WHAT IS AN ESCAPE ROOM?
Escape rooms are real-life games whereby you and your team will be placed in a themed room of your choice. In order to ‘escape’, you are required to go through the process of problem-solving and elimination and crack a series of puzzles as well as logical mind games while utilising a wide array of technology to decipher codes and locks, all the while racing against the clock! Escape Rooms New Zealand is a game that is suited for everyone – the hawk-eyed observer, the intellectual, the motivated enthusiasts and the quick thinkers. Gather your best bunch of friends, your date, family or colleagues and work as a team to escape before your time is up!

How long in advance can we book?You can book 6 months in advance. It is especially a good idea if you are planning this for a big group, such as your Xmas corporate event.
Can I cancel or reschedule after I have booked?You can change or cancel a booking up to 24 hours before your scheduled time slot with a full refund. Any cancellations within 24 hours of the booked time will not receive a refund.
Do we get the room for ourselves or will there be other people?The puzzles in our rooms are challenging enough, and we dont want to up the challenge by teaming you up with strangers. So all bookings with us are private sessions and your team will have the room to yourself.
Will we really be locked in the room?No. You will not be physically locked in a room. If you have to get out in case of an emergency you can open the door. However if you open the door for any other reason, your time will stop and the game will be over.
Is it suitable for Children ?Whilst we have had all ages through all our rooms and have enjoyed the experience, however only you as a parent will know if your child is likely to be scared by any particular room themes. Generally, we would not recommend to bring children of age 6 or under to any escape room at all. Children of all ages are welcome in all of the rooms. All children under 16 years of Age should be accompanied by a paying adult participant. All children under 7 are free of charge
Is there an age limit?Anyone can play! Kids under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult participant. The Doll room is not recommended for kids under 13.
How early should we arrive for our game?You will need to arrive at least 15 minutes before your start time, allowing sufficient time for us to brief your team before your game starts.
What happens if I am late?That’s ok but you may not have the full 90 minutes to escape from your room if there is another booking after you.
Where can I park?There is plenty of public carparks close to us. Wilson Car Park - 1min walk 11 Auburn Street, Takapuna, Auckland 0622 Tournament Parking Como Street Carpark - 2min walk 2 Como Street, Takapuna, Auckland 0622 AT Huron Street Parking - 3min walk 12 Huron Street, Takapuna, Auckland 0622 Toka Puia Car Park - 4min walk 15 Northcroft Street, Takapuna, Auckland 0622
What should we bring with us?Good attitude, open mind and an empty bladder.
How long do we need?Allow 1 hour 45 minutes for each experience.
What happens if we don’t escape in time?That’s ok. You will still have loads of fun trying! And if you wish, the game master will walk you through the remaining puzzles.
Are there different levels of difficulty?Each room is very different using different technology and puzzles. Therefore the level of difficulty does not change, the rooms do. Try them all.
Can I play another game straight after?Yes, while your brain is thinking at high speed, why not do another!
What happens if we get stuck on a puzzle?Each room will have a way to communicate to the control room so that you can ask for a clue. Your clues will guide you but will not tell you how to solve them.
Are the rooms different?Each room has a very different theme with different puzzles and technology. No two rooms are alike…so you should try them all!
Do we need to speak English?A basic understanding of the English language would help.
Can I store my belongings somewhere while I play?There are secure lockers that you can put your belongings. No cell phones are allowed into the room so they will definitely be locked away for an hour.
Is it scary?Each room is decorated to a particular theme. The different elements of the room depends in its theme. The 'DOLL ROOM' is not recommended for anyone under 13 yrs of age and parents discretion is advised for kids under 16 yrs of age for this particular theme.
Can I play if I am pregnant or have a disability?Participant discretion is advised for any scary themes. Otherwise all rooms can be played. Unfortunately the only way up into our premises is via a staircase - if you can make it up the stairs, you can play!
I have claustrophobia- Can I still play?You are not actually locked in the room so if you really need to get out you can.
Do you do private bookings or functions?Definitely yes. Talk to us about what you need and we will accommodate.
