Escape rooms are an increasingly popular attraction in family entertainment centers around the globe. A rare sight a decade ago, today thousands of sites are popping up in communities small to large. This exciting, thrilling group activity is the perfect way to bring families and friends closer. Clubspeed is a valuable tool when it comes to running a first-class escape room at your FEC.
As fun as GoKart races at the FEC facilities we support are, we find that there’s nothing like hanging out with your friends and competing on Mario Kart. At Clubspeed, we’re big fans of how the gamification of the racing and how the different power ups can make every race feel exciting, whether you’re doing the Mushroom Cup for the first time or the 100th time.
As thrilling as it was watching the Monaco Grand Prix this past weekend, at Clubspeed we are always even more excited to see how racers and spectators alike experience the unforgettable track. Working with racing FEC’s all over the world, we love watching all of the Formula 1 events not only for the races, but for inspiration for making GoKart facilities just as unforgettable.
Business owners of Arcade FEC’s are well aware that there are so many ways to play classic games. From the “cheats” unlocked in games over the years to the ever expanding roster of new arcade experiences— there’s still nothing like the thrill of beating your favorite boss. That’s why we’re such a fan of Games Done Quick (GDQ), which is a series of charity video game marathons, featuring high-level gameplay by speedrunners raising money for charity. From harnessing well-known “cheats” to finding new ways to break whatever game they’re playing— watching the weeklong event truly harnesses the joy of seeing so many ways to play.
Now more than ever, Family Entertainment Centers are utilizing RFID wristbands not only as “tickets” into the park, but as a way to pay and experience your park in new and exciting ways. From using the bracelets for payments and as tickets to using them to send promotional photos and leaderboards from all the events at the facility, to even tracking the flow of guests in the park— opting into this technology is bringing the FEC experience to the next level.
Are you utilizing contactless check-in and payment in your family entertainment center yet? Not only does it limit contact amid COVID-19 restrictions, but in a world that is increasingly more mobile and online— customers crave making experiences more streamlined with contactless payments.
