The hour went by fast and the clues were challenging but not too hard. Liked the final activity required everyone to work together.

We went into "The Bunker" with an adult family group of 5 couples and escaped with only 7 minutes to go. Our guide was excellent! I highly recommend The Great Escape Room experience. We plan on returning in the future.

Took the family here while visiting Rochester. Signed up for the Game Room only to find out it had the lowest success rate; 18%. My hopes were not to set any time records but to just escape. Well, we got to with time to spare!...More

So great to hear you had a great time, we look forward to your return to TGER of Rochester. With each room having it own difficulty level it would be fun to see your group try another room.
