    Default Escape Room Ideas.

    So there has been alot of talk about escape rooms being an up-sell. So I thought hey, I can do that. Problem is I have no clue where to start or how they work or the set up.

    My hope is that this thread can serve as a resource for all of us to use and abuse. If you have experienced one or have ideas for one--post them here please.

    Thanks!!

    So I have a idea to hide 6 buttons in a room--only one button signals the operator of the room to release the people from the room. The other buttons set off props in the room designed to scare the person pressing the button. The video controller I would use is from Fright Props. It has 7 video channels and one "ambient" track

    Each time a button is pressed it would run a short video stating if the correct button was pressed and activate a prop. Not sure if that is even a good idea. The room would have a 5 minute time frame and I think i would charge $5 a head in groups of 4.

    I've never done one of these so I'm not sure how they work

    I'd hate to get the correct button really quick. Perhaps you could have phony buttons and have your operator manually trigger the props and escape door as the patrons press the buttons, This might avoid disappointment at finding the escape button prematurely.
    When storage is a concearn, put your monster props under the kids beds.

    I too, would Hate fInding the right button too fast. How detailed do you want it to be?
    I was once locked in a room and handcuffed to a pipe that ran along a wall. At the other end there was several pigeon holes-. Only One had the key to free you.
    Knotts trapped had similar but it was a wooden box with a key on a retracting cable.

    You can two team it too. Trapped had a room where the bottom was a cage large enough for a person to crawl around under the other victims. They'd push a button that would open a cage door. I would find the next button/release that would open a door for them to advance to the next caged area. ..

    Good luck with the project, it's a fun one.

    My Son, John went to a couple of escape rooms in Des Moines , Iowa. from what he told me, they were very tricky in hiding tiny switches in places sometimes behind or inside of other things with the craftsmanship in cabinet building pretty much required to make the effect/switches.and hide them.
