Amazing, Challenging and FUN! We had a small group from work that did this for part of our holiday party, can't say enough about it. You can't lose going to this place, it is as advertised...fun and a team building experience. It's an intense hour, we did Area 51. I would highly recommend, we will be going back again!Kim B12/12/2019

Keep coming back The great escape of La Crosse on 4th st is a fantastic escape room. I always feel challenged in the rooms and never feel like it's an easy escape. My favorite room so far is the area 51 room! It isn't a linear challenge, but a multilayered puzzle that takes a great team to escape. I know I'll keep coming back. The owner is fantastic and an involved individual in the community. His axe throwing bar down the street is a must visit after an hour locked up in a room!Bert M1/15/2019
Great time with our teenage boys We had a fantastic time and did the Area 51 room with our teenage boys- it was a great family bonding time. The felt like it flee by because we were having g so much fun. Our hostess Paige did a great job of gently "nudging" us a time or two when needed which made it so great and we made it out just in time. Will definitely do another room sometime. The axe throwing across the street was fun also and was a good package deal.W6613CKdaniellej4/23/2021

Awesome time! My husband and I took our college aged kids and had a great time. We didn’t know what to expect and when it was over we wanted to try another room immediately. We will make this an annual night out when the kids are home from school.Erikbridge3/18/2019

Lots of fun! It was an awesome time! Made it out of the room (Area 51) with one minute left! We will be back again!rebeccalM2620HN2/16/2020
Great for Large Groups We had a large group (25 people) and they made it work perfectly. We split into the different rooms so no one was crowded, and everyone enjoyed their time. The staff was more than accommodating and everyone was able to escape just in time. I'd highly recommend them for any large group training with staff or friends!dbrookez12/11/2018
Great time my group had a great time. it was a great way to find out how others thoughts process. Definitely need to be observant and willing to follow the directions of the hints otherwise it will delay your process.Stacey S2/13/2019
So much fun We had so much fun. I have done three rooms now and each one is different. If your looking for an activity to get together with family or friends then I highly recommend The great escape. Fun for everyone. Staff was great, place was great. Everything was great.kristink7431/05/2020
Team Bonding I organized a team bonding night for work. The employees worked with our schedule and made the whole process very easy. We did the Tunnels Beneath room and it was fantastic. It was intricate and interesting and held the attention of our whole adult group for the full hour. Will definitely be using this place again.jamesD4744XV11/07/2019
Excellent Family Fun This was our second time we booked an escape room with The Great Escape of La Crosse. It was total family entertainment and an absolute blast. We have experienced both the Lost Relic and Mad Hatter. Both were excellent.
We immediately booked a second visit for the following weekend. The staff is wonderful and very professional. Can’t wait to return.scubaw12/29/2018
Family Christmas Present I took my kids and their significant others to the Great Escape for christmas instead of exchanging gifts. This was an amazing time and I would for sure do it again. It was way better than exchanging gifts.Christine M7/02/2019
Great clues, great people! We had a BLAST! 4 people who had never done an Escape room and 3 "veterans" all were pushed to the limit and cooperated in the event. The staff are fun and funny, helpful but not too much :); lots of free nearby parking, easy to locate, clean and good website.Cheri O12/25/2018
