Attraction to Reopen with New and Enhanced Safety Guidelines in Place
Ready to switch up your quarantine routine, Atlanta? After three months of being closed due to COVID-19, NETHERWORLD’s escape room games, dubbed Escape the NETHERWORLD, will reopen to the public beginning Friday, June 19. Guests can once again get all the thrills and chills they’ve come to expect from the creators behind one of the country’s most beloved haunted houses at NETHERWORLD’s four escape rooms.
“We are so excited to be reopening our doors to the public,” said NETHERWORLD Haunted House Co-Creator Billy Messina. “While this time has given us plenty of opportunity to prep for this season’s new haunts, we have missed hosting our community at our year-round attractions. As always, the safety of our guests, staff and community is of the utmost importance to us, so we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of everyone’s health while still having fun.”
While the COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented, NETHERWORLD remains committed to putting the health and well-being of team members and guests first. Read on for details regarding procedures put in place by NETHERWORLD to ensure safety and comfort, and click here for a downloadable infographic.
All games will be private and cost $28 per person with a minimum purchase of four players (fewer may participate). All games must be booked online at least two hours prior to the scheduled start time. Guests can call ahead at 678-580-5642 if they would like to schedule a room inside that booking window. While walk-ins are discouraged, walk-in customers will be accommodated if a private room and game master are available but cannot be guaranteed.
Amended Check-In Procedures:
Upon arrival, guests will call from the car prior to entering the building where they may be asked to wait in the vehicle while NETHERWORLD prepares for their check-in. Social distancing will be highly encouraged, so please follow guidance on NETHERWORLD’s downloadable infographic. All guests will be asked to wash their hands thoroughly prior to the start of the game. To facilitate the check-in process, NETHERWORLD asks that most belongings be left in vehicles. Small personal items like purses and cell phones can be brought into the game. Cell phones and cameras may not be used during the game.
Face Coverings and Other PPE:
NETHERWORLD requests the use of face masks and/or face shields by guests while in public areas of Escape the NETHERWORLD. This includes but is not limited to the lobby, public bathrooms, outdoor picnic tables and benches. Hand sanitizer is available at several locations throughout the property, and disposable gloves are available by request.
Cleaning and Disinfecting Procedures:
NETHERWORLD has added extra measures to their already thorough cleaning regimen which includes disinfecting props, doorknobs, and touch surfaces with high grade disinfectants. Each room is cleaned before and after each game. As appropriate, additional cleaning procedures may include but are not limited to fogging the rooms with a non-toxic hospital grade disinfectant. The lobby, bathrooms and other public areas will also be disinfected regularly.
Staff Health and Safety:
For the health and safety of staff and guests, employees will be wearing face coverings while interacting directly with each other and their groups. They may choose to wear additional PPE at their discretion including gloves and face shields. Staff members will have health screenings regularly which may include but are not limited to temperature checks and interviews about health and possible exposure and will wash their hands regularly throughout their shift.
Right to Refuse Service:
NETHERWORLD reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19. If guests are feeling ill, are exhibiting symptoms, or have had a possible exposure to the coronavirus, please call to reschedule your game.
