You’re invited to an evening cocktail party at The Wren’s Nest, in West End, Atlanta. But be forewarned: Joel Chandler Harris, the previous owner of the house, is a notorious prankster! Famous for his Brer Rabbit novels, Harris is arguably just as tricky as his beloved character. His ghost treds through the house looking for his next prank victim, locking doors behind his guests and only letting them out if they can solve his clues. Are you up for the challenge?
