Underwhelmed
Feb 2019 • Couples
As we like to do escape rooms and have done many, this place ranks at the bottom. No direction or background given, every clue was for a lock, game-master was nonexistent, themes/decor was disappointing.

I would not recommend this to anyone.

We booked both rooms for last night and they were both terrible! We had a hard time booking the rooms and tried for 2 weeks to book since the dates weren't available online. We never got an email back, we had to call repeatedly during business hours to get someone on the phone. It was a nightmare setting it up. If we werent using the Groupon we would have stopped right there. We do the first room and are done in 20 minutes, not challenging at all! Just lock after lock where you find random codes. Nothing tied in to the theme. I'm not sure these people ever did a quality escape room prior to opening. We had a while before out next room started so we went to dinner and arrived 10 minutes prior like they requested. They had let someone go in the room extremely late and we were 30 minutes late starting our room. This room happened to take us a little over 30 minutes so we still werent that late leaving. Same thing in this room just lock after lock and hunting codes. If you want to do an Escape Room there are two great quality rooms in Lexington and one in downtown Columbia.

Disappointed :(
Feb 2018 • Friends
My friends and family love escape rooms and have done about 10 across South Carolina. Therefore, we were excited to try Great Escape since it had just recently opened. When we arrived we waited a few minutes and went inside Casino Heist. During the hour our game master came in the room at least three times. This wouldn’t have bothered us so much except for the fact that the reason he came in the room was due to employee error. The main goal of Casino is to escape with money from a safe and it turns out that the game master forgot to give us the key that unlocked the safe after the code was entered. On top of these annoyances, we also agreed that the clues were hard to follow. We won’t be coming back. Highly recommend the other two escape rooms in the Columbia area.

Fun Group Activity!

Great Escape SC was a lot of fun! The owners were very helpful with booking our reservations. The space is nice and has parking, which is a plus. The game was thought-provoking and a great team builder for lifelong friends or new acquaintances! The location is great because there are several restaurants and shopping centers in the area to grab a bite to eat afterward. #gogamecocks
