"Christmas Conquest" Escape Room


Do you have what it takes to save the Christmas Spirit from The Riddling Christmas Bandit?

Our town is in trouble!  There’s a Christmas Bandit on the loose who has stolen Santa’s list.We need a group of heroic citizens working together to help recover the list by working together and solving the riddles that will ultimately save the spirit of one of the most beloved holidays by people all over the world.  Yes, it is true, in the end the Grinch didn’t succeed at stealing Christmas, but if we don’t recover Santa’s stolen list from this modern day Scrooge then Wide Awake Wilson’s Christmas will be ruined!  The Riddling Christmas Bandit seeks to destroy any and everything associated with the Christmas spirit. So far, the Bandit’s plan to steal the spirit of Christmas is working masterfully. All Christmas lights have been dimmed, presents have been stolen, music has been silenced, and the news of all the Bandit’s havoc is causing families to rethink their Christmas traditions. This villian to Christmas has successfully hidden Santa’s list and  if no one finds a way to stop him, he will destroy all the things that make the holiday season special. Tonight is the darkest and most quiet Christmas Eve in history.  In one hour, the clock will strike midnight and the spirit of Christmas will either be saved by you and your friends or the final step of the Riddling Christmas Bandit’s plan will be secured.  Do you have what it takes to find Old St Nick’s list and shed some light to the darkness that is infesting the spirit of Christmas?  You could be our town’s only hope…

Escape Room FAQ

Please make sure you read the FAQ before you book your activity.

What is an escape room?

 An escape room is an activity in which people get "locked" in a room with other players and need to work together to use logic and elements of the room to find clues, solve a series of puzzles, and escape the room within a set time limit. The room is set up to match the theme of the activity. Our activity allows 60 minutes to escape. 


What can I gain from participating in an escape room? 

You will sharpen your skills of observation, teamwork, and collaboration as you work on your escape. You will have a great deal of fun and if you are successful, you will experience an adrenaline rush unlike no other! You can enjoy the thrill of friendly competition as you try to escape faster than previous teams, thanks to our Leader Board. If you'd like, we will capture your moment with a photo afterwards that will be great to share with friends on social media.  

What is the cost for the escape room activity? 

The cost is $25 per person or private room for $160 up to 8 people. Please contact 252-991-6668 in order to get the link to sign up for the discounted private room.

How much time does it take? 

We provide 60 minutes for you to complete the activity.  We ask that your entire team arrives at least 15 minutes before your reserved time so that we can explain the rules and get your team into the room. We highly encourage you to be on time. 


What happens if we don't escape within the hour? 

Most people don't make it out, so don't feel bad! ​The Game Master will let you out of the room when the time is up, if you choose you can ask for additional information regarding how close you were to completion and even for the solution.  However, if you would like to attempt the escape again, you might ask that they not share the solution so you can try again for a successful breakout.​ 

What if I'm late?

Please call us if you are running late and we will try to accommodate you. Late entry is not guaranteed. If others have booked the same game time as you, then we cannot allow late entry. Our staff has discretion over how to handle late arrivals. Rescheduling your activity may be the only option if other players have already started the activity session. 

Can I bring children with me to play the game? 

Sure! Children 8 years old and up are welcome to play too. They will need a parent/guardian’s signature on a waiver form in order to participate in the activity. Children 13 years of age or younger must be accompanied by an adult. Please be prepared to show ID.


How many participants are allowed in a room?  

Most activities will be for 6-8 participants. Each event will specify the number of participants allowed. 

*You may be in a room with other people you do not know. The entire group is on the same team working together to escape. This can be a great

way to meet new people!  If you do not want to work with strangers, then you must book as a private room. 

Can I get a refund once purchased? 

Sorry, all sales are final. Once the booking is confirmed, refunds or cancellations are NOT ACCEPTED. You may reschedule your booking by contacting us at least 1 business day before your scheduled time. If you fail to show up for your scheduled time and you do not call ahead to let us know, you will lose your option to reschedule. 

What if I want to add players after making a reservation?​ 

Make sure to contact us first. You may add other players if there are enough seats left in your time slot.  

If I just want my family or friends participating with me, what do I need to do?  

You will need to book as a private room. The cost of a private room is the equivalent of booking all of the tickets for that game time. *Note that you could potentially end up with a private game if no one chooses to join your group's empty slots. However, this is not guaranteed.

Something unexpected occurred and I need to reschedule? 

Please let us know at least 24 hours ahead of game time. All sales are final. We will try to reschedule your tickets for a different time.

Will there be hints?  

That's up to you and the other players in the room.  You may get as many clues as you want, but you won't be eligible for the leader board if you ask for more than three clues.  

Do you keep records of the fastest breakout? 

Yes - nothing wrong with a little friendly competition! We do track the best time on a successful breakout - remember the definition of a successful breakout means the room was opened in the time allotted using only three or less hints. 

What escape room themes are you currently offering?

Right now we are taking a break until closer to the holidays. We plan to have two Christmas themed rooms - one for kids and one for adults. Look for updates on our Facebook page, website, and WAWtix.
