Do you love to travel? (We do.) Escape rooms are the perfect activity for those who travel a lot. We did a lot of traveling last year across the country, and found ourselves playing an escape room or multiple escape rooms in each city we visited.
Because you can only play each escape room once, eventually you will run out of games in your hometown. That's why traveling to different cities to play escape games in the next evolution of play. We try to play at least two escape rooms in each city we visit. It's a great, fun, activity to add to your schedule that doesn't involve eating or drinking. It takes only an hour or so of your time, so you can still fit in (...take a break from...) your parks, museums, or whatever spots called you to that city in the first place.
Being in the heart of San Diego's Pacific Beach neighborhood, we've had so many tourists visit us (have you seen the pins on our map?). We meet so many escape room addicts from Los Angeles that have exhausted all the escape rooms in LA and have ventured down south to hit us. It's also so great to see when we have visitors from all over the country/world that have played hundreds of escape games throughout the country/world that have found us to add to their list.
It's just as special when first time players find us on TripAdvisor and decide to give escape rooms a try. These newbies are so blown away that they can't wait to try all the ones in their hometown. Our favorite is when our visitors have so much fun playing one of our escape rooms that they book our other escape room immediately after or return the next day. We've been told that Quicksand has been the highlight of their San Diego vacation.
Keep in mind that some escape games in major cities, where there aren't many companies, fill up days in advance. So when you're planning your trip, make sure to check their schedule to reserve a spot that fits best with your busy itinerary.
We just came back from a quick getaway to Palm Springs where we played two rooms at Escape Room Palm Springs. Some of our favorites across the country have been The Escape Game in Nashville and Austin, and Trapology in Boston. We'll keep you posted on more of our favorites as we travel more and try new escape rooms. Hopefully when you visit Quicksand Escape Games, we'll be your favorite escape room in San Diego!
