VFX Foam Props and Foam Theming for Puzzle and Escape Room Attractions

We’ve started diving into the Puzzle and Escape Room Attraction Industry and have been having a blast making some really fun props and some themed panels specific to the room’s theme.  The project we’re currently working on includes a fully themed custom entrance, 3 separate and fully themed rooms with unique puzzles and props in each room, a themed hidden passage, and a photo opportunity prop that allows the customer to either print pictures on-site and charge for the service or load the pictures to Facebook to allow customers to tag, share, and like the picture online (which also results in free marketing for the business and usually results in a “like” on your page).  While we do work on large projects, we wanted to discuss some options for the majority of the smaller scale businesses in this industry.

VFX Foam focuses on foam props and foam themed elements to help bring another level of immersion to the experience.  Imagine having an Egyptian Tomb themed attraction and instead of just having some puzzles specific to the theme, you install themed panels that resemble an Egyptian tomb theme so when customers walk into the attraction it looks just like they are actually walking into an old tomb complete with ambient sounds such as torches flickering and scarabs crawling around on the floor.

VFX Foam also offers consulting services for Puzzle and Escape rooms.  An ideal situation for this service is if you know you want a theme or maybe have an idea of the theme and you’re not sure how to execute the plan.  Our team can develop a storyline that would include puzzles, special effects such as ambient sounds or things being triggered by an event, LED lighting, RFID components, and we also have custom built software to help you manage the entire experience.  We also offer an exclusive service where we can design a custom experience with a theme that would only be sold to you so you can rest assured you’ll have something unique that no one else has.

Our high density foam props and themed panels can also come hard coated in our VFX Tough Coat.  VFX Tough Coat adds a durable plastic-like shell over the foam to make sure it lasts.  This coating can also come in a Fire Rated version for companies that must meet specific building codes.

Our company also has the ability to make certain custom puzzles, depending on the scope of the project.  We have the ability to embed RFID components so that locks are unlocked automatically once a puzzle is solved.  We can also include sound or different effects that are automatically triggered when certain events happen.

These are just some of the services that we offer that are specific to the Escape Room and Puzzle Room industry.  If you have a need for a specific prop, theming, or element, feel free to reach out to us at 888-291-2720 x102 or by email at rob@vfxfoam.com.
