Escape Rooms and the ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act)
Check out this guest blog post I wrote by visiting EscapeFront.
Here is a quick preview:
The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) is a US civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in all areas of public life. The law was written to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else.
The ADA applies to escape room businesses, because an escape room is a “place of public accommodation.” Although privately-owned, places like hotels, restaurants, bowling alleys, movie theaters, and other recreational facilities fall under ADA regulations because they are open to the general public.
In addition, large escape room companies should be aware that the ADA prohibits discrimination of disabled persons in the employment realm. The employment portion of the ADA applies to companies with 15 or more employees.
