We went for both the escape room and the axe throwing. Both were incredible experiences. Mark was so helpful and friendly it immediately put us at ease. We did the Harry Potter themed room which really stuck to the theme and had many hidden Harry Potter gems. It was our first escape room experience and we really enjoyed it. We will definitely be booking again for another room. I would recommend the axe throwing to anyone who has a spare hour. It was incredibly fun and as a couple we enjoyed the competition.

This was our 10th escape room and our first as a married couple (honeymoon trip!).
Mark was a gentleman and recommended prison-break.
It was a quality room and rather tricky. We managed to get out with 20 seconds to spare.
Would highly recommend. Definitely one of our favourites

1st time doing an escape room, we done the Cludo room. We had Mark helping us with clues. So many clues to find and puzzles to solve. Great experience

This was my third visit to an escape room and have to say it was by far the worst of all three.

1. The place stank of mould and was so just so run down. Not suitable for a place of business for customers.

2. The production value of the room was just dreadful. The puzzle itself was OK but it looked like they had slapped it together in the space of about 5 minutes.

3. No official idea of time or leaderboard or anything.

We did one in Mayo the week before which was half the price and just on another level altogether. Really disappointed in this as I'm from Waterford and was expecting so much more based on the price and the reviews.

We had a good laugh and an enjoyable experience all the same but it wasn't because of the room.

Hate to be so negative but the owners need to do much much better.

Myself and 3 friends went to the great escape today to do an escape room. The guy Mark at reception seemed nice and welcoming which was a good start but that unfortunately is where it ends. The escape room comprised of a few rooms and everything in them was run down mouldy and just very badly done. Nothing different in any way bog standard and filthy dirty. Iv been to many escape rooms and this was by far the worst iv seen would not recommend at all unfortunately. The company also offer other activities like axe throwing it also has a pool table but is in need of much repair.

We did the Prison Break escape room and we had a great time doing it! We found it challenging but well worth it, we would definitely go back and do the other escape rooms based off the experience we had with this one room. The staff were excellent, very friendly and they explained things very clearly and kept checking in on us to make sure we were doing okay! Would highly recommend the Prison Break room and The Great Escape to anyone looking for something fun to do in Waterford!
