Friend and I played through the "Pilfered Playbook" escape room while we were visiting the Lake Geneva area for the day. My friend had never done an escape room before, so we were excited to try out the Lake Geneva Clue Room. Choose the "Pilfered Playbook" room option, since it was supposed to be less difficult than some of the other room options.

We did pretty well overall, but we didn't finish the last couple items to escape in time. Puzzles had a nice variety of types and challenges. Some of the puzzles/clues were pretty clever as well. A couple were a bit of a stretch to figure out, but the staff were good about periodically giving clues to help guide us in the right direction. Not the most intuitive of escapes rooms that I've personally played through, but I did enjoy the theme and concepts that they used.

Room was clean and pretty well maintained. There were a couple of technical issues with items and/or locks that caused us some trouble, but these were fairly minor things. Overall, I would recommend this location to others, and we would likely come back again to try one of the other rooms if we're in the Lake Geneva area again.

My husband and I did the gangster’s paradise room which was the hardest room and it was hard!! We did not escape! We were close, probably could have done it in another 10 minutes or so. It was a lot of fun, highly recommend doing this!!

I took my 10-year old daughter with her 11 and 12-year-old friends. We had a great time. It was very difficult and we would not get very far without the clues from the staff, but we all had fun and the kids wanted to do it again, right away. We will definitely be back

That is great to hear. Our game masters are excellent at reading the room and giving clues when needed. The best thing about the clues are that the people in the room still have to solve the puzzle. I love that your daughter and her friends are between 10 and 12 which shows the wide range of ages that enjoy escape rooms. We look forward to having them back.

First time ever doing an escape room.

I wasn’t looking forward to this but it turned out fun. We got an hour to solve 2 rooms so that’s about right. Not too long that you get bored or frustrated. Not too short to where you can’t solve the “puzzles.”

Very professional staff. They were friendly and helpful.

I like the clues they give when you get stuck.

Lots of things to solve in each room. You need to be super creative and imaginative when going through the rooms.

I’d recommend this place when going to Lake Geneva. Good way to spend an hour or so.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. We get a lot of people who have never done an escape room and are skeptical at first. Usually someone who loves doing them drags the newbie along. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Watch out--they are addictive!

My husband and I were first time at an escape room! We did the Double Agent Room. The Guide/Instructor was so very helpful, and make it a lot of fun!! It was harder than I thought it would be, but we were determined to get to the end. We did, but not in the 60 minute allowed time. This was a great experience--so glad we tried it!

You must stop into the Lake Geneva clue Room when you're up and Lake Geneva Wisconsin. The staff is great. What a fun experience either with your family or in our case it was a team building for our executives. They were mind twisters and not easy but it really pulled everybody together to try to figure it out. We had a lot of fun and I highly recommend it for your family or your company.

Our group of 25 went to Lake Geneva to celebrate a 10th wedding anniversary. The Clue Room booked us 3 different rooms and each group competed to see who could get out first in the one hour time slot. The activity took team work, communication and lots of patience. We were able to get the password and unlock the door with 1:43 seconds to spare. Our team won!! Members of our group aged from 19 to 62 years old, every one participated, had a lot of fun working together as well as competing against others in our group.Would definitely do this again.

Took my family to the escape room. ages 69 - 9 years young. Everyone had a ball trying to find and solve the clues.
Was a bit tense due to the time restraint. Loved it!! I never knew my fam was so smart.
