The Red Door Escape Room Story

Red Door Escape Room didn't start as a business, it started as a game

...a very strange game in a church. 

After playing his first escape game in October 2014, Dan Huynh discovered a passion for this new concept that is currently sweeping the world. He wanted to bring this amazing experience to the college students at his church and so decided to design his own escape game. It was meant to be an enjoyable game as well as a team building exercise for all players. He used his church's century old building as the eerie setting for the game which also helped develop the story of the game as well. Thus, the escape episode ‘CONFINEMENT' was created.

The participants loved the game and immediately requested another one be created. Because of the feedback, Dan began to consider how to bring this experience to even more people. After some research and brainstorming, Dan and his wife partnered with a long-time friend and together created Red Door Escape Room in Southlake, Texas. Their passion in providing communities with exciting memories and a new experience has grown so much over the year. Red Door Escape Room is constantly creating newer and better games - with locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and Greater Sacramento areas!
