ABOUT US

OUR STORY BEGAN IN 2013 WHEN WE PLAYED OUR FIRST ESCAPE ROOM GAME IN BUDAPEST, HUNGARY, THE MECCA OF ESCAPE ROOMS IN EUROPE.

We fell in love with the concept immediately and wanted to bring the same immersive experience to our home town. So, we teamed up with friends from Budapest and launched our first escape room in Novi Sad, Serbia, followed by a second one in Vienna, Austria.

Since then, our network grew rapidly, with most of our initial partners discovering escape rooms by playing a game at one of our locations and deciding to join our team.

“ We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing. ”

George Bernard Shaw
