Atlanta’s Best Haunts: Only for the Brave of Heart!
You never know what’s lurking around the corner at the best haunts of Atlanta. As we get closer to Halloween, you’ll need those nerves of steel for haunt itself but especially the lines! To help limit your wait times, check websites and see about advanced tickets or consider visiting during the week if possible. As with any popular attraction, get there early. Most importantly, have fun!
Rush Escape Room
Where: 6040 Unity Dr. Suite C, Norcross, GA
At Rush Escape Room there will be no lines as most visitors reserve their time slots online in advance! Our very own CABIN features an creepy theme where you and up to 7 friends have been hiking through a forest and stumble upon (what you think!) is an abandoned cabin. You step inside and the door slams shut behind you. Your team now has 45 exciting minutes to try and escape the cabin before the deranged owner returns…he’s an old writer who’s lived out in the woods a long time…and he’s mastered the skill of skull collecting! We recommend not being in his house when he gets back! Filled with creepy things and dim lighting, but don’t worry there are flashlights for your team to use! The Cabin is the most popular escape at Rush Escape Room and for good reason; besides it’s eerie factor, only about 1/3 of the people actually escape!
or our newest addition: Prison Escape, COMING SOON!
