Meet Riddle’s Staff of Escape Room Game Masters!
As we gear up for the April 1st grand opening of our new escape room, we thought it appropriate to introduce everyone to our new staff of Game Masters. Our entire staff is comprised of wonderful, upbeat individuals who are just as excited about the Cape’s new escape room as we are!
Meet our team:
“I took this photo while on an amusement park ride in Florida. I made custom T-shirts for my friends with markers to celebrate the opening of a new roller coaster. I didn’t think about whether or not the ink I used was water proof. It wasn’t! We realized this after stepping off a water ride. Seeing each other in messy, indecipherable shirts was hilarious, until we realized what T-shirts cost at theme parks!”
“I got to travel to India to be a part of a traditional Indian wedding. First thing I did when I got there was throw up three times in the taxi! Other than that, it was a beautiful, once in a lifetime experience!”
“Hi my name is Izzy and like most, high school started on the worst note possible for me, I had just moved here and hadn’t been to the school yet so I was 10 minutes late. I was panicking, my heart was racing, and I was yelling at my mom in the front who couldn’t figure out where she’s supposed to drop me off. “Just let me out, let me out!” I yelled. She eventually opted to listen to me and kissed me as I sprinted to the door, all the while checking to make sure I had everything. My fingers reached for the school buzzer, all I could hear was the thump thump of my heart in my ears. Buzzzzzzzzz.
“Hi, can you state your name and grade?”
Thump thump, thump thump. “My name is Isabella, I’m late and I’m new… Oh and I’m in 9th grade.” Thump thump, thump thump. The buzzer rang and managed to bump my bag on the doors and get caught in the second set of doors on the way to the office. Thump thump, thump thump.
“Your class is on the second floor, first class on the left if you go up the staircase over there. Good Luck!”
I nodded and tried to walk as casually as I could. I was halfway up the stairs when the announcements started. Thump thump, thump thump. I turned left and peeked into the room, taking a deep breath. I went to open the door and suddenly someone pushed it shut. I looked around, my mind screaming ‘oh my God, I’ve already been kicked out…’ The door opened again as I’m looking down the hallway for a solution when suddenly someone pulls me by the backpack into the classroom. Everyone standing up, hands over their hearts. The big hands that had pulled me in were my teacher’s… Great. To recover, I go to the empty seat in the room and I’m tugged again. I look him in the face and he gestures to put my hand over my heart and be quiet. Thump thump, thump thump. “And now for the sports”. Everyone slumped back into their desks and my teacher let go of my backpack. I go to sit down and the room is watching me. I thought it must have been the commotion earlier, curious to know who I was and why I was late. Which is when I looked down. I had egg for breakfast and the only way to eat them is with ketchup, the curse was there to haunt me with a bright red stain on the skirt I was wearing.
That’s the story of my first day in high school, which goes to show everyone has a bad day and their own series of unfortunate events which is why I’ll always do my best to make your experience at Riddle as entertaining and fun as it can be. Who wants to go to have fun and be met with the same problems of the day that you came to escape from?
“I am a mom, a lover of crafts, and dressing up in costumes. But here is a little funny story for you all about me to break the ice. One time at a convention a few years back, a group of us were playing ‘Duck, Duck, Goose’ under some escalators. I was up and tagged some random cosplayer. I was running crazy and too fast to not get tagged that I didn’t see where the wall of the escalators were… BAM! Smacked right into them, face first, like something you would see on tv. Needless to say I was tagged but went on playing like a champ.”
“This picture is from last summer, where I worked at a summer camp as the councilor in training director. I had just finished collecting wood, building a fire, and cooking a meal of mac and cheese and hotdogs on an overnight camping trip my co-director (pictured) and I had planned for our trainees. It had been a long hike to get to our site earlier in the day and by the time I had passed out the food to the group I was starving and ready to eat. However, it was then that I realized that I had forgotten to pack an extra set of bowls/silverware for the both of us, so we had to resort to eating our meal out of paper cups. It was harder than you might imagine, and quite a fitting end to that day.”
From all of us here at Riddle, we can’t wait to meet you on April 1st! Reserve your escape room now.
