"This thesis lays the groundwork for the evolution of the escape room concept through an expanded guest narrative, multiple locations, and greater guest immersion. Guests have been entertained by the escape room experience for almost 20 years. The real-world versions having been inspired by the 'Escape the Room' genre of video games, as well as aspects of interactive theater, haunted houses, and scavenger hunts. Escape rooms proved the financial viability of mid budget regional themed entertainment. In this thesis, I describe a project that would expand the escape room idea into a guest narrative that could succeed as a regional theme park. Inspiration for how this could be completed comes from preexisting examples inside theme parks as well as the genres of interactive theater and modern escape rooms." --Abstract
