Plot your escape in the Boro with Statesboro Unlocked

June 30, 2017

Statesboro Unlocked has brought the escape room experience to the Boro. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the concept, escape rooms are locked spaces designed specifically in a way that challenges a group of teammates to find their way out.


The groups are given a series of puzzles, riddles and combinations that must be solved in order to assist them along the way, and teams must work together and utilize these tools to discover an escape.


Escape rooms are subject to time limits and typically follow a particular theme. Each theme has its own background details and follows a storyline, which works to engage the audience on a deeper level.


Statesboro Unlocked has three different themed rooms: The Lottery Ticket, The Mob Takedown and The Asylum.


The Lottery Ticket


The Lottery Ticket involves a winning lottery ticket, an accidental death, a greedy nephew and, of course, a race against the clock. Their website lists the difficulty of this particular room as a 7/10.


The Mob Takedown


The Mob Takedown involves a team of agents building a case against the mob, a prolonged investigation with a little assistance from a fellow agent attending to a matter at the courthouse and, of course, a race against the clock. Their website lists the difficulty of this particular room as a 9/10.


The Asylum


The Asylum is the most recent of Statesboro Unlocked’s themed rooms. It opened just two months ago, and involves an extremely creepy old asylum that is set to shut down. Teams are faced with the task of sneaking in and figuring out what happened to a nurse that formerly worked there before it shuts down for good. Their website has no difficulty rating for The Asylum.



Feedback and Reviews


Statesboro Unlocked has more than 1,500 likes on its Facebook page and boasts an average rating of 5 out of 5 stars.


Our group had an awesome time from the arrival to end picture. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The room was set up to be challenging and fun. We will definitely be back and have already recommended it to several friends,” Christie Rowell said.


“This place is so much fun! The group I went with the first time I came were the first ones ever to unlock the Mob Boss room and the second time I came the group we brought beat the record for the fastest Lottery Ticket time! So much fun. The staff is also incredible! They are so playful and fun and they genuinely want you to escape the rooms. The price was well worth the fun we had both times,” Becca Bright said.
