AboutWhat is the Great Room Escape?

The Great Room Escape is a fully interactive and immersive experience unlike anything you have ever done before. No longer do you sit back and watch the show, now you are 100% part of it.

Have you ever watched a reality show and said, “I can do that” or gotten frustrated when the participants missed obvious things? Well this is your opportunity to show what you’ve got.

Up to 12 participants will enter a room, the question is whether they will make it out in the hour. Clues and riddles hidden throughout the room provide the tools to meet your objective. Every room is different and has different stories behind it. You can test your wit and your grace under pressure.

Work as a team and you just might make it, either way it will be the fastest and most intense hour you have ever experienced. As the clock ticks down and the pressure mounts, can you stay calm, can you escape?

Team Building

The Great Room Escape is fantastic for corporate teams and groups. Not only is it a fun and interactive game, it challenges the group’s ability to work together and communicate. Something completely new! Your team will be talking about it for the rest of the year. For groups, special times and prices can be arranged. Call 210-316-4354 for more information.
