Location

Have you ever wondered what it is like to be inside a Prison? Well, not only are we hosting the only European Escape Room & Real life Gaming conference, but we are also hosting it inside an abandoned prison! The Prison Dome Breda is one of the most iconic prisons in the Netherlands. Its size is so overwhelming, upon entrance you’ll feel small, like a number. A small detail inside a colossal building. We couldn’t think of any better location for an escape room & real life gaming conference. See you in prison?

ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS

In 2015 Logic Locks & Real Life Gaming came together for a casual encounter. By then both teams had designed escape rooms as well as real life games and they realized that they shared the belief that those experience will heavily impact be the future of gaming. They enjoyed the exchange of ideas so much that it became clear that time was ripe to meet all the other designers out there and to come together to inspire each other and share ideas how to create the best possible experiences.
