What is Escape Shaker ?

How can we book an Escape Room with Escape Shaker ?
Escape Shaker currently enables players to check availabilities. When a player clicks on 'Book' button, the player is automatically redirected on the booking page of the Escape Room chosen. The player then has to book the Escape Room through the Escape Game Website. Any questions on the booking should be asked to the Escape Game.
Why can differences be observed between availabilities in Escape Shaker and the Escape Game Website ?
When last minute booking an Escape Room (until 24h before), rooms can be displayed as available in Escape Shaker and not available in the Escape Game Website. Indeed, for organizational purpose, some Escape Games do not allow bookings 24 hours before through website. In some cases, bookings can be made but only by phone. You just have to check the Escape Game policy on that matter or contact them to see if it's possible to book.

How are we calculating the ratings ?
Escape Rooms are rated from different ways on Escape Shaker.
The main rating is the average between bloggers ratings and players ratings. This rating is also used to make the Escape Game Top by city (in the webpages Tops and city Guides).
In each room details, there is a distinction between bloggers rating and players rating. Why ? The rating can be different because bloggers and players have different expectations on gameplay, gamemastering, riddle difficulty and generally on the room. Bloggers have higher expectations because there are more expert, critical and comparative with rooms.
Easier rooms can be severely rated by bloggers but well appreciated by players.
A scoring on the criteria diggings / decor / logic has been made by bloggers to guide players on the room characteristics.
