Thursday Doors

Norm Frampton, our Thursday Doors Captain, leads us to churches, museums, and historic places of interest.

I’m, however, currently in the land of summer resorts where vying for family attendance and money is king.

While walking with friends at Broadway at the Beach this week, we saw these handsome doors and couldn’t resist taking a photo. In all honestly, though, I had to look up the definition of Escape Games because I didn’t have a clue.

“Escape rooms are the newest in live, interactive entertainment. β€œLocked” in a room with other participants, you will work together as a group to find clues, solve a series of puzzles, and ultimately escape before your time runs out.”

According to their website, forΒ  $36 per person, you can attempt an escape from The Legend of Atlantis, a Dark Winters Night, or The Haunting of Hyde House.

I think I’ll just admire their doors, and buy more material. πŸ™‚

  1. I like those doors. There used to be an Escape Room near us. I never did it but I know a few friends who did it and they escaped to tell the tale.

    lol – if you and I did an escape room together we’d have to bring our quilting because we’d never get out! My oldest daughter is a fan and claims she has a blast every time she’s done one of these. I’m not a “deductive reasoner” (you have to spell everything out to me. Everything.) so you’d eventually find my skeleton behind those beautiful doors! πŸ™‚
    Around here, these were a fad a few years back. Now that building is redesigned for “axe throwing” – with, believe it or not – BEER available! Let them say “ok, boomer!” all they want – not a fan of drunkenly slashing my head open! (or cleaning up after someone else’s “oops! the darn thing slipped right outta my hand!”

    • I’m just glad I didn’t have a mouthful of coffee when I read this because I’m still laughing. Yes, we’d have a wonderful visit, but we’d expire in there together. πŸ™‚ We have driven by an axe throwing place. Maybe, I need to go back and check out their doors. I’m with you, I’m way past the age where it makes any kind of sense to me. But, I do thank you for this wonderful comment because it is a great way to start my Thursday if I can stop laughing thinking about you and I aging in place there. πŸ™‚

  3. I’m with you! I’d rather buy a dinner/mystery with a drink to solve. The colors and design are pretty though.

  4. Pretty door, but the idea of being trapped in the room makes this writer feel nothing but panic. However, my daughter, who is unflappable and loves games, said it was a lot of fun. Let’s just say she didn’t get her personality from me. πŸ˜‰

    Great doors, Judy. There’s an escape room nearby. They advertise that it’s a great team-building exercise. Those are probably the thing I miss the least about work – team-building exercises.

    As always, I love your post and I love the comments! I had no idea either what “Escape Games” meant until you explained, and then I realized there is such a thing here. I have not had the tiniest temptation to try it out. Nice doors, but from the outside!

  7. Nice doors! Some companies use Escape Rooms for team building exercises. Can you imagine what happens when there are several type A personalities?? I wonder if there is a quick escape option!

    I’m with you on this idea of this not being entertainment. I don’t want to be in an Escape Room. It too closely reminds me of being in the hospital when those ER doors swing shut behind you and all you want to do is get out of there, but you can’t. No fun with that.

  9. Some days I just need an escape from my rooms here at home! Imagine having to pay to be locked up!!!

    Sounds too much like being dragged into a Hobby Lobby for “just a few minutes.”

    Good grief! Pay to be locked in a room, possibly with total strangers, and ‘hope’ that between you someone discovers the way out. Nope, No thanks. I know you wouldn’t be left in there permanently….or would you. πŸ˜³πŸ€”

    In my neck of the woods we have an axe throwing place, a few doors down from a craft brewery. Who plans these things?!

    I’m still laughing at Joyce`s comments.

    I do love those doors!!

    Love the doors but no interest in escape rooms. It certainly seems to be a generational thing though, I know a lot of young people really love these kinds of outings. It’s just not my idea of being entertained πŸ˜€

    I like the doors. Wouldn’t pay to enter. Haven’t been to Broadway at the Beach in many years. Glad you’re having such fun exploring the area.

  18. Those escape rooms remind me of those awful team building exercises I used to have to do every once in a while at work. Gawd, how much I hated them! I’m an introvert and just the idea of working with a large group (many of them know-it-alls) to come up with “the best” solution was enough to run away screaming… or, better yet, call in sick that day. I think you made the right decision not to drop $36 for the “privilege” of finding yourself on the other side of those (lovely, by the way) doors.

  19. You have NO idea how unattractive this idea is to me. Being in a locked room is bad. Being in a locked room and having to solve a puzzle? Even worse. But those are really NICE doors.

    Those doors are quite nice! But an Escape Room is not my cup of tea. I’d rather go out to dinner and chat with the same people over a bottle of wine.

    Those doors are pretty. But these Escape Rooms are not for me… i can feel that I won’t be able to go out of it too.

    I had heard of the escape games but had know idea that they were so costly…I’ll definitely not be playing. 😁

  23. I’m with you. Escape rooms aren’t really my thing. I’d rather buy yarn or cake, or both!

    I have had so much fun reading the comments, not that the doors aren’t nice. You know I love doors.

    I would take the $36 for fabric, too.

  26. I’m with you in admiring, not participating, no matter the price. I like to read mysteries, but this doesn’t appeal to me. I know some businesses use this sort of thing to help team-building. Glad I was never at any of them. πŸ™‚
