What is an escape game?

  

          If you’re reading this and know what an escape game is, you might not learn anything. If you’re reading this and have absolutely no idea what we are, please keep going. Escape games are not a new phenomenon, but they are catching on around the globe. They are based on widely played video games based on the same premise. You are locked in a room and must solve puzzles, riddles, or any manor of inventive and ludicrous tasks in order to escape in 60 minutes. Every game has a different theme and storyline. Some games include multiple rooms, or even hidden rooms. Your team may consist of family and friends, or almost entirely strangers. It’s up to you to work together and complete your escape. They reportedly started in Hong Kong in 2006, and have exploded in popularity since. We’re seeing that growth right now in the US. In 2010 there were zero games in America- now we have an estimated 367. Worldwide, there are over 2,800, but only one of them can be the top rated in Atlanta. That’s where we come in. After less than a year in operation Mission Escape is one of the top overall attractions in the city. Our unique design and style are matched only by the intensity and challenging nature of the rooms. Are you brave enough to try?
