HOUSTON (September 2017) – Houston’s premier escape room, The Escape Hunt Experience Houston announced it has established a special Hurricane Harvey relief effort by offering complimentary games to local victims and volunteers during select hours beginning September 8 through October 29. Located at 125 W. Gray St. in Midtown, The Escape Hunt Experience Houston is part of the burgeoning escape room industry that is highly popular for corporate team building and training as well as friends, families and groups.
“We wanted to do our part to bring some type of relief to our impacted families and brave volunteers who have demonstrated resilience and a strong sense of community during this devastating time,” says James Barcz, owner. “It’s amazing to see people from around the nation and world come together alongside Houstonians to assist those impacted by this disaster.”
With three unique escape room games offered at the Houston branch, “Theft of the Texas Lonestar” will be the featured escape room game for the relief effort. Participants will be “locked” in a room for 60 minutes as they become Texas Ranger Detectives trying to recover the original Texas Lone Star artifact that has been stolen from the museum exhibit of the first president of the Texas Republic, Sam Houston. A “team” works together with clues to solve a series of puzzles to find the artifact in the allotted time slot so the group can “escape” from the room.
“Our business is in a position where we can provide a distraction and temporary escape from the day to day hardships Houstonians are facing,” says Barcz. “By offering complimentary games, our goal is to provide a sense of comfort, relief, entertainment, and community as we come together to rebuild this great city.”
Complimentary games are available Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 2pm, and Sundays from 6pm to 9pm. To reserve a spot, please call 346.240.9111. For more information, please visit www.houston.escapehunt.com. Maximum reservation of six people; one reservation per family; ages 10 and up. Some additional restrictions apply.
