Editor-in-chief

Journalist and indologist by profession. Writer, marketer, tarantulas keeper and urbex explorer by heart. In the meantime I’m playing escape rooms and board games, and wondering how I can find time to sleep (still dunno). I was born to write - my favourite forms of expression are extensive articles preceded by a long research, and horror stories (for some it’s the same).

After work she likes learning foreign languages, writing texts and planning her next trip to escape room, probably with rap music in the background. Totally extrovert.

We are part of Lockme

The main project we lead is Lockme - a platform for rating and booking escape rooms. It started in Poland and now we have partners in a few other European countries - Czech Republic, Lithuania and Ireland. Our escape room database covers 11 countries from all over the world and contains over 9 000 escape rooms.

Lockme was created by two escape room enthusiasts and friends - Jakub Caban and Bartosz Idzikowski. “At the beginning, we just wanted to create a place where everyone could see the escape room offered in Poland. However, the number of escape rooms was growing at an amazing pace, and this project involved us and grew more and more.” Jakub Caban, partner

Lockme is a place to book and rate escape rooms, also to create a community. However, on Lockme there is no space for escape room industry databases and content like market analysis, industry articles about technology, escape room marketing, hints and guides for creators and escape room owners and so on. Escape room industry needs a place with aforementioned content. And Escape Buzz is an answer for this need.

Search, book and rate escape rooms on Lock.me!
