcome distraction where they can get to know new friends and unwind with old ones.
Get away from the studying and endless reading
Escape Stoke provides the best antidote to the daily grind of every day student life. Yes, it can be fun, but it can also be extremely stressful. One way of counteracting this is to take time out, and our Escape Rooms is the best way of doing it. It’s also an ideal opportunity to spend time with friends you don’t see often enough and to make new ones. There are bound to be those stuck in halls who’ve not had any opportunity to socialise yet, so inviting them along is a perfect opportunity to break the ice.
Talking, socialising, no social media necessary
You’ll be locked in a themed room of your choice and you’ll have to search for clues, collect them and then once you have them all, work them out. This way you get to unlock the door. It’s an opportunity to talk, socialise and to put away your iPhone, your iPad and laptops and actually speak to each other. It’s also a great opportunity to bone up on your communication skills and practice some team building. This will set you up nicely for job interviews in the future.
Find the clues, watch the clock, forget the university
Before we forget, all you have is an hour in which to find and work out the clues to unlock the door. So, you really are up against the clock. It’s perfect for really shutting down the anxiety and worry of study and disappearing into another world where only escaping the room is your priority. We love it for that reason, and we see so many students come here, not just once but over and over again because they love it so much.
Naturally, the emphasis is on working together, because when you do that, you’ll have a far better chance of getting out. It’s the perfect getaway and so beloved of all our visitors, regardless of whether they’re students.
