Overview

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.

What do you get when you lock a lawyer, a teacher, a priest, and a theologian in a room for 60+ minutes to discover an escape route? You get 90 minutes of hilarious fun, as well as an insight to your friends and family 's...More

Attended as part of an office social activity and was a fun experience. We had some issues with one of the lock boxes in our room, which slowed us down and we didn't escape before the clock ran out, but was still a good team...More

Our kids are 12 and 9 and was great fun to take them along with Grandparents. Everyone contributed something to help us get out, just as the sirens started! Will definitely return for another room.

Very challenging and lots of fun! Demanding work, even in a group of four! Watch out for blocks of wood on your head!

This was one of our twice yearly mystery outings. It was the boys turn to come up with a novel event. We had an awesome evening "behind enemy lines" working through a series of locks whose combinations we had to carefully work out. We discovered...More

Extremely fun, everyone had a blast. This was a corporate team building group, and was extremely effective for this purpose. Very challenging but the sense of accomplishment is awesome!

Will you have a customer bathroom at any point? It seems like the one major flaw at present.

Unfortunately it is a lease issue. We are in an old building which we can't alter therefore we can't add any facilities. I understand where you coming from but our hands are tied.

We did Prison Break and our 10yr old girl freaked out at the start and we had to let her out. The staff kindly looked after her and let her watch us on the monitor. I think she would have been OK in "Alice" but we didn't... More
