A must do if you're in San Diego. We all had a great time and a blast trying to solve the case and set free Houdini. We will definitely be back for the other rooms.

This was different and a lot of fun! It took us awhile to find it as the address is a bit misplaced on Market St. Don't trust the address numbering system on this block :/ Anyway, it was fun from the minute we entered Houdini's...More

Visited the Great Room Escape as a team building event. First-time escape room participant and was skeptical of the event's value. The Great Room Escape greatly exceeded my expectations: well-organized; friendly staff; detail-oriented; definite team building and positive experience. Our team completed the Indiana Jones-like...More

4 of us did the Aztec Temple Escape Room (my Fiance, brother, brother-in-law & I) on a Saturday night in February. It was a very disappointing/frustrating experience, because although the design/props/layout of the Escape Room itself were fantastic, the game itself was pretty much wrecked...More

The whole experience is cheesy. The event is in the basement of a ratty building. The entryway is dingy, and the labyrinth of hallways to the rest rooms are depressing and makes you wonder if the wiring is safe. Then you get to the waiting...More
