The Escape Game, an escape room facility in The Battery Atlanta, has reopened for business, and with doing so, has completely overhauled its operations in an effort to keep employees and customers safe amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

“We love our guests and our team and want to do anything and everything we can to protect them and create the safest environment possible,” Teddy Cheek, marketing director at The Escape Game, said in a prepared statement Thursday.

“We’re excited to continue providing epic interactive experiences for every single guest and our new definition of epic includes extra measures to sanitize, clean, and socially distance.”

Some of the changes to The Escape Game’s operations include adding time between games to sterilize the space between each and every group, only allowing one team in the lobby at a time, social distancing and face masks for employees, and “misting” all of the escape rooms with disinfectant, and keeping each experience private versus shared so people will only be in a team with those they booked the game with.

Mario Zelaya, the CEO of Bad Axe Throwing, earlier this week said his company was also making measured operational changes to help guests feel safe after a “failed” reopening and advised other businesses to do the same.

Having done an escape room before, there are way too many things to touch that could get missed for my liking. I think I’ll pass on doing one anytime soon.

“The room was too small for social distancing so now the objective is actually to get INTO the room.”

I’ve been in the same room for seven weeks, and still can’t figure out how to escape.
Nice to see you here buddy!

Ever heard of “omni-channel penetration?”

Seeing y’all here reminds me of that scene in Rounders when the poker sharks run into each other in Atlantic City.
