Where History Meets Escape Room Mystery
GETTING TO KNOW US
After meeting online (yah... I know... who does that at their age?) Roger and Kim had their first date in and escape room in Charlotte. It was by design as Kim was testing Roger. She has stated that if he was too controlling, domineering, or condescending at all, he was toast. He clearly passed the test. They did a room alone that typically is run by groups of 6-10. They did not escape but they had a great time and look where it took them.
Kim previously worked as a medical provider in psychiatry and Roger is an amazing engineer who's background included award winning aftermarket equipment to make your car amazing, smart home conversions and data system development. So clearly we know how to play with your mind and will keep you guessing.
The Story of Our Facility
The Key Memorial Chapel was originally built by the family that owned Key & Co. Distilling in Statesville, NC. Upon the death of her husband, Mrs. Key decided to honor him by commissioning a stained glass window she had planned to donate to her church. This piece was imported from Italy and upon arriving in the area, the church rejected the donation because the family had made their money selling alcohol and their estate was considered "Sin Money". So Mrs. Key shopped the beautiful stained glass to other area churches. The only church that expressed interest was the Catholic church but at the time their congregation was small and they were meeting in a local home. So Mrs. Key built the small chapel on land adjacent to her own home and donated both the window and the building to the church.
It remained a Catholic Church until the mid 1950's when the congregation outgrew the structure. It was empty for nearly 20 years and then restored and updated to be a law office. Over the years it has been a marketing firm, law office and most recently a newspaper. But the property again was left empty for the last few years and has been on the market for a while.
Purchased in Nov, 2017, the new owners desire to share the national historic property with as many as possible and decided to find a way to host entertainment.
That was the most imaginative, creative, and ingenious interactive entertainment place I have ever been to! Loved it! Worth every penny and every moment. I can't wait to go to their other rooms. Kim and Roger really know what they're doing. AWESOME!!! - Andie A.
This place was amazing. My family had never been to an escape room before. The hosts were fantastic and friendly. They were informative at the beginning, which made all of us feel welcome and gave us confidence even though we were going into a new environment. We had a great time and completed the quest with 9 minutes to spare. We will definitely be going again! I recommend this to anyone who loves solving riddles and puzzles. - Lacy G.
We went as a group of 4 over the weekend and did the redemption room. It was AWESOME!!!! Can't say enough good things about it! The plot was well thought out and the effects of the room exceeded all of our expectations! We will definitely be returning to do more of their rooms in the future! The owners are awesome too, they were extremely personalable and we're there to answer any questions we had. Highly recommend!! - Laurel S.
