Who says Halloween is the only time to test your tolerance for scares? If you're looking for thrills year-round, a Georgia escape room will immerse you in a two-part thrilling adventure that features puzzles, a shipping container-turned fun house, a creepy cabin, and a killer clown.
Escape Woods is no ordinary escape room experience. Located on Sleepy Hollow Farm just outside of Atlanta, it offers 60 acres of land for thrill-seekers and puzzle junkies alike, with six different escape rooms to choose from. But if you’re looking for a genuine spook, "The Cabin: Fun House Massacre" is the one for you.
The experience begins with a guide escorting you to the first location in the twisted storyline, giving you background information about the aspiring serial killer that is lurking somewhere in the ancient woods. Once you’re trapped in the demented fun house, the clock starts ticking, and you (and up to seven other people) must escape the clown “before he makes you his first victims.”
With the murderous ambiance, guests are recommended to be 18 or older. Escape Woods also offered Oxygen.com some prudent advice: go at night. The year-round escape game adventure can kick off as early as 1 p.m. to as late as 8:30 p.m. on Thursdays and Sundays, and 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The added element of the dark adds to the fear factor, and there just might be a clown killer waiting for you in the shadows.
"The Cabin" is one of the easier escape adventures featured on Sleepy Hollow Farm, considering its other non-scary adventures average at 30 percent success rate, but don’t be fooled — the success rate is still 60 percent at most.
Plus, if you’ve watched "Stranger Things," these chilling woods may feel familiar to you: Hopper’s cabin was shot here and is now a part of Escape Woods’ adventure repertoire.
