Thrilling one-hour adventures that will challenge and entertain your family!  Have you always wanted to solve a mystery or live out an adventure just like in your favorite movie?  Our immersive escape games allow you and your team to do just that!  To “escape” before time runs out, you’ll need to solve puzzles, crack codes, find hidden items and more.  These experiences are designed for groups of 4-8 so they’re perfect for small groups of friends and families who are looking for a fun activity in downtown Greenville away from the crowds.

Is your family overdue for an adventure?  Bring your entire family and see how well you can work together to solve the mysteries of the room!  While portions of our challenges do require adult minds, you’ll be amazed at what your kids will solve and how excited and engaged they’ll be.

Prefer to have a night out with only your adult friends?  Leave the kids at home and book a private adventure with us.  You’ll have a blast laughing together as you solve your way through our interactive challenges.

Now with two locations in Greenville!  Adventures run Thursday-Monday, and you can check availability at Escape Artist.
