​With the latest shelter-in-place order, we are planning to remain closed until April 30th to remain in compliance with current regulation.  We hope you all remain safe and practice social distancing as much as possible.  We wish we could host your families, but sure enough we will be back soon.  As a reminder, during our shutdown we will be running 10% off all our gift vouchers at each location.

We are definitely in unprecedented times as we all navigate the coronavirus aka COVID-19.  We have decided to CLOSE our Cary location until at least Friday, April 3rd in an effort to help mitigate the spread of this pandemic.  We will evaluate and keep you up to date on our plans.  When we re-open we will start with a more phased opening with limited games in a day, and ideally still try to maintain a single group in our lobby at one time.  

We will use this downtime to promote social distancing, refresh our space, to and train our employees on some of our new offerings in regards to virtual reality experiences that we are adding at both of our locations in Cary and Morehead City.  

If you've made it this far and would like to support our small business, we would like to offer you 10% off all gift vouchers purchased while we are closed when you use the code ESCAPE-COVID-19.  In addition, we are offering 15 minutes FREE of Virtual Reality play time with every gift voucher purchased. When you redeem your voucher and come and play, we will take you after your booking to check out some of the hottest VR titles out there.  

We have cancelled all of our current bookings during this time and issued refunds/credits towards a future booking with us.  We hope you understand our position and that we see you in the near future.  We also hope that you all stay safe.

Our team at Game On wish COVID-19 was just a combination to one of our locks at our escape rooms in Morehead City and Cary, but unfortunately that is not the case. 

Game On Escapes is committed to our guests and our teams safety at all times, especially now.  We have adapted additional cleaning measures to be performed after each game in addition to our regular cleanings.  

Gov Roy Cooper and the State Health Board have recommended for gathering larger than 100 persons to be canceled.  Luckily escape rooms are fairly small gatherings, and a good way to take a break and get out of the house.  We hope you all stay safe and will do our part to help.  We thank you for the trust you put in our team.

What's changing:

  • ​Until at least April 12th, all new bookings will be Private by default at no additional charge. 
  • If you or someone in your group are sick, please stay home, and call us to reschedule as soon as possible.
  • We will hold our guests more to the clock on start and stop times.  In the past we have been fairly lenient about start times, but if you arrive late, you will be able to start when you arrive, however, your scheduled end time is when the clock will stop.  We cannot guarantee an hour of playtime for a late arrival.  This will ensure that we can get the room properly reset and cleaned before the next game.  If the game slot after yours is not booked, then our staff may be able to extend your session to the full hour.
  • For any current bookings that are not marked private, we will block off the remaining spaces.
  • We will honor current bookings that have multiple bookings, however if you wish to reschedule to a different date, please send us an email with your available options or give us a call.
  • We are also asking for guests to book online using your credit/debit card and refrain from exchanging cash
