Quoted from escapology.com

In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play.” - Friedrich Nietzsche

Escape rooms not only represent a healthy distraction from the everyday stress of work, but they also offer additional benefits that can improve your workplace. Before you book, here are five benefits to playing escape games.

1. Enhance Creativity

Escape games offer teams an opportunity to creatively employ their problem solving skills. Challenging yourself and others to think outside of the box has a host of benefits that can transition into other areas of life. 

2. Encourage Collaboration

Even in settings where collaboration is already in action, encouraging teamwork in a new context can stimulate communication and idea synthesis skills. 

3. Reduce Stress

4. Build Empathy

The team that struggles together stays together. Facing and overcoming challenges as a team helps build empathy. 

5. Increase Motivation

Physical movement and problem solving can trigger the brain to release dopamine. Dopamine not only triggers the brain to experience pleasure, but it is also essential for increased motivation.

Movie Days

Friday afternoons on dates when school lets out early, we will often offer a movie for children at 2 pm. Dates, times, and movie picks vary from year to year. To keep up-to-date on the events being offered by WPL, visit our  calendar or follow us on Facebook.
