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!

Doing the same escape room twice

Can I do the same room again? First of all, I want to be clear that we don’t recommend it. Even if the first time you didn’t succeed in your mission, you’ve still found many (or even most) of the clues. So it might sound like a fun idea to come again and succeed for...

What’s the Success Rate?

At Save Milwaukee Escape Room we don’t post a success rate or keep a leader board because that would detract from our primary focus- making sure each group is engaged and has fun.
