Our Rooms


The Great Escape Room Royal Oak is also a great place to meet new people. In our public rooms, if you do not have a full team of 10, you may be paired with others. This makes for a great opportunity to enter the escape rooms as strangers, but leave as friends. One of our unique offerings are “head to head” room competitions where two teams compete to see who can escape identical rooms in the shortest amount of time. These competitions are fantastic for team building exercises as well as for bigger families who want to have a battle of wits.
