The popularity of live-action team-based escape room games has grown tremendously since its inception in 2007. Many escape room facilities have expanded from a single thematic room to multiple rooms, accessible to a wide age range of players. The appeal of escape room games extends from groups of friends to families to team-building opportunities for all sizes of businesses and corporations. On average, an escape room facility is open about 60 hours a week to accommodate its popularity.
Depending on the market location, the facility either charges by the person, or by the team or group. Additionally, most facilities schedule a debriefing time into the experience so that participants can talk about their event and transition back into the “real world” after the high-stress environment created within the escape room.
For an efficient and effortless experience on the player’s end, an online booking process, such as GigaBook, is key to getting things off to a smooth start. This allows an individual or an entire group to schedule an escape room, and can handle multiple pricing options. Customized emails and reminders are sent, and GigaBook’s mobile app allows access to the information anywhere, anytime.
