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 utilizing 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!
