With Thanksgiving come and gone and Christmas right around the corner, we are barreling toward an event that is every bit as reliable as St. Nick making his rounds on Christmas Eve: corporate parties. These holiday shindigs run the gamut from a snoozefest held in the office, with the only perk being white elephant gift exchanges and an open bar, to legendary outings at amazing destinations, like Google renting out Disneyland for a night of fun just for employees. So before you start hanging mistletoe over the secretary’s desk and making a run to the liquor store, consider doing something a little different this year; your employees work hard, so don’t they deserve a holiday party that truly says “thank you”? This year, plan your corporate parties at a place that is not only fun, but will bring your employees closer together – book an escape room at Paranoia Quest! Read more
So you’ve found yourself in Gainesville, GA. That’s right, Georgia; and it’s a far cry from the hip and fun Gainesville, FL, that punk/ska band Less Than Jake can’t stop singing about. Bummer. But don’t despair, as there are plenty of fun things to do in the southeast’s lesser of two Gainesvilles, including the intense, scary and extremely fun escape rooms at Paranoia Quest’s Buford location near the Mall of Georgia.
A few ideas …
Lake Lanier: If you live in Georgia, chances are you’ve been to Lake Lanier at least once. Boasting not just the lake itself, but fishing, boating and even a world-class water park, Lake Lanier is the go-to for many Georgia families during the summer months (though winter’s holiday light show gets plenty of visitors as well).
Atlanta Botanical Gardens: Yes, the Atlanta Botanical Gardens is located inside city limits, but an offshoot exists in Gainesville as well. If plants and flowers are your thing and driving to the main campus isn’t an option, this location certainly helps with finding unique things to do in Gainesville.
Main Street Gainesville: Gainesville’s downtown sector has been rebranded as Main Street Gainesville in an attempt to match the success of other live/work/play communities in Georgia, like Milton’s Avalon or the city’s Atlantic Station. Restaurants, clubs, shopping and family activities make this a good place to spend your time (and money).
Paranoia Quest: Located just around the corner from the Mall of Georgia, Buford’s Paranoia Quest offers four separate escape room games, including the virtual reality-based Pocket Universe and the all-new Witch Hunter. If problem solving action or simply just group bonding is in your future, Paranoia Quest provides a fun and unique way to spend an afternoon.

Virtual Reality and Real Worlds Combine
Virtual Reality technology has been quietly circling the public for years. Mainly available to the military for training, the average person has sadly, for the most part, been left out of experiencing a world only reachable through the marriage of one’s mind and computers. That is until now.
Seen as the next trend for 2017 to hit everyday users, big names such as Samsung and Google have already begun the process of launching personal VR headsets with the intention of making their users the first to enter the landscape of a new undiscovered world, virtual reality. With the launch of YouTube’s 360-degree video marketing services, companies are already lining up to sell you their next new product in your virtual world.
Many experts thank Pokémon Go and our friend Pikachu for leading the way for the general public into seeing a world outside of their own two eyes. And for those aimlessly searching the dark nights for that elusive next Pokémon, we know the excitement and madness that can ensue when your mind enters the virtual world.
So as the everyday person prepares to enter the landscape of virtual reality, it is up to the adventurers and courageous souls who dare to go one step beyond, to find a world even more daring to conquer. For those brave enough to enter, the virtual reality frontier is not just one with unique landscapes, but one where one’s very one survival is challenged. A place where there are puzzles to solve, pathways to find and dangers to conquer. A new world that is not just seen but felt, heard and experienced. For these EXTREME explorers a new virtual reality is about to catapult on to the scene in the way of the Virtual Reality Escape Room.
Enter the Manor
On October 31, 2016 at the Mall of Georgia a new VR phenomenon will explode onto the scene guaranteeing to change the world of Escape Room adventures forever. We, at Paranoia Quest Escape the Room, are proud to be the first in Georgia to bring this new virtual reality experience to our players through Geist Manor.
We dare not share too much of the game’s revolutionary technology and thrilling features that are guaranteed to challenge adventurers to master a whole new level of escape room skills. That said what we will say is that with Geist Manor, your mind becomes a whole new area to explore. In a world where what is in front of you isn’t always what it seems, making the wrong choice can lead you to things that reside far outside the logical mind; impossible to be, yet the horrors you face are there and literally right in front of you. All the while your mind is saying this is not real, still you can see, hear and feel that they are indeed real and must be mastered to escape the manor.
So we at Paranoia Quest Escape the Room ask you, are you ready to enter our virtual reality? On October 31, 2016 Geist Manor awaits you, enter if you dare.
