Escape rooms – great way to spend time

 

Do you want to feel like the hero of an action movie? In an escape room you will experience it in one hundred and twenty percent. Here, you can treat yourself to a miniature 60-minute epinephrine with prolonged action.

What is the genesis of the escape rooms? For such a relatively recent phenomenon, it is accompanied by surprisingly hot arguments about genesis. There are those who point to TV sources – game shows such as “Fort Boyard” or “The Crystal Maze”, whose participants – a bit like fairy tales or computer game users – have to perform further tasks and solve puzzles to get the keys to the treasury. Others see the origins of escape rooms rather in computer games, which were designed on a similar basis and which have a much longer history than television programs. Still others draw attention to the similarity of escape rooms with “survival horror” films, whose protagonist also has to solve puzzles to survive. This is the case in “Resident Evil”, but above all in “Cube”, where there is another element – cooperation. Here are six people locked in a strange room, must cooperate with each other to escape life and get out.

In escape rooms you can see the need for older popculture products, which are difficult to satisfy today in everyday situations. – Our ancestors had to head well thousands of years ago to fire or get food. Those who advised, had profits – a position in the group or recognition of the opposite sex. Today we are looking for a substitute for similar challenges – hence jungle expeditions, climbing in the mountains or forest survival. Escape room is the most intimate, safe option. With the fact that – unlike in the jungle – physical strength is irrelevant here. What counts is the use of what we have in mind. In addition, escape rooms give us the possibility of group activity. With this every day in Polish conditions is poor – employers rarely offer us the opportunity to jointly solve problems, and we treat such challenges with extreme caution. We are individualists, we have little trust in others. A visit to the escape room allows you to break it. Suddenly, it turns out that we really like working together – hence the success of similar businesses.

In Wrocław, the boom for the escape room games began about five or six years ago. At the time, I had the pleasure, together with my friends, to participate in such a game in one of the first locations in the capital of Lower Silesia. at the moment the offer is rich. On the groupon.pl website you can find a lot of different escape rooms, with different available scenarios and climates.

prices are varied but for about 80 to 120 zlotys we can play with friends up to six people

Room Escape is still a fairly new type of fun during which we can learn to cooperate and, by the way, have fun. The rooms themselves are constantly evolving and changing so we can not complain about boredom and fund our intriguing experiences with our friends.

Slodowa Island / Malt Island

If you stay in Wroclaw for more than few days, you have to see Slodowa Island.

It is located in the center of Wroclaw. Slodowa Island is not associated with any major historical event. From the fifteenth century there were malt houses (“malt” in polish means “słód” – this is why this island is called, obviously, “Malt Island”), but now there are not even their remains. You can ask: So why should I go there?

The answer is: Slodowa Island is a cult meeting place (mainly for students) in Wroclaw.

From October to mid-March the island is calm and is mainly used for walking, running or cycling – if you don’t believe me, there are some pictures :).

However, since March it is full of young people laughing, playing the guitar, singing and playing games. Every year, March 21 (first day of spring, but also: truant day), young people gather on Slodowa Island to inaugurate the new season of evening meetings in this place.

From this day until the first cold nights, the island is full of laughter, singing, beer (important information below!) and games every evening.

People on Slodowa Island play mainly:

  • freesbee
  • badminton
  • football tricks
  • flanks (oh, you HAVE to try flanks 😉 ).

Słodowa Island is also a place where many concerts take place.

The biggest music event organized here is “Majówka” (1-3 May), during which there are the biggest stars of Polish rock. A few times there was also beaten “Guinness Guitar Record” in the number of people playing the same song on the guitar at the same time.

I can write about the island for a long time, but the most important thing is: you should see it with your own eyes and feel the atmosphere there 🙂

_________

Let’s face it: full of people likes to drink some beer on Slodowa Island. IS THIS LEGAL? Well, for several years you can’t drink alcohol in public places in Poland. However, student self-governments negotiate with the city authorities every year that they can exclude the Malt Island from this ban. Remember: you are opening beer at your own risk! 🙂
