Overview

We are a local family and veteran-owned business providing an unique indoor entertainment to both OBX tourists and OBX locals and businesses. Whether you want to beat the heat or have fun on a rainy day, our three escape rooms, Mutiny on the Lark, Cold Case Murder of Dawn Renee, and Meltdown will do just that for you! Escape rooms are real-life adventure games where you are metaphorically locked in a room and have to use objects and elements to solve a series of puzzles, discover hidden clues, and make logical connections in order to find the way out (hence, escape). Don't be the only one that doesn't escape the Outer Banks when planning your OBX vacation or your night out with the family and friends and book online in advance to get your chance!

I brought the family to the OB-Xscape Room and we tried to solve the Cold Case. It was a great challenge but very well set up. Next time we're in OBX, we'll stop in and try out another one of the rooms.

My girlfriend and I visited during our trip to the Outer Banks and loved it! We'd never done an escape room but the staff were super friendly and made it an all around great experience.

Great experience doing the cold case room. The puzzles were set up really well, fun and challenging. By far my favorite escape room! Owners were very nice, and made the experience that much better. Awesome, 10/10 recommend.

The escape room experience was so good that we went back for a 2nd room 2 days later. The rooms were fun, stories were well written, and staff was very kind. We even got sneak peeks of future rooms and how they make their storylines....More
