A super awesome attraction known as the Escape Game has come to Nashville and spread like wildfire. An Escape Game is a physical adventure game in which players are locked in a room and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles and escape within a one hour.
The games are physical versions of “escape the room” video games, and today I will be playing Mission to Mars with my stepchildren and my husband’s ex-wife’s mother and stepfather. I am actually super excited!
This will be the third Escape Game I have played. The first was the Heist.
I went with my husband, stepdaughter, and stepsons to the Heist and it was the first time we had all played. Needless to say, we did not Escape, but it was a blast.
Now, during the Heist, I had been pretty chill, although it is pretty intense. Everyone in the family is more of a leader-type, but if you have too many chiefs it can get chaotic as you cannot beat a game alone – you need teamwork. As I tend to balance the energy, I gladly assumed role of Indian. Besides, I was pretty dazzled by the intricacy of the Escape Room and all the cool details that go into building a room. The Escape Game in Nashville spares no expense. I mean, it’s really cool.
For Prison Break, it was all four of my stepkids, myself, and my husband’s ex-wife’s stepfather and mother. It was actually the first time I had met my husband’s ex-wife’s stepfather and mother.
Now, if I am locked in a prison cell with my husband’s ex-wive’s mother and stepfather, the “pretty chill” part of me transforms to: “We’re escaping.” It’s not a “Oh, we’re going to try” – its’ called “Consider it Done” in my mind. I can handle a lot of things, but being stuck with that crew in a prison cell left no option. So I busted butt and with 20 seconds to spare, we ESCAPED! (Now, the whole team worked their butt’s off too – you cannot beat the games alone, but let’s just say I was super motivated!)
Now today…at 6:30pm CST…all four of my stepkids, myself, and my husband’s ex-wife’s stepfather and mother are playing the newest Escape Game: Mission to Mars.
Now, call me weird, but I feel absolutely no pressure – I don’t mind being stuck in Mars with the crew but a prison cell – no f******* way!
The Escape Games are awesome and great for families, co-workers, and anyone who enjoys those type of things, but if one is in the Nashville area, I give it a 10/10 of experiences to do!
