Our Story

In September 2014 we opened the first real live escape room in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. Two months later we opened our second room. Now we have three escape rooms nearly fully booked every day. In less than 5 months, we’ve become ranked as Ljubljana’s No. 1 Tourist Activity on TripAdvisor!

And ... we’ve just opened the world’s very first Escape Igloo in on the slopes of Slovenia’s ski resort town Kranjska Gora. The fun doesn’t stop!

We are Escape Room Enigmarium® and we have set out to create the best escape rooms that you’ve ever played.

Our next stop?

Bled.

Perhaps you’ve heard of Lake Bled and its fairytale island in the middle of the lake. Or about its medieval castle that sits dauntingly on the big cliff. Or about its delicious Kremšnita dessert. Or about all the outdoor and nature activities one can enjoy there.

But what you probably haven’t heard about is a very special location in the heart of Bled that was once inhabited by a very special witch. That witch had a good heart but she wasn’t any good at casting spells. In fact, one day she decided to make things easier for the dairy farmers in the valley.

While trying to cast a spell to make cows fly, she accidently transformed herself into something else and got locked in her own attic. That’s right, she bewitched herself! No one knew what happened to her and no one could find her to help her get out. Since then, the place where she cast her spells has sat hidden away. It’s been forgotten ... until now ...

Our project

Escape Room Enigmarium® is gearing up to bring you a new escape room experience in the center of one of Slovenia’s most popular tourist destinations.

To accomplish our goal, we need your help.

The witch’s den has indeed fallen into a state of ruins and to get it up and running will require some work.

We’ve set a budget of 12,000 dollars, which will help us to cover the costs of clean-up and renovations to bring the location up to code.

What's in it for you?

In addition to making a great new escape room, we’ve got a list of special perks that we’re sure will make your contribution worthwhile. And for as little as 20 dollars you can be among the first to try out the new room.

So check out our rewards, make a donation that suits your pocket book and help us rescue the witch in Bled! An exciting adventure awaits you!

With your help, we can make Escape Room Enigmarium® the best escape rooms in Slovenia and beyond!

Thank you for your support!

Team Members

Nataša Potočnik

Co-founding Partner, Creative Director

The founder of the communication agency Connecta in Ljubljana, Nataša and her partner Peter were immediately enchanted by escape rooms when they visited one on holidays. From that moment, it’s been a whirlwind journey to creating Escape Room Enigmarium®. Nataša is absolutely happiest when she’s designing escape rooms, so no doubt there will be many new escape rooms in her future. That’s fantastic news for those of us who love to play them too!


Peter Arčon

Co-founding Partner, Managing Director

Chances are, when you meet Peter, he’ll be wearing orange. That’s just the type of guy he is. Besides that, he keeps a steady hand on the numbers at Escape Room Enigmarium® and works as the director of the communication and advertising agency Connecta and a communications strategist and advisor. Like Nataša, he’s full of great ideas and is an expert at implementing them.


Vasja Potočnik

Co-founding Partner, Gamemaster

Among his many talents, Vasja has a gift for making people feel welcome and special. That makes him very valued as a Gamemaster because our guests never lose hope in their quest when he’s around. He’s a great storyteller and if you’re not careful, he’ll sell you a car before you know it.


Katja Fuchsjager

Co-founding member, Location manager & Gamemaster Ljubljana (Trdinova)

Katja is a young woman of many talents, among them her organisational and communication skills. She's the Location Manager at the Trdinova location in Ljubljana and one of Engimarium®’s favourite Gamemasters.


Gregor Sodec

Digital guru

Gregor keeps things running smoothly in the digital world of Enigmarium®. He’s got a lot of experience in computer gaming as well, both as a player and a level designer.


Jana Wilcoxen

Special projects manager

Jana has been working in the field of culture to raise money for international projects for many years, so it didn’t take much for the Enigmarium® team to convince her to put her talents to use for creating our first TravelStarter campaign. Born and raised in Denver, she’s a native English speaker, which comes in handy for writing texts in English and translating into English the ones that aren’t already.


Andrej Pirnat

Lead Gamemaster, Ljubljana (Trdinova)

After studying Criminology, Andrej decided to apply to be a Gamemaster at Escape Room Enigmarium®. He turned his job application into a very unique puzzle for his would-be employers. His would-be employers immediately became his employers and since then he has been charming and guiding the players at Escape Room Enigmarium®’s Trdinova location in Ljubljana.


Jaka Bassanese

Location Manager, Bled

Besides being a graduate student of tourism management at the Faculty of Economics, University of Ljubljana, Jaka is also a member of the Bled city council, where for several years he has already been organising projects and programmes in Bled and the wider Gorenjska region. Organising local events is a result of his love for the region in which he lives. Because Bled is one of the most beautiful spots on Earth, it deserves a top-notch tourist offering. For this reason, he decided to open an escape room in Bled in the company of the biggest and best escape room company in Slovenia: Enigmarium.
