Wake up, go to work, stare at a computer screen for 8 hours, go home, eat, sleep. Monotony is the destroyer of ambition, curiosity, and engagement with the world. A job, that at one time intrigued, becomes mastered and meaningless. Your brain has solved every puzzle, and all there is left to do is click and type and sip coffee until you die. Well, okay, it’s probably not quite that bad, but in the last quarter before five pm, it can sure feel that way.
Human Minds Crave Novel Experiences.
At Esxoss Manway, we offer Calgarians an opportunity to escape the mundane and enter into the fictional world of their choice. Instead of just watching or reading about heroes from your couch, our customers become the characters of their own action and fantasy flick. You are trapped within a room and no one is coming to save you. It’s just you, your friends, and your wits fighting against the clock.
Think Hard and Play Hard.
The Finnish (those people famous for having some of the best education in the world) having a saying, “that which is not learned through joy is quickly forgotten.” That’s a philosophy we embrace full heartedly. Problem solving, divergent thinking, and communication are all incredibly employable skills that anyone could benefit from mastering. But no one perfects these sorts of attributes in a classroom doing worksheets. The only way to improve is to get out and confront obstacles. Our rooms are designed to challenge your mind and your team’s ability to work together within a safe and fun, fast-paced environment.
A bored brain is a brain that’s not bothering to create new, unique memories. It’s been there, done that, seen this before. That’s why it can be hard to tell whether your memory of brushing your teeth this morning is really from this morning or actually from yesterday morning. It’s also why remembering where you put your keys can be tricky. It’s just not something that your bored brain bothers to keep track of.
The best way to make new memories that stick with you for a lifetime is to face unique, demanding trials. If you really want to have a date or a get together that you’ll all remember in 20 years, choose an atypical activity that breathes fresh air into your life and relationships.
We humans have unusually long lifespans, and yet many people choose to live through identical day after identical day. Don’t be a side character in your own life, be the hero. Book your adventure with Esxoss Manway today.
