Statesboro Gets Unlocked

Natalie Turman

Statesboro’s newest attraction, Statesboro Unlocked, opened Friday.

Statesboro Unlocked is a themed escape room where teams are locked in a room for an hour and must attempt to escape.

“I think it will be a fun thing to do. It offers something else other than partying,” Taylor Cleland, sophomore exercise science major, said.

There are currently two themes available: “The Lottery Ticket” and “The Mob Takedown.” The Lottery Ticket is where you race to find the lottery ticket of “Mr.Gus.” In this room, you go up against “Mr. Gus’s nephew” as he is also looking for the ticket. The Mob Takedown is where you rush to find a piece of evidence against the mob in your case. Statesboro Unlocked will soon add “The Asylum” to the list.

Teams of eight to ten can work together to solve puzzles, clues and games to escape the rooms. The rooms can only be used once and can be reserved for $25 per person on the Statesboro Unlocked website. The rules and requirements are also listed on the website.

The escape rooms are available on Friday from 6 p.m. to 11:59 p.m., Saturday from 12 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. and Sunday 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. They are closed Monday through Thursday.

Statesboro Unlocked is located about 15 minutes away from campus at 1063b GA Highway 24, Statesboro, Georgia 30461, United States. This is near Splash in the Boro. If you have any questions they can be reached at (912)-681-6881, [email protected], or at www.statesborounlocked.com.
