Escape Room Zoetermeer - The Orphanage
Escape Room Zoetermeer - The Orphanage


You know that the girls’ orphanage that used to be in this location has been empty for years. You know no one’s there and yet you feel chills crawling along your back when you push open the old oaken door. The cobwebs along the yellowed walls are proof that no one has been inside here for ages and yet, occasionally, you feel like you hear something. A girl’s voice in the distance. The floor creaks under your feet with every step as if trying to say: ‘Leave here’. Suddenly, the radio turns on…

The Orphanage is a blood-curdling adventure that takes place in the old girls’ orphanage that has always been located in this building. But did the orphaned girls’ souls ever really leave? Or have they stuck around, waiting for someone that wants to come play with them?

While you slowly find your way in the old, dark orphanage and uncover more and more chambers inside, you discover the kind of world the orphan girls were spending their days in. Everything has been left in perfect condition, the thick layer of dust being the only thing that betrays the fact that no one has been here for ages. Why was this orphanage even abandoned? What happened to the girls? All their stuff is still there, like they didn’t even have time to pack. Aided by the puzzles hidden everywhere you’ll discover what went down in here years ago, as you head towards a grisly climax.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is The Orphanage scary?
Absolutely, but you secretly kind of hoped for that, right? Of course it does depend on your personality how scary The Orphanage will end up being for you in practice. All DarkPark escape rooms are much more than just a room with puzzles. An ambiance is created that can be experienced as very intense for some people. Even though there will never be any real danger, you could still get startled or feel tense while playing The Orphanage due to the atmosphere that’s being created. In case of a panic attack or unbearable fear you can press the emergency stop button, which will terminate the experience early.
Is The Orphanage suitable for disabled people?
There are a couple of elevations in The Orphanage, making it impossible to be played by those in a wheelchair, unfortunately. If you struggle to walk or do so with crutches, but can still ascend or descend a staircase, you could play The Orphanage no problem. Those with limited sight or that are hard of hearing can play The Orphanage just fine, as long as there’s at least 1 player present that does possess proper vision and hearing. That said, it is good to be aware of the fact that there will be very loud noises and scary imagery. This may be very overwhelming for those with visual, auditory, or mental disabilities.
Can I go to the toilet during the escape room?
You won’t be able to go the toilet while playing The Orphanage. As such, we recommended you use the bathroom right before entering the escape room.
What about safety?
While playing The Orphanage the illusion of being locked up will be created. In actuality, you can exit the escape room at any time by using the emergency stop present in every room in case of emergencies. Furthermore, there’s constant surveillance from outside thanks to the cameras and microphones that are installed in the escape room. All of our escape rooms completely abide by the legal requirements in terms of safety.
What should I wear?
What you wear while playing The Orphanage doesn’t matter all too much. You won’t (or at least shouldn’t) get dirty, or have to exert a ton of effort. It might be necessary for you to crawl or climb a bit, however, so we don’t recommend a three-piece suit or huge stiletto heels. Just wear something you feel comfortable in that lets you move around well.
Can I take my phone with me in the escape room?
No; before you enter the escape room, we will ask you to store all your belongings – your phone, but also your wallet, keys and miscellaneous possessions – in a locker. This is necessary so as to not ruin your own and your fellow players’ gameplay experiences. Everything you need to escape The Orphanage will be found in the escape room. Obviously, you’ll get your possessions back after surviving The Orphanage.
