As far as celebrations go, the more the merrier, right?

Some just spring to mind, right?

You have your personal occasions, like birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, bar mitzvahs, and so on.

Then there are the holidays – Christmas, New Year, Memorial Day and the like.

An extended family getting together is also an event worth celebrating.

And finally, you have corporate events.

And…that’s about it, right?

That’s the occasions that come to mind when you think about celebrating a special occasion at an escape room.

What if I told you that there are a whole lot more occasions that you can (and should) celebrate in an escape room?

OK, maybe that gif’s a little too dramatic.

But it is true.

Our lives are far too interesting to have only those few types of special occasions.

There’s a whole lot more happening in our lives that deserves celebration.

And celebrating those is what makes our lives even more special.

 

Here are five less well known occasions that you can make special and celebrate at an escape room.

Graduation

Ah, graduation.

That moment you turn more adult than when you turned eighteen.

That moment when you feel full of energy and passion to take on the world.

A moment that will be photographed, recorded and transmitted to every family member possible.

In many cases, it earns you a special prize, like a car. Or a phone. Or…something.

Seems an occasion worthy of celebrating at an escape room, doesn’t it?

Speaking of getting a car…

Getting a driving license

A rite of passage, for many young men and women.

Getting a license to drive.

For most folks, this is the final outcome of a four step process:

  • Step one: Taking baby steps in driving, with a parent in charge.
  • Step two: Finding a professional driving instructor, and taking professional driving classes.
  • Step three: Taking the driving test.
    • Some folks need more than one attempt to pass.
  • Step four: Going to the DMV and actually getting your license.

As you can see, getting a driving license is the outcome of a long and arduous process.

Which is why it merits a celebration at an escape room.

Getting your first paycheck

The time you attain “financial independence” and begin life as an independent person.

OK, maybe the first paycheck won’t be big enough to make you “financially independent”, but it’s still a huge moment in your life.

A turning point, where you demonstrate that you’re capable of earning a living.

And nothing screams “financial independence” better than blowing through your first paycheck in a big celebration, including escape games.

Your business breaking even for the first time

If you are a business owner, or ever have been a business owner, you will know the trials and tribulations of starting and running a business.

One of the things that will bug you right from Day One will be breaking even – when your revenue covers your costs.

Theoretically, you should generate profits after breaking even.

Which is what makes it such a major occasion to celebrate.

Paying off your mortgage

A mortgage is the route to many dreams, including having a home of your own.

And mortgages are also a leading cause of indebtedness in the United States. For many people it hangs like a millstone around their necks till they retire.

So, paying off your mortgage is indeed an occasion to celebrate. With a trip to an escape room.
