I work in an escape game center where 1 hour play sessions follow one another. I have a big concern: I do not want the previous group of players (let's call it group 1) to meet the next group of players (let's call it group 2).
Biggest problem is for security reasons I can't have more than 19 people in the building which means only one group at a time! One group may reach 6 players. We have several rooms for each playgroup.
I do not have a second exit where I could discreetly make out the group 1. I can not leave a big delay between the groups either.
My temporary solution
Cuurently, my only solution is to keep Group 2 waiting on the street until Group 1 is out. Players do not like to wait in the street, especially since it's cold right now!
If I shorten the debriefing with group 1, the group leaves frustrated; if I let group 2 wait, he gets angry, which is normal.
I have no idea how I could manage this!
Do you have any suggestions for me?
