WHAT IS AN ESCAPE THE ROOM GAME?
Escape room games are basically mystery games!
In a typical escape room experience, you are locked in a room with anywhere from 2 to 15 players. You and your team must then find clues inside the room to help you solve the mystery so you can successfully escape! During your experience, you’ll be solving puzzles, cracking codes, and really testing your skills. In most cases, you have about 60 minutes to escape.
Escape rooms are fun for date nights, hanging out with friends, and testing your skills, and they make for a good team-building exercise too!
What surprised me most was that it wasn’t just one room — but a series of rooms! So just as you think you’ve won, you have more clues to solve.
It’s a great time and not as easy as you may think! For a perfectly creepy escape room in Atlanta, check out our list below.
