My staff and I had great fun at Escape Ashland a couple of weeks ago. We all hands-down recommend this experience! We loved the challenge to jointly solve the riddles and puzzle out the clues to get out of the room. Not to brag or anything ... but we finished the game on time!
All escape rooms have a fictional location — this one is called “The Audition” set in a theater Green Room. Escape Ashland is creating another room in a different location called “Ramblin Rogue” its theme will be classic western, complete with a saloon, jail, and a pending shoot out in the O.K. corral.
The set up: you’re an actor who wants to play Henry in Henry V. However someone else wants the part and hides the script and locks you in the green room. You need to find the script with your audition speech. You have an hour. Thankfully, there’s no need to ‘know’ the play.
Perfect Event for Chanticleer Inn Guests
Many times my guests want to do something fun, interesting, and different. Maybe the weather isn’t great for a hike, but you still want to get out and be active? Maybe there is only so many wineries you can sip at, so many galleries you can shop at, and want some intellectual stimulation that doesn’t involve sitting in a dark theater? Escape Ashland is the answer: in town, walking distance from the Chanticleer Inn, and takes only 90 minutes.
What’s an Escape Room
Escape rooms are live-action experiences that became a thing in 2007 in Japan. They were inspired by escape-the-room–style video games. They have quickly caught on and are now all over the world. Ashland Escape opened early this year.
