Behind the Scenes of Creating an Escape Room
As you step into an escape room and cast your eye over the stunning scenery which, at Omescape London, includes movie-like sets and high-tech props, you could wonder with awe what it took to build an escape room like this. A lot of work certainly goes into creating an escape room, so let’s go behind the scenes.
What’s the Story? It’s the Story
At the core of every escape room game at Omescape is a riveting story – and, indeed, escape room creation can feel rather like making a film. After all, there’s not only a realistic, script-based story but also a uniquely-designed playing environment in which we tell it.
However, we always want to keep our players guessing – just like you might often find yourself guessing when watching a great film. For this reason, we carefully weave a range of intriguing puzzles into each story before we finally open that escape room to the public.
Difficult, but Not too Difficult
Crucial to making escape room puzzles is striking just the right balance in difficulty for the players. However, different facets of a puzzle can require different skills, which is why we urge you to come along with a varied party of participants. The lowest number of players we permit per game is three.
As a general rule, participants in the 12-16 age bracket tend to be good at finding clues, while adults are typically better at deciphering them. Also, don’t fear that you need the encyclopaedic knowledge of a winner on The Chase; our brain-teasers are aimed at everyday people, not university professors.
The Future is Here, Thanks to Sophisticated Technology
As we put together a game, we also endeavour to cleverly implement technological features in order to enhance the overall experience and pleasantly surprise our players. These features include fully mechanical and automated features that could make you feel as though genuine magic is in the air.
High-end technology also makes each escape room feel fully interactive, as though you are being immersed in an exciting new world. Indeed, our range of escape room options includes VR escape room games, giving you a new way to enjoy the up-and-coming technology of virtual reality.
Naturally, in making all of these games, we have extensively tapped into our creative streak – and, now, as you join one of the Omescape London games, you will be able to recall this insight into hwhat goes into creating an escape room. Why not place an escape room booking now?
