Changes and Other Things that are Also Exciting

Greetings, HER Community. Agent Voxel here.

Many things have transpired at the Houston Escape Room in the full year since I last posted here - not the least of which is having brought on board our cool new Agent in Training. Welcome, newcomer!

Ah, the dog days of summer again - so named because in ancient times the dog star Sirius was prominent in the night sky in August. The seasons have since shifted, as have the common tongues - but the dog days are doggier than ever. So if you want to have fun away from the heat, our escape rooms are a great way to do so. Spoiler alert - you don't even need a towel! And we also had our first "Bring Your Pet To Work Week" where we had a few furry Agents help out. One of them also starred in our latest YouTube video! 

'V' is a great letter to begin your agent name with. It's also Latin for the number 5 - which by crazy coincidence just so happens to be the episode number of our newest room, Episode 5! We expect to be running our alpha testing soon. To find out how and when you and your friends can participate, sign up for our newsletter. 

And we also have had a sheer amount of craziness going on this summer on our social media. The Agents showed their passion for the hot summer movies coming out. Check them out! 

Our skunkworks department have also been hard at work out on the deep seas testing a fun new technology. Super secret stuff. I cannot divulge the true nature of just how much fun it is. We've even been keeping marine mammals away from the vicinity just in case our adversaries have worked out how to communicate with loud-mouthed dolphins. More will be forthcoming when it is ready. 

Stay tuned!

Summer Time Fine

Wassup, y'all! It’s the Summer, which means more free time to explore and try new things. We at the Houston Escape Room are so excited to see even more faces come through our doors this season! 

As you guys read in last month’s blog, we had several Agents In Training. But now we want to cordially welcome Agent Oculus, Agent X, and Agent Striker to the gang!! Y'all met Agent Blue Heeler already and she's going strong and holding her own with the other Agents. 

This month we also had SEVERAL birthdays. I don’t know what it is about Geminis and escape rooms but we are very happy to have our newest Agent in Training, Agent Obsidian, Agent Voxel, Agent Yeti, the O.G. Agent of the Houston Escape Room Agent Raynor, and Agent Husky Panda!! Happy Birthday to you all! If you happen to get one of them as your facilitator make sure to tell them Happy Birthday month lol.

We would also like to thank all of the amazing fathers who came to challenge themselves in our escape rooms on Father’s Day!

Someone has also been going nuts on our social media. Have you seen the crazy movie poster and videos that have been made lately? I don't think we're through with the silliness yet so stay tuned. 

Thanks to the efforts of the team working on our 5th escape room, the public should be expecting information about beta testing in July!! So make sure to be checking out or website and social media sites to get information on it. Beta testing is always at a discounted rate. We use that opportunity to get feedback and advice straight from our H.E.R community.

Summer is flying by, so make sure you take some time out to enjoy one, or all four of our amazing escape rooms! The challenge awaits you!

Pigs In A Blanket: An Anniversary Tail

Hello H.E.R. Community,

A very important date just passed for our Agency! But more on that in a bit.

Have you seen our Special Events page lately? Because something new has arrived – Special Agent Keys! You can get your hands on a Special Agent Key by ordering one of our Special Agent or Special Agent Plus packages. This key is special in that you can get it cut into a specific fit for personal use. Also, our Special Agent Plus packages are currently on sale for $45 dollars because…

The Houston Escape Room is now three years old! The Agents held an Anniversary Celebration dinner, after which Agents Raynor and Majordomo facilitated a surprise activity they had concocted, and it was a good one! The details about the activity have to remain confidential, but let’s just say the Agents were temporarily locked head-to- head in an imaginary battle over rough waters. Overall, the Agents were excited to spend some time together eating like piggies, being merry, and remembering all the missions we had been on in the past three years.

It’s not all reminiscing at the H.E.R. Agency, however. We’re currently preparing ourselves for the upcoming summer months. The summer season is the time when more of you from the H.E.R. Community will be coming in to attempt our missions. I highly recommend buying your tickets soon because they will be going fast. You can see our summer schedule as well as book on our website. I also recommend checking out the Minute Maid Park schedule to see if your mission will be running at the same time as an event there. If so, make sure to come early to you mission to find good parking!

I'm sure by now you know that the H.E.R. Agency is always looking to recruit the best and brightest Agents in the field. Our newest recruit is Agent Blue Heeler. She's a fan of dogs and cookies. She looks forward to leading you in your missions. We also have a few more Agents In Training. Lots of fresh faces her at the HQ. 

Finally, I’d like to let you know a fun fact about my first day as an Agent, three years ago. I was on a mission with my team when I was supposed to remind them of the time they had remaining before a knockout gas filled the room. Instead of saying “45 minutes remaining”, I said “45 missions remaining.” I was so embarrassed that I became “Agent Red” from blushing!

Until next time,

It’s Almost Time

Salutations, HER Community.

As you may have heard, Agent Yeti, Agent Chisel, Agent Gig, and I have been working diligently these past two months to bring you the latest and greatest room. As you may gather, it is no easy task making an escape room. This room is intended for 2-5 people instead of the normal 4-10 but, let me tell you, that doesn’t make the design process any easier. We will begin testing the room within the next few weeks, which is very exciting. If you are interested in Beta testing a room for us please sign up for our newsletter.

In other news, we have nabbed us a couple of Agents In Training. It is always good to hear we will have more support in the field. I suspect next month’s blog will announce our newest agent inductees.

We also broke our record for the most Spanish sessions held this month. Please make sure to let your Spanish speaking friends and family know about our Spanish sessions. We would love to break out record again! 

This month, several free tickets were given to customers who checked into Yelp and signed up for out newsletter. If you would like to keep up with all the new stuff going on with Houston Escape Room and receive notifications out about our giveaways and promotions, please sign up for our newsletter. 

And to cap things off, we had our first gender reveal! What, did you not know we do things like that? We've done pregnancy reveals and surprise wedding proposals in the past. It was awesome to be able to host a gender reveal for the first time. You can set a special mission for someone special in your life by checking our Special Events page.

Thank you for reading and don’t forget to praise the sun.

The Madness of March

Hello, HER Community. 

 

Did you enjoy your Spring Break? We enjoyed having more of you come to our Houston Escape Room headquarters. The missions are as challenging as ever and we'll have more to offer you soon. 

 

One thing we really pushed this month was our Spanish sessions. If you never knew, we have a version of Mo's Safehouse that is completely in Spanish. We even had a family come through and give their thoughts about it, which you can watch here. And to show that we really want you to experience, we dedicated our latest Facebook Live to it. If you haven't seen that, you missed out on the Agents playing Macho Nacho. It was hilarious. 

 

It was mentioned last month, but our latest escape room is still under construction. Agent Solaire, Chisel, Gig, and Yeti are cooking up something really good for you all. Get excited. 

 

New rooms means we need more Agents to help run these missions. Yes, we are hiring! If you or anyone you know is interested in becoming an elite Agent at the Houston Escape Room, please apply. Join our crew of mischievous misfits. 

 

While we give you monthly updates on what has gone on via this blog, we have a newsletter! If you sign up for it, not only will you be kept up to date on the latest things going on at HER, but you will be the first to know about beta testing our newest escape rooms, know when new rooms launch, and if we have any specials or deals going on. Sign up today for all of the confidential information.  

 

And I will end this blog entry to let you know that our Agent Pow-Poper will be going away on another special mission. If you ever had him as your facilitator, I'm sure you'll remember his smile and that he made sure you left with a smile on your face. See you later, Agent Pow-Poper.
