The Great Escape Room offers an entertaining, interactive, challenging, and FUN escape room experience. My family and I took on the “Bunker” room and had an absolutely fantastic time! Our guide, Dayna, was the perfect mix of professional, helpful, and fun (hopefully she found that missing piece!). The quality of the props was top notch, and the puzzles were challenging... but not impossible. My family and I have done well over 30 escape rooms, and our time at The Great Escape Room will be one we’ll always remember fondly. Next time we’re in town, we’ll definitely be visiting them again. Great work!

We surprised our youngest sister with an escape room trip for her 21st birthday and she had the BEST time (we all did!). The 5 of us (all in our 20's) were all escape room novices, but the entire time everyone was so into the experience and having so much fun! It wasn't easy by any means, but it was a great way to work as a group and channel our "inner Nancy Drew" to try and beat the clock. The room itself was so cool and the clues were fun and exciting to piece together. The staff were all amazing- I could not recommend this experience enough. It's perfect for a family night out or for a group of friends.

We had a blast. We did Dr. Watson’s infirmary. We were so close, 30 more seconds and we probably could have made the heart transplant and saved the patient! Our room assistant, Alysa was wonderful. Very fun family activity!

This was my first time in an escape room. My son had done them a couple of times and encouraged us to try it. We had a great time looking for clues and working together to figure it out. The staff was very helpful and even gave a a few extra minutes since we were close to solving it. We had a greate time and would definitely come here again!

Had our family in from various destinations and thought this would be a great outing. Was not disappointed! We were able to escape, but with only 1:30 left so there was some pressure at the end. Some highly educated individuals in this party and they were challenged for the clues. FUN and CHALLENGING but not so difficult that it couldn't be solved by just using some common sense. Would definitely go back as they indicated that the rooms will change regularly.

The owners take pride in making our escape rooms challenging - yet possible to solve. Thank you for recognizing this as I am sure that when you try out our GameRoom (our next escape room that will be opening shortly) you will feel the same way. To clarify, our rooms don't specifically change - they are pretty much permanent installations, however with the large space that we have here, we anticipate that at our Grand Rapids location we could have 3-4 additional puzzles available for you to try by next summer as are owners are consistently designing new games and trying them out at our other locations to perfect them before we get them here in Grand Rapids. Our next escape room, The GameRoom, is nearly completion here in Grand Rapids and we hope to have this ready for you to try in September.

It's located in a really weird place, but it's worth the find. If you're in Grand Rapids and have an hour, this is a must do. It is a very fun and unique experience. We went with a group of 5 girls on a girls trip and we were the only people in the room. We came very close to escaping but did not end up making it.

I'm happy to hear that your "Girls Trip" group had a fun time trying to escape. Our game designers strive to make the puzzles challenging but able to be accomplished. Since our rooms can accommodate 12 people trying to escape, I'm very impressed that you came so close to solving everything within the 60 minutes with only 5 in your group. You girls are a smart bunch!
