Escape room businesses from all over Australia get together for Escape Week charity event.
What is Escape Week?
Escape Room businesses across Australia have teamed up to create Australia's first Escape Week. From the 11th - 17th of September, 20% of all profits from participating Escape Rooms will go to The Black Dog Institute.
Escape Week is aiming to raise $30,000 through participating businesses and individual donations.
What is an Escape Room?
Escape rooms are a fun and interactive team game where you are placed in a specially designed room and have to use the items and information you find to solve a series of unique puzzles.
Each time you solve a puzzle you’ll be given additional information for the next puzzle, and so on. Rooms often have a specific theme or story line unique to that room. Complete the room with your team before the time runs out to be successful.
Why Black Dog Institute?
We wanted to support a charity that has an impact on our customers. Mental illness affects 1 in 5 Australians and The Black Dog Institute is dedicated to understanding, preventing and treating mental illness.
An escape room is a great activity for people to do with their friends, family and colleagues. It's an opportunity to work as a team away from phones and social media, a chance for people to get out of their heads and have some fun.
Escape Rooms in Australia?
Escape rooms have been in Australia for about 3 years. The craze is spreading fast. There are now over 200 escape room games in the country spread across 80 locations, and more are on their way. Despite the rapid growth in popularity escape rooms are still relatively unheard of. Each escape room offers their players a unique experience in a creative world.
