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. Definitely the cutest employee here. If you listen down the hall sometimes, you may hear echoes of his singing.

MAGGIE aka "ESCAPE ROOM BARBIE

Meet the Mother Goddess of our Sacrifice room. Maggie spends most of her time playing softball or Sacrificing our customers.  You'll recognize her by the long blonde hair!

topher aka "Riddler"

When he's not re-concreting his basement (weird?) or sending people off to hunt vampires at The Final Door, you can find him on stage performing improv and comedy. He can quote Ghostbusters better than you and all of your friends.

MANGO AKA "CUTEST PUPPY IN THE WORLD"

Mango is the newest addition to The Final Door family. She is a husky puppy who loves to do tricks for deli turkey. She will sit, lay down, spin around, speak, roll over, and more! She also loves to untie customers' shoe laces.

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.
