We’re now on the hunt for our next great escape room.

We want our next escape room experience to be truly unique, and that's where you come in.

From now until April 30th, we will be accepting new room design submissions.

On May 17th, we will select our favorite completed room design. The winner will receive a $500 cash prize and their design will be our next featured room!

What does a completed room design include?

Each room design must be based around a central theme with a brief backstory to the adventure. You can check out the backstories of all of our current rooms here for some inspiration!

Each room design must include a minimum of 10 puzzles, with each puzzle leading to the next, and so on.

The Final puzzle of the room must resolve the storyline you've created and reveal the final key to open the door and escape.

The room design should be able to be completed in 60 minutes, though it should not be so easy that everyone escapes with time to spare. 

Each submission must include a detailed walkthrough of how the room should be completed. This means explanations of how each puzzle works and leads to the next, as well as what props or other equipment would be required to create these puzzles.

Please note, The Great Escape Zone will own the rights to the winning room design.

How do I enter?

Submit your design to us at info@thegreatescapezone.com with the title "Room Idea".
