Escape rooms have become a popular form of entertainment, offering players a chance to test their problem-solving skills and work together as a team to escape a themed room. But what many people don't realize is that behind the scenes, there's a dedicated team of game hosts working to ensure that players have the best possible experience. In this article, we'll take a closer look at a day in the life of an escape room game host at Unity Escape Rooms.


The day starts with a pre-game preparation, checking that everything is in order before the first game of the day. This includes checking all the props, puzzles and devices to ensure they're in proper working condition, making sure that all clues are in place, and conducting a quick clean of the room. game hosts are also in charge of setting up and resetting the rooms between games, ensuring that everything is ready for the next group of players.

Player Introduction

Once the players arrive, the game host will greet them and provide a brief introduction, explaining the rules of the room and what they need to do to escape. They'll also answer any questions the players may have, and help them get settled before the game begins.

The Game Starts

As the game starts, the game host's role shifts to that of a monitor, keeping an eye on the players via closed-circuit cameras, making sure that everyone is safe and having a good time.

They'll also be listening to players, being ready to give clues or hints if a player gets stuck, but not giving away the answers. It's a delicate balance, as the game host must ensure that players are challenged but not frustrated.

The Game Ends

When the game is over, the game host will debrief the players, answering any questions they may have and discussing how they did. The game host will also take group photos and finally they'll collect feedback from the customers, which we use to improve the room or the overall experience.

Wait, There's More!

But their work doesn't stop there, they also need to reset the room and prepare it for the next game, which can include anything from putting props back in their original locations to restocking clue envelopes. And if there's down time, they may work on creating new puzzles or clues, making modifications to the room based on customer feedback, or even repairing damaged props.
