Situation Room Transforms into Scare Room

Macon’s Situation Room will be transforming their entertainment experience this October.

The Situation Room in Macon has decided they are going to do a twist on the classic spiel during this Halloween season. Instead of being simply a traditional escape room, for 13 days only they will turn into a Scare Room.

The theme of the Scare Room is "Nightmare on Poplar Street" and will be open for the first night on Oct. 6. The cost is $20 for general admission, and there is a $32 skip-the-line pass. Tickets are available for sale on their website,

Sarah Choo-Yick, one of the co-owners and the Chief Operations Officer of the Situation Room in Macon, said that in addition to obstacles in each room, there will also be hired “scare actors” who will be a part of what Choo-Yick said is a “haunted sensorium.”

“A sensorium will engage all of the senses from sound, sight, feel, touch, smell and taste to create the eerie feeling of anticipation,” Choo-Yick said. “Is that sensation of a person breathing down your neck real? You’ll wish to wake up from this nightmare!”

Each room will also present several terrifying obstacles that each person must get through to reach the end of the Haunted Sensorium.

“The obstacles you will have to overcome include struggling through a pit of spider eggs and cobwebs while a spider sucks on the blood of another victim,” Choo-Yick said. “[Others include] escaping chained victims in the thunderstorm; being silent and sleek to avoid the wakening of snakes; choosing whether to go into the cave of bats or take the less traveled path, the list really goes on.”

The events will be held at the location of the Situation Room on 427 Poplar St. in Macon. For more information on The Nightmare on Poplar Street, you can either visit the Situation Room’s website or their Facebook page.
