    Escaping was lots of FUN!!!
    Escaping was lots of FUN!!! We did Project Mars as part of a family birthday party. There were 7 of us from ages 19-64. Some who have fone escape rooms before and some newbies. We had so much fun. There were puzzles for all to figure out. Everything was working and up to date. The folks that run the escape rooms were very helpful. I booked everything on-line via the website which was easy to do. The email communication was great. We want to come back and try the other rooms! Thanks for a great time.

    Fun way to spend time with the older kids
    We took our grandchildren, ages 14 and 15. We had a ball trying to get out of the Dead Cabin in 60 minutes. We didn't figure out the clues in time but we had a lot of laughs trying. Everything about the Great Escape was first class and the employees that we dealt with were very professional. It's a great way to spend time with your older grandchildren. We will definitely go back to try to escape from one of the other rooms.

    The Blind Pig Speakeasy Adventure
    This was our first trip to an escape room and we visited the Blind Pig Speakeasy room. It was challenging, and we made it out with less than 30 seconds to go. This was a birthday event for my wife and something to do with our college age kids over Thanksgiving weekend. We had a blast. Staff was great.

    Book a room, now!! So well done!
    Granite State Escape was AMAZING to work with! I led a group of homeschooled teens on a feild trip here and they just did an awesome job. They were great with their communication, prices, and service! Jacob was great with the kids, and it was overall a fantastic experience. I can't wait to see what rooms they create in the future; we will definitely be visiting again!!!

    Interesting technical aspects
    I've been to a few different escape rooms and this one was good. Our group of 8 did the Mars one and they had some interesting technical aspects. It was well done. IT priced the same as others, which I do believe is a little more than they should at $30 per person. But we enjoyed it

    Family game night
    Our Christmas gift this year was to make a memory. We brought my brother and his family (the girls are 15 and 18). We all had a blast! We did the speakeasy. Jacob offered clues when we asked and he was very polite and accommodating. I don’t think we would have made it through the game without the girls, they were able to pick up on a specific clue to a puzzle while us adults could not wrap our heads around it lol. It was fun and we are excited for the next game night!! Highly recommend.

    Must try it out
    The husband and myself went on a Saturday morning and did the dead cabin. We had so much fun. Cassandra was our tour guide and if we ever got stuck, she would make sure we knew where to look in a certain direction but not give away the answer. The place was very clean and organized. This was our first time going but we will sure be back.

I took my son and some of his friends to this place to celebrate his 12th birthday and we did the vintage circus room. It was a HUGE hit! They were able to accommodate 8 of us in a room and everyone had a blast figuring out the puzzles. We were even able to escape the room with 5mins to spare, but it wasn't easy! Definitely a great activity to do during this pandemic! Clean facilities and super friendly employees! Highly recommended!!!!

We were so impressed with our escape room experience! It was very cleverly designed with really cool features. We did the Mystery at Cook Manor with 2 adults and 3 pre-tweens. We found it quite challenging, but we were just a couple minutes away from escaping when the 60 minute buzzer went off. Luckily since we were so close, they graciously allowed us a few extra minutes to finish. It was the highlight of our week!

Our family loves escape rooms and Granite State Escape does a great job building the rooms and getting us setup. We've been three times and the new location is great. Can't wait to go back again!

This escape room put so much thought into the whole thing! The clues were clever and well thought out, with subtle suggestions that were challenging to figure out but obvious to us after we did. The host was friendly, and helpful if you need it without seeming condescending. I’d highly recommend this place.

We enjoyed the complexity and feel of gameplay at GSE. That to us is more important than anything. It's also worth mentioning that the gamemaster was fun, engaging, and made us feel welcome from the minute we stepped into GSE from the moment we left. As lovers of escape rooms we can all say with confidence, that Granite State Escape did not disappoint!!

We had 2 groups of 6 and each group participated in an Escape Room. Both groups had a lot of fun and the service from coordinating the trip by e-mail, and the hospitality upon arrival was awesome. Super accommodating, friendly, and welcoming. The experience overall was great and if it helps I assisted kids in grades 5th-8th grade and they enjoyed it as well.
