We are escape room fans and have played all over the country. There were only two family members on this outing and we are both adults (with an age range from 30 to 50 something :D) The point being , this was great adult entertainment. Our guide was Emily and she was not only great , she was amazing. We showed up a littel late due to an unexpected major traffic jam and she managed to get us in and give us our intro in record time. The puzzles were engaging and clever. We did the fantastic forest location at Asheville Mall. We are pretty good solvers and while we , of course, did conclude in our time limit (as fans we would have been disapppointed to be stumped) still we had some close calls. The rooms are large and complicated and cleverly done. I highly recommend this as a family or couples activity, particularly if the family members are adults or almost adults. I was with my adult nephew but the space below didn't make adult family an option. Also , I would recommend reservations and signing your waivers on line to make it quicker getting into your game mode.

You did Fantastic Forest with just two people! That’s a huge accomplishment because that room is genuinely designed to keep about 6-8 adults completely busy! You must have worked very fast! Great work! Thanks for taking time to leave us this kind review. We know sometimes traffic in the area can cause delays and we don’t want to add to that stress so I’m glad our staff were as flexible as possible. They are often on a tight schedule with bookings! Great teamwork!

My husband and I have been to many escape rooms. We have had two players up to 8 players. We were by ourselves and did the Adventure Cabin. Without giving anything away, the theme was a bit confusing and there may have been too many props that were misleading. However, the room was great and all of the locks worked correctly. We got unlimited clues, which helped us escape since there were only two of us. I had a blast, and the staff was friendly and attentive when we asked for hints. I recommend this room for more than two people so that you hopefully can spot the important clues from the misleading props.

It is a tough game for sure! We also take feedback seriously and completely re-designed Wonder Cabin and it has a much better flow now. We care about customer feedback and experiences and took what you said while re-designing it and it is so much better now!

The fox and otter has great customer service not only in the process for signing up but also throughout the experience. Emi was so helpful friendly and engaging. We went as a family with two young boys ages 4 and 7 and they had a great time. Will definitely come again.

My 12 year old so had a great time with his friends solving puzzles and unlocking problems at The Fox-N-Otter. So nice to see the kids working together on off their tech! Our host, Amy, communicated clearly and helped when needed without giving anything away. It was clean and comfortable. I appreciate having a kid friendly escape room option.

Making a kid-friendly escape game is actually really tough cause as a dad I don’t want it to be lame! So we strive to make them hard but still tons of fun! We love that you had a great experience.

Went with a few friends who were in town visiting, and we had a great time together. The puzzles were challenging but not unintuitive. Our host, Amy, was fabulous! She really got into character and had a lot of fun hosting us, which made our experience so much better. This was my second visit to Fox-N-Otter. I've done two of the rooms and looking forward to trying the others.

My boyfriend and I tried this together and had such a great time!! It was way more complex than we were anticipating, in a good way! We finished with 5 seconds left. It is owned by a couple and we met the husband who was fantastic and super communicative and accommodating since we arrived late. We highly recommend this place and will be back to try all the other rooms!

Thanks for the review! We know that sometimes traffic makes folks late even when they plan well— we don’t add to that stress and I’m glad you noticed! We add new rooms often and have a new one opening this weekend called Cookie Caper! We also just added a whole new location in Hendersonville so be sure to check it out if you come again!

Our family of 4 was busy the entire hour and our amazing host Amy was helpful without giving it away. Loved the Mini Cooper and clever clues. You can tell a lot of time and effort went into planning it all.

Geno’s Getaway is an amazing room and I’m so glad you had a great experience. It’s been awesome to host teams of all sizes and ages in that room! It’s probably one of our most difficult ones but we manage to win the approval over and over because the design of the logic puzzles is a ton of fun! Thanks for coming out and taking the time to leave us this review. We now have 3 locations and almost 8 different adventures finished! Come and see us again soon!

The staff at this location was really great and some of the nicest people I have come across! Very much enjoyed their hospitality.
The tougher parts to swallow were we had a very very long intro to the room about Foxs and Otters which lost us but it seemed like a fun take on escape rooms. The room we played was about finding gold. While the initial premise from the outside looked good, the story never came together and the rooms design and puzzles didnt seem to make a whole lot of sense in following the story. The puzzles were creative, fun, and well done but didn't mesh with the story line. A huge red herring caused us to not escape which I am never a fan of those in escape rooms especially right at the end of the games steps. The props were good in the room and it felt like the setting we were supposed to be in which was fun! As admitted by our guide a couple clues weren't set up correctly and we just got the answers without doing the puzzles. Only other note is how loud it was in the room with the mood music. We couldn't hear when the game guide wanted to buzz in to us because of it. While it was a decent room we wouldn't be able to play their again because the game choices were so few and seemed to cater towards a kids aged crowd (and we dont live in town). They did say this room was pretty new so if your reading this months from now go try it out and see if the kinks are worked out!

Our family has done several escape rooms, and we have done two at the Fox & Otter, both times were by far the best experiences we have had ever playing. Fun, challenging, and always helpful. You can tell they take great pride in their rooms and set ups, and giving people a great experience! They are the best we’ve ever done, and we have done 6 other places! The staff is great!

Our large family had so much fun finding Geno’s gold. Emily was a wonderful host to our room, monitoring our progress and helping us when we needed. We had a large range of kids 5, 10, 13, 15, 17, plus adults and grandma and grandpa. Everyone loved it! So exciting when we found the gold with a few minutes left. Highly recommend!
