Tonight’s the night! All the fun, not all the 💰💰💰 at Jackson Escape Rooms. #thursdaymatinee #jacksonescaperooms #jacksontn #playdowntownstaydowntown
It’s a little weird to thank a well for participating in a City Wide Escape Game... but here we are. The Electro-Chalybeate Well in South Jackson (across the street from Crocker Construction and @chandelier_restaurant) served up doses of mineral water believed to heal various ailments at the turn of the century. People from all over West Tennessee traveled to drink of its waters, eat of the local fare, and canoe in the Lancaster Park pond. The well is a historical draw to Jackson but, as of the last century or so, the electro-chalybeate trend has given way to various MLM alternatives... so the well is less known than it once was. Still, our friends at JEA have done a terrific job maintaining the well and it’s accompanying pavilion. Thanks to JEA for taking care of this unique corner of town. Thanks to @chandelier_restaurant for being the closest spot to a real high class speakeasy that can be found in our city (how we wish we could have squeezed 200 people in the back door of the Chandelier bar). Thanks to @hancock_nicholas & @wise.rig for hosting Prohibition Bingo with style and pizazz. #jacksonescaperooms #jacksontn #playdowntownstaydowntown
The @jacksongenerals were kind enough to allow us a patch of land to place our clue dispensing gumball machine on this past Sunday for the Prohibition City Wide Event. We are extremely lucky to have such a big time team with highly capable management deeply engaged in our community Today it’s especially appropriate to say a specific work of appreciation to Jason Compton as he moves from his position atop the Generals organization into a new role overseeing the sea of baseball fields that comprise the WTH Sports Complex. We are excited to see the next exciting steps for both sides of Fun Place and cannot wait to figure out new cool projects to incorporate both! #jacksonescaperooms #jacksongenerals #jacksontn #playdowntownstaydowntown
Appreciations to @bethwolfwilson & her design and decor business @wisdomhousedesign for furnishing the entryway to the Prohibition speakeasy. If you’re curious to know more about what she’s doing, jump over to her Facebook page or Instagram account (@wisdomhousedesign) — be warned, you might find yourself among friends with a growing addiction to her Wednesday flash sales that happen every other noon. Without @bethwolfwilson, Prohibition would have never even happened. Thanks for bringing balance and health to the Wilson home at the original Wisdom house. All the work that went into sequencing the clues and organizing the clue boxes would have been a complete train wreck without your input and help. Oh, and the speakeasy looked amazing. You really classed up the joint.
WANT TO PLAY AN ESCAPE ROOM FOR FREE? You have until Thursday at 11am to post your prediction for the CHAMPION of the 2019 NCAA Tournament. Get it right? You’ll get a free ticket to play a Jackson Escape Room! Even better, if we have multiple people who choose the Champion, all of those individuals will be entered into a drawing to win a FREE ROOM PLAY FOR SIX of our new escape rooms set to debut in April. Only one entry per individual. Be decisive. Be correct. Can’t wait to see who wins! #jacksonescaperooms #jacksontn #playdowntownstaydowntown
Meanwhile, back on the farm, our friends at @jackson_state_cc are continuing to come in waves and work together to accomplish great escapes with their classmates. Such a fun piece of what we get to do at Jackson Escape Rooms every day. #jacksonescaperooms #jacksontn #playdowntownstaydowntown
One of the best partners Jackson Escape Rooms has had over the years is @downtownjacksontn and it’s director @downtown_underscore_matt. For Prohibition, however, we had to go behind Matt’s back to plant an FM transmitter in his office while he wasn’t looking. That’s what happens when we need your electric outlet but don’t want to spoil your fun when you’re playing the game. Thanks Matt. Thanks JDDC. Thanks @robertroycegriffith for busting us in. Thanks for the hard work the organization has put into the booming energy & development in Jackson. You are the best AND you crushed the game. Well done.
Since we couldn’t feature and express appreciation to our Prohibition partners before the City Wide Escape Game, we wanted to take the next few days to express our utmost appreciation to some amazing businesses and communities that helped take the Prohibition fun to the next level. Easily the coolest place to “waste” an afternoon or evening just enjoying the goodness of downtown Jackson is @hubcitybrewing. The games, the brews, the shows, the lanes, and the pimento cheese are divine. Better still is the intentionality and excellence of craftsmanship that goes into absolutely every aspect of this place. Thanks for being the best possible location to end our very first city-sized escape experience. Cheers to you @hubcitybrewing and many many years as a cornerstone of the downtown Jackson experience. #jacksontn #playdowntownstaydowntown #downtownjackson #jacksonescaperooms #escapejackson #hubcitybrewing #bestbeerintown
