New escape room will lock up your team

Coronation Square's Create on the Square has developed Laburinthos, a new escape room enterprise in Cheltenham.

Business teams, community organisations and groups of friends and family will be locked up until they find the clues to enable them to escape captivity.

For business teams, the purpose of the escape room is to develop co-operative behaviours, leadership and influencing skills and mental agility, as well as to have fun.

Author /creator of the escape room's scenarios, designed to develop patience and perceptiveness is Megan Prendergast, who now plans to extend these exercises to wider audiences.

Laburinthos started as a small project and has now grown to become a successful limited company.

Potential future developments include new Gloucestershire venues and more corporate events, children's activities and other work with social enterprises. There is also a market for private events (to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries etc).

As product director, Megan will create new products, design the rooms, manage the marketing and develop customer relationships.

Previous escape room topics have included the detection of crimes, unveiling mysteries, hauntings, conspiracies, bank robberies, historic scenarios and the activities of malevolent witches.
