trip adviserCorporate event for summer interns- I manage the internship program for my organization and for a farewell event we went to Escape Hunt - Houston. I had a group of 35 people, they were able to host us very comfortably. They split us up into four rooms, one room was for a group who has done an escape room before. They provided exceptional customer service and exceeded my expectations for my event. It really shows that they love what they do and want to make sure you have a great time. There facility has multiple rooms and is large to host any size group. I highly recommend this to anyone, regardless of the size of your group!

Trip AdviserBetter than any other Room Escape in Houston - Really! I have been to many room escapes - This one was high tech and laid out in a way that you could solve the problem in the time you were given. It was really cool and interactive. We did the simple Lone Star one. We plan on going to the others now too. What a great experience. We also plan on bringing our Networking Group there too. 

trip adviserBest Escape Room I've Been To - I've been to 5 or 6 escape rooms before and this was by far the best run. They obviously invested a lot of money and it paid off. It felt very high tech and the contraptions worked like a charm. I will definitely go back soon.

trip adviserApollo 13 Escape Was Awesome - We had never been to an escape room and decided to try this with the family for my wife’s birthday. Four of our party have actually worked in the NASA Mission Control Center, so we were extremely impressed with the attention to detail for this escape. There were 9 of us in the adventure. Three were Apollo 13 astronauts, one was a CAPCOM, one was the Flight Director and the rest were Flight Controllers. We made it out with 6.86 seconds to spare. We had so much fun, we will definitely go back and try the other rooms.

Escape HuntEscape rooms are the fastest growing entertainment venue in the U.S. The U.S. market is young with the first U.S. escape rooms opening around 2014. We estimate that 80-90% of the public have not yet experienced escape rooms and that enjoyment rates are high. Corporations are embracing this method of team building because it enhances team bonding in a fun way that allows everyone to participate, regardless of physical or athletic ability. Our facilities are large enough to host events with catered food and a bar. In addition to corporate team building, our facilities have been used for board meetings, workshops and sit-down dinners.

escapeVery high growth opportunity. As Houston’s Premiere Escape Room, Escape Hunt - Houston is a professionally run escape room business achieving higher prices and doesn’t rely on discounting to attract customers. It has a reputation as one of the best escape rooms in Houston. The physical size of our lounge and reception area gives us a HUGE competitive advantage with corporate customers as we can host corporate groups and events as large as 70 people. 

Reason for Selling - Retirement & Grandkids. We started this business and have brought it to the success level it is in Houston. New ideas and fresh energy will take it to its next level.
