One of the most common questions I get about CLUE Inn Escape Room is, why open an escape room.
Well, my fist escape room was in Lehi, UT and it was a mobile one, that is it was in a trailer. My first impression was that it was going to be too small and crowded and it didn’t really look too impressive. However, when we got in the room, I was pleasantly surprised, there was enough room and the set up was kind of cool.
I wanted to bring both sides of my family together, my sisters and my in-laws. They hadn’t had that much interaction and since both sides are important to me, I wanted them to get to know each other, I didn’t realize at the time that an escape room is perfect for this.
The room had a theme and it was 1969 and I studied different aspects about 1969, in fact on the drive from Brigham, UT to Lehi, UT we discussed different facts about the year. Now I did like my first experience, but the theme was misleading and about the only thing that was 1969 in the room were the records, which were just decoration. I expected the puzzles would have something to do with that year, but it did not.
We went into the room or trailer and I thought, “this isn’t so bad”. What followed was an hour of fun, we were looking everywhere for clues, now when I say clues I mean like patterns of colors, numbers, etc. When I first heard that we would have to solve puzzles, I thought well I’m not bad at crosswords or word finds, but the puzzles in an escape room make you think more abstractly. As we were doing the escape room, I noticed a few things, first people were communicating and interacting with each other, as time went on, this increased. The second thing that I noticed was that everyone was having fun and didn’t realize that they were getting to know each other or that we were working as a team.
Since CLUE Inn Escape is a mobile escape room and built in a trailer, I am curious what you think about an escape room in a trailer.
