  • Jigscape
    There's no better way to get a fresh perspective on the everyday than at JigScape. After all, where else could you transmute the endless wait to get out of work on Friday afternoon into a daring escape plan that requires every brain cell to work in unison? At this mind-bending business, "The Office" is just one of many themed escape rooms, which range from spooky to hilarious to romantic. Take a look at a few of the other experiences on the menu: Lover's Escape: Unlike most escape rooms, this is a breakout built for two. Whether it's your first date or your 10th anniversary, this is a great way to strengthen your bond by working together to solve the puzzle. Tiki Hut: Most people couldn't imagine wanting to escape from a tropical getaway, but that's exactly what your mission is here. This room's also a great option for groups with kids. Gas Chamber: This is the most difficult room available, terrifying participants with a harrowing theme, immersive special effects, and a grueling series of puzzles, riddles, and codes. The Basement: This is bad—you're locked in a very cluttered basement, and from the looks of your surroundings, the owner is a little...off-balance. Besides breaking out, you've got to figure out if you've been taken captive by a killer, or simply fallen in with a messy eccentric.

  • Catawba County Historical Association
    The Bunker Hill Covered Bridge, which was improved by Civil War general Herman Haupt, the late 19th-century Historic Murray's Mill, which boasts a 28-foot high waterwheel, and the Harper House, which showcases its intricate Queen Anne stylings, all have something in common: They're maintained and shown by the Catawba County Historical Association, an organization dedicated to preserving and exhibiting historical sites throughout North Carolina. The Catawba County Museum of History, situated in the former Catawba County Courthouse, depicts the lives of the Catawba River Valley's original settlers and their decedents through artifacts such tools made from hand-dug iron ore, military uniforms, and hand-stitched quilts. Visitors can step back in time into the ornately decorated, Queen Anne–style Harper House, whose period-accurate color schemes, wallpaper, and architectural details paint a picture of southern life in the Victorian era. The Murray & Minges General Store's shelves are still stocked with old-fashioned toys and treats, which at one time must have kept the Murray family children occupied as their parents helmed the Murray Mill. Guests can tour the mill and imagine workers grinding corn and wheat with the tools on display, toiling away to make their sacrifices to the Corn Gods in hopes of one day receiving Fritos.

  • Love Valley Roubaix
    Love Valley, located at the foot of the Brushy Mountains, is a quaint town modeled after an Old West settlement. Automobiles aren't even allowed within city limits—residents travel by horse, carriage, and wagon. The Love Valley Roubaix, however, doesn't strive to be so charming. The 50-mile cycling race's scenic course is inspired by one of the oldest cycling races in the world: Paris–Roubaix, also known as "Hell of the North." Chip-timed cyclists will cross the finish line streaked with grit, grime, and sweat after conquering paved and packed-dirt roads at varying elevations. And it's just the first race of six in the Appalachian Grinder Series, a challenging task set by Blue Mountain Revival Productions.
