After you enter the bunker you realize that a nuclear activist has sabotaged the systems and activated the launch sequence. In only one hour these missiles will launch triggering a nuclear war. It is up to you and your fellow diplomats to find the clues, which will enable you to deactivate the launch sequence. If you do not find all the clues, mutually assured destruction is a guaranteed.

Your team has exactly one hour to find and decode clues, solve puzzles, and deactivate the launch sequence. This immersive, nuclear-themed room is ideal for team building and relies heavily on observation and most importantly, communication. Perfect for group activities and work events. Do you have what it takes to save the world?

All of puzzles and clues are the unique, one-of-a-kind creations of owner Dr. Doug Testori. They were created to immerse you into a Cold War adventure like no other.

Port City Escape Room Wilmington NC
Do you have what it takes to save the world?

During the Cold War, a vast arsenal of nuclear missiles was hidden underground in the great plains. Air Force personnel lived these underground command centers, manning them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

You are a member of a special team made up of Russian and American diplomats touring one of these command centers. The Cuban Missile Crisis has just come to an end, and the two groups of diplomats are meeting to discuss disarmament.

What our guests are saying…

“Thoroughly enjoyed this escape (attempt needed to complete one last clue) and the staff was awesome! I thought it was the perfect level of difficulty (hard but not frustrating) and kept me going. Actually wanted to do the other room immediately after because I had so much fun. Would recommend this to any and everyone. Chase and Kris were great! They both seemed like friends I hadn’t seen in years…they were that friendly and open.”

“Went to Port City Escape with family that was visiting and we had such a great experience. We completed the Blackbeard room and headed home. All of us couldn’t stop talking about how much fun we had, so we called up and booked the Nuclear room for the following hour! We finished both rooms in one afternoon and had a blast doing so! Very excited for the Civil War room they have in the making!”

“We decided to give this a try as a team building exercise and I must say we enjoyed every minute! The employees are amazing!! We will be back! A lot of our Great Clips sister salons have also experienced this place and they loved it as well!!”

“My family had a great time tonight at Port City Escape. Thanks Ben. for the terrific job you did running the room for us. We were challenged but we still managed to escape Nuclear Countdown with less than a minute remaining in the game.” – Neal D
