Playing escape games is a lot of fun. Opening escape rooms is even more fun. But if the game is fun, then opening the escape room is like a very interesting tasks, when you come up with a script, design, riddles, and routine things, such as decorating the utility rooms, creating a website and of course choosing a system for online booking of a games.

Of course, you can say that you do not need it - because you can take an order for an escape game by phone. But nevertheless, the online booking system is beneficial to you and your customers. For the client, this is a simple, convenient way to choose a game for yourself on the right day at the right time. For you - reducing the risk of mistakes in booking, misunderstanding of customer desires, saving time.

Listed below are the best booking systems for escape rooms.


BOOKEO


One of the main advantages of Bookeo is the ability to create a widget exactly for the escape room. Also this service supports a large number of languages.

You can create a standalone reservation page or integrate the widget into the escape room website. For customers, the reservation system is intuitive and accessible on the mobile version. In addition to the standard ability to book a game, through Bookeo, you can configure escape game booking offers for celebrations, at special prices, with gifts and promotions. A 30 day free trial.


XOLA


Xola does not have a free trial period, the language of service is only English. These are disadvantages, but at the same time Xola has a number of advantages.

It has a branded widget for escape game. Intuitively customizable and easy to integrate on the site. Convenient for players - to book a game, they need to make only three clicks. Remarketing letters, which the system automatically sends to your customers if they have not completed the booking, are very valuable in this service.

Like Bookeo, Xola is convenient because you can make prices and offers an escape games for a wide variety of groups of people for a variety of occasions.


NOWESCAPE


The only online booking system designed exclusively for escape rooms.

Free - you can install a system on your website for free and use it for free for an unlimited amount of time.

In addition to the widget for the site, Nowescape also offers to make an additional booking page on it's resource. For each completed reservation on the Nowescape website, you will be charged 20% of the amount of the reservation. On the other hand, you will receive free advertising on the Internet and premium placement in the list of escape rooms on a site Nowescape (the site is very popular, authoritative both among players and among the creators of escape games).

The booking system itself has a nice interface, easily configured. Again, you can set up exit games offers with different prices, promotions.


BOOKIFY


Bookify - online booking system with the largest trial period - 90 days. Simple, has a widget for escape rooms. Easy to set up game schedule. Booking widget can be branded, which makes it easy to enter the system on your site so that it does not fall out of the general concept.

Easily sets different prices for different games. You can charge for a person, and for the full game. In addition, several photos can be added to the profile of each game.


CHECKFRONT


Unlike the previous ones, this online booking system does not have special widgets for escape rooms, so it takes time to set it up. In addition, she has the smallest trial period - only 21 days.

On the other hand, Checkfront supports a large number of languages both in the admin panel and in the booking widget. Also in it you can set different price offers.

Checkfront offers a mobile widget management application for site owners.

In general, the service is not bad, but not very convenient for escape games. It may be a good alternative if other services are unavailable for some reasons.


I will not recommend any particular reservation system for the escape game. What may be incomprehensible to me may be quite obvious to you, and vice versa. All widgets have their pros and cons. Only by trying, you will understand exactly which reservation system is convenient for you and the goals that you set for yourself and your escape room.


With respect, Vladimir Kalugin.
