Small Room/Big Adventure

MOTEL 813 offers private escape room adventures for couples, small families and smaller groups of friends.

Note that some of the puzzles in Port City Escape’s Halloween themed room escape room in October of 2016 became a part of the Motel 813 experience. If you completed that room you may want to book a different escape game.

Motel 813 is designed for smaller groups, so this puzzle room is not as large as our other exit games. Motel 813 also takes place in a low light setting with creepy noises.

Port City Escape Room Wilmington NC
Check into Motel 813!

You and your team must be incredibly daring – or incredibly foolish – to check into Motel 813 on a dark and stormy night. In 1972, the exact motel room you booked became the scene of a grisly murder of a young family. While most people blamed the husband, the murder was never solved. When a second couple went missing after checking into this same room room it was closed to the public.

Now, you and your team are locked in this room. You have 60 minutes. If you are unable to uncover the mystery behind their tragic deaths, your destiny will be no different than those of the guests that were here before you. Enjoy your stay.

“My husband and I went for his birthday and escaped Motel 813! This was so much fun and an incredible date night! It exceeded our expectations! Shout out to Tiffany and Jason who were both great staff members and helped make our experience even more exceptional! Lots of laughs and adventure! We will definitely be back!!!”

“The i9 Sports Staff and I had such a great time at Port City Escape! The staff was fun, knowledgeable, and very helpful. The escape room puzzles were exciting and a challenge and I definitely recommended for families or team building. We will definitely be back to try all the rooms. Thank you!”

“Motel 813 really delivered. We love escape rooms and this one was the best. The room made you feel like you fell back, in time, to the very early 1980’s. Every single prop was perfect. The room had a creepy vibe without being horrible. We loved the puzzles. I kinda want to live in this Motel room.”

“Great way to spend an hour solving puzzles! We did motel 813 which had great environment setting and mood lighting to give you that mystery feeling. If we got stuck, our guide was there to help us (which we used frequently). Will be back again!”. – Cody G

“My group did the Motel 813 escape room and we had a great time. Ben got us check in and moderated our room. He was very enthusiastic and a lot of fun. This was our 5th room and we got out without about 15 minutes to spare. The room was well thought out and a perfect challenge. They have several other rooms which we will definitely check out!”. – Cortney S.

“Had so much fun trying to get out of Room 813…Hannah was a great guide!”. – Jim W.
