Mapping Atlanta's Hot 'Escape Room' Trend

View as Map

It doesn't take an architect to know that rooms have doors that open. But a few entrepreneurial Atlantans are finding success in breaking the norm, monetizing rooms with doors that won't open without a code... a code that visitors have to work to get. Creative Loafing reports that seven ventures that lock you in a room with only clues to assist in an escape have opened during the last year in Atlanta. It's like when you were little and sadistically put your Sims in a room with no doors... only with live people. Sound fun? From zombie-filled rooms to classy jewelry heists, there's a range of options to suit everyone's interests. Check out the map after the jump.
