Escape Room in haunted historic house museum: The Wren’s Nest
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 treads 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? Escape the Nest begins Friday, August 9th and continues every Friday and Saturday in August. New games start on the hour every hour from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. at The Wren’s Nest, located at 1050 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd SW, Atlanta, GA 30310.
Escape the Nest is based on the popular escape room game model. In this interactive game, groups of guests must work together to solve puzzles and riddles, finding codes that open a series of locks until they ultimately find the key to the exit. At The Wren’s Nest, our guests play within Georgia’s oldest historic house museum. The Queen Anne Victorian style house creates an ambience that will make guests feel as they’re playing a real-life game of Clue.
Escape the Nest opens on Friday, August 9th and will run every successive Friday and Saturday in August (9,10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30, 31). The game starts on the hour every hour from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. with a runtime of 45 minutes. The maximum capacity for each game is 10 guests and a minimum of 4 guests is required for a game to run. Tickets range in price from $26-$30 and are on sale now on Eventbrite @ Escape the Nest: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/
