Why FOX-N-OTTER is a great Asheville Escape Room Experience!

FOX-N-OTTER is not a franchise, so what are we about? We realized it doesn't take a big-box-name to make BIG entertainment games. So we stay a locally-owned, family-operated business, that takes the talent and creativity of local craftsmen and engineer what we call Adventure Puzzle Rooms.  These are distinctly Asheville Escape Rooms! Our unique and interactive live-action adventure scenarios by put you, the gamer-- inside the game! These games aren't just dinner party roll-play fun, they are unscripted adventure scenarios that you cannot help but getting caught up in!

We believe everyone explores life with problem-solving skill of a wise fox, and the tactile curiosity of the otter. The most successful enjoy our Asheville Escape Rooms in a team. So bring your friends, family, date, or kids along, or, join one already booked. We even let our guests reserve a private room and share private moments as the main characters in our stories. You walk into a room with your group and the action immediately begins! As music and lighting plunges you deeper into the storyline, you must work as a team to solve intriguing problems, escape from precarious situations, and unravel the plot before time runs out!  In almost all of our stories there is much more to do than just escape. Asheville is a place of hope, mystery, and connection. We brought those elements into our Escape Rooms!

So, if you’re ready for a challenge and looking for some out-of-the-ordinary Asheville fun, then these escape rooms are for you! Our specially designed rooms are great for adults and teens, but we also feature a family room that is customized for adventure that kids can engage with.  We have had young children just six-years-old calling it "absolutely incredible!" and adults clamoring for more! FOX-N-OTTER will quickly become your favorite Escape Room location in Asheville. And if you love Escape Rooms, we are happy to recommend our other local Asheville favorites!
