HISTORY OF ESCAPOLOGY
Simon and Paul Davison, who run a successful global training and events company working with blue chip clients in the automotive industry, saw an opportunity to develop the live escape game concept further by offering a dynamic brand, high quality themed games and industry leading customer service. To achieve this they founded Escapology in 2014.
The first Escapology venue was opened in Orlando, Florida in December 2014 and quickly became the Number 1 Attraction on TripAdvisor, clearly demonstrating both popularity and high standards of customer service. During the first year of operation Escapology achieved excellent sales and profit margins. Late in 2015 Simon Millington, owner and CEO of the succesful global online retailer, Shop247.com joined the company bringing his vast business experience and online marketing skills.
Live escape game attractions are one of the fastest growing entertainment sectors in the world. We believe that high quality facilities will be the ones that rise to the top of the ratings. With the concept proven, Escapology is aiming to open 10 corporate facilities in the next two years and further expand by franchising.
Through rigorous adherence to the founding principles, practices, and procedures in both our corporate facilities and franchised locations, Escapology aims to become the Starbucks of the escape game industry.
