Last month we were talking about how escaping from a locked room may be a great way to reconnect with Mom. This month, we have a similar message: how about a Father’s Day adventure at Esxoss Manways?
Trying Something New.
There are many ways to be a Dad, but something that many Canadian fathers have in common is that they’re a figure of security to their young kids. When you take your first adventure into Fish Creek Park or first see a bird fly through the air, Dad is often the person there who is ready to catch you in case you fall, or to wisely tell you the name of each animal your point at. As an adult, you don’t really need that sort of guiding hand anymore, but it may still be fun and nostalgic to experience something totally new with your Dad.
Have Some Fun!
In many families, Dad takes on the fun-parent role. He’s the one teaching you how to play sports or how to ride your bike. And many kids remember taking baths with Dad when he’d show you how to sink your bath toys. Nowadays, it can be difficult to remember to make time for ‘play’. Calgarians are terribly busy people, and we’re only working more and more, but it’s important to schedule time to just relax and unwind. Recapture some of the playfulness of your youth by spending an hour with Dad escaping from a locked room.
Forget the Rest of the World.
When you’re trying to escape, the outside world tends to melt away. For an hour, it’s just the players, the room, and the clock. No cellphones are allowed in our escape rooms, so you don’t need to worry about work phoning or Facebook notifications distracting you from just being present with Dad. You guys will get an hour to really talk and solve problems together. We’ve heard from many Calgarians who were thrilled to have the opportunity to bring their parents to one of our adventures, as the escape adds structure and an easy topic of conversation for the hour.
Not sure what to do for Father’s Day? Want to show your Dad you care, but don’t want to buy him yet another tie? Why not schedule an escape from Esxoss Manway? For an hour, you two can work together to solve the clues and find a way out. We’re conveniently located close to Chinook Mall, so after you’ve escaped, you can catch a bite to eat or head home.
