28/06/20 - Open Plea from Kent Escape Room Reviews
A gentle, yet open plea from me to you...
Its no secret that the escape room industry is facing a difficult time. Please, all I ask, is that you continue to support the fantastic work by the hugely talented owners, designers and game masters of Kent's phenomenal escape rooms.
Whether a company decide to open on the 4th July or whether they need extra time to prepare for visitors, they need your support and help.
The frustrations you have to get through that escape room door are small in comparison to the frustrations these small business owners have had to open their doors for you.
Expect to see some changes such as -
- Staggered room opening times
- Further, intensive cleaning between games
- Limited numbers and booking availability
- Enforced hand cleaning
- Temperature checks
These are being put in place for your safety, and however annoying they may be, I'm sure your health is important to you!
So for now -
* Stay safe,
* Stay healthy,
* Keep enjoying them play at home games,
* Buy gift vouchers...
and when the moment comes, whether that's this week, next week, next month or even next year - book your experience and Happy Escaping!
Thank you for your continued support of this fantastic industry.
