The Great Escape Room is a real-life room escape game in Downtown Royal Oak. The adventure is based on online escape games in which you are locked in a room with a series of clues and puzzles that must be solved in order to exit the room. It is part scavenger hunt and part puzzle game. Teams of up to 10 will work together to solve the puzzles and escape within a 60 minute time limit.

My group from work recently had a teambuilding event at the Great Escape Room and we had a blast. A great way to get away from the stress of work for a couple hours and just have some fun.
