The Challenges of Starting an Escape Room
Hello there Enigma Roomies,
It’s been a while since we’ve let you know how things have been going on this blog and it’s simply because we’ve been busy making sure things have gone smoothly.
As we’re entering our fourth week, I thought I’d bring you up to date on how things have been running at The Enigma Room.
In the first three weeks of operation we:
Watched 109 games
Introduced three new members to the team - Jeremy, Olivia and Sylvia
Helped one guy propose to his girlfriend, successfully I might add!
Drank at least 40 cups of coffee
Needless to say, things have been a bit busy, but thankfully all the time we spent waiting to open allowed us to test our games and systems to make sure that we were confident with what we have to offer you guys. Although that hasn’t stopped us from constantly improving what we do and adding new features. We’ve worked out the bugs in our hint system and there are further improvements that are on the way!
However, it’s not just us enjoying our work, we’ve had a range of escape room aficionados come to try us out and they all agree that we are definitely one of the best escape rooms in Sydney.
Things haven’t been all rosy though. Every new small business has some kind of hiccup, some source of friction, a catalyst that threatens to tear the place apart.
I am of course referring to our use of cucumber water.
Matt and I are staunchly divided on this issue: I feel as though cucumber water is a refreshing drink that utilises cucumber’s nutritious and cooling properties.
Matt on the other hand feels like he’s drinking salad. And as the saying goes, you don’t make friends with (drinking) salad.
There’s only one way to settle such a vigorous debate… Thunderdome.
No? Too much? Ok, how about a vote? Leave a comment here, vote using the poll on Facebook or just tweet at us using the hashtags #cucumberWaterYes or #cucumberWaterNo.UPDATE - 25th March 2015
Well folks, we've compiled the votes and cucumber water is victorious on this day! I am raising my hands in triumph while Matt begrudgingly sips from his ice cold extra refreshing beverage. He says he's not happy with the result, but I can see in his eyes that he loves it.
Thanks to everyone who voted, and for those who didn't know which side to stand on, the only way to truly be sure is to come in to The Enigma Room and try it out for yourself!
