Kryptology Escape Rooms in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. is expanding just two months after it opened. The unique attraction, which allows guests to step inside a real-life video game, has quickly become one of the Smoky Mountain’s top-rated attractions.
This weekend, Kryptology will open “da Vinci’s Challenge,” an all new experience for visitors. In da Vinci’s Challenge, guests become archeology students on an expedition to Florence, Italy. While exploring empty buildings in an old part of the city, they find a hidden door. Inside, teams make what could be the biggest discovery of the century – Leonardo da Vinci’s lost workshop – but first they must solve a number of fun challenges.
Kryptology Escape Rooms is a must-see attraction for the whole family. All the fun, excitement and challenge of a video game brought to life in a tangible, genuine experience. Perfect for families or groups of friends (up to eight people), Kryptology gives guests 60 minutes to find clues, answer riddles and solve puzzles in an effort to find their way out.
“The success of Kryptology Escape Rooms has been mind-blowing,” said Mike Sutton, co-owner of Kryptology Escape Rooms. “We knew that escape rooms are wildly popular, but we have taken an entirely different approach with Kryptology. Literally months of research and preparation go into every one of our rooms – the detail and authenticity we provide is what sets us apart and makes these games so unique. All of our challenges are fun, but guests are learning while they play.”
Each room at Kryptology offers a different, immersive theme and a unique story. Some visitors find themselves at a top-secret military base where the U.S. Air Force’s “Scientific Discovery Task Force” has been tasked with investigating strange phenomena occurring throughout the region. Strange lights, bizarre noises and reports of individuals “vanishing” lead the government to seek outside help. Teams race against the clock to unlock the mystery.
Another room at Kryptology is “The Orphanage” where 100 years ago, St. Sebastian’s Home for Children was closed following the suspicious deaths of four children. As developers begin to convert the orphanage building into loft apartments, paranormal activities bring construction to a halt. Teams are asked to find the truth behind these strange events so the project can move forward.
At Kryptology, guests choose their favorite adventure experience or try them all. Each experience is fun for a family or group of friends, but Kryptology is also popular with businesses and organizations that use it as a team-building exercise.
Teams work together to solve puzzles and clues that eventually lead to escape. Some clues are easy, while others might leave players puzzled. No special skills are needed at Kryptology – visitors simply communicate with each other, search the rooms carefully, and if they get stuck, move on to another area or a different puzzle.
Games begin with a briefing where Kryptology staff review the rules and answer questions. Then, visitors are led into the room and the countdown to escape begins. If players don’t find the way out, the door automatically unlocks when the time expires. Although Kryptology Escape Rooms are challenging, none are frightening or traumatic for younger players.
