Paranoia Quest: Escape the Room in Downtown Atlanta Opens New Experience

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Paranoia Quest: Escape the Room, an interactive escape
the room adventure
 located in the heart of Atlanta, has unveiled its
third quest, a scenario in which visitors enter a mysterious government
facility in the hopes of uncovering a tightly-held secret.

As part of “Infection,”
guests assume the identity of private journalists illegally entering a
National Oversight Agency (NOA) facility. According to the
highly-detailed plotline, the NOA building houses the remains of a
meteor that crashed in the New Mexico desert in 1997, leading to a
biological outbreak that killed more than a dozen people.

As part of a quest, groups of two to 10 people are “locked” in a room
filled with movie-quality props. A game master provides guests with a
set of clues, and participants have an hour to work together to solve
the mission, if they are to escape from the room.

“Our first two scenarios were immediately popular, and we’re excited
about this latest addition,” said Dmitry Mikhaylov, owner of Paranoia
Quest. “We put a lot of effort into developing the backstories for each
quest to make them as realistic as possible, and that translates into a
truly immersive experience unlike anything else in the city. We want
people to get lost in the realism of this adventure from the moment they
enter the room.”

Paranoia Quest: Escape the Room has quickly become one of the area’s
hottest attractions since opening on May 29. More than 10,000 people
have visited in the first six months, and the attraction is a popular
destination for some of Atlanta’s biggest companies’ team-building

Each quest is designed to challenge participants’ thinking skills, not
to frighten. Solving each scenario requires a mix of critical thinking,
logic and raw wit.

“Infection” has been well-received by guests since debuting earlier this
month, Mikhaylov said. Despite its popularity, just about 28 percent of
people successfully solve the scenario.

In a second quest, titled “Zombie
,” guests are survivors of a zombie apocalypse who
assemble as a special force team. In the third quest, titled “Murder
,” guests are invited to try new state-of-the-art technology
in which they enter a murder victim’s final memory.
