The Great Escape Reviews

  • We went to The Great Escape in Waterfotd today for my sons birthday. We booked the Harry Potter room ahead of time and Marc the owner was so helpful with the booking. We enjoyed the one hour experience. It was more difficult than we thought it would be but we had fun trying to work out the clues . Marc was contactable by walkie talkie so we could get help when we were confused. We made it out after a frantic last minute scramble for the last clue. It’s based in an old building and you need to go up lots of steps to reach the HP rooms. We were a group o 7 adults. You wouldn’t want more than that amount of people for that particular room as it could feel crowded. We loved our experience and Marc was so helpful and nice yo interact with .

  • Incredible fun for our team. We had a party of 20 which we split into four groups of five to try different rooms. Every single group enjoyed the challenges and the teamwork involved. Expect a nice variety of puzzles and also different levels of complexity for the different rooms. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, without being overbearing or hinting too much. The building is old in an alluring way that lends itself to the escape concept. If we had time on this trip everyone agreed we'd love to come back and rotate rooms. Highly recommended!

  • Great experience. 2 of us did prison break and really enjoyed it, clever puzzles and lots of different spaces! Our game master, Mark, was great at checking in and helping out with a couple of hints here and there when we asked - even though he seemed to be manning the place on his own at the time! We even got to try a bit of axe throwing on the way out (who knew?!). Highly recommended.
