Are you ready for this?

Creating new rooms and experiences for our customers has always and will continue to be our passion. That’s why we are thrilled to announce that we will be opening 2 new rooms in the next few months! You read that right: 2 new rooms! One at each location. You might be wondering which current rooms we will be closing. The answer is simple: none! We will have 7 rooms at our South location and 5 at Exit North. Stay tuned for details!

After 3 months of hard work, we are ready to open our brand new room: Twisted!

Whenever we open a new room, we always say that it’s different from any other room that we offer. The same can be said about Twisted! It offers a great combination of all the skills required in an escape room: hands on, visual, logical, communication and teamwork. There’s something for everyone. Even for us because you see, there’s a twist!

Check out the details right here!

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that…

… the final 60 minutes for Cabin in the Woods will happen soon! Cabin in the Woods opened in October 2014 and has claimed many victims over the years. Many egos were crushed in that room and many escape room addicts were initiated to the concept in those walls.¬†Although it is sad to see it go, we are excited to bring a new and more immersive experience (more details on that soon).

There is no definitive date for Cabin’s shut down, but it will be in the next 2 or 3 weeks. If you have yet to play it, hurry up! If you need redemption, stay tuned. Do over times will be announced shortly.

The age of reviews and social media

Reviews… They’ve made us proud, they’ve made us lose sleep. When we opened Exit South in 2014, reviews helped us get our name out there and eventually gave all escape rooms in the greater Charlotte area a fantastic marketing tool.

But reviews come with some challenges. We’ve received praise and words that warmed our hearts and constructive feedback that made us grow. Unfortunately, we’ve also had customers threaten to “blast us” on social media.

Bottom line is that reviews and social media play a great role in the growth of any business. But what happens when the system gets taken advantage of? Case in point: a fake restaurant in London that was ranked #1 on TripAdvisor. The only problem was that the restaurant didn’t exist… Not kidding! Read the full story here.
