Why did you decide to get involved in the escape room industry?
My involvement in escape games is quite random. I played my first escape game almost two years ago and have been hooked as a player ever since. I was offered a job at the PanIQ Room shortly after they opened. My love for escape games started as a player, but it quickly became just as much fun to lock people up. I quickly became more involved in the full operation.
The best escape games I have been to have an immersive decor around the room and a solid game. The decor of a room sells the story to get you emotionally invested, but the puzzles are what keep you interested in the entire experience. If I had to choose, I would rather have good puzzles in the game over anything else.
We had a guy propose to his girlfriend inside the Bunker, which was pretty unique. She had no idea their friends and family were decorating our waiting area while they played the game. Also, it was funny that he came in a few days before to learn the game so he didn’t look like a fool.
