About Columbia's #1 Ranked Escape Room

HOW IT STARTED

It all started when two sisters, Lexie and Tracy, went to an escape room one boring Thursday night in late 2015. The love connection was instantaneous! Our obsession with escape rooms began and we haven't looked back since. We do this because we love the thrill, it's our passion to create immersive and unique escape rooms. We strive to continue improving and providing a quality experience.

We are not a franchise, The Final Door is 100% locally owned and operated.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

BEER & WINE LOBBY

We are the only escape room in South Carolina with a beer and wine lobby.  You can even order drinks to be hidden in your game. Our lobby is cozy and inviting. Entertaining puzzles and games are scattered thru out the lobby: Cards Against Humanity, Checkers, Scrabble, Rubiks Cubes, and more!

SMALL GROUP CAPACITIES

We limit most of our rooms to 6 or 8 people and even have the ONLY 4 person room in Columbia. Why is a lower room capacity important for you? For starters, it means you have less chance of being grouped with strangers AND you won't worry about people standing around with nothing to solve because there's too many people in the room.

ORIGINAL ROOMS & PROPS

Every single one of our game designs and puzzles are created in house. We don't buy room designs online like most other escape rooms, which means you won't find another experience like ours anywhere else in the world. Even our props are hand made, so they aren't cheap and you don't get that 'made in China' feel.

HIGH IMMERSION

The rooms at The Final Door are, hands down, the most immersive escape rooms in Columbia. Each experience features an immersive introduction to the game that creates an experience unlike any other in South Carolina.

TWISTS & TURNS

All of our rooms are full of the unexpected and many "WOW" moments. Maybe you find yourself to be an integral part of the story; or, possibly, you unlock something to find a completely unexpected new path in the game.

GENERATION 2 ROOMS

What's a generation 2 room? Basically, a gen 2 room has multiple rooms (usually 3 or more) for each game, high tech puzzles, as well as being story driven and having an immersive set design. A gen 1 room will be a single room (possibly two) with mostly physical locks and little story/set design.

TYLER aka "SWEET T"

Tyler was our first employee here at The Final Door. Full time student by day, cult member/serial killer by night. Despite being our most experienced employee, he still gets stuck writing lines as his most fitting punishment for his constand "foot-in-mouth" problem. Please remind him he is NOT cuter than his boss.

CAROLINE aka "THE SCREAMER"

Caroline is a theater major at USC and we have been fortunate enough for her to grace us with her skills at The Final Door!  According to one costumer's review, "her brows and highlights are on fleek!"  The senior staff enjoy throwing fake cockroaches at her and finding other ways to scare her.

REBECCA aka "THE STONER"

Rebecca is our dedicated stoner.  And by stoner, we mean this girl can create and paint some amazing set design stones.  Our Vampyr room is set in a Romanian Castle, and this stone-making rock star painted our castle rocks three times faster than anyone else.  She is a stone machine!

DAN aka "OTHER"

Other was almost nick-named "Handy".  This guy is incredibly talented.  Drunk and rowdy customers can try their hardest, but, there is nothing they can break that Other can't fix!  In addition, his alternate Russian personality is very convincing and entertaining.

SADIE aka "CYNIC"

You might recognize this voice if you have a keen ear.  Radio personality by day, Vampyr hunter by night.  Sometimes she has pink hair, sometimes it's blue.  This rocker chick fits in perfectly at The Final Door!

HUNTER aka "THE VOICE"

You'll find yourself lucky if you find this hidden treasure of the escape room.  He's spends most of his time entertaining Columbia on Fox 102.3.  Every once in a while, he uses his talents to scare people in The Blackout room.  He also HATES bitmojis!

KHYLE aka "KRIEGER"

Khyle is our unseen hero. He moves like a shadow in the night, moving quickly to make sure everything in the rooms return to their rightful places. When he's not cleaning up blood or leftover body parts, he's enjoying a nice ham sandwhich in the back. At least, we thinks it's ham...

Angie is a teacher by day and her students have no idea that she heads up an evil cult at The Final Door in her spare time. If you find yourself captured by Angie, please, raise your hand and refer to her as Mrs Cult Leader. She expects her captures to be as well behaved and respectful as her students.

JESSICA RABBIT aka "B!*%# BUNNY"

Jessica lives at The Final Door.  She works for carrots, kale and broccoli.  She eats every piece of paper that falls on the ground.  She loves to sneak into the back construction room and run from anyone who tries to catch her.  She's surprisingly strong and fast!

THE FINAL DOOR GHOST

Some of the staff at The Final Door are convinced there is a ghost in the building.  Occasionally, lights turn on by themselves, objects hanging from the wall start swinging, doors open/shut, and loud noises are heard in empty rooms/hallways.
