What Is Escape Room Day?

Believe it or not, Escape Room Day is a worldwide event! Started as an initiative of Escape Rooms Nederland in October of 2016, Escape Room Day has evolved into a global celebration for escape room lovers across the world!

Why October 1st?

As they planned the first Escape Room Day, Escape Rooms Nederland wanted to find a date that would be a bit of a puzzle itself. First, they started with the word “escape room”. Based on their positions in the alphabet, the sum of all the letters is 110. (Ex: e = 5, s = 19, etc.)

The number 110 is the same as the date 1-10, or October 1st. In the Netherlands, they put the date before the month! (dd/mm/yyyy). So “escape room” added together numerically led to October 1 officially becoming Escape Room Day!

Come Escape With Us!

We’re so excited to celebrate with you! Thank you for being the best guests and showing us your support!
