Life is still weird. Fortunately, our customers are amazing and have complied with state safety regulations phenomenally. We get it - masks are itchy, hot, and uncomfortable - but we are so grateful for everyone who has taken the time to respect the space of others and follow the rules at our store. We are happy to say everyone is still healthy at A Narrow Escape thanks to YOU.
The Robot Battle Arena is picking up steam! Shane is already working on version 2.0 with POWER ORBS in place of balloons (ya gotta keep the environment in mind). The RBA might even take a road trip soon 🤷♀️
Ice cream and coffee you ask? Lots is in the works for that - keep an eye out in about two weeks! This week, we have three new flavors from Loblolly - Little Rocky Road, Cookies and Cream, and Double Vanilla. We still have some Strawberry Buttermilk left on the menu, so get it before it's gone! Coming next week - CEREAL MILK. Yum.
If you are out and about downtown this month, come by to try a Hibiscus Lime Iced Latte - made with coconut milk, hibiscus and lime Torani syrups, and premium Onyx espresso.
Of course, escape rooms are still our main game. POD is open again, so be sure to book your game if you were missing out. For those of you that have played everything and are itching to play a new game, we promise we are working on it. Unfortunately, our time is very split right now as we prepare for a possible autumn shutdown due to COVID-19. We know this is a priority, but the unpredictability of 2020 has pressured us to secure our store in other ways before investing in the materials for a new game. The story and puzzle designs for the new room are about 90% complete, so we should be able to construct it quickly as soon as we acquire building materials! :D
To conclude, life is weird but life is good because you are sharing it with us, making each and every game possible at A Narrow Escape❤
Our first weekend open following COVID-19 closures has been a success!
We are so grateful for all of our customers who showed up, followed the rules, and had a great time. We are currently practicing social distancing procedures and state mandated restrictions outlined here. Everyone seems to be enjoying a fun, private gaming expereince, and we are happy to provide it.
The coffee and ice cream bar is moving right along! This week's addition will include two new ice cream flavors from Loblolly Creamery in Little Rock. The thought occurred to us that, if we want to make this a more solid operation, we should name the coffee+ice cream section of our store. Two contenders at the moment are Detective Bean and Sneaky Snacks. We're obviously working on it.
The Robot Battle Arena is also moving right along! There have been a handful of obstacles with weather-proofing and powering the damn thing, but it should be ready for action in 1-2 weeks.
Our Patreon page is finally set up and operational. What is the benefit of becoming a patron? Right now we only have one tier set up at $3 per month. This will give you a 10% discount on all purchases made at A Narrow Escape (online or in-store) - including tickets, drinks, snacks, merchandise, and pretty much anything else you can find to buy. Patrons also receive exclusive content from A Narrow Escape like first-looks and testing opportunities. There are plans to create Patron-exclusive games/content in the future, but right now, we're keeping it simple.
It has been an exhausting - yet enjoyable - weekend at A Narrow Escape. We're happy to be back in action, and we hope to see you soon!
