Using your observational skills, problem solving ability, street smarts and common sense, you need to decipher a set of clues and puzzles as you and your team race to find the answers and escape - in 60 minutes. Located in the heart of the CBD, Escapade is an exciting and totally different New Zealand experience, with five completely unique Kiwi culture-inspired rooms to choose from. Bookings are highly recommended, so please feel free to visit our website to check out our escape rooms and making a booking.

We went as the end of day activity. The staff were so friendly and laid back. The room we did had inventive and challenging puzzles. If you need help, just radio. It is well worth it for a family group.

If you love puzzles of any sort this is you. It is challenging and they provide worthwhile evaluations on personality types and how to manage them. Its a great time, with great people, lots of laughs.More

We did the “Bach” escape game for my husband’s birthday. We were a little apprehensive about it, first escape game and what it would be like, but it was great fun. Some of it was frustrating as we knew we should know the answer but...More

We really enjoyed escaping the tavern. Some of our group have done other escape rooms with other providers and this was one of our favourites. The props were cool, it was challenging but doable and the variety of challenges was really awesome.More

Hi there, Our games take between 2 and 6 people in each room. So you need one other person to play. Cheers.
