Our team was in the area for a team building planning session. Howard was phenomenal. He made us feel welcomed and capable. The airplane escape room was just what we needed to explore, communicate and work together highlighting each of our skill sets. I had one of the best times of my life. We started out rough and finished strong.

Such a great and fun experience! The staff facilitating our games did a great job. I especially appreciate the fact that Escape On Purpose accommodated a flexible schedule for our team-building event. The games were challenging with a wide range of difficulty. The first escape room experience for my team members, and they loved it. Highly recommend!

AMAZING team building activity! I arrived to meet my coworkers this morning with much trepidation: Actually joked with my friends and family that I may become claustrophobic, being "locked" (not really) in a room. The puzzles were super challenging; but also totally solvable, in the allotted time. I am looking for opportunities to invite family, friends, & neighbors for this fun, outside the box event!

Ton of fun with my staff! The rooms were very challenging, engaging, and very well planned out! The staff is amazing, friendly and very welcoming. The space is clean, organized, and we'll definitely be back to try the other rooms!

Our family really enjoyed our time at Escape on Purpose. Check-in was really efficient and easy. Host got us in our room (Un-Common Room) and on our way. The puzzles were all challenging but not overly so though we did have to ask for a few hints. Room was well designed, clean and prepared. Experience was great end-to-end. There was a minor hitch with one of the props/clues but the owner fixed it quickly. Highly recommended...we will be back!

What a creative set-up the owners have built here. You can tell the passion they have for their job. Very impressive craftsmanship and unique designs. We brought a large group of high school engineering-focused students and they were both challenged and thrilled to be there. Highly recommend!

This was a great escape room experience! I went with my mom, sister, and 9 year old nephew, and we all had a lot of fun. There were lots of challenging and interesting puzzles to solve, and there was even an unexpected aspect of the room. The person who brought us to the room and gave us clues was so patient and helpful, and he even gave us a little extra time to escape. :) We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would love to go back to try another room!

We did the submarine escape. We succeeded, but made some real rookie mistakes. The puzzles are well thought-out, and make sense. The room isn't just a lot of locks, which is nice. The owner was very nice and provided help when needed. We'll be going back to do the uncommon room in the near future.

We celebrated our daughters 18th Birthday here. We had such a good time. Our room was challenging and fun. I’d recommend. The owners are very kind and you can tell they take pride in their business. The price is affordable.

Fun experience with a group of friends. Mostly first timers. We really appreciated unlimited hints! Loved their lobby dog and the donation to charity! This will be my #1 go to Escape Room in the Triangle! Thanks for a super birthday experience!

Easily the best looking Escape Room we've ever been to! The commitment to setting the theme was impeccable. We did the submarine mission and were surprised at how real the rooms felt, down to the "rust" on the walls and doors.

Wonderful time! The couple that owns the business builds these escape rooms in a thoughtful and playful way. Plus, your money goes towards a good cause. Win win.

This was our second room here and it was even better than the first! Highly recommend! The owners, husband and wife, are so nice and make you feel very welcome and comfortable. I just wish there were more rooms to do here!

We had a lot of fun, excitement and surprising at the end! With hints, we were able to escape in the last 50sec. The airplane escape room is very well designed. Owner is a retired software engineer -- very nice genleman. We will definitely visit again and try other rooms! Fun time for family and friends.

We couldn't have been happier with our team-building experience in The (Un)Common Room and (T)Error in the Sky. Our tour guide was friendly, informative, and answered with individualized clues when we requested help. The rooms were nicer than we had experienced in other Escape Rooms. There were secret passageways and the puzzles had a bit of "magic." We enjoyed the much-needed laughter together!

We had a fantastic experience with our 10 ,9, and 4 yr old here! It was much more involved than we anticipated. We all had a great time and will be back!

Surprised how great of an experience this was. The room design was rather simple but nicely done. You have to pay attention to find clues. I love how it has people come together to figure out solutions.
