Sanctuary Vineyards

Great tour & tasting. Elton, the manager is a real hoot. Bad jokes and all.

Seriously, Elton was very knowledgeable about the grapes, the wine, and the process. Having done hundreds of these, I promise that Elton will give you the best tasting pours you have ever had.

Wine is wine. I liked some, and hated some. Bottom line, I bought some, so it had to be good.

If you get a chance to "Walk the Plank" at Sanctuary, do it. It is well worth it.

Nice views from boardwalk but prices of merchandise at shops are definitely on the expensive side, no bargains on the boardwalk. Shops are pretty spread out, too. Be prepared to walk.

OB-Xscape Rooms

We are a local family and veteran-owned business providing an unique indoor entertainment to both OBX tourists and OBX locals and businesses. Whether you want to beat the heat or have fun on a rainy day, our three escape rooms, Mutiny on the Lark, Cold Case Murder of Dawn Renee, and Meltdown will do just that for you! Escape rooms are real-life adventure games where you are metaphorically locked in a room and have to use objects and elements to solve a series of puzzles, discover hidden clues, and make logical connections in order to find the way out (hence, escape). Don't be the only one that doesn't escape the Outer Banks when planning your OBX vacation or your night out with the family and friends and book online in advance to get your chance!

Had a great time, even though it was just myself and my 10 year old granddaughter. we normally have a larger group. very well planned rooms. the owner showed us the other rooms before those parties arrived. by chance, The Meltdown room was available. He was very helpful. we will definitely be back with more family and friends.

A great experience with the kids while taking a break from the beach. The park is just big enough to satisfy everybody. I recommend renting a cabana and getting there early. We went on slides early and then rested in the cabana with included bottle water. Going back next year for sure.
