Peachtree Center Monday officially announced plans for Time to Escape at the downtown mixed-use development.
Located at the International Boulevard entrance of Peachtree Center across from Salata in The Hub’s three-story retail center, Time to Escape will include four “themed escape rooms” and plans to open by early fall, 2018.
Amy Fingerhut, first vice president at CBRE, represented Peachtree Center in leasing to Time to Escape.
“Peachtree Center is a highly programmed destination with over 6,000 office workers and three convention hotels right next door, so we actively sought to bring in a new type of tenant that would continue to excite the 12 million people who visit The Hub annually,” Fingerhut said in the announcement.
“We’re positioned in a strategic spot for any tourist, family or office looking to book a fun experience and are thrilled to add Time to Escape, the best escape room in Atlanta, to our roster.”
Dan Cleveland founded Time to Escape in 2016 when he opened his first location in Brookhaven.
The goal for his escape room concept is to make players feel like they are walking into a different place and time period, according to the release.
Cleveland achieves his vision by adding unexpected components like music, animation, and elements of interactive theatre with live actors.
“When thinking about the theme or the vision for the various escape rooms, I think about experiences that would interest me or my son,” Cleveland said.
“Our escape room venue differs from others in Atlanta by incorporating special effects and live actors that really create a one-of-a-kind experience for the players.”
The Peachtree Center location is Cleveland’s third location in the southeast and second location in Atlanta.
The escape room concept hosts birthday parties, date nights and team-building events.
