Trivia

The man responsible for creating a real life escape room in Poland and who was charged with deliberately creating a danger of a fire that led to 5 teens being killed inside was named Milosz. In this movie, the name of the escape room operator went by Minos. However, it's more than likely that Minos here refers to the Greek mythological figure, first king of Crete, son of Zeus and Europa who every nine years sent seven people into Minotaur's labyrinth.

Goofs

In the official trailer the winning prize for successful escape is dubbed as $1,000,000 but in the movie it is only $10,000, as can be seen printed on the entry voucher and is stated by the characters when they gather for the first time. Still, the entry voucher with the printed sum of $10,000 is also briefly visible in the trailer. See more »
