There is a wide variety in escape room design, quality, and execution across the country and around the world. While much of the variation is due to market influences, there is also a lot of variabilities just in execution. Escape Room Techs is all about the tech in escape rooms, and we focus on creating safe, reliable, and high-quality escape room experiences through the application of technology and engineering.
Dear Escape Game Owners, Congratulations! You have joined the latest entertainment craze by running an Escape Room! So many things to do. Find a location, deal with inspectors, marketing, and oh yeah, build your escape rooms! Starting a new business is a tough enough venture by itself and everyone comes at it from different angles.
As the Escape Room industry has evolved, technology has been a key driver in creating higher quality and automated experiences. While Gen 1 games with all locks and keys have a retro feel, they limit the immersive experiences ER operators want to create to serve their market demand. There are a few major ways technology has contributed to the ER experience and prop construction has been a key factor.
RFID and escape games seem to go hand in hand. The appearance of magic and automation goes a long way into the overall quality of the experience, as opposed to combination and code locks which may not fit your story line. Learn about our AEI FX1000 and AEI FX200
In October 2016, Anidea Engineering (Anidea) had an opportunity to collaborate with America’s Escape Games (AEG), who is a premier developer and franchiser of escape games in Orlando, FL. Anidea was hired to develop and install electronic props. The major technology we used in this project was RFID, Radio-Frequency Identification. Anidea leveraged the technology to create a network of sensors to monitor various game pieces throughout several props and integrated them into themed components. With RFID and our electronics, the props fit perfectly in the game and work like magic.
