"There's a lot of little niches that this fits in. Some people do it for entertainment, there's hobbyist groups that travel around and do everything that's available. It's really got a wide appeal for a lot of groups of people," Luke Croft, co-owner of Deciphered Roanoke, said.

It costs $20 for an individual. You can book an entire room for $100. Private party rates are also available.
