An Escape what?
An escape room is an exciting new way to have a great time with your friends, family, and coworkers.  You will work together by exploring, solving riddles, putting together puzzles, and opening locks while in pursuit of winning the room.  You have one thrilling hour to find your way through the adventure and come out victorious.

I’m claustrophobic.
No worries. You are not actually locked in the room, you can exit any time to use the restroom, make a phone call, or just catch a breath.  However you don’t win the room until you find the objective.  Traditionally escape rooms require you to enter a combination into a pin pad to “escape the room” however, at the Escapery we run Adventure Rooms.  You just have to find the objective in the allotted time and you’re the winners!.

I don’t do well with the scares, is stuff going to jump out at me?
No one will jump out at you or try to scare you. Destiny is a puzzle and exploration adventure. Ripper is atmospherically creepy but not scary.

Okay that sounds pretty cool actually, how many people do you need?
We require at least two people to do the room because some of our puzzles require two sets of hands. Also because it would be stupid hard with just one person. Destiny can accommodate up to 8 people and Ripper can accommodate 10. If you would like to bring more than the cap for each room simply call us directly and we can create a custom booking for you.

How much is it?
It costs $28 per person plus Cobb County sales tax. We have occasional coupons and specials available to our email subscribers or those that like our Facebook page.

Will it just be me and my friends?
Unless you book all available spots within a time slot, it is possible that other folks could join your adventure.  Don’t worry though, we have a little ice breaker for when strangers collide and you’ll instantly be comrades in arms once you step into the room.

Can I bring my infant child?
We recommend that you leave your newborn in the care of a qualified attendant during your time slot.  The Escapery can accommodate folks from 12 years of age on up. Adventurers that are under 18 will need a guardian to sign for them and those under 16 will need a ticketed adult present in the room with them.

Are your rooms hard? Do I need to be super smart to have fun?
Nope! Our rooms are created for fun and adventure! Sure, they are challenging. Yes, you will have to think and work together. Not everyone wins, but everyone does have fun. We have had families with 12 year old kids, groups of senior citizens and experienced escape room aficionados complete our adventure rooms. We have gotten rave reviews from all of them! And if you REALLY want to know… give it go and find out for yourself!

What if I want to have my b-day party or a girl’s night out at the Escapery?
We have a tight array of options to make your event awesome, Call our main line at 770-726-2892, or send an email to escape@theescapery.com for more details.

My Company wants to come out to The Escapery for team building. Is that any different from just going through the room?
The Escapery takes team building to a whole new level. Your team can just go through one of our awesome rooms with no other activity if that is what you want. However, with our Team Adventures, not only do you go through our Adventure Rooms but we provide actual team building through facilitated discussions with team-building coaches, workshops, and even meals.  We also can provide space for your team to conduct a work session of your own. Please visit our Team Adventures page call our main line at 770-726-2892, or send an email to April@theescapery.com for more details.

Why should I come to The Escapery, there are a lot of other escape rooms out there?  
Our number one priority is that you and your group have a great experience.  We love to watch every group that comes through our door brighten up when they solve a puzzle or open a box.  Whenever a Game Master is watching a group the number one question we always ask is “are they having a good time?”  We are also a family owned business, our rooms are frankly amazing with hand-built puzzles you won’t find anywhere else, and our Game Masters are second to none.

I’ve done your room, what now, I need more Escapery in my brain!
Easy there feisty pants, we’ll have another room open soon. In the mean time we host a number of events at The Escapery so you can be close to action and to meet our awesome staff plus other smart, amazing people.  Go to our main page and sign-up for our mailing list.
