3 of us decided to tackle the "Prison Break" room
I have to say, we found it challenging and enjoyable, without being ridiculously difficult.
Not very physical but a cool head and analytical minds would be essential!
Shane, who was on duty when we arrived was very helpful and laid back and explained everything that you had to do without spoiling anything in advance
There's plenty of clues and tasks to complete within the hour.
Clues via a walkie talkie can be obtained, although time penalties are given if you avail of a hint or 2.
€20/person was good value for an hours entertainment and I would recommend The Great Escape if you fancy doing something just a little different from the usual touristy stuff!!

Me and a couple friends were traveling to Dublin and we had a few hours to kill waiting for our next train. We stumbled across The Great Escape and I'm very glad we decided to go in. You could tell a lot of thought had gone into the escape room we decided to do and the guy at the front desk was very funny.

Having read some of the reviews on here we decided to book a room whilst visiting family. There was a group of 6 of us did the house of mystery room and we escaped with about 16mins to spare. Now it could be that because 3 of us have done about 6 different escape rooms in England, but we found this room exceedingly easy. There seemed to be too few puzzles to solve and a lot of just finding the keys. There were a lot of red herrings and not enough brain power required to put pieces together to find keys to open other locks. This would be a good first room escape but still needs some development to make it more of a puzzle. The one bit that was puzzling to us was that there was a wrong key in the room - try as we might we could not find a lock that the key would open and we still had one lock left to open...but when we let Mark know, he came in and sorted it for us.

Overall it was a pleasant way to spend an hour in Waterford and hopefully the other rooms will be more challenging.
