Current Adventures in Charlotte

Mystery Mansion

This spine-chilling holiday adventure starts in the ruins of an old mansion – abandoned decades ago by a reclusive and eccentric family. Since then, rumors have spread about a presence looming over the old house. Work as a team to race the clock and uncover the mansion's secrets in this all-ages mystery adventure.

Runaway Train

You've booked the trip of a lifetime: a cross-continental journey on The Breakout Express. As the train winds through beautiful countryside, news spreads of an uproar in the locomotive car. Radicals have taken control of the conductor’s cabin, planted explosives, and the train is racing towards a non-stop destination in the heart of the city: Central Station. Gain entry to the conductor's cabin, stop the train, and free the passengers before time runs out. Can you engineer a last-minute escape?

The Kidnapping

The kidnapping begins with you and your fellow captives waking up handcuffed and blindfolded in a strange room. With nothing but collective brainpower, hidden clues and 60 minutes on your side, you have to free yourselves before the kidnapper returns. A heart-pumping thriller from start to finish, you can expect a rush of non-stop fun.

Do Not Disturb

A recent string of kidnappings has awakened old fears in the people of Breakout City. You've tracked the Kidnapper to a run-down motel on the outskirts of town. Unfortunately, he was expecting you, and now you're caught in his twisted web of games. This investigation-gone-wrong will send your mind spinning as you try to save his next victims... Or become one yourself.

Operation: Casino

In this life-sized spy game, you will be sent on a trail of clues to discover the alias of a missing agent, and bring down the syndicate responsible for his disappearance. Follow unexpected twists and turns, break codes and channel your alter-ego secret agent to escape the room in an hour or less. If you're down with espionage, this is your game.


While on a flight, your plane is hijacked and you lose consciousness as the cabin depressurizes. Later you wake up and realize you're trapped, handcuffed to your friends, in the hijackers' headquarters. Can you lose your handcuffs, find out the details behind their hijacking and escape before time's up?

We look forward to welcoming you to escape ordinary at our escape rooms. For more on the escape rooms available in Charlotte, visit our Charlotte Escape Rooms page. For our current pricing along with any upcoming specials and group discounts, visit the Escape Room Charlotte Prices page.

Escape Room Tips and Strategy

Few things can adequately prepare someone for the intensity and excitement of an escape room, but here are a few quick pointers: Work together as a team. There’s no need to showboat or make conflict with teammates. You’re all striving for the common goal of escaping in time. Also, keep an eye on the clock, as time passes very quickly. Lastly, take advantage of your clues. We try to offer assistance when needed, and inevitably, most groups get stuck on something or another. So instead of digging deep into your advanced Calculus knowledge, when you get stumped for 5-10 minutes on a single step, just ask for help. Chances are the solution was something pretty simple that you guys just happened to miss. Trust me, you’ll feel a lot better having broken out after using 2 clues than fretting over what went wrong when you refused to ask for help.

Restaurants and Recommendations for an Escape Room Night

We find that our guests often leave excited and want to chat about what happened in the room. That’s great! Since we don’t want you spoiling the clues for the next group, I recommend heading out to eat afterwards or grabbing drinks together so that your team can discuss all the things you did right (or wrong!) in the room. Also, this allows you a place to socialize and chat, which there simply isn’t time for in the room. Here are some spots to check out following your visit to Breakout Charlotte: At the Carolina Place mall, you’ll find a wide selection of quick options at the food court, or try sit-down restaurants like Buca di Beppo and Harper’s. You can also eat at Dave & Buster’s, which is a great place to continue the fun as well with a wide variety of arcade games! Outside the mall, try El Veracruz Mexican, China Buffet, Don Pedro Mexican, IHOP, Zafran Kabab Palace, Global Restaurant, Jason’s Deli, Longhorn Steakhouse, Captain D’s, Red Lobster, Olive Garden Italian, Chaupaati, Bombay Grille, Cookout, Nakato Japanese, Outback Steakhouse, Cicis, and K & W Cafeterias. If you want a nice bar atmosphere, check out Pintville Craft Beer. And if you’re looking for more fun, head over to Laser Quest for laser tag.
