Review of The Escape Game Nashville

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!


    1. It’s all about time – control the pace of the game and not vice versa and you can win any of them. Like, you get three free clues, but you can ask for additional clues and it adds time to your final “score” for the Leaderboards – clearly, we weren’t going for a Leaderboard time but people still don’t take advantage of asking for additional clues which wastes time. I had no shame in my game and asked for clues – but even the clues they give you are not exactly the easiest to figure out and you got to keep on the moderators (two are assigned to each room while you play) – needless to say, I wore my mods out but tipped them very well afterwards. It’s a much better memory when you Escape verses not escaping!


  1. Chuckling, Grandma was struggling but Grandpa was a rockstar…I thought it went so fabulously for my xmas present for my entire family this year, I am buying tickets for the Underground Playground. Mark my words: my family will escape in record time, but no one will be speaking to each other for two days after guaranteed, but it will be worth it!
