Escape rooms are a well-established part of alternative entertainment for all ages which is thriving all around the world. In short terms, an escape room is a themed space with special scenery, decoration, lighting, special effects, where a group of people (usually 2-6) are getting locked inside. The group has to play a game of riddles, puzzles and skill tasks in order to escape within a given time (60’-90’ minutes). The themes can vary from crime scenes, mythical kingdoms, middle age castles, pirate ships till more horror themed venues.
Escape room venues have their rooms available for reservations. An average escape room can have between 3 to 9 different escape rooms available. The customers book their reservation for a visit at a single room through a booking system. Escape rooms tend to be popular among the age groups of 18-24, 25-34 but also 13-17 years-old. Escape room venues can host birthday parties, team building events and other group activities as their product is suitable for ages, making a very profitable business activity for entrepreneurs.
