A new concept in interactive family fun, date nights, celebrations, and corporate outings. The Great Escape Room is a live room escape game based on the popular computer and mobile phone escape games. Escape games are the newest craze sweeping the nation – a fun, team-building, brain-busting experience!
The puzzles at The Great Escape Room are designed to challenge you to use your collective intellect. After entering a room with your team, the door is locked behind you. 60 minutes are on the clock! You must work together in order to find clues and solve puzzles that will lead you to your escape. It is part scavenger hunt and part puzzle game. Only about 20% of groups are able to meet the challenge and escape in time!
Not fun at all. You have to look for pieces of paper to match your color of your puzzle by taking apart table legs and unscrewing lamps. Then you solve a math problem and finally you just wait for everyone else to do whatever their puzzle is.Eric
Just find a better room somewhere else.
Unintuitive, unremarkable, uneventful.Matt
First, you are split into groups where each group solves 1 of several puzzles independent of the other groups, so you miss out on all of the other puzzles.
Secondly, you literally have to take apart furniture and search all around to find little slips of paper that have clues to your puzzle. Once you've found all of your puzzle clues, you can do your puzzle.
Thirdly, once you solve your puzzle, you can go to other groups to help solve their puzzle, but coming in half way to a completed puzzle just adds more frustration to the mess.
Lastly, the theme of the room is lacking. The decor is just ok, but there is nothing that makes you feel like you're actually part of the game.
Highly recommend passing on this room.
Had an Amazing Time! Did the Presidential Bunker with a group of friends and had a great, thought provoking time. We actually did bet it with 7 mins to spare! Can't wait to go again!Christina
We had a great time! Our group was paired up with 3 teenage ladies who didn’t seem to mind that they got hooked up with us 40-55 year olds... our combined skills got us out of the Bunker in 55:33 minutes... Justin was an excellent “secret service agent in charge”. We will definitely recommend the experience to friends and come again!Jude
Love this location! Have done all three rooms and have to say that each and everyone is so unique! I recommend the Presidents Bunker which is by far my favorite! It’s so cool. Absolutely adored Justin and Joe they were so friendly and extremely helpful. Come to this escape room you won’t regret it!!😊😊😊😊Alexa
My friend and I stumbled into this place on a Sunday afternoon and did the Escape Artist at the staff's recommendation. It is their newest room and no staff member is inside the room to give you hints. After being assured that "it's creepy, not scary," we were lead into the "Iforgotthename" hotel and truly had a blast. The two of us had done various escape the room games in Boston, New York and Beijing and agree that this is one of our favorite. The puzzles are challenging, fun and interactive and have more tech elements than the typical lock-after-lock setup, which gets boring after a while. As there were only two of us, we didn't successfully escape. But 4 people with some experience or 5-8 escape the room newbies should be able to escape.Ming C.
One thing they can improve though is that it can be a little hard to get the hints because the volume of the walkie talkie is really low and unstable, particularly with the music playing in the background. Nonetheless, great design and a lot of fun!
