‘Key To Escape’ opens Holiday Room
STATESVILLE — Key to Escape opened their first escape room, Where There is a Will There is a Way, in March of 2018. Since then, they have opened two more rooms at their historic facility at 150 E. Sharpe Street, as well as created several portable mini-games, scavenger hunts, and other fun challenges for the community. Last weekend, after running for 20 months and challenging more than 5200 people, Key to Escape retired their first room, affectionately deemed, “Clara’s room.”
On November 27, a Holiday themed room, Nutty Holidays, will open to the public. This room is a tribute to all of our favorite Holiday classics with a subtle and nutty twist. It will be perfect for holiday outings with family, friends or parties.
