Escape Adventure Facility
Our goal is to provide safe entertainment and while we are confident with our sanitizing plans, we are not seeing the community transmission rate at a level that makes us feel it is safe at this time for our guests and staff to resume our normal activities. We are building new experiences and we will be excited to un
We have great respect for fellow owners who have had to re-open to meet financial obligations. We have consulted with several on their sanitizing plans as our owner is a health care expert. However, every business has to decide for themselves based on the community they are in, the risk tolerance for their staff and their ability to delay without having their business fail. We have very high risk staff members and low compliance in our community to measures that would prevent spread. We are fortunate to have time to wait, continue to build and plan for our re-opening in a manner that keeps the health and safety of our guests and staff as our first priority. We are glad to offer recommendations of facilities we feel are taking precautions seriously but we urge our customers to take all precautions you can by wearing a mask and sanitizing your hands before and after going to any facility. Those at high risk should not risk it at this time as community spread is too high.
A terrible storm is headed to Statesville and you have arrived at Key to Escape just in time to hunker down and ride it out in a building that has stood for over 100 years. We have a very safe room to help ensure your safety. When the tornado warning alarm sounds..... brace yourself. Things are going to get really weird. You may think you know what to expect next....
After the storm passes, you and your team will find yourselves in the midst of a familiar world and you will have to figure out how to get back to Statesville. Making things worse, the Wicked Witch is a bit upset that your housing arrangements ended the life of her equally wicked sister. She has placed a curse on your group and if you do not find your way free of that curse in one hour, you are doomed to live in the Twisted World of Oz forever and serve as one of her Flying Monkeys!
In 1925 our city of Statesville had a devastating fire that nearly leveled three city blocks. The fire was started when the hidden still at Key and Co exploded after being left unattended. The owner of the still had been nabbed by police and no one was able to find the hidden valve key to release the pressure from the still in time to save our city. Your escape room adventure entertainment begins as your team is selected to travel back in time to prevent the explosion.
We have built a time portal machine and have the opportunity to send your team back in time for only one hour to try to save the still and our city from ruin. The pressure is on as you race the clock. Many surprises await. As with many of our escape games, there are special effects used. Some physical agility is required for this room. If you have mobility issues, please call our staff before booking. If you have a medical condition that would be impacted by strobes or fog effects, please call to discuss with our team - some accommodations can be made with advanced notice. Room accommodates 2-6 players.

In this escape room, your team is really challenged to solve a complex case. For Pastor Baker, the world has turned upside down. A tragic "accident" took the life of his wife, his home burnt to the ground with suspected arson, and both the church account and his personal bank account was drained with no trace of where the money went.
Given the amount of money and nature of the crimes, a very special team of agents are needed to search the preacher's office for clues to find out who is behind all of this.
This room is great for team building, family gatherings and group parties. This adventure entertainment is very busy and larger groups can fan out and work multiple puzzles at the same time. Room capacity: 4-10 players but this is a busy room so we highly recommend at least 6 players.
Effects are used in many of our escape games. If you have a medical condition that would be impacted by strobes or fog effects, please call to discuss with our team. Physical agility is required for this room. You must be able to bend, stoop, kneel and walk a flight of stairs. No young children under 8 permitted.

This is one of our favorite things to do at Key to Escape. Escape games make for a perfect place to catch someone off guard.
Getting groups to interact is our thing! Unexpected guests.... no problem. Friends you have not seen in a while.... got you covered. Family gatherings and need something fun to do.... we are the place to go. We are even open most Holidays with special hours. So after the presents are opened, while that great dinner is being prepared, before the big event when everyone is waiting around.... arrange for a group head over for adventure entertainment in our escape room.
Some family gatherings can be awkward. Starting with escape games will give everyone something to talk about other than your life choices. The memories will last much longer than the food. Located in Statesville, we provide premium entertainment worth the drive from Charlotte of Winston-Salem.
Escape rooms provide adventure entertainment that brings groups of all kinds together. Okay, we will allow guys and bachelor parties too. We have found that escape games are popular way to start an amazing night out with the gang.
We are glad to help facilitate limo transport, restaurant or area wine bar visits, or even a tour of local vineyards as part of your experience. We work with many partner businesses in Statesville, Charlotte and surrounding areas. Or just come and ESCAPE THE GROOM or HIDE FROM THE BRIDE!
