I love doing an amazing activity that are more engaging and interactive. Although something like a movie and dinner every once in a while is relaxing and nice, it can sometimes be boring and overrated. First of all, it’s a pricey outing. Honestly, if I am going to a movie, I’m more than likely going on a Tuesday to an AMC and getting in for $5. For the sake of this conversation, let’s be honest, snacks may or may not be in my bag. Recently, we experienced an amazing activities that everyone will enjoy. The Escape Game was fun, interactive, had us working together and was great for the whole crew, my son included!
I received complementary tickets to facilitate a review, as always, my opinions are my own
The Escape Game Atlanta
The Escape Game is a 60-minute game that’ll have you working together to race the clock and escape the room. This is probably the most enticing reason I love the game. It forces you to put your phones away, work together and enjoy your experience without outside distractions. With 5 different unique experiences, The Escape Game has an experience for any and everyone.
The 5 different and unique experiences they offer are;
- The Heist
- Prison Break
- Special Ops: Mysterious Market
- Gold Rush
We chose The Heist. It places you in an art gallery and your mission is to retrieve that stolen art work that the art gallery curator has hidden. Simple right?! Wrong! The clues more obvious after the fact then when you’re in the moment. Of course I’m forbidden to give you the clues, not that you would want me to ruin your experience anyways. But what I can say is once you think you have it, there is more. And space out, don’t everyone work on one task at once. There are moments when you’ll need to work together, but to really get the multiple clues, you’ll all need to looking around the room individually.
Did We Complete Our Mission?
We escaped! We had so much fun. Even my son who is about to turn 10 had fun (speaking of kids, if you want to take the family, the most kid favorite experience seems to be Playground from what the staff mentioned to us). We escaped with less than 2-minutes left. My anxiety was definitely setting in. I felt like it was real and the curator was about the walk in at any moment. Technically I felt like I was in a National Treasure movie. It was awesome.
I totally want to return to experience the other rooms. And it’s actually not really expensive either. Tickets are under $36/person. I also noticed them on Groupon, so you can probably save even more if you notice they have a deal going on.
Also, I’d suggest arriving 10-15 minutes early. This way you can sign your waivers before your game begins. If you’re still on the fence about going, I assure you, you’ll have an amazing time!
Where is The Escape Game Located?
The Escape Game is located at The Battery. A new retail area located in front of Suntrust Park (Atlanta Braves hometown field). Besides spending some time tackling the mission to escape the room, you can also browse retail shops, have fun at one of the area attractions or eat at one of the many delicious restaurants that all call The Battery home! If you’re heading to a Braves game, it is also a great way to kill some time before game starts.
Is Parking Free for The Escape Game?
Parking is free but the length of the free parking depends on if a game is going on at Suntrust Park. Parking is free for up to 4-hours if there isn’t a game going on. If there is one it will only be free for up to 2-hours and after that the prices go up a lot. We went on a non-game day and had plenty of time to experience The Escape Game and grab a bite to eat afterward.
On game days, parking was $30+ after 2-hours. I would recommend planning accordingly so you don’t come a lot out-of-pocket on parking alone. Non-game days parking is $10+ after 4-hours.
