What is a sightless escape room?
A sightless escape room is designed to be played by anyone regardless of how much or how little sight the person has. This includes players who are blind, who have low vision and those who have sight.
The Owl Job was, as far as I am aware, Australia’s first ever sightless escape room. It ran just for a just a few days in August 2019 and again in January 2020. Players had to use their mind, their sense of hearing and their sense of touch to navigate the room and solve puzzles entirely without sight. Any players who had sight wore comfortable goggles cover their eyes. The idea was to make accessibility a creative process that spawned a new type of escape room that would benefit everyone.
