Let the Games Begin with Escape Rooms

The gaming phenomenon known as the escape room first appeared in Japan in 2007. Since then, the social play experience has become widespread across the world. In March of 2016, the Boston Globe reported an astounding 3,900 percent increase in the industry from 2014-2015 alone. Now, escape rooms can be found in almost every major city in the U.S. and have recently been expanding to the suburbs.

If you are not yet familiar, escape rooms involve a group of participants “locked” into a room and challenged to solve a series of puzzles using brainpower and cooperation in order to escape. Proving to be a fun and unique test of team spirit, escape rooms have gained popularity as corporate team-building events, date nights or just good bouts of socializing.

In response to this emerging opportunity, escape rooms have joined the growing list of exposures considered under USLI’s Games and Entertainment product. Our diverse appetite includes an extensive group of eligible entertainers. The top classes of entertainers are DJs, bands, psychics and magicians — but don’t forget holiday characters as the cooler months approach!
