At our escape room’s in Toowoomba Queensland, we prefer to make everything ourselves. We have 10 3D Printers, a CNC Machine and a lot of other tools in an offsite workshop. Below is a gauge that we designed for our Chernobyl room *now discontinued* We have come a long way since then and our painting techniques have improved. When we do escape rooms ourselves we have noticed, the best rooms are from independent creative owners. And the worst experiences are usually from escape room owners that care more about margins than creativity. When owners buy pre-made mass produced props and puzzles. They may look good and function but when you start seeing them all over the place it does nothing to advance the industry.
