The Great Escape Room Review
Are you ready for the Great Escape Room Review? This experience is like no other. If you’ve never been to the Great Escape Room you sure are in for a treat! It will take you on an adventure looking for clues around the room. The crazy part is you have to finish all of the puzzles in the room within 60 minutes in order to escape! Eek! Stick around and find out if we made it out before our time was up!
Sherlock’s Library Room
This was our first time going to an Escape Room. We were unsure what to expect. In our group, we had four adults and two children. I highly recommend the kids be at least 12 because the clues can be difficult. Younger kids may get bored. This was the perfect age for both kids in our group because they were awesome at helping to find the clues. Also, included in the room was our host, Dr. Watson A.K.A our host Kasey. I do want to mention that Kasey was very knowledgeable and friendly during the entire experience.
We got to be placed in the Sherlock’s Library Room. Wow! Is that a cool room or what? It’s crazy too because after our group was all inside. The door was closed and the room was locked. I got a little nervous when the clock started ticking!
Locked In At The Lakes Escape Room Akron, Ohio
After the clock started ticking. We all scattered around the locked room trying to find clues to solve the mystery puzzles. Something that stood out for me was seeing how well our team worked together. I loved that! I wasn’t sure how difficult it would be for my twelve-year-old daughter but both kids did an amazing job! I think they found more clues than me! 😛
Looking for the Clues
When you’re looking for clues be sure to check everywhere. I mean literally, everywhere. The clues can be anywhere. That is the fun part! Here is a picture of my husband checking the bear’s nose for clues. Do you think he found a clue in there? You’ll have to go to the Escape Room in downtown Akron to find out!
The conclusion of the Great Escape Room Review
This entire experience from the beginning to the end of the Great Escape Room was a ton of fun. We got to enjoy our adventure on Friday the 13th. My daughter and I both thought that was really cool.
I am also happy to report that our group successfully made it through Sherlock’s Library Room in 51 minutes and 42 seconds. Do you think you could beat that time?! Give it a try! Don’t miss this incredible opportunity with family and friends at The Great Escape Room in Akron, Ohio.

We love doing escape rooms! We got to do a Voodoo Room here in New Orleans and another Mayan Ruins room in downtown San Diego. They are soo much fun! I love finding the clues and these companies go above and beyond when it comes to decorations and the hidden secrets.
I think Darcee would love to do the Sherlock Holmes room. That one looks really cool!
I agree! This company puts a lot of time and energy into creating such a wonderful experience. I’m eager to try more. Thanks for letting me know about the Voodoo Room in New Orleans and the Mayan Ruins room in San Diego. We will have to add those to our travel list! Thanks for stopping in.

Sounds like so much fun! I haven’t been to a Escape Room yet but they’ve become so popular recently it won’t be long before we go to one.
I do highly recommend checking out the Escape Room. It is a ton of fun and something out of the ordinary to do with family or friends. 🙂

We have a Great Escape Room very close to where we live but we have never been there. Your review sounds like this place is a great way to spend the weekend with family. Definitely, checking it out this weekend.
I love this!! I’ve always wanted to experience an escape room, and this Sherlock themed room is right up my alley! I cannot wait to try an escape room. There are many in my city. Fun!
