    EE 13: Strange Bird Immersive: A Conversation with Haley and Cameron

    Listen to our review of The Man From Beyond by Strange Bird Immersive, a meticulously crafted blend of immersive theatre and escape rooms. The review is short, but trust us, any more and we’d verge on spoiling the incredible surprises this show has to offer. This experience flipped our entire view of the escape room industry upside-down, in the best way possible.
    The review is followed by a conversation with the creators, Cameron Cooper and Haley ER Cooper! We discuss their approach to designing an immersive theatre escape experience, what escape rooms can learn from theatre, and their plans for the future.

Amateur Escaper

This podcast rocks! Even as someone who doesn’t frequent escape games I have to say I am thoroughly amused by this podcast. Jocelyn and Ana are fantastic hosts and even with my novice outlook on escape games they are able to present the information in a way that I understand. Keep the episodes coming because I am hooked!

Awesome Podcast for Escape Enthusiasts!

As an avid enthusiast myself, I have been on the hunt for Escape Room podcasts, only to find that there aren't that many. Escape Expeditions fills that void with solid content and well justified reviews. If you live for escape rooms like I do, definitely check this podcast out.

Silentnateo095 ,

Great start for a duo with potential!

I work at and play Escape rooms regularly and these two definitely know what they are talking about and have a true love for escape games. Will be listening regurlary!
