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!

"Awesome experience! Our 5-people team had so much fun last night trying to escape the Mad Hatter room. The staff has been very friendly and helpful particularly when we got stuck on a crucial point and we asked for hints. We'll definitely try all of the other rooms as soon as possible!"

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.

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.

Each room is decorated to a particular theme. There is no scaring or people jumping out at you.
Can I play if I am pregnant or have a disability?
Yes, there is nothing in the rooms that will put you in any danger. We also have a lift for disabled access or prams.
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.
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.
