Escape Industry News
Greetings escapists! 👋

September is upon us and another Escape Industry Newsletter is here...

And what a month it's been so far. Thanks to all your fantastic suggestions, we spotted over 50 new escape room openings in August.

As the days are growing shorter here, we are once again excited for what the remainder of 2022 will bring. Soon the escape industry will be full of festive fun such as horror pop-ups for Halloween and snow-filled wonder rooms for Christmas.

For those who prefer their fun more digital, September also brings the return of a much-loved puzzle event: Puzzletember. 30 days of puzzles from many escape room companies, and 30 fun prizes to be won.

But that's not all, owners and enthusiasts alike will be excited to learn TERPECA is back for 2022 with some new rules and changes in categories.

It's an exciting one, and we'll see you on the other side.

Until next month! 👋
