It was our first time trying an escape room and it will definitely not be our last. My wife and I had an amazing time at The Box. It was mysterious, challenging, puzzling and most of all entertaining. With three rooms to choose from we went with the recommended for first-timers room, The Cold Cade (a crime scene theme). Although we finished the escape at five minutes beyond the allotted one hour and with some appreciated hints slipped under the door, we still had a great sense of accomplishment at the finish. The puzzles were tricky and clever. We kept wondering how they ever thought of these ideas, but it all made sense in the end, which was very cool. We felt incorporated in the scene. We are eager to try again and now that we have this first experience behind us we feel confident in tackling the other rooms. The staff was super helpful and made this experience for us first-timers something we want to tell others about and certainly repeat. We highly recommend The Box.

We tried both rooms , ventriloquist and cold case killer rooms and we’ve done close to 30 escape rooms all over the southeast and this place ranks #1 of every room we’ve ever done . Excellent story lines , great staff , they were so friendly and helpful! The vibe there is unlike any escape room we’ve tried, from the second you walk in. The box escape is a must try , you will be very delighted you tried it! We Can’t wait to try their new future rooms!

My husband and I have done a lot of escape rooms here in charlotte. My parents were visiting from ohio this weekend and took them to their first escape room. We had a blast! We did the ventriloquist room. Very cool theme. Really appreciated the story line! Andy you did a great job! We can't wait to come back try all of your rooms!

We have played about 50 escape games so far and this one was a great experience. Its high on the list of must catch escape room venues!Rarely do escape games focus on the story, but here the stories are weaved into every aspect of your event, details that don’t stand out at first come to life later in the game or even after the game, as you begin to piece the entire concept together. Just like the movie “Inception”, these rooms trickle a story down to the player that may seem insignificant at the time, but creates a moment of wonder after the game. Many times with escape games you look back and remember a cool prop that did something unexpected but can’t recall much about the story, in these rooms you look back and the story is as vivid as the first time you watched a scary movie. I don’t want to say the rooms haunt your memories, but they have a much more lasting effect than most rooms. It’s a great experience and I highly suggest playing here! And the owners are pretty amazing too! They take their job of selling an immersive experience way way further than most and it creates a unique aura that can only be compared to stepping inside the Tartus. Everything changes when you walk inside the front door, and it’s restored when you walk back out an hour later, leaving you with nothing short of a memorable experience.

I did the ventriloquist room here. It was really good. It was the first escape room that I had ever done so it was quite difficult for me, but there were some in my group that picked up on the clues right away and got us going. It was a good dose of creepy, good design, well told story (the person who greeted us was in character when we walked in), and thought provoking puzzles. We will go back sometime to try the other room.

The owners are great at building a good vibe and atmosphere around the types of escape rooms they have. The puzzles in the ventriloquist room were challenging and exciting. The music and scenery keep you on the edge of your seat until the end. Overall A+ experience. Will be going back when I am in town again.

This was one of the best escape rooms I've ever done. So immersive from the time you walk in the front door to escaping the room. Such head scratchers! Highly recomend!!!!

We’ve done multiple escape rooms in the past and this was truly a creepy but fun experience! Definitely coming back to do the other rooms! We had an awesome time— and the difficulty level was definitely accurate!
