Escape rooms have been around for a minute now, and seem to get more complex and immersive as the years roll by. Some may even be more difficult to get out of with themes that are out of this world. One escape room in Georgia is in the middle of the woods and will send chills down your spine for a one-of-a-kind experience.
UPDATE: An earlier version of this article, using information from the Escape Woods website, misstated that the Pig Farmer option takes place in a cabin. According to new information provided by them, this article has been updated.
There are a few different story themes to choose from here including Hopper's Cabin (the cabin that was Hopper and Eleven's home in Stranger Things), The Maze: Curse of the Dragon, The Bunker: Aftermath, The Cabin: Hunted, and The Pig Farmer: Cult of the 7 Sins.
To participate in The Pig Farmer option, you must be 18 or older due to how scary this can get.
According to the website, you and your team will have to infiltrate an encampment found in the woods owned by an accused serial killer and cult leader by the name of Maliki Jones, aka the Pig Farmer.
While Jones awaits his trial, the district attorney believes that the killer will walk free without solid evidence to convict him. And that's where you come in, tasked with collecting as much evidence as you can while moseying through his spot tucked away in the property's backwoods.
On this 60-acre piece of land nestled between the trees, you'll find a series of eerie trailers. You'll weave in and out of them collecting clues and evidence before Jones returns and it's too late.
If you're really trying to get your blood pumping, the latest you can book your slot for is 10:30 p.m. — the darkness will only add to the terrifying experience.
It's only $28 per person to participate, which makes for a perfect date night or BFF trip activity too, especially if they're a horror fanatic.
For those who think they can handle this challenge, this is one way to start off fall and the spooky season with a bang.
