You have your escape room ideas in your mind and you are ready to start your own business. However, in addition to the financial and business aspects, your success will also depend on some other essential factors. Do your best to avoid these common mistakes!
Designing escape game puzzles which are too easy or too difficult
Your players want a challenge, but they also want to feel the satisfaction of the escape. That’s why, when creating your escape room puzzles, you need to find the right balance between being too simple and being too difficult. Make them solvable, yet still enjoyable!
Finding the right price
The price of your service will have a huge impact on your traffic. We know that your income has to cover all your expenses and you also want to make a profit, but you also have to think about what the customers are prepared to pay: The ideal price which is affordable for your players and profitable for your business.
On the other hand, you can position your brand by setting the price. Higher prices are naturally associated with a premium service and exclusive escape rooms, while lower prices are viewed as low-end rooms. Getting to know our escape room themes and packages will help you to define the ideal price for each of your different escape rooms!
Hire enthusiastic staff
Your game masters will become the face of your business. You want people to love your brand, right? Then you need to find friendly, enthusiastic and communicative staff with a constant smile on their faces.
Your future employees also need to be reliable as you won’t be there to hold their hand all the time. They will be responsible for your business, so be careful and particular when appointing your human resources.
Ditching maintenance work
Of course, once you have brought your escape room ideas alive, the job is far from done? Having your escape room ready doesn’t mean that you don’t have any further work to do. Maintenance is the key to your long-term success! Accidents can happen as players may unintentionally break something in the room. Also, the software or the props may suffer some damages that needs to be fixed as soon as possible.
Although you can save money on maintenance work, in the long run this damage will cost you more than you can afford. Our solution is a continuous maintenance service for a cost-effective monthly fee. For further information check out our escape room prices!
