Savannah has some of the most dynamic activity scenes that you’ll ever see. You can indulge in authentic cuisine, shop at some of the finest boutiques and stores or learn some history at the many museums that the city has to offer.
But there is one unique activity room that can be fun for everyone: an Escape Room.
An Escape Room or “escape game” is a physical adventure game that requires players to solve a series of riddles and puzzles using clues, hints and strategy to solve tasks.
And there are different themes for each room such as an infected sickness room, a pirate room, a ghost room, etc.
The games usually gives players 60 minutes to escape but obviously the goal is to escape as quickly as possible.
If you want to play Sherlock Holmes in a locked room with friends or family, this is the game to play.
Luckily, Savannah has 3 Escape Rooms to choose from.

Escape Savannah, 905 Abercorn Street
Voted as Savannah’s first #1 Escape Room by South Magazine, ranked as #1 among 22 attractions in Savannah by TripAdvisor and voted one of the top 14 Escape Rooms in the U.S. by Zozi, Escape Savannah has received the most accolades out of all 3 of the Savannah Escape Rooms.
Their rooms include zombies, ghosts and pirates. Their tickets are around $31, and they have a $3 discount for retired and active military members.
Street parking can be scarce, so early arrival is recommended even though Escape Rooms want players to arrive 15 minutes early already.
Their website also exudes originality and excitement so Escape Savannah doesn’t look like a bad choice.
The Escape Company, 30 Montgomery Street
The Escape Company is not your typical Escape Room. Recently opened for business in April, The Escape Company currently has 2 games that have 2 different difficulty rankings; their serial killer game is ranked slightly less difficult than their house ghost game. They currently have 3 additional games in the works as well.
And while players wait to participate in the games, The Escape Company has a “Hideaway Lounge” where players or anyone off the street can come by and relax. The lounge has trivia and board games to keep people occupied. Guess what else they have?
What better way to relax after an intense Escape Room game than by throwing back a cold drink?
The Escape Company has everything you want in an Escape Room and more.
They also have another location in Orlando, so they must be doing something right.
Encryption: Escape and Adventure Game, 31 Montgomery Street
That is not a typo; Encryption is right across the street from The Escape Company.
Capitalism am I right?
Encryption has 3 games to choose from: a pirate rescue, an art theft and a runaway bride. Those games are in order of difficulty with the runaway bride game being available to ages 16 and over because of its difficulty.
Unlike other Escape Rooms, Encryption does not require its players to fill a game up to maximum capacity. So 2 or 3 players can play by themselves but one person cannot play a game by themselves.
Their cancellation policy is a little stricter than others so make sure that all players are arriving on time.
