Oh my goodness! We just had the time of our lives checking out an escape room in Athens, Georgia. Urban Enigmas is the newest Athens escape room that can be arranged for various experiences and difficulty levels. My husband and I went with our older 4 children, ages almost 13, 9, 7, and 5.
About Urban Enigmas:
Urban Enigmas is a premier Athens escape room. They currently offer 2 escape game rooms, with more in the works.
- Innocence: You and your group of “accomplices” have been framed and arrested for crimes connected with a ten million dollar diamond heist. Soon the guards will be back to transport the group to the courthouse where you’ll be brought up on charges. You have 60 minutes to decide: Do you want to simply escape and live the rest of your life on the run as a fugitive? Or, do you want to prove your innocence by uncovering the person who committed the crime and free yourself from all charges?
- Dorm Room Daze: Kickoff to the big game against conference rivals is in an hour, and your tickets are nowhere to be found. You quickly realize that during last night’s get together at the dorm, some of the attendees decided it would be fun to prank you and hide the tickets. You have 60 minutes to follow the clues that were left behind by the pranksters, find the tickets, and make it to the game. Or face missing the biggest game of the year.
We have been to an escape room once before, but I have to say that Urban Enigmas blew us out of the water with today’s experience! We were so impressed with how well thought out all the puzzles are in the game!
When you arrive for your escape room experience, be sure to be 15 minutes early so you can get checked in and sign the waivers. After checking in, you will watch a short video explaining how the game works and what to do and not to do while you’re in the room.
When you visit Urban Enigmas, I definitely recommend taking along the kids! My children noticed things that my husband and I didn’t, helping us to solve the puzzles faster than we would have on our own. Wonderful team building experience!
Throughout the game, the employees will be watching and providing hints and clues on the room monitors. This was pretty neat! The monitor would make a noise whenever a hint or clue was coming our way. If you get really stumped, you have 3 free clues to help you solve the puzzles.
Our family explored the Dorm Room Daze room and escaped with only 24 seconds to spare! I wish I could elaborate more on the fun we had and what both of their rooms have in common, but I don’t want to ruin it for when you go! All I can say is that you will be very pleased during your experience!
Now that we know how to escape from Dorm Room Daze, it’s only a matter of time before we return and try out Innocence. Definitely a top place to visit in my book!
