Overview

Great Escape Mystery Rooms offers a fun, entertaining, and engaging escape room adventure, located in Historic Downtown Van Buren. The rooms are designed to intrigue and bring out the inner detective in all of us. Bring your friends, family, or co-workers in for an exciting challenge. While in the room your goal is to find clues and solve puzzles that will enable you to conquer the room and stop the clock, hopefully with a record time. You will have 60 minutes to see if you have what it takes to solve our rooms.

We had lots of fun doing the mystery room. We have done a few and the jail break was the best! A little expensive.

This was incredible. We had 2 groups doing separate rooms at the same time. It was a race to see who could escape first. The kids had a blast. They made it such a good experience for the party.
