Hungary-Based PanIQ Escape Rooms Expanding to Atlanta

Three 'Generation III' escape rooms—a medieval dungeon, a spy thriller, and a wizard theme—will replace a Home Park salon in Q2.

Hungary-based PanIQ Escape Rooms is expanding to Atlanta.

The company is currently in permitting with the City to convert a salon, at 670 10th street, into the three-game escape room facility.

All of the “puzzles” are ready to install, according to PanIQ Co-Founder and CEO Akos Gabossy, who is aiming for a Q2 opening.

“Our escape rooms are quest and story-based, so the focus is on solving a mission and having a fun adventure,” Gabossy in an email told What Now Atlanta.

“We also make the games private so you don’t have to get locked in with random people.”

PanIQ will offer three rooms: a medieval dungeon, a spy thriller, and a wizard theme.

All three rooms will be “Generation III” which are “very complex and spectacular” and “rely on magnetic locks and immersive special effects, instead of opening locks and finding keys.”

PanIQ opened its first escape room in Hungary in 2012.

Its first U.S. location debuted in 2014.

State-side, the company now has locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Phoenix, Houston, Dallas, Nashville, Chicago, New York City, Washington, D.C., and Miami, with locations in the Bahamas and Atlanta coming soon.
