Back a couple years ago, we had the wonderful opportunity to check out Urban Enigma’s Dorm Room Daze room and had a blast! We have been hooked on escape and challenge rooms ever since. Yesterday we had the pleasure of checking out Urban Enigma’s newest room, Retro. Unlike normal escape rooms, you’re not trying to escape. It is a puzzle room where you can complete tasks in order to gain more pieces of the puzzle and more game pieces to play other games.
We had to complete games that were very similar to some of my favorites as a kid. I think you’ll recognize a few from these pictures:
Throughout the game, you’re finding tiles for their “Scramble” wall. Build words on the wall to earn points and try and beat other teams. We ended up finding 29 tiles and ended up with 135 points! Our team was the Sea Monsters and we ended up in 5th place! Not bad! We took along our 4 older kids and they had a blast. As long as they know how to play board games and you are familiar with many of them, you’ll do great! I don’t want to ruin all the surprises, but make sure you are ready for a challenge and ready to have fun!
This is quickly becoming one of our favorite places in Athens to visit and I love that it’s kid-friendly!
