About
Great Escape is a fun and simple, yet challenging REAL LIFE ESCAPE GAME. Your team of 3 to 6 are locked in a themed room. You have 1 hour to escape using nothing but your wits and intellect, creativity and common sense! It's all about the buzz of solving clues and puzzles. Why go to the movies when you can be more than a passive bystander in your own entertainment.
Duration: 1-2 hours

    The “Alice” escape room
    We were a group of 4 adults and 2 children, we did the “Alice” room. The Escape Room was well thought out, the clues kept us very busy, they were difficult enough to keep us all thinking, and very gratifying once they were solved. I’d definitely recommend Great Escapes. A fun family experience.

    Great experience, highly recommended
    Such a fun activity for a group. This is the third escape room we've done and really enjoyed our experience. Difficult enough to get your brain going but not impossible. Helpful hints, good immersion and the host was great.

    Behind Enemy Lines
    Behind Enemy Lines was great fun. We found it challenging, but not too difficult. Great layout, made it easy to work together as a team. The staff member was great to deal with as well. Would highly recommend and we plan to come back for the Titanic room for the next birthday!

Worker was 10 minutes late to open the room which was a bit annoying as we arrived early to be on time. Few things weren’t working properly in the room and room felt spoiled as a worker had to come in to unlock something for us, made it hard to achieve some things. Room was themed well but not sure if we would try others at this place sadly

It’s a great escape to unwind. Challenging but yet still fun to spend the night with your friends or co-workers.
Will definitely come back and try other rooms.

Great Escape provides an awesome escape game experience! The puzzles are super fun, and you can tell the team puts a lot of effort into making everything feel real. The people working there are really friendly and make you feel comfortable. It's a cool spot for a fun and memorable time! 🌟

A late and uninspiring introduction followed by a non-engaging escape room (behind enemy lines). We have done more than 10 of these escape rooms and this one is by far the least fun we have had.

The escape had complex but interesting clues but don't spend too long trying to work out the initial clues for yourself. You will need some assistance. Don't be shy to ask for clues early to get you underway, there is quite a lot to work out! A great escape!

We did two rooms over the course ofnteo days, ranging from moderately difficult to very difficult. Enjoyed them both very much. They were the ideal activities on a couple of dreary days. Very fun!
