It's live! We're excited to share that our escape room experience for Ardbeg, the Scottish whisky hailing from the south coast of the isle of Islay, Argyll and Bute, Scotland is now rolling across the United States.
Earlier this year in June we had the opportunity to work with Weber Shandwick, one of the world's leading global public relations firms, to design, build, install and run a custom pop-up escape room for one of the biggest American chocolate bar brands.
Earlier this month the Houston Outlaws tried the custom escape room we created for Crack the Cypher down in Los Angeles, California. True to their competitve nature the team split up into two groups to compete against each other for the best time. Don't worry, no puzzle solutions are shown.
Check out the video above and see how they fare in Starship Desolation!
We're excited to announce that the custom escape room experience we designed for West Edmonton Mall, the biggest mall in North America is open for business!
Take your place as a part of Team Hermes 7 and investigate what happened to the crew of Moon Colony Persephone. Can you solve the mystery before you run out of oxygen - or worse?
You are a member of the crew of the Starship Desolation, a deep space exploration vessel. One of the most advanced and ambitious ships in human history. You are part of a bright new frontier for our species. This mission was not only launched to look for a second home for the people of earth but also to search for new species of alien life.
Recreating the escape room experience at home can be fun not only for the players, but also for you while designing and building it. Obviously, friends and family will not expect you to build out a completely new room inside your house for a fun game. Though you really can create a extremely immersive experience for the players without breaking the bank (or the walls).
Immersion is like air—constantly surrounding us and affecting our every move. We don’t notice when it’s there and when we do we just resign to just dealing with it or breathing a little harder to compensate. With escape rooms as an industry being so young, this is by far one of the biggest and most commonly neglected areas in escape rooms everywhere.
Escape rooms are meant to be an alternate reality where we can interact with them like we would in reality. We’re free to touch anything we want (well, I think a lot of them tell you to not touch certain things… but that’s for another day), and fully immerse ourselves in the world we find ourselves in. Unlike the real world however, escape rooms tend to have a narrative and goals for us to follow.
