As the mobile escape room is inflatable it is typically recommended that from September to April the mobile escape room is set up indoors only, this is to avoid issues relating to weather which can make the mobile escape room unsuitable for use. The mobile escape creates a room-within-a-room and requires an indoor/outdoor space which is 10 meters by 10 meters by an impressive 3 metres in height. As the mobile escape room is on the larger side, the type of venue hosting the event is an important factor to consider when planning your next team building event.
