About us

 Just some friends bringing a creative vision to Portsmouth 

What started as a hobby has lead us here. We are the owners of a small but thriving escape room business in Portsmouth, Ohio, a recovering city if you will, from drugs and economic depression. Deadbolt is the creative vision of lifelong friends who sought to add something to Portsmouth for the better... something unique... something thrilling... something just plain fun! Families and friends gather on weekends in our corner of the Historic Boneyfiddle area to be transported to our different worlds, different scenarios and ultimately escape reality, while trying to escape the confines of a room. What started as a hobby, has the whole town of Portsmouth involved, and that's exactly what we strived to do! #comebackcity
