About Us


We’re Xscape Factor.

Our Story: Starting Xscape Factor

Xscape Factor is a veteran-owned and family-run business. Lee Bowers is a retired vet and his wife Summer is still active Military.

After going to our first escape room in June of 2016 and then challenging one every week while traveling up and down the east coast, we decided to open our very own.

Our dream and passion became a reality on September 2, 2016.

Why Escape Rooms?

We’re all about family, so escape rooms were an obvious choice for us. They’re fun, they’re challenging and everyone has to work together. Your kids will put down their phones without a fight!

We write our own content – there’s nothing canned – and we update or add-on chapters to the stories all the time. So the puzzle you solved last year isn’t the same this year.

We enjoyed doing escape rooms so much, we figured our friends in Fayetteville would love them too. So here we are! The Xscape Factor escape rooms.

Downtown Fayetteville

Our live escape rooms are located in the heart of the historic district of downtown Fayetteville, North Carolina, off of Hay Street by the Market House. We operate our puzzle room out of a historic Merchants building that was built in 1851. We kept the original interior and exterior of our lovely building primarily the same as when it was built. We look forward to seeing you all as a guest and challenging our live escape rooms. Thank you from us,

Thank you for making us Fayetteville’s Premiere Escape Room. Can you beat the clock? Come find out.

Lee Bowers is your host at Xscape Factor. He and his wife Summer enjoy the drama of creating escape rooms.  Lee keeps the place running smoothly, with help from staff and family members.

Creating a great escape room experience involves a lot more than collecting tickets! Xscape Factor is a high-tech, highly interactive production that involves plenty of behind-the-scenes staffers. You may not see them, but trust us – they’re there.

Team Building

Ghosts, gangsters, and killer clowns may not immediately come to mind as a team building exercise…But isn’t solving problems while under deadline what teams are meant to do?

Teams at Xscape Factor share uniquely memorable experiences. They work together, listen to one another and build rapport. All while working under deadline!  Lee is often asked to give presentations on leadership. His expertise in building highly functional teams comes from years of experience.
