Friendly staff & professional looking room. My teenage daughter and Her friends had so much fun. Hope they can add more game rooms so we can come back for more escape adventures.

I have done both Bank Robbery and Pirates. Puzzles are underclued, poor quality of props and puzzles in general. Staff was nice, but could not make up for sub-par rooms. Don't waste your time, there are lots of better rooms in Sydney. P.S. This place...More

With all due respect, this room was just terrible. Inconsistent is how I would define it. First red flag was when the staff took us to the room to explain the rules. From laser with bad batteries to staff going into the room himself to...More

We completed the lost pirate souls room. From the beginning we were underwhelmed. Most of the puzzles did not fill well with the theme and a very boring first room ruined the entire experience. This room is "hard" because the game designer obviously didn't actually...More

This is great fun for friends and family (minimum of 4 people), as well as for some team bonding in an evening. A series of fun puzzles and lateral thinking helps you progress from room to room and eventually to escape the "locked" room. Really...More

Booked the venue with work for our xmas activity. The whole team had a blast and raved on about it all night! Abhi, the manager looked after us and made sure the day was smooth. The rooms were challenging, fun and interesting. Highly recommended!

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
