Our definition is way cooler...
Escape Rooms come in many different shapes and sizes, though quality varies a lot. There are specific qualities that set Escape Hour Gig Harbor apart from the rest.
Originality: MANY Escape Rooms purchase their escape room story lines and games from 3rd parties which means that their room is not original and can be found all over the globe. EHGH prides itself on 100% original content. We spend months and months developing and testing our room ideas before they are presented before you. We think of EVERYTHING. Story line, props, flow, the actual game, etc. When visiting EHGH you are guaranteed an original experience that you can't find anywhere else in the world!
Quality: We put our content through rigorous quality tests. We make sure that all our props are authentic and not cheap plastic replicas, we insure our game flows in a logical manner to maximize the experience for our guests. We also put each staff member through hours of training to provide top of the line customer service.
We Are a Family Business: We are not a franchise. We are a family business that wanted to bring quality entertainment to the area. Being a family business: we like to treat our staff and customers like they're part of our family. We love to have genuine interaction with everyone that spends an hour with us! We love our community!
