Escape-room games are inherently adrenaline inducing. With 60 minutes on the clock and a mystery before them, teams use their critical thinking skills to uncover hidden items, crack codes, and solve puzzles to escape before time is up. The real allure of Breakout Atlanta isn’t the challenging detective work, though. Rather, it’s the thrilling narratives behind each escape room. Read on to learn about the mysteries facing players.
The Kidnapping: In Breakout Atlanta’s most intense scenario, players have been abducted and handcuffed inside an unfamiliar room. Using hidden messages from the previous victim, the team collaborates to escape before the kidnapper returns.
The Museum Heist: The night before its opening, an illustrious art showing’s masterpiece disappears and several other pieces have been replaced with fakes. Players must work together to find the artwork and culprit before the gallery opens.
Casino Royale: While investigating the disappearance of an MI6 agent, the team is trapped in a room of the Casino Royale. In just an hour, its members must follow clues to locate the missing agent and determine the kidnapper.
Island Escape: A new room currently in the works, Island Escape sees players abandoned on a tropical island whose previously dormant volcano is now rumbling. The group must flee the island within the hour—before the volcano’s lava reaches them.
Escape Room Tips from the People Who Design Them
We asked Bryce Anderson of Breakout Games what advice he'd give to beginners. Then we asked him what he'd say if he had money riding on it.
While the first Europeans were making their way towards North America, the Creek and Cherokee tribes were fighting for control of the lands that now make up Autrey Mill Nature Preserve. This bit of history is just a part of the 400 years of heritage now on display in the park. Granted protected status in 1988, the park preserves the story of these rugged wilds and the hearty residents that once called them home. In addition to honoring Native American heritage through exhibits and educational programs, the preserve also maintains a Heritage Village memorializing the farmers who tilled the land at the turn of the 20th century. Two miles of trails connect these sites, letting guests commune with more than 110 species of wildlife spread across shady woods and creekside shoals.
A motley collection of secure and sanitized play structures dominates each Catch Air location's indoor play arena to sate the lively imaginations of children as well as the safety concerns of their parents. Each of the four locations opens its doors seven days a week to unique lineups of attractions, including three-tiered castles covered in colorful nets and padding, with space shuttles attached to appease every child's love of anachronism. Tykes 12 and younger can wade through ball pits or take to an interactive, light-up dance floor to practice moves before they reach the age when practicing becomes embarrassing. The staff maintain a watchful eye at all times and clean every play structure daily before opening. Staffers also host parties to celebrate birthdays or the end of second-grade finals week.
Helmed by the not-for-profit Urban Mediamakers Association, the four day Urban Mediamakers Film Festival showcases independent features, shorts, documentaries, cartoons, and music videos from a wide swath of burgeoning artists. In addition to having their creations screened and judged, novice filmmakers can learn the ins and outs of modern media by participating in in-depth discussions and presentations led by guest speakers who have found success in the industry. Past presentations and workshops have covered topics such as turning independent books into films, building a brand through social media, and developing a compelling story that can invoke thought and positive change. Beyond the premiers and presentations, the film festival also hosts an awards party and Videopalooza, a showcase for youth films.

Starting at age four, future engineers are made at Youth Technology Learning Center. Or at least that's the starting age for its engineering-themed classes. Kids Early Simple Machines class teaches four-, five-, and six-year-olds the basics of building using Legos, which is what all interns at architectual firms design with anyway. For slightly older engineers, robotics classes and basic engineering keeps their brains engaged. And for slightly older crowds, technology takes center stage at classes about fashion and character illustration or movie and video game creation.
