  2. There is at least one escape room in 44 different countries. That means 22.5% of countries have escape rooms! Countries with escape rooms include Canada, the UK, the Netherlands, Dubai, India, and of course, the US.
  3. The record for the fastest escape from an escape room is just over 14 seconds. The record was set in March 2021 at the A Maze In Games escape room in Budapest, Hungary.
