The escape room was put together nicely and was a ton of fun for us. It was challenging but made sense as we figured things out. Thanks!

This was our second time visiting The Great Lakes Escape and we had a great time. The room for Fable Conquest was adorable and the mission was challenging. We enjoyed our visit and plan to make this an annual event during our summer vacation.

This was our first escape room experience. We did this with 2 of our young adult sons and we all had a great time.

I have always wanted to do a puzzle/escape room and while on vacation we found this one. It was most definitely entertaining. It was much smaller than I expected. However, it was still a very fun experience.

Our family of 2 adults and 2 adult children had a very fun time! The challenge was interesting and definitely made us put on our thinking caps.

The escape room was great and very well done. We had a great time. They were very hospitable and fair in pricing. We have done 2 rooms with The Great Lakes Escape and will try any new room they come up with.

Part of our 40th Wedding Anniversary was to do an escape room at the Great Lakes Escape. We had never done an escape room before and this was a great experience. I suggest you give this a try!
