‘Great Escape Room’ game chain opening in Olympic Towers

Another escape room game company is coming to Western New York next month.

The Great Escape Room, an entertainment chain that originated in Florida, will open a location in the Olympic Towers building at 300 Pearl St., Suite 125. It will consist of two interactive escape rooms that can accommodate up to 12 people each. It also will host birthday parties.

Teams have 60 minutes to find clues in the room, solve puzzles and escape. Less than a quarter of participants find their way out within the allotted time, according to the company.

It has other locations in Rochester as well as in Florida, Michigan and Washington D.C.

The games are aimed at teens and adults, and are often used for corporate team building.

The Great Escape Room will join Lock & Key Escape Room on Elmwood Avenue, Trapped on Sheridan Drive in the Town of Tonawanda, Perplexity Escape Room on Main Street in Williamsville and Escape Room Buffalo on Oliver Street in North Tonawanda.
