ESCAPE ROOM OPERATOR
Boom Chicago is the Amsterdam based improvisational comedy theater that has enjoyed great success at connecting with international audiences for 25 years. At Boom Chicago we strive for a great experience for all our guests.
Due to the nature of our business, we require flexible and charming staff with a can do mentality. ‘This is not my responsibility’ is not part of your vocabulary. We are always improving and we ask the same of our staff. We stop at nothing to give our guests an event to remember.
“Escape Through the Movies” is our fifth escape room, and the second we have run ourselves. Our first, Escape Through Time, was an international destination and got an average of 5 stars out of 5 on TripAdvisor. But our new escape room experience is going to blow that away. This is the most innovative escape room in Amsterdam and one of the best in the world. And we are looking for English speaking actors to be a part of this!
