Organized by Puzzle Break’s Nate Martin, we’ll be facilitating a discussion between Nate, Edwin Tsui of The Locked Room, and Debra and Alex Beardsley of It’s A Trap!

The panel is titled The Escape Room Revolution: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow and it will be held at the Sphinx Theatre on Saturday, September 3, 2016, from 2:30 – 3:30 PM.

Escape rooms are taking the world of entertainment by storm. How did we get here? How has the evolution of live-action escape room experience design mirrored that of their video game forefathers? How has it diverged? What are the hottest trends in various parts of the world, what’s next, and how will it shape the future of immersive entertainment? Join industry pioneers and experts in a discussion about the inescapably thrilling past, present, and future of the live-action escape room.
