Time To Pop The Question!

Getting proposed to is a once-in-a-lifetime event, so why not make it extra special with an escape room proposal? Whether you're planning to propose to your partner or you're looking for an exciting way to pop the question, an escape room proposal is one of the best ways to go!

The best thing about an escape room proposal is that it's incredibly customizable. Whether you're looking to recreate your first date or surprise your partner with a romantic story, the possibilities are endless!

You can also customize the room to fit your relationship's history. Maybe you both love a certain movie or book series, or perhaps you want to use clues from your first date. Whatever it is, you can use it to craft a unique and memorable proposal.

But with hundreds of escape room ideas out there, picking a theme can be overwhelming. Fret not! We at Lock Paper & Scissors understand that no matter the theme, your partner deserves something unforgettable. That's why we've got a few tips and tricks to help you plan the perfect escape room proposal.

1. Keep It A Secret Until The Last Moment

Nothing will make your partner feel more special than being surprised. So, be sure to keep the proposal a secret until the last moment. You can even arrange to have a close friend or family member join you in the escape room. They'll be the ones to reveal that it's a proposal after you complete the challenge.

The great thing about this idea is that you can make the surprise even bigger by including more people in it. Plus, your partner will love getting to share a remarkable moment with the people they love most.

2. Make Sure Your Partner Is An Escape Room Fan

Your partner will appreciate a proposal even more if it involves something they love. So, make sure to pick an escape room that's in line with their interests.

For example, if your partner is a sports fan, you could surprise them with an escape room themed around their favorite team. Or, if they're a fan of romantic comedies, you could recreate your favorite movie scene in the escape room. This way, your proposal will be one-of-a-kind and incredibly special.

3. Make It Seem Like It Was Their Idea

Now you don't have to go all INCEPTION on your partner to make the proposal a success. But you can give them the illusion of choice by suggesting an escape room visit as a fun activity.

This way, you can surprise them when they realize that it's actually a proposal. You may even get away with having them suggest the theme you had in mind.

The fact that they suggested it means it was less likely that they would think it was something you were planning.

4. Relax And Go With the Flow

It is normal to get a bit nervous when proposing. But the most important thing is to remain relaxed and go with the flow. Once the adrenaline starts pumping, take note of how you feel. If it's too overwhelming, take a few moments to breathe and gather your thoughts before continuing with the proposal.

Remember, no matter how far off you may feel from your initial plan, it is still possible to make a romantic and unforgettable proposal.

5. Don't Blank Out! Follow Your Instincts

Once your partner finds the ring, and you are on your knees, it's natural to be overcome with emotion. You may even find yourself stumbling over your planned words.

No worries! When you feel like you're blanking out, follow your instincts. You may not have all the words that you had planned but what's important is that they know your feelings and understand what you are trying to say.

Sometimes the most genuine moments are the ones without too much planning. After all, that's what makes a proposal memorable.

6. Make the Right Move

So you've made the proposal, and your partner said yes! Now it's time to make the right move. Depending on how you want to celebrate, you can keep the escape room going until the end or start your celebration immediately by popping a bottle of champagne.

It is best to get your partner's opinion before you make a decision. You may want to keep the escape room going for some extra fun and then switch up the mood with a romantic dinner. Whatever you decide, just make sure that the moment is made special according to your shared interests and preferences.

7. Mission Accomplished

At the end of the day, you have successfully completed your mission and made one of the biggest moments in your life a reality. It may have been stressful, nerve-wracking, and overwhelming at times.

But the most important thing is that your partner said yes! This is the start of a beautiful journey that you can look forward to taking together. Congratulations!

So, if you're planning on popping the question soon, why not do it in an escape room and make your proposal more memorable? It's sure to surprise your partner in a wonderful way and make for a story that both of you will be able to cherish. Good luck!
