If you’ve been to an escape room before, you most likely were in a space that was large enough to fit 10-15 people. While these escape rooms are perfect for a larger group, sometimes players can get lost in the shuffle or feel devalued with so many others in the room. Instead, try out a mini escape room. At Bond’s Escape Room we offer the only mini escape rooms in Arlington and the entire Northern Virginia area. Our 6 mini escape rooms are perfect for groups of 1-3 and only last 10-25 minutes. For those looking for a more intimate, less chaotic experience, with the same exciting challenge, a mini escape room is the perfect solution.
Play While You Wait
If you arrive early to your regular game time, a mini escape room at Bond’s Escape Room is a great way to spend time while you wait. These mini escape rooms are also great opportunities for parents to have a piece of the fun while they wait for their kids to finish their 60-minute game. If you’re with a couple groups and your group finishes early, hop into a mini escape room and squeeze in an extra challenge while you wait for your friends to play. With the mini escape rooms available, there’s no room for boredom!
An Intimate Experience
Solving a puzzle with a smaller group is more manageable and often more productive. With a large room that fits upwards of 12 people, there are a dozen cooks in the kitchen and the experience can become chaotic and ultimately less enjoyable. A small group of 1-3 is the perfect amount of people to solve the puzzle strategically, without the added shouting match that larger groups can evolve into. It can also be great practice for a larger room, since the mini escape rooms only last a maximum of 25 minutes. Also, mini escape rooms serve as the perfect date spot, where parties of 2 can attempt to escape the room through strategic thinking and teamwork, and still have time to grab dinner afterward!
More Opportunities to Test Your Skills
At Bond’s Escape Room in Arlington, our 6 mini escape rooms offer 6 different opportunities for participants to come back for a new, fast challenge! One obstacle that many escape rooms run into involves the limited offering of rooms, and participants can only come back once or twice to the small number of available rooms. At Bond’s Escape Room, there’s no need to worry about limited choices. With 6 mini rooms that are updated throughout the year, you’ll have ample opportunities to test out your detective skills on our vast room offering!
The Perfect Challenge
Many large escape rooms are designed for the larger groups, but also available to smaller parties. This often presents a challenge for the smaller groups, as they are unable to solve the puzzle in time in such a large room – not because of their lesser critical thinking skills, but because the puzzle isn’t designed to be solvable by such small groups. In a large room, what usually ends up happening is 8 people are working to solve the puzzle and the other 3-4 are waiting with nothing to do. A mini escape room presents the perfect challenge because its puzzle is designed specifically for very small groups. When you can pair the size of the group with the design of the puzzle, it’s a better experience for all parties involved. And if you are still struggling to escape the room on time, check out these escape room tips for success!
