The Blurb

So, how does one come up with the ideas of an escape room? What is involved in setting it up and how does it all work? Hi, my name is Sean Wilson. I own and operate Padlockd Escape Rooms. I was born in Ipswich, grew up on the Sunshine Coast, Studied (Technical Production) at QUT in Brisbane and now running my own business on the Gold Coast.


It all started when a few friends invited me to an escape room. My first reaction, what is an escape room? The short answer, you get locked in a room and have to find clues to try and get out before the time runs out. I was sold. I went along and it was surprisingly fun. The themed room, the hidden clues, the unveiling of secrets. Its all just one big OOO and WOW moment. Before we knew it the time has hit 0:00. One of the employees came in and explained how close we were to escaping (about 80% in my opinion). After it all making sense, we exited the room and entered back into reality.


Six months later and multiple escape rooms later (I must confess I had an addiction). I started thinking about the rooms and started to come up with my own ideas and making the rooms more immersive, including sound effects and adding in mood lighting. The ideas were big, but then I had to scale them back down to something achievable in a themed room. Then it was the business side. I had run a few of my own businesses before (Photo Booth, IT Services) but nothing like this. After getting some people along side me to coach me through, we successfully Launched Padlockd Escape Rooms in March 2018.
