Save Milwaukee

Escape Rooms

All Private bookings: Your group has the room all to yourselves.

Milwaukee’s #1 Escape Room. 60 minutes to solve puzzles, riddles and clues.

Milwaukee’s Premier Escape Room Experience!

Save Milwaukee is different from other escape rooms. Our rooms are large, allowing us to accommodate even big groups and still make sure everyone has plenty of space. Our missions are completely immersive- you receive a briefing via email then enter on your own. And we’re local, not a franchise- both of our rooms are original and themed for you to have 60 minutes to solve puzzles, riddles, and clues to save Milwaukee from doom!

What a Blast

What a fun experience, even if we couldn’t save Milwaukee :-). Highly recommend this unique adventure for everyone of all ages.

Had a GREAT time

We had a team building get together for work and had a fantastic time. We didn’t Save Milwaukee but sure had fun trying. Shlomo is awesome!!

Would HIGHLY recommend

I went to Save Milwaukee with my family and had a fabulous time. It was thrilling, engaging and overall very very well done. We had a fantastic time together and would highly recommend Save Milwaukee to anyone looking for a great night out.

This stressed me Out

I mean, towards the end I could feel my blood pressure rising and my heart racing and my face getting more and more red. But wow – was it ever fun! And we won! We had six people and I don’t know it can be done with less, but I’m sure the game is somehow tweaked. Highly recommend!!

Great Time

I went with some coworkers and we had a great time! It was challenging! A word to the wise- be mindful of every moment you and your team is in the room. Come with really good hearing! This is a wonderfully complex escape room. We loved it and will be back!

What Makes Save Milwaukee Different?

At Save Milwaukee, you are given a mission to complete, not tasked with escaping a locked room. Our clues are intriguing, fun, and designed to require teamwork. Never grim and gory. At Save Milwaukee, we never put you with strangers- no matter how many agents your group has the room all to yourselves.


You’ll have to work together to accomplish your mission! Great for a date, party, or fun night out!


You”ll be surrounded by riddles, puzzles, and clues. Maybe even a secret doorway or hidden panel


An exciting, interactive experience. You”ll be immersed in your mission for 60 minutes. Forget about the outside world!

Where’s the Leaderboard?

Sometimes people ask ‘what’s the record time for the Device? Or a related question, ‘What’s the win percentage at McSnooty’s?’. In fact, many escape room businesses do keep leaderboards on which they prominently display fastest times for finishing their rooms. And...
