This was a great event for a family of adults or couples. It was challenging even though this is supposedly an easier escape room. We will definitely return for another adventure. There were multiple rooms to go through and the challenges were very tough. It was good to have the full 10 people there to work in small groups.

There were only 2 of us, dad and teenage daughter. To be fair we are experienced escape room participants. We showed up at Codescape last night and we had a blast. After some discussion we chose The Residents room because it was recommended as the best room for 2 people. That DOES NOT mean it was easy, just possible for 2 as some puzzles require more people.

The theme was scary and there were about 3 really good scares- my daughter screamed 4 times and I screamed once- got me good. We were fully immersed and felt a real part of the experience. It wasn’t a room with a few boxes, face it we’ve all been in those. This experience drew you in. The puzzles were not so hard that you could t figure them out but they were challenging and made us engage our brains. Our host Kevin was great. No free hints but he did provide just the right level of coaching if we had the clue 99% right and needed that last 1%.

We did escape with 4 min left. Can’t wait to return and try another room- hopefully with some friends.

We first saw this activity advertised on Groupon and thought it sounded like fun. Little did we know how much fun! This was our first escape room experience, and we enjoyed every second.

Initially we went to "test it out" before inviting a group of friends along for the outing. For this first visit, there were only 2 of us. However, it worked out that a group of 4 signed-up for the same time slot. It worked out perfectly. On the Codescape website, they "suggest" the number of people needed for each scenario - this is important info as some of the challenges would have been even more difficult with a smaller group.

This experience was challenging and engaging - the hour flew by. The "puzzles" were not impossible, but they certainly challenged you to think outside the box as well as use your team skills. This adventure is perfect for professional teams, couples, friends, and family. Again the puzzles were challenging; so, I would advise checking-in with the owners prior to bringing little kids.

Not only was the activity on point, but the design of the rooms (props, sets, etc) were elaborate and clearly the creations of professionals. On top of that, the 2 guys we met - who made it all happen - were friendly and engaging.

We honestly didn't know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised and are planning another trip with a larger group of friends.

The SHIPWRECKED room is an amazing challenge that requires teamwork, physical skill, and mental prowess. We absolutely loved it, and can't wait for the other rooms to open.

I've been to differing puzzle games in Charlotte, but Codescape is amazing. Their attention to detail, design, technology, location, and setup are taking puzzle games to the next level. I would recommend their "Shipwrecked" game to anyone who wants to show weekend visitors a tour of CLT, between brewery stops, for dates, want to meet new people, or if you just need to get out of the house. Come support the little guys and your local economy!

Seriously, great job with bringing this to CLT!

My wife and kids came in today and did "the residents" it was somewhat creepy which we didn't mind because we love creepy and haunted themes. Our game master Becky was very helpful when it came to hints and since we are new got us started and gave us a little key pointers to help us move along. The establishment was kind of hard to find but once you see it you'll know it's what you were looking for. We will definitely be back to try another room hopefully other staff are as helpful!
10/10 recommend!

We have done a few escape rooms at home and were looking for something to do on a rainy afternoon during our vacation. Codescape was fantastic! The staff was very helpful and accommodating. There are lockers available for all valuables. The facility was clean and all instructions were clearly given. We did the “Deep Space” adventure and it was definitely challenging. I would highly recommend Codescape!

3 of us took on The Resident - so much fun. We’ve all done many escape rooms all over the country and Codescape sets the bar. A good scary vibe without being overly scary. We needed hints (Ben gave them without giving us actual answers which was great) and we still didn’t make it out in the hour. We were the last group of the night and so Ben was kind enough to let us go a few more minutes to finish the room. This too was great since 2 of our 3 were from out of town. Best way to spend a bit of time with friends! Thanks again to Ben for letting us go a little longer, laughing with us and not at us and giving us some great hints! We’’k be back!!

Our group of 4 girlfriends did the Residents room, and it was spectacular! The entire experience was so much fun. The room is super creepy and filled with special effects that go beyond most escape room experiences. This is the 2nd room we've done at Codescape, and this one was even better than the first. Of all the escape rooms we've tried throughout the CLT area, Codescape is by far the most detailed and interactive. I can't recommend it enough. Definitely a great bonding experience for friends!
