What is an Escape Room, you ask?

Only the best immersive experience in Western North Carolina.

828 Escape Rooms are interactive scenario based games, where small groups of players use puzzles and elements of the room to escape within the 60-minute time limit. To successfully break out you need to solve all the puzzles, overcome the challenges and work as a team and work fast! Every second counts. Players must communicate efficiently while working together to find new clues and solve puzzles. Uncovering clues will move you one step closer to achieving the ultimate goal of unlocking the door to freedom.

828 Escape will test your intelligence and problem solving skills while strengthening the friendship, family, and workmate relationships through team building.


828 Escape contains fun and challenging puzzles your group must solve before your time runs out! Clues are tricky, but no special skills or knowledge is required.



828 Escape is a great way to celebrate a birthday or special occasion. Tell us your preferred date and time and we can arrange to hold a private event just for your group!



828 Escape is the perfect team-building activity for your staff, co-workers, school, club or other group. Everyone must work together to escape from the room!



Looking for a fun and unique activity for your friends, family, or out-of-town visitors? 828 Escape is a one-of-a-kind interactive adventure that everyone will love!
