“Truly one of the best and most interactive escape rooms we have ever done! We came to Atlanta for DragonCon and found this escape room in Peachtree Center. We did two rooms with them (Golden Phoenix and Grand Zeppelin) over the weekend and both were great! Shout out to our will executioner and co-pilot for great acting. They really brought us into the story, and elevated the escape room experience to another level!
There was a longer-than-usual introduction before the game started because in addition to the traditional “escaping” part, we were each given side quests to complete in game and it made the whole experience very different from other escape rooms.
Out of the two rooms that we did, I enjoyed Grand Zeppelin more because the side quests kept all of us in suspense until the end of the game. Without given too much of detail away, we were basically working together and at the same time working against each other.
Highly recommend Time to Escape to anyone who is looking for a great time in Atlanta area!”
