BEST UTAH DATE IDEA YOU CAN DO ANYWHERE!
Finder’s Seekers is the ultimate escape room at home date! And I’m not exaggerating when I say this has been the most fun at-home date night we’ve ever done. So I have to mention this one first. I gifted a box to my husband for Valentine’s Day and we had so much fun working on solving this puzzle together!
Finder’s Seekers has monthly subscription options (where you get a new mystery to solve each month) or you can just buy a one-time mystery box. Not only is this great for date night, but family fun!
I was amazed at the detail and thought that goes into each mystery. We worked on our mystery for almost 3 hours, although you could easily split it up into more than one date. We didn’t want to stop!
Each box content varies, but each month there are abundant cryptic clues and puzzles to get your heart racing and brain ticking. You’ll transport to a unique locale for each ‘Find’ where you’ll uncover underground cultures and explore local traditions. You’ll need to rely on good ‘ole fashioned research and online tools to make your way to the ‘Find.’
Ready to have a creative date planned for you? Order this fun date night here. I promise you will love it! Use the code: HALFOFF to save 50% on your first box! That makes it only $15 for a super fun date idea!
