Overview
More
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 five escape rooms, Mutiny on the Lark, Cold Case Murder of Dawn Renee, Cell Block 4 Death Row, The Blind Tiger Speakeasy, 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!

This was our first time trying an escape room. It was a nice level of challenge for our group ranging in age from 11 - 44. Everyone had a chance to participate.
