Last week we learned the April 11 date for the New York City edition of the Attack on Titan Real Escape Game, "Escape From the Walled City," and now we know the place: Richmond County Bank Ball Park on Staten Island.
Inspired by Hajime Isayama’s bestselling post-apocalyptic manga, and the subsequent hit anime series, “Escape From the Walled City” is an immersive outdoor game that casts players as Survey Regiment trainees, whose graduation day is interrupted by an alarm warning that the enormous, flesh-eating Titans have breached the citadel. Participants must use teamwork to solve puzzles, decode clues and find the escape route.
As with the San Francisco and Los Angeles stops, there will be three events -- at 10:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. -- lasting about one and a half hours each. Tickets, which go on sale Feb. 19, cost $30 in advance and $35 at the door. (It's worth noting the 2:30 game for the Feb. 1 San Francisco edition sold out a few days early, meaning there were 3,000 players for that single run-through.)
Doors open about an hour before each of the scheduled times. Players who have arrived after the game has started won't be allowed to enter.
The titans are coming, and they’re hungry. Based on the manga megahit, Attack on Titan, the newest Real Escape Game (REG) takes players to a world inhabited by giant, humanoid creatures that live for no other purpose than to make a snack of all of us. The high walls of the stadium are the only thing keeping you safe… for now. Experience the latest edition of SCRAP’s interactive storytelling and puzzle-solving games, ¨Escape from the Walled City,¨ on a scale never seen before. Join thousands of other players as you decode clues inside a real stadium! Each REG requires participants to use their best detective skills as they race against the clock. Be warned, though: survival isn’t easy, and teamwork will be essential if you hope to survive. Escape or not, the game is going to be killer! This event will be held in stadiums in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. After already hosting over 40,000 players in the US to date, the SCRAP team is excited to present a new project with such a grand scope, keeping them at the forefront of live escape entertainment!
