I have to admit I was not sure about the whole escape room genre, but this was so much fun!!! The puzzles were clever and kept us all on our toes! We didn't make it out but it was a blast!!!!!!!

We had a blast in the Fort Fisher room. It was well laid out and even though we had a few struggles, they were very helpful with a few clues to help us. Probably wouldn’t have gotten out without them! Looking forward to our next...More

My family visited Port City Escape during our vacation to Carolina Beach and loved every minute of it. This was our first escape room, and the girls had a blast! It was a fun time, with a great backstory and some tricky puzzles.
