When looking for something fun and active to do on an evening in the Tri-Cities, consider the Atomic Escape Rooms. Reviewers on Google and Tripadvisor give positive nods for this entertainment venue. Found at 1653 Fowler St., just off the northern end of Columbia Center Blvd., this play spot (wheelchair accessible) scores a 4.8 of 5.0 with 188 reviews.

The Atomic Escape Rooms offers eight games for children 11 years and older and groups up to 47 players. The cost for most escape room challenges is $28.00/person. There are many listed games available. Some include Prospector Valley Bank Heist (1-6 participants), The Gold Mine (1-10 participants), and Killer Collection (1-4 participants), Pirates Plague (1-5 participants), Manor of Escape (1-5 participants), and Dragon Tower (1-5 participants). There are several more rooms from which to choose.

Additionally, the venue offers mobile escape rooms and virtual reality experiences. The cost for these challenges is $15.00/person. The Hospital of Horror is described on the website as a virtual reality haunt. It takes 15 minutes to play and can accommodate up to five players. Many worry about motion sickness in virtual reality rooms, but at Atomic Escape Rooms have no artificial motion, so you will not experience the sensations that can cause an upset stomach.

According to the website, this business can accommodate group events for parties, corporate events, fundraising, escape mystery dinner shows, and the Lazer Maze. For very large groups, a customer might reserve the Laser Maze Spy Challenge. It can accommodate close to 60 people per hour, with groups entering with four people at a time.

The venue’s website at atomicescaperooms.com offers clear explanations of what each experience is like, describing the theme of the adventure. The site also tells the length of time allotted to “escape”, how many players are allowed, and the difficulty rating. For example, Prospector Valley Bank Heist has a 9/10 difficulty rating, so this may not be appropriate for a first-time visitor or young kids. At the same time, one room called the Depths of Osiris (a deep-sea archaeologist challenge) has a 5/10 difficulty rating, making it fun for a younger crowd or for those trying the adventure for the first time.

Reservations are recommended and bookings can be completed on-line. Walk-ins are accepted, but the specific experience in which the customer has an interest may not be available. The Q & A on the website explains that there are lockers for your valuables, and you’ll be given a key with a wrist band while you’re playing.

If you’re considering an active adventure out, but staying local, consider spending an evening at the Atomic Escape Rooms. You can buy gift cards, request reservations, book and pay for your reservation, or send a message to the venue on the website. Additionally, you can call at 509.735.4045 and speak to a staff member. While the hours vary by day (open longer hours on the weekends), they are open for your adventure every day of the week!
