She’s left brained, he’s right brained – a perfect combo!

Heather and Rafael Chandler are the masterminds behind Whole Brain Escape, a locally-grown business in the heart of Apex, NC. We both love games and puzzles, and have devoted our careers to creating interactive entertainment.

All of our rooms and puzzles were conceived and built by Rafael. We take great pride in creating an experience that will exercise both sides of your brain.
