Escape Kings is a fun, new, immersive entertainment concept. It is a real-life escape game designed for small groups of 3 - 10 people. Your goal is simple: work together as a team, testing your wits and skills, to escape. While the goal is simple, the game is challenging. Getting through the mission will require finding clues, solving puzzles, and working together.
Yes. We are a family owned, family operated and most of all, a family friendly escape experience. We believe strongly in having experiences that are family friendly, fun and provide an opportunity for all to enjoy. We are not a haunted house and we don't have people enter with you into the room to scare you. We want you to have fun!
No. We are not like a haunted house. We want you to have fun and will not have people in the room to scare or bother you. No jump scares or live actors are in our rooms. If you want jump scares, haunted houses are what you are looking for instead of escape rooms.
We recommend our games for ages 10 and up. We do allow younger players (6 and up) for some experiences like Kings Quest and Santa's Workshop with their parent or guardian. For all experiences, players that are 16 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult. No one under the age of 6 is permitted inside the escape rooms. Parents and children under the age of 6 can watch their group in the game room for free, if space is available. Please contact us to check if the game room is available for viewing your group on the date and time requested.
Yes. We offer reduced pricing for any members in the military (active or non-active) and children. If anyone is a AAA member or AARP member, $2 off per person using promotion code AAA. Guests and employees of Carowinds receive $3 off per person using promotion code Carowinds
Our games are designed for 45 to 60 minutes. Plan to spend 15 minutes prior to each game preparing and briefing, and 15 minutes after each game to debrief and take photos.
It is possible but we do not recommend it at all. We believe groups who know each other will have more fun than trying to complete escape room experiences with strangers.
For grouping strangers together, we have extensive and documented research to prove that playing with strangers does not often end well.
In addition to the research, our staff plays almost weekly with doing well over 100+ games each year to validate this viewpoint with finding it much harder and less fun playing with strangers.
If you want to do the room with just people you know, you can request a private experience when booking the room at a small additional charge. The additional charge is the most reasonable in the area.
No. All our escape room experiences require at least a 3 or 4 person minimum. We do not accept 1 or 2 person bookings given the complexity of the puzzles require larger groups. We do not add 1 or 2 people to existing parties that do not know each other as the majority of our bookings are private and guests have paid extra to have the spots for their group.
Yes. We LOVE video gaming at Escape Kings and can offer multiplayer online video gaming to groups. Our facility is equipped with gaming chairs, large screen projectors, multiple consoles and headsets for custom parties up to 32 people. We have Halo, Call of Duty, Minecraft, Zelda, Mario Kart, and many other games that are onsite for use. For more information on our gaming packages, please contact us.

You lock yourself in the room. Others outside of room would need a code to get into the room. Should you feel the need to leave the room, you are welcome to do so at any time. All our experiences are not about finding a key to unlock the door. Our experiences are designed to solve a mission or quest.
ABSOLUTELY! After doing multiple escape rooms ourselves and not getting any closure from other companies before we opened, we feel strongly about closure and allowing customers to ask questions. One of our core values is to make sure people leave with their questions answered and having fun. If you have questions or want to see how the experience concludes, we will answer you.
