Smoke is spreading through the kitchen… While trying to extinguish the flames, you hear the shrill noise of the smoke detector. You want to open the door but you can only leave the room after you solve the riddles and crack the codes. You have just 15 minutes to get out of the escape room. Will you escape in time?
Together with VNOG and the Netherlands Fire Service (Brandweer Nederland), we developed a personalised escape room. Participants find themselves in a house and need to evacuate because of a fire. Before they can escape to safety, however, the participants need to carry out several assignments and solve riddles involving self-protection and fire safety. In the escape room, participants learn what they can do themselves to make their living environment safer.
At the Negenmaandenbeurs in Amsterdam, an exhibition for (future) parents, this escape room was packaged a little differently! Another epic collaboration: VNOG and Nederlandse Brandwondenstichting (a foundation for burn injuries and wounds). Young mothers were informed about the possible dangers that can occur in the home.
