About The Great Escape Room

The Great Escape Room is where the family can enjoy something new, and unique, and challenging on your next family day out.

Intrigued? You should be! 

This fun Ohio attraction is a Sherlock style adventure where families and kids over 12 years can participate in traditional escape room fun, mixed in with the challenges of a super fun scavenger hunt. It also means you can spend 60 minutes locked in a room together. Sounds like a blast!

So how does it work?

Well, The Great Escape Room experience actually offers you two different rooms to choose from. From the moment you step into your chosen room, you and your team have 60 minutes to fin clues, crack codes, and solve puzzles in order for you to complete your mission and unlock the door.

Don't worry - you don't need to be an expert, or even have experience and special skills, to be able to participate. You just have to want to have fun, and keep an open mind! It's a great way for kids to work as a team, use those minds, and gain confidence when they complete things they never thought they could!


Within The Great Escape Room in Akron, we mentioned there are two different escape rooms. This means that there is always something great to go back to for your next round (that's because you won't be able to get enough fun!)

Those budding Sherlock style detectives can work toward becoming his next apprentice - pretty cool! All you have to do is solve and unravel real mysteries that Sherlock himself has laid out. If you can solve them, the position is yours! 

If you would rather just save the world from a crazy Professor, all you have to do is find the antidote by solving HIS puzzle, and beating him at his own game before the time runs out!

It's a day with a difference, where kids and adults alike can walk away more confident as everyone works together to crack those codes and unlock the door!

Do you think you can make it out on time? The clock starts....NOW!
