Armin van Buuren unveils escape room in celebration of upcoming album

News has been out for a while now that the king of trance, Armin van Buuren, has a new album upcoming. Named Balance, there is only a few weeks left until it unleashes on 25 October and fans couldn’t be more excited about it. Already releasing some tracks, it features an abundance of tracks that are older fan favourites and completely brand new ones to fall in love with. This will be his seventh album to date and to celebrate, he’s doing something completely unique and launching his very own escape room.

Armada Music and Sherlocked Mystery Experiences – the number one rated escape room adventure in Amsterdam – have teamed up together to bring fans an exciting new adventure. The escape room will be themed off the ‘Balance’ album and will also be teasing new tracks throughout as fans go on a quest to unlock the hidden message that ‘Balance’ holds. Groups of four to six are required but if you want to take this on and are struggling to find other people to do it with, the Facebook event page invites fans to post on the page to find fellow fans to assemble a team. A firm understanding of Dutch or English is required. Available for two weeks only in Amsterdam, it officially opens on 16 October during the first day of Amsterdam Dance Event. The story of the escape room is posing as a music journalist, you need to gain access to a high-security vault located in the heart of Amsterdam and solve a range of puzzles to unlock the secret of what it takes to become a successful artist in today’s music industry.

“I’m a huge fan of escape rooms, so launching my own escape room in celebration of my new album ‘Balance’ is something I’m very excited about. I can’t wait to hear what you guys think of the album and the game, and I hope you can fully lose yourselves in the story of ‘Balance’. And that you manage to get out unscathed of course!” – Armin van Buuren on the ‘Balance’ escape room
