Escape Industry News
Greetings, escapists 👋

February may be the shortest month of the year, but there's been no shortage of movers and shakers in the escape room industry this month.

From in-person convention announcements, to a brand new season of one of our favorite podcasts, and plenty of new escape room openings across the world... There's lots to be excited about as we head into March.

Personally my favorite thing that happened this past month occurred when the stars aligned to create a very unique February 22nd. But hey- you'll have to scroll down to our monthly puzzle to find out just what I'm talking about.

Until next time, may you solve all your puzzles and find all the keys!
