We visit Lake Escape every year on our annual trek to LOTO - On our third visit, we made it out of the haunted bayou, a newer room, with only 6 minutes to spare. Although we’ve made it out of the three different rooms we’ve tried here, we are an experienced escape room foursome and each room has been a fun challenge. The team they have is helpful and fun! If you’re tired of the lake or just need a break from the nautical festivities, put your wits to the test and have fun at Lake Escape.

We will see you next August - Maybe we will be brave enough to try the Jungle Box - But, that may mess up our perfect record! Thanks for a great time!!

Very clean and inviting atmosphere! Play master's were very helpful, and we were able to escape Lost at Sea & Lake-stein's Laboratory....The latter in record time! I have done all the rooms,but I the above 2 are my favorite....Dead-mans hand is well thought out, and is a real challenge! For beginners I recommend Lost at Sea, Expert would be Lake-steins Laboratory or Dead Man's Hand. Also try out the small "Jail Cell" trailer outside for a 15 minute escape room experience. Out of the many escape rooms I played, this is one of the best in the area for customer service as well as well thought out rooms. I will be going back again this fall for their Halloween one and maybe a new room?

SO MUCH FUN!!! We have done several escape rooms in different cities and this was among the best! Midnight on the Bayou was fun, funny, creepy, hard, and picturesque. The layout was great, there were so many things to that everyone was busy at the same time - no standing around here unless you were stumped…which we were, and needed 3 clues. At the end of the day, we almost escaped - we were just a few minutes shy of completion! First room we were unable to complete. We picked this room for its difficulty and it did not disappoint…didn’t matter to us that we didn’t finish, the difficulty was fun. Thanks so much to the great staff at Lake Escape!

We, unfortunately, did not get to experience the room. We arrived 20 minutes early for our scheduled time, and upon arrival they let us know they were a “few” minutes behind schedule. We said it was ok, and then after awhile they let us know they were nearly 40 minutes behind. We had to leave so we asked for a refund. The young lady we spoke with granted our refund and was very polite and professional. I’d recommend that they put time caps on late parties and require forfeiture of fees if the party does not arrive prior to the end of the grace period, in addition to not scheduling rooms back to back. However, we are going to book again and give them another try. Hopefully we have better luck on the next go!

Lake Escape was a highlight of our vacation with our grandkids. The escape room is equal or better than any visited in big cities. Ava was so professional and gave us great directions and a few crucial hints that allowed us to escape just in time. We can’t wait to go back and plan to make it an annual tradition.

This was only our 2nd time doing an escape room, and we (husband & I) enjoyed the challenge. It would have been nice to have 2 more people in the room, for different thought processes/experiences, but the gamemaster was able to give us little hints that pointed us in the right direction without giving us the answer. We got so engrossed that we ran out of time before we used our 3 available clues from the gamemaster! We will do other escape rooms on other vacations!

The laughter was the best part of our experience. Tyler interacting with us made for lots of laughs and lasting memories. He was witty and so helpful and fun.
We went to an Escape room in Gulf Shores and once you left a room you no longer had clues from that room. It would have been helpful to know you were using both rooms for clues throughout the game.

We had an awesome time! Our group ranged from experienced Escapers to brand-new escapers. Adam, the game master, was super funny and helpful. The room was so much and even had some mild jump-scares for me which I enjoy (It was COMPLETELY safe.) We also did a mobile Escape Room they had that was almost as fun as the full-sized room! It was an extremely enjoyable experience that I would definitely go back for.

My family and I have been to Lake Escape 3 times and have enjoyed each room. Each room gives you a unique experience, the customer service is great (Rachel helped us today and was very friendly, concise and informative with the directions, and helpful with answering the few questions we had), and the workmanship of the rooms is very well done. Today we finished Dead Man’s Hand with a few minutes to spare and had a lot of fun. Thanks for a fun time and we will be back the next time we are at the lake to try out one of your mobile escape rooms as we have completed all three onsite rooms. We hope you add on more rooms and/or change up your rooms so we have new rooms to try and escape from in the future.

We did Dead Mans Hand — really enjoyed it! We escaped with under a minute to go. Fun room for a family with older teens or a group of friends.

Colin, our game master, was fantastic!! Thanks for a fun evening 👍🏻 .
