This blog is about the discoveries, values, and journey of the creative family behind FOX-N-OTTER.  We sought out to build a unique family-friendly escape room experience that could be enjoyed by all ages.  It has been a great journey!  Around each corner there are new people, new challenges, and rewarding connection opportunities.  Blogs often serve different purposes.   Ours is simple.  This blog is best seen as a collection of sunglasses that show the tint in which we see our world.

Everyone approaches life with unique perspective. This is our attempt at showing you the way we see the world as game-designers and the authors of storylines.  We put YOU in the game. We want YOU to be the main character in our fast-paced stories.  We hope through this blog you begin to see how we embrace our role in that process.  We don't consider ourselves to be "The Voice of the Industry," and there are plenty of people more qualified to talk about the history and progression of Escape Room culture.  This writing space is a glimpse of our perspective as designers, engineers, game-makers, and authors.  We hope you catch our passion for the craft.

By foxnotter | August 18, 2017

     We don’t consider FOX-N-OTTER Adventure Puzzle Rooms to be the first Escape Room company in Asheville at all.  In fact, give respect and honoring nods to A-Escape and Enter the Conundrum for pioneering the way and showing continually creative options to Asheville without featuring franchise models!  Great entrepreneurs at A-Escape and Enter the…

Organic Escape Room?

By foxnotter | July 28, 2017

Part of what makes FOX-N-OTTER a unique and exciting Asheville Escape Room is that we believe in providing an organic escape game experience.  Organic is a trendy, perhaps over-hyped word, but it is rarely applied to an experience, so I’ll explain.  Escape games are popular worldwide because they give participants an active role in discovery,…
