Steps to a Successful Escape Room Adventure

by Rahul Raheja manager

Fantasy, by allowing the audience to escape into their imagination, discards the boundaries that society regulates and breaks away from the tedious uniformity of day-to-day life. Fantasy allows the onlooker to be seduced into a reality where anything is possible and such constraints as gender and race are not always an issue. St Louis Escape Room Fantasy characteristically takes that which is lacking in life and transforms it into something more desirable, creating it into a more attractive and superior element of 'reality'.


The film Alice in Wonderland (1999) follows the story of a young girl, Alice, who would do anything to avoid performing in front of 'a group of strangers,' so she ventures away from her parent's house to find 'the perfect place to hide.' This search leads Alice to the magical realm of Wonderland, where she discovers a beautiful garden, what follows is the adventure to find a way into the garden so she can hide until her parent's guests leave.


Alice is given the clear impression that if she does not perform for her parent's guests, her parents will 'be very disappointed in her.' This remark only makes Alice more concerned about her performance, making her feel that she is being judged only for her singing merits, not any of other characteristics.


Alice makes a statement in the running away, in the hopes that it will show her parents that the pressures, or constraints, that they have placed on her are too restricting. Alice believes that it is too hare for her to keep up with the expectations and standards of others. By escaping to Wonderland, Alice can hide from her responsibilities to her parents, her stage fright and those who don't seem to care about her feelings and views. Alice soon realizes that Wonderland is full of mad, crazy performers who, although listening to her views still want her to perform.


These bizarre characters have a striking resemblance to the 'strangers' she has been trying so hard to runaway from or take on the role of personalities from games or rhymes, such as the Queen of Hearts and White Knight or Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dee. These characters attempt to convince Alice that it is perfectly natural to have stage fright before a first performance, a view that is not explained to her by her music teacher, or anyone else around her, to help calm her nerves.
