Last week we said see you real soon to one of the greatest hosts ever, Jackson! He’s been with us at Green Light since early 2018 and has brought so much joy to guests over the years, and while the team here is going to miss him terribly we are so happy to report he’ll be hosting games at our sister location in Durham NC Escape 🎉 So if you visit our location in the Bull City you may just see a familiar face! 😉

Today is our 5 year anniversary of opening!! 🎉 We are so incredibly grateful for this experience and the opportunity to do something that we truly enjoy! Through these last five years Green Light has been the back drop for family celebrations, first dates, bachelor/bachelorette parties, field trips, team building, and even a proposal! We want to thank all of our guests, friends who have been our beta testers through the years 😂, the awesome Wilmington community, and of course our incredible staff that goes above and beyond every single day!! You’ve seen us through a hurricane shutdown and pandemic shutdown and we are so thankful to still be here! ❤️ Please pardon the photo dump of some great moments over the last five years! We always do a giveaway or two on our anniversary and this year is no different- stay tuned! 🎉
