The world’s first triple story escape room – Firefighter: The Ultimate Challenge at Escape Room International – Seremban, Malaysia

An official press conference was held on March 23rd by Escape Room International in Seremban, Malaysia to celebrate the release of their newest game – Firefighter: The Ultimate Challenge. Speakers at the event included representatives from Escape Room International (including two of its co-founders) and various tourism operators in Malaysia.

Firefighter: The Ultimate Challenge places you as a firefighter graduate who is preparing for the final test before becoming a real firefighter. Turns out the Head Marshal of the firefighter academy wants to really test the graduates this time and gives the worst possible scenario he can give – a chemical factory on fire. Using your fitness and mental skills – you only have 45 minutes to pass the final test. Will you pass the firefighter test?

On the banner at the press conference it states Firefighter is “Malaysia’s First Triple-Storey Real Escape Game” but I haven’t heard of another triple-storey escape room in existence before. Could this be the world’s first triple-storey escape room expansion? The only other recent escape room I know of which is building upwards was Escape Games Canada’s theme – The Haunting of Noriko – a two storey haunted house adventure. Will there one day be a fourth-storey escape room in existence? Or even an entire skyscraper that will be used to play an escape room across a massive scale?

Or an entirely different perspective could be escape rooms that expand underground – with participants starting at the bottom level of the escape room (which would be underground), then making their way up a level which would be the ground floor level. This idea was inspired by Sims 4 which recently released an update allowing players to build a room underground, for example a storage basement under their bakery business.

Do you know of any other escape rooms which are multi-storey (with at least two levels)? Leave a comment below about it.

    Escape Games has two ‘rooms’ with two floors, but I think is replacing one room with a 3-floor game. Omescape also has one. Nextrelic has one

      So both Omescape and Nextrelic each have their own two storey escape room?

    I really enjoyed this Escman League post about a game played across two multi-storey shopping centres. Not sure how many floors in total, but it’s definitely part of the future.

    However, a three-storey game with a firefighting theme? If there isn’t a great big fireman’s pole to slide down to get from floor to floor, I would cry.

      I just had a read over Escman League’s post – imagine having to avoid shoppers while trying to play a large scale escape room game! That’s very close to a completely immersive real life game.

      I was thinking there would be some ladders too for the participants to get into each storey (as lifts would be way out of the firefighter theme).

    Escape Room Manchester (part of Escape Room International) told me their next room will be two storeys, to take advantage of an open space which is going to waste at the moment. But construction wise it hasn’t even been designed yet so is probably some time away from reality.

      It’s good to find out that quite a few escape rooms are building upwards, thanks for leaving a comment Mark!
