HOW WE GOT STARTED...

IN NOVEMBER OF 2016, WE DID OUR FIRST ESCAPE ROOM. WE FAILED MISERABLY, BUT LOVED THE EXPERIENCE. WE WERE HOOKED! IN A MATTER OF MONTHS, WE COMPLETED NEARLY 40 ESCAPE ROOMS. EVERY ASPECT OF AN ESCAPE GAME WAS APPEALING TO US: THE PUZZLES, THE IMMERSION, AND THE COMMUNITY. WE FOUND OURSELVES DISCUSSING ABOUT ELEMENTS WE ENJOYED IN EACH ROOM AND DREAMING ABOUT PUZZLES WE COULD CONTRIBUTE TO THE INDUSTRY. WE SLOWLY ENTERTAINED THE IDEA OF OUR OWN, BUT HOW? WE ARE YOUNG ADULTS WITH FAST-PACED LIVES AND FULL-TIME JOBS THAT KEPT US BUSY.

WE STARTED TO MEET IN OUR FREE TIME TO DISCUSS OUR VENTURE INTO THE ESCAPE ROOM INDUSTRY. WE TALKED ABOUT POTENTIAL THEMES, PUZZLES, AND WHERE WE WANTED TO DO BUSINESS. WE'VE MADE A LOT OF MISTAKES SINCE WE STARTED IN APRIL OF 2017 AND EVEN GAVE UP FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS, BUT WE KNEW THAT THIS WAS SOMETHING WE WANTED TO SEE THROUGH. WE FINALLY FOUND OUR HOME IN FOUNTAIN VALLEY AND BUILT OUR FIRST ROOM WHILE WAITING TO HEAR BACK FROM THE CITY. 

OUR HARD WORK FINALLY PAID OFF WHEN WE GOT OUR BUSINESS LICENSE FROM THE CITY AFTER MONTHS OF WAITING. FOR US, THIS WAS THE MOST CHALLENGING EXPERIENCE WE'VE EVER GONE THROUGH, BUT COMPLETELY WORTH IT. WE ARE STILL YOUNG ADULTS WITH FAST-PACED LIVES AND FULL-TIME DAY JOBS, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY: IF YOU DO WHAT YOU LOVE, YOU'LL NEVER WORK A DAY IN YOUR LIFE.
