Swinging Doors, formerly called the Yellow Doors, are types of door in the Baldi's Basics series. Like regular 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).


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


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.


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.


Main Gameplay

While they are mostly scattered through the halls, these doors also lead to some special locations (Cafeteria, Library, Outdoor Areas, and Playground).


The only types available in each current challenges are normal and coin doors.

  • For some odd reason, the opening sound for the swinging doors is the one for the normal doors instead of the usual opening sound.


  • Rarely, Baldi may go through the locked swinging doors, if the Player is in outdoor areas.
