Parents often sit in the birthday room when kids are on the playground and can watch all the action from the many security cameras placed in the play area.
“I tell parents the only problem we’ve seen so far is when the parents tell the kids it’s time to go. It usually doesn’t go well,” Brad said with a smile.
The kids not wanting to leave is a good sign for Starved Rock Entertainment as well as the older kids and adults who may find themselves wanting a few more minutes in the escape rooms.
“I’ve put a lot of time and effort into these things so I’m glad,” Brad said. “And the biggest thing that I’m glad about is that people are having fun. I just want people to have fun.”
