I was working as a consultant, traveling out of state each week. It was getting exhausting. A few months before our fifth child was born, my wife and I knew that the consulting lifestyle wasn't going to work much longer. We began looking at other options.
For years, we had dreamed of owning our own business. I always wanted to do something fun, but that also connected with my degree in psychology and experience in corporate training and development. Somehow we came across the escape room idea and it seemed like a perfect match.
We visited a few escape rooms. We crunched numbers. We researched, planned, and researched some more. Finally, we decided it was the right fit for us at the right time.
As we visited different escape rooms, we noticed things that we wanted to improve on. Here are a few:
+ We wanted to go beyond just beating a clock, so we developed a custom scoring system that combines the time remaining with the number of hints requested.
+ We wanted to eliminate the "standing around waiting for somebody to give us a hint" routine. The delivery of hints seemed so arbitrary, so subjective. As players, we felt like our success was determined by somebody in another room who could choose when to send a hint. So we developed an interactive method that would allow players to request a hint when they really wanted one.
+ We wanted to create games that would allow teams to compete against each other. With our unique scoring system, we have leveled the playing field.
