The Secret Chambers is Now Hiring! We are looking for Chamber Hosts – The FACE of our Escape Room Challenges! This fun, unique job opportunity is part Character Acting, part Game Show Host in a live action Escape Room Challenge environment!
Check out our website: https://thesecretchambers.com
The ideal candidates should possess strong improvisational acting ability and regular weekday hourly availability (with preference towards candidates who can work anytime on weekends, holidays – Our busiest days!).
The Secret Chambers is open year round! That means this is NOT a one-time “gig” and we are NOT acting “for a season”. All new-hires will go through a 90-day “tryout” phase where you will receive training on our Escape Rooms (including how to reset everything back to one after a group has left).
If you prove yourself to be a good fit for the organization (and if the players love your performance), then we will increase your earning potential by increasing the number of show dates we schedule you for!
WHAT IS AN ESCAPE ROOM CHALLENGE?
Players gather in one of our themed puzzle rooms to gather clues, solve puzzles, and attempt to escape within a 60-minute time limit! Think of it as a real-life game show or video game, but with a live-action theatrical twist that immerses players into the action!
Presently we offer two themes: “The Pirate Chamber” takes place in the Caribbean in the year 1718, and “The Cthulhu Chamber” takes place in Rhode Island in 1949. We are expanding in 2016 / 2017 and adding four additional rooms to this line-up… there is plenty of opportunity for upward growth within the interactive entertainment industry!
