Level 240 is the 241st Level of the Backrooms.


Level 240, otherwise known as Lotka Lake, is a lake surrounded by a foggy forest. There is no definite size to this level, as the farther you go in to the forest, the denser the fog becomes. In the center of the lake, there is a small, elevated, stone platform. Etched into it are different symbols, all thought to mean "children" or "night". The lake itself is covered with lily pads, and only one foot deep. The bottom is a mix of clay and sand, and sometimes a visitor may see the occasional glass frog.
In some parts, the lake is too deep to see to the bottom, but it is assumed to be made up of the same material as the rest of the lake. Underneath the bottom, however, Entity 114, or as it likes to call itself, Lotka, rests. Entity 114 seems to have control over the entire level, creating food, trees, and shaping the land. Entity 114 is also responsible for the anti-aging effects of Level 240, which is considered to be one of Entity 114's most impressive feats alongside a large sinkhole deep in the forest. Because of this, most people agree that Entity 114 created Level 240, or at least had a hand in it.

Bases, Outposts and Communities:

The Grandchildren of Lotka

  • They are a group of children living on Level 240.They have built tree houses around the lake, and seem to treat Entity 114 as a dear friend. Despite their name, they have no ties to Entity 114, familial or spiritual.
  • Their "leader" is Camille Northcot, a governess from England in 1797 who is rumored to be the first to enter Level 240. She teaches the children and is the second oldest person in Level 240, as she is 17, the age cap for entry. The oldest is a boy by the name of Elijah "Bucket" Miller, who is also 17 but has a birthday a couple months before Northcot's. He and his younger brother Eli "Pail" Miller, are from 2023 and are assistants to Northcot.

Entrances And Exits:


Level 240 can be entered through a white door covered with childish drawings. The doorknob vanishes if anyone of 18 years or older goes to touch it, suggesting that the Level only reveals itself to children. The door can be found on most levels as long there is an empty wall, but there have been more reports of this door on Levels or in places more child-like in nature, like a toy store on Level 33. An abundant amount of doors have also been found on Level 52, Level 117, and Level 283.


Children are allowed to come and go as they please in Level 240, as long as they can find the door. To leave, all they must do is ask Entity 114 and it will create a door for them to leave. The door will lead out to the Level the child originally found the door on.
