Not your average date night

As much as I love spending quality time with my husband sans baby, I get tired of the same old dinner-and-a-movie date night. So, I’m always looking for new, unique things for us to try where we can reconnect, and have fun together. This is something I found that is definitely worth sharing! An “Escape Room”! We decided to double date with some friends and had the best time! We were SO close to escaping, that we are determined to go back and solve this mystery!!

While this activity is more common across Europe and Asia, escape rooms are becoming more and more popular in the US.  Steal and Escape is one of San Diego’s newest “recreational activities”, offering a fun and challenging test for families, friends, date nights, or team builders to work together to “escape” the room. This quest provides the perfect opportunity for individuals to work as a team to solve puzzles, find clues, crack riddles, and uncover keys & locks. Is your husband a gamer or survivalist? He will LOVE this!

Players are given 60 minutes within a seemingly normal room, in which they must race against time to combine their skills and knowledge to meet the ultimate goal of escaping or solving the mystery presented to them.

    I would love to win this my husband and I work at the time and take care of our 2 year old so it would be so much fun to have a date night with friends. I have heard about it before and would love to go. Please choose me!

  5. Olivia says:

    Eek! I could so use a fun activity like this and some adult interaction!! Being a full-time working single mama has dampened my “adult fun” side of life lately. I would love to take a date to this 😉

  6. Sarah says:

    This looks so awesome. My husband got to do it for work on a business trip to NY and couldn’t stop talking about it. I stayed home with a newborn and lived vicariously! It would be such a blast to get the chance to join in the fun!

  7. Evi says:

    I’ve been to one escape room (outside of the US) and it was so much fun, I would love to try one in San Diego!

  8. Sheree says:

    Sounds like a blast! Would love to try it out.

  9. Lisa says:

    This looks like so much fun! Would love a great group date night!

  10. Ursula Cervantez says:

    I’d love to win this! I saw a couple of friends go and they said they loved it! Hubby and I haven’t had a date night in a while. I think it would be a great way to get us out of the house.

  11. Jasmine Mungaray says:

    We have never done this but would love to try ! We love our date nights to be something more the sitting down at a table next to each other so this would be awesome for us to get to interact in this way . It looks like such a fun experience and would love to do this with our other friends .

  12. Lizzy Cabrera says:

    My typos crack me up. Putting my oldest to sleep. No breaks, ever! Even with my baking business. A get away is much needed for me 🙁

  13. Lizzy Cabrera says:

    Ahh I want this do bad! I have been wanting to do this for a while now. I have heard about these and just recently added it to my bucket list of date bucket ideas! I think I deserve this because this mama gas probably had 2 date nights in over 3 years of taking care of baby’s :(. NEEEED this!

  14. Tiffany says:

    We had a group a 5 that went and did one of these. Upon walking in we all looked at each like “eh, how are we going to have fun in here?” Well, that was QUICKLY thrown out the window. We are now OBSESSED!

  15. Jessica T says:

    My husband and I were literally just talking about trying one of these escape rooms! Our friends already said they would come with us! I love puzzles and games:) Looking forward to trying this escape room!

  16. Brandy says:

    I’ve never heard of this! I have two couples in mind to bring along with us. Sounds like a fun, unique experience for sure!

  17. Julia Miller says:

    My hubby and I played this game together on our phone and loved it! We completed both! It’s time to make it real!!!! Dying to go! My hubby would love this!!!

  18. Cerise Stadther says:

    I love playing escape rooms on the computer. It would be amazing to try it out in real life! Hubby and I could use a different kind of date night before baby number two comes along!!

    I love escape rooms!! I’ve done eight so far and I’m not planning to stop doing them anytime soon. It’s super cool that another has opened in the SD area and I’d love to give Steal and Escape a try 😀
