Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do we really get locked in a room?
A: Yes, but the entrance of the escape rooms is ALWAYS unlocked so if you must exit you simply come right back out the way you came in. The goal of the game is to proceed forward by escaping each room to the final door. If you make your way out of the escape room within 60 minutes you win.
Q: Can we book a room just for our friends?
A: Yes but you must book the entire room, otherwise others can book into the room with you. However ,if you book 8 people, for example; very rarely would anyone want to book in with you, but it does happen.
Q: Why is Xscape the best in North Carolina?
A: Most of the other escape rooms in NC are poorly detailed, typically are just one single room, with no electronic puzzles or special FX. Most, if not all of the other NC escape rooms offer a theme but the rooms themselves do not give you the impact of that theme. When you visit Xscape, our experience is filled with amazing detail, special FX, complicated puzzles and much more.
Q: Is Curse of the Mummy Scary?
A: In short, Curse of the Mummy is not scary. Some young children may find the room slightly frightening due to the dim lighting within the room. However, there is nothing in the room designed to frighten or scare anyone. Every detail within the game is only there to create an immersive atmosphere imitating an extravagant abandoned Egyptian tomb.
Q: Is Xscape Handicapped Accessible?
A: Yes, absolutely!
Q: Do you have any tips for playing the game?
A: Yes! Our room is very detailed with many props. However not everything is a clue and some items may seem to be clues when they are not. Work as a team. Bring something to write on so you can write down notes. While most escape rooms are simply one big room, ours has multiple rooms that you discover and break into. Just because you've escaped the first room doesn't mean you may or may not need to back track to crack the room. No climbing! every clue is within standing reach. Be gentle, nothing requires excessive force.
