— Baldi, Classic/Birthday Bash

Swinging doors, formerly called the yellow doors, are types of door in the Baldi's Basics series. Like standard doors, opening these doors will attract Baldi by the sound.

Except for the normal swinging door, this is the only door that has special requirements to get it to open. The swinging doors can be locked by a Swinging Door Lock, preventing anybody from opening it, including Baldi and the Player, for 30 seconds (15 seconds on Classic/Birthday Bash).

Types

There are three types for swinging doors, normal swinging door, coin door, and wrong/right-way door.

Normal

The normal swinging door.

A locked swinging door.

The most common variant littered throughout the hallways and have windows which the Player can use to view incoming characters. Every character (excluding It's a Bully and Chalkles) can open this door. This door does not need left-clicking to open but instead requires physical contact. Opening swinging doors will slightly slow the Player down.

Coin

The coin door.

The coin door first appears as an ordinary swinging door that has a realistic photo texture of a coin slot in deep reddish-purple color, and printed with the 25 cents symbol and "PUSH TO REJECT" text below.

The coin door appears in some hallways and requires the Player to insert a Quarter into the slot of the coin door. If the Player does not insert a quarter into the coin slot, nobody can pass through the door, essentially acting as a permanent Swinging Door Lock.

After inserting a Quarter into the coin slot, the coin door will change into an ordinary swinging door permanently, becoming accessible.

Wrong/Right-Way

The right-way door.

The Player and other characters can open the one-way swinging doors* with green arrow icons and go through it. On the other side, there is a door with red line icons, which cannot be opened once it has been closed. Even if the wrong-way door is opened, NPCs will not go through the door, but instead they will change the direction.

Locations

Main Gameplay

While they are mostly scattered through the halls, these doors also lead to some special locations (Cafeteria, library, outdoor area, and playground).

Challenges

The only types available in each current challenges are normal and coin doors, while the Stealthy Challenge has only normal swinging doors.

Other Appearances

  • In Baldi's Basics Classic and Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash, only the normal-type swinging doors are featured. When the Player starts the game, they will be unable to access the first three swinging doors, with one in front of them and one to the right and left, until they have collected two notebooks. These doors also lead through exits found after the Player collects 7 notebooks in Story Mode. There are 8 swinging doors in total.
  • In Baldi's Basics - Field Trip demo: Camping, there are 2 normal swinging doors: One that leads to the outdoor area and one behind the Super Schoolhouse where PlaceFace hides behind.
  • In Baldi's Basics Full Game Early Demo, there are 5 normal swinging doors in total. Furthermore, the coin doors are introduced, but there is only one.

Trivia

General
  • The coin door's slot is modeled after the quarter slots in arcade machines.
  • Swinging doors do not make a sound when closing, unlike normal doors.
Baldi's Basics Plus
  • Using BSODA on an NPC in the path of a one-way swinging door will open the door, regardless of which side the NPC is blasted.
Classic/Birthday Bash
  • Until the second notebook is collected, the swinging door at the dark hallway with the mailbox comic has a Swinging Door Lock on one side of it.
Baldi's Basics Classic
  • Before V1.3.2, there were only 6 swinging doors.
Baldi's Basics Full Game Early Demo
  • The hovering swinging door in the early demo, seen with hacking.

    When teleporting outside of the school with hacks, a swinging door can be seen visibly above the school building.
Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning: Development Build
  • For some odd reason, the opening sound for the swinging doors is the one for the standard doors instead of the usual opening sound.


Glitches

  • Rarely, Baldi may try to pass through the locked swinging doors connected to outdoor areas and he can get stuck, if the Player is in here. He will go to other location if they use BSODA to him or Dirty Chalk Eraser to hide from him.
