Port City Escape Room Wilmington NC
Frequently Asked Questions
Port City Escape is a real-life room escape game. After entering a room with your team of up to 10 people, the door is closed behind you. 60 minutes are on the clock! You must work together in order to find clues and use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles and escape the room. It is part scavenger hunt and part puzzle game.
Our summer business hours are: Tuesday 2 p.m.- 10 p.m., Thursday 4 p.m.- 8 p.m., Friday-Saturday 12 p.m. – 10 p.m., Sunday 12:30p.m. – 6p.m. The staff at Port City Escape realizes you might want to have fun outside of our regular business hours. We will do our best to accommodate your group outside of our regular hours whenever possible. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
At Port City Escape all of the puzzles and concepts were created in-house. Kris and Dr. Doug Testori, Co-owners of Port City Escape, chose the room themes and then built the story and all of the puzzles around those themes. We do our best to make all of the details and puzzles in the rooms historically accurate and relevant to the rooms’ themes.
Up to ten people can play as a team. The minimum for all games is 2 players. We recommend our rooms for ages ten and up. We ask that an adult stay on premises for groups comprised of players 14 and younger, or they can stay and play. This is a great family activity.
