Give the Gift of Time This Holiday Season

Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be quite a challenge. Finding the perfect gift during a pandemic presents even more of an obstacle. This year, instead of running from shop to shop, stay safe at your Royal Athena apartment and instead brainstorm some ways to give the gift of time to your loved ones. While many of the events gift-givers usually think of—theater, sports games, movies—aren’t an option this year, there are other, smaller-scale excursions that are still in play.

Escape rooms are a great way to enjoy time with a loved one in a fast-paced, thought-provoking and teamwork-oriented setting. At Chestnut Hill Escape Room, you can get all the fun of a traditional escape room but with the peace of mind that you’re doing so safely.

Located 15 minutes from your Royal Athena apartment, the Chestnut Hill Escape Room is a great option for those who want some hands-on fun with their loved ones this holiday season. The company offers three distinct rooms with their own storylines: a paranormal investigation, a 1920s hat shop heist and a Victorian-era mystical adventure. Each room is expertly designed with attention to detail, creating a truly immersive experience.

No matter which room you pick, every booking is entirely private—so you don’t have to worry about sharing a room with anyone else, especially important in today’s times. Game masters no longer stay in the room with players, and bookings are staggered, so visitors don’t encounter other guests during their trip. Up to eight players can participate in each game, making it a great option for a family holiday outing, or even a unique date night.

Getting out and about to celebrate the holidays and your loved ones will be a little harder this year, but with some creativity and by taking advantage of all that Philly has to offer, this can still be an exciting and memorable holiday season.
