ESCAPE ROOM

Guests can now en­joy chal­leng­ing escape rooms at the Inn­side Ham­burg, Manch­ester and Palma ho­tels.

Inn­side by Meliá has teamed up with Span­ish escape room spe­cial­ists Mis­sion Escape to launch Inn­side City Mys­ter­ies. These ex­clu­sive and ex­cit­ing escape room games were launched this sum­mer across prop­er­ties in key cities such as Manch­ester, Ham­burg and Palma.

Inn­side is a global leader in the ‘bleisure’ sec­tor, ca­ter­ing to both busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers. This unique cross-sec­tion of trav­eller has been iden­ti­fied as the ‘work­trip­per ’: the ho­tel guest who wants to fully ex­pe­ri­ence the cities they visit, whether for busi­ness or for plea­sure. This blur­ring of bound­aries be­tween work and play in­spired the Inn­side Escape Rooms, de­signed to en­ter­tain guests, yet ver­sa­tile enough to be used as team build­ing ex­er­cises for work col­leagues.

The Inn­side City Mys­ter­ies are unique to each city and in­spired by the lo­cal cul­ture and his­tory. This gives play­ers the op­por­tu­nity to fully im­merse them­selves in their new sur­round­ings, even whilst work­ing. The ed­u­ca­tional format en­sures that the game ex­pe­ri­ence is both en­ter- tain­ing and re­ward­ing, pro­vid­ing trav­ellers and lo­cals alike with a stim­u­lat­ing way of en­gag­ing with the city.

These games are par­tic­u­larly ef­fec­tive team build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, as busi­ness col­leagues must come to­gether as a group to achieve a goal. Each mem­ber must un­der­stand their in­di­vid­ual role within the team, ap­pre­ci­at­ing each other ’s strengths as well as their own. By adopt­ing a col­lec­tive prob­lem-solv­ing mind­set and or­gan­is­ing them­selves ef­fec­tively, the teams de­velop and im­prove

their in­ter­per­sonal re­la­tion­ships as they work to­gether to com­plete chal­lenges.

Inn­side Manch­ester ’s ‘Relic Hunt’ game draws on one of the largest col­lec­tions of pa­pyrus ever found in Egypt, which is held within the iconic John Ry­land’s li­brary in the city cen­tre. Inn­side Ham­burg Hafen’s game, ‘Mummy Mys­tery’, re­volves around mum­mies held in the An­thro­po­log­i­cal Mu­seum of Ham­burg. In each game, play­ers are tasked with un­cov­er­ing the mys­tery of dis­ap­pear­ing ar­ti­facts, solv­ing puz­zles and com- plet­ing chal­lenges within an Inn­side ho­tel room be­fore time runs out. For those who suc­cess­fully com­plete the chal­lenge, prizes in­clude cock­tails, beer and wine, as well as a 20% dis­count on food and free park­ing.

Sofia Mun­taner, Global Brand Mar­ket­ing Ex­ec­u­tive, said, ‘We are ex­cited to launch Meliá Ho­tels In­ter­na­tional Inn­side City Mys­tery Escape Rooms for the pub­lic. Our busi­ness guests will en­joy these fun and en­gag­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, and leisure guests and res­i­dents can ex­pe­ri­ence an ex­cit­ing day out with their friends’.

THE INN­SIDE CITY MYS­TER­IES ARE UNIQUE TO EACH CITY AND IN­SPIRED BY THE LO­CAL CUL­TURE AND HIS­TORY.

Escape rooms are ad­ven­ture games in which a group of play­ers are locked in a room. At some Inn­side ho­tels, they’re al­ready are­sound­ing suc­cess.
