Escape Plan Columbia & 104.7 WNOK are excited to announce the 1st annual city wide scavenger hunt, Soda City Escape!   The theme this year will be “A Pirate Adventure,” so gather your best crew (of up to 6 people) on Saturday, April 14 to solve clues and collect pirate treasure around Columbia.

Soda City Escape blends the creative puzzles and gameplay of South Carolina’s highest rated escape room, Escape Plan Columbia, with a scavenger hunt similar in style to “Amazing Race.”   The event begins at 1 pm, with check-in beginning noon at the Tin Roof in Columbia. There will also be an after party at the same location after the scavenger hunt!

Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers, as well as the best team name and the best pirate costumes.

The cost is only $10 per person if you register before April 8, so register today before the price goes up to $20 per person.

* Random fun fact:  The Guinness World Record for the World’s “Largest Scavenger Hunt” is 2,732 people.  We won’t break it this year…but maybe we can go for the record next year!?

Frequently Asked Questions

You and your team of 2-6 people will join together at 1pm on Saturday, April 14 to find clues, solve puzzles, and race around Columbia in a quest for pirate treasure!  It is a mix between a scavenger hunt and the puzzles and adventures created by Escape Plan Columbia (the highest rated escape room in the Carolinas).

The cost is $10 per person if you pre-register before April 8 and $20 per person after that point.

If you have more than 6 people, we would recommend dividing up into separate teams.

There is a parking garage across the street from the Music Farm as well as multiple garages and spaces within a few blocks of the starting point.

We strongly recommend having access to a vehicle for the event.  Of course…there’s always Uber.

Absolutely!  We will be announcing some incredible prizes soon!

The main thing is to bring yourself.  Besides that…we hope that tons of people dress like pirates and really get into the theme.

The event will last 1-3 hours for each group.  It really depends on how fast you can solve puzzles and find clues.

The scavenger hunt itself is a family friendly event, so kids are welcome to participate with you.  Tickets need to be purchased for ages 8 and over.

Much like movie tickets or concert events, we have a no cancellation policy. If something does arise, you may transfer your registration to another person.
