Fun, basic escape rooms
Jun 2019 • Friends
We've done a few of their escape rooms, and enjoyed them. One we did fill to the room capacity, and it was a bit overwhelming having that many people: lots of people stuck at times with nothing to do.

For toys and games, great! Escape room - poor.
Feb 2019 • Friends
This is a great destination for toys and unusual games. We thought the escape room would follow suit in quality, but that was not the case. The room didn't really have a ceiling, just what appeared to be hastily added dark cloth draped overhead in a sectioned-off part of the building. This made the room very dim, and not in a part-of-the-experience sort of way. We had to use our flashlights from our phones much of the time. As in most every escape room there were locks involved, and many of the numbers/letters were worn off to the point of - again - struggling to see. There were some kind of cool features, but overall, there are much better escape rooms in the area and at a lower cost. If this room is a going to be a "go" we'd encourage the owners to finish off the room properly and step up the materials, in order to match the quality of the store overall (though oddly that, too, is rather dimly lit in the evenings). The store is for kids and adults - escape room is adults or older kids only.

Pretty cool idea, needs something though...
Sep 2018 • Family
Recently my family and I visited this escape room. As it was a great experience, it was lacking in some areas. First off the price was pretty expensive for what we got. The room's clues were cool and the story was cool....but there could have been more props and the employees were a bit dry. Didn't seem to like their jobs. Would have been nice to utilize more technology and more interesting props. I think I would go back if the price were better but it was an expensive outing for what we got.

Locally owned, outstanding selection.
Apr 2018 • Solo
This is not your average chain type of game store. They have an amazing selection of games, a nice selection of toys for children 1 - 10 years, an escape room, an area where you can try out many sample games, and used games available (rent? purchase?). They will go out of the way to help locate an obscure item. They have a loyal group of fans who gather weekly to challenge each other. It's truly a gem. Stay for a few minutes or a few hours.

Great Game Shop
Jun 2018 • Friends
My family are frequent patrons. Nicest Black Friday Shopping with great deals, very friendly and helpful staff. A Game Library offers great selection of games to rent on a rainy day, and their escape rooms are challenging and priced nicely for group outings.

Get in the Box...
Feb 2018 • Family
This is a really a kids paradise. It is actually in an old building in downtown Zeeland, MI and it is set up so well that you think you are getting into the box of kids play things rather than having them out of the box as their name is called. The inside of the store has the older walls and the hardwood floors even squeak which is a fascination for small kids. When I was in there last week there was a little one going back and forth over a squeaky slat of wood and was fascinated by the sound. They have the really big pet toys in there. There were dogs the size of a small child sitting on the floor along with a giraffe and several other animals and up along the top of the shelves there are plenty more of them as well. They have just about every kind of toy a kid would want and they are the good quality ones. There are books and games and gadgets also. This is a perfect place to go for kids so it is a great 'gift card' idea for birthdays and holidays as well as when they do well they could earn a trip to the Box. In the back of the store there are tables and chairs so even a classroom could go visit and maybe sit while the teacher picks out a new book for her classroom and reads it to the kids.

Great Escape Room Experience!
Dec 2017 • Friends
This was our first escape room experience and we had a great time - was more elaborate than we were expecting! Challenging, but fun, and the staff did a great job facilitating. Definitely recommend as a fun activity with friends and/or family! We want to go back and do the other escape options (there are three)!

Escape room
Oct 2017 • Family
We went to the Escape Room, conspiracy. We had a great time. It was challenging, but not so hard that it was frustrating. I would definitely recommend it. It wasn’t fancy, but it didn’t need to be

So many unusual toys and ideas
Aug 2017 • Friends
Brought an out of town friend to Out of the Box. She is always looking for some new small items to mail to grandchildren out of state. Staff was very good about finding age appropriate items that won't break the bank to mail. So many games and puzzles too. A fun place for all ages!
