Downtown Hershey is excited to welcome Escape Room Hershey, located at 251 W. Chocolate Ave., and Hershey Biergarten, located next door at 253 W. Chocolate Ave. to Hershey! This dynamic duo brings entertainment, delicious food, and great beer to our vibrant downtown.
Escape Room Hershey is an ideal venue for families looking to challenge themselves, or groups looking to strengthen teamwork and cooperation. Participants are given one hour to solve puzzles and discover clues in one of three uniquely themed Escape Room experiences: Wacky Candy Factory, Mystery in the Theater, or Wizard’s Laboratory. The Wacky Candy Factory and Mystery in the Theater are open now, and the Wizard’s Laboratory will be opening in December. Each room provides a different set of tasks you need to complete in order to reach your goal and escape! Of course, there are emergency exits in every room so that you can truly “escape” if you need to. The minimum recommended age is 10 years old, and the cost is $24 per person.
Owners Dimitri and Mary Papadimitriou opened Escape Room Hershey on October 1, 2016, after the success they had with their first business, Escape Room Lancaster. They found that many of the participants at their Lancaster location came from the Hershey area, and decided to open Escape Room Hershey to “provide the community with an enjoyable and unique entertainment experience.”
In addition to Escape Room Hershey, Hershey Biergarten also open its doors to the Hershey community. They specialize in local craft beer drafts, and also have a small bites menu and to-go beer bottles. Customers can choose from different flatbread pizzas, paninis, tacos, sliders, charcuterie board, soups, and salads. Hershey Biergarten has 150 different bottled beer options, as well as 12 rotating beers on tap. If you stop in to grab beer to-go, you can choose from traditional 6-packs, or mix-and-match 6-packs! In the winter, Hershey Biergarten will be open from 3:00 pm – 9:00 pm Tuesday-Thursday, 11:00 am – 11:00 pm Friday-Saturday, and 11:00 am – 6:00 pm Sunday.
You can’t miss these new additions, because there’s no escaping this Downtown Hershey fun!
