About the Golden Lock Award
Room Escape Artist will bestow the the Golden Lock Award upon our favorite escape rooms that we played in 2019.

Dropping the “In”
Eagle-eyed readers will note that we’ve renamed our annual award the Golden Lock, as opposed to the Golden Lock-In.
We decided to drop the wordplay after the fire in Poland. Locking players inside of an escape room hasn’t been acceptable for a long time and we don’t want to encourage it in any way.
Escape rooms as a medium, especially the ones winning this award, have moved beyond the basic concept of “players are locked in a room and need to escape.”
