PACIFIC RIM: SHATTERDOME DEFENDERS Real Escape Game Set to Offer Giant-Size Entertainment in March 2018
SCRAP Entertainment, the leading pioneer of live escape entertainment, and Legendary Entertainment, a global leader in media and content creation, have partnered for a custom escape room set in the Pacific Rim universe to open on March 23rd in San Francisco's Japantown. The real-life game offers fans an opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of Pacific Rim like never before.
Players will get to try their hands at becoming key personnel in the Pan Pacific Defense Corp, the global organization that bravely stands to defend humanity against the deadly Kaiju threat. Players will be thrown into an emergency scenario in a secure room where the assembled team will have one full hour to interact with their environment while solving mysterious puzzles in order to stop an impending Kaiju attack. The San Francisco launch of Pacific Rim: Shatterdome Defenders marks SCRAP's first Hollywood-based escape room for its home territory, but it also acts as a special nod to the film franchise's history.
"San Francisco is not only where we launched the first escape game ever in the US back in 2012, but it is also the site of the original Kaiju attack in the Pacific Rim Universe," stated Kazu Iwata, CEO & Game Designer for SCRAP. "It made all the sense in the world for us to partner with Legendary, a fellow pioneer in the entertainment arena, to create this epic escape experience."
In keeping with Legendary's commitment to creating fully immersive content, James Ngo, SVP of Franchise Management, commented, "We love any opportunity to get the fans involved in the storytelling process. Building an escape room experience with SCRAP not only provided the perfect complement to our comics, gaming and film platforms for the Pacific Rim Universe, but it also gives us a chance to allow the world of the film to come alive for its loyal fandom in an exciting new way."
SCRAP's Pacific Rim: Shatterdome Defenders Real Escape Game will run every Tuesday through Sunday and does not require any prior knowledge to play. Game sessions must be reserved online, and tickets can be purchased now at http://www.realescapegame.com/pacificrim
