    About us - learn more

    Lockme is the largest website for browsing, booking and rating escape rooms from all over Poland, but not only. It has begun its expansion to the west, where a similar solution has been missing so far, and is already available in Germany, Austria, Switzerland or USA - and this is only beginning of our growth. The website works as a marketplace, which in Poland concentrates over 95% of the market and is constantly growing. It was created in December 2014 on the basis of a special algorithm by two enthusiasts of escape rooms - Jakub Caban and Bartosz Idzikowski - then involved in creating websites.


    We conduct our media relations in the widest possible context - they relate to both our business, markets in individual countries, a new generation of rooms and technologies used in them, applications for escape rooms (not only entertainment but also marketing, HR, tourism promotion, an innovative tool education or close cooperation with the film industry). We invite journalists from all over the world to contact us - we will gladly share our knowledge with you, help in collecting data or establishing contacts with representatives of specific escape room markets.

    Our view on market

    At the beginning, we only wanted to create a place where everyone can see the offer of escape rooms in Poland. However, the number of escape rooms was increasing at an amazing pace, and this project was getting us more and more involved. So we came to the conclusion that it's time to go with the blow and start earning on it. We wanted to be faithful to our mission, which guided us from the beginning: Lockme is to be a place for the entire industry, with the widest range and the most objective possible.


    Therefore, owners of escape rooms, to strengthen their promotion, can use our paid tools, but this is not necessary for the presence on our site. This may be considered unusual and risky action, but thanks to that almost everyone is here. We were called a startup, but we don't like this term. From the very beginning, we financed ourselves, we did not look for investors, we wanted to have full influence on the shape and direction of development. The industry is still very diverse, the rooms can stand out from each other qualitatively, and in this way, thanks to our range and recognition, we try to help define standards, patterns and proper development directions.

    The global escape room industry is still very young, only 10-12 years old. However, around 60,000 rooms are estimated to operate around the world. From Tokyo, through Shanghai, Budapest, Warsaw, London, to Buenos Aires and Los Angeles. Escape rooms have grown up on enthusiasts, but the market is consistently growing and becoming professionalized. There are companies on the markets that have 2-3 rooms, but also entire room centers or franchise networks. This entertainment has already penetrated the mainstream so much that it has also been noticed by large business.


    Escape rooms as a marketing tool are used by companies such as Samsung, Adidas or Microsoft, special themed rooms are often created on the occasion of film premieres (e.g. Jumnaji or X-Men: Dark Phoenix), they are also increasingly used by teachers to organise more engaging and interactive lessons. Many companies also practice rectuitment and team building actions in escape rooms. This is an interdisciplinary field of entertainment, which every now and then surprises us with something new.
