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.
Nope. Just be willing to search for hidden clues and related items…and to use your brain! If you are really struggling, you may reach out to the Game Master to offer you a clue and get you moving in the right direction.

Some people don’t like the idea of playing an escape room with people they don’t know. However, we think that escape rooms are such a festive atmosphere, the more the merrier! We list all of our rooms as publicly available but offer an option to allow your entertainment experience to be private at a slight increase in fee.
When booking you will be given an option to pay a little extra fee to secure this as a private room. This helps us meet our overhead needs and gives you the experience you want.
Get a team together of your choosing and book together. This will defer the cost to all in the group and you will have a hand selected group of friends/family members to work with. In your group, follow our recommendations and include people that are of a different mind than you. Different skill sets will bring different advantages.
Alternatively, you can meet new people by playing with others from the online booking system in public rooms.
You are in the room for exactly 60 minutes. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before your start time. This is important!!! When you arrive you will receive a quick briefing on the game. Then the fun begins! You will be locked in the room and will have 60 minutes to get out.
Your adventure will require some light physically activity, such as bending, stretching, and stooping, so wear something comfortable.
