Live Escape Room Experience in Oxfordshire
- Excellent reputation
- Well-equipped premises
- Strong online presence
- Central location
- Room for development
This is a unique opportunity to take ownership of an escape room situated in a central part of Oxfordshire, Banbury. The business benefits from being in a central location where there has been recent investment in the city, with more eateries, a new development to the shopping centre, a cinema and a hotel. All of which, draws more traction to the business.
Teams must work together to beat the clock and escape one of the centre’s three themed rooms, utilising clues to help them crack the escape code before the allotted time runs out. The experience is favoured by everyone, from families and friends to corporate businesses during team-building days and has gained fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor since opening its doors in 2018.
A passionate new owner looking for an exciting lifestyle change, is presented with a turnkey operation with no surrounding competition, available for immediate purchase.
Located on a main road in Banbury’s town centre, just a 2 minute walk away from the train station, the business is easily accessible to visitors near and far.
Being such a central location, the business benefits from many corporate team building events from company’s north and south divisions.
The centre has three escape rooms; bank robbery, chocolate factory and experimental laboratory, which attract a wide clientele. Two out of three rooms can only be used used at once at present due to the room to game master ratio. Taking on another game master would allow for all rooms to be enjoyed at the same time. There are also 2 toilets and a kitchen/staff room.
Its online presence is also superb, running a highly informative and eye-catching website alongside its active Facebook page with close to 800 followers. It also boasts over 100 reviews on Tripadvisor, 99 of these of which are 5 star, and is rated no.1 out of 9 Fun & Games in Banbury.
A perfect acquisition for someone already in or looking to get into the events industry, a new owner could easily take the business to the next level.
At present, the business owner has not invested in professional marketing, leaving bags of potential for a new owner to partner with local restaurants, hotels and other businesses in the tourism/service industry for team building activities. Due to the current owner’s other commitments, the centre is also only open part-time, around 15-20 hours a week, which could easily be increased to full-time hours. With the UK’s escape room scene continuing to grow, the business will inevitably thrive as a result.
The existing owner would be happy to stay on for a transitional period to ensure a smooth handover of business operations.
