The Fox in a Box Difference

Fox in a Box is unique in Australia in how we run and look after our customers playing the games. In each of our rooms we have 8 cameras, ceiling mounted speakers and hidden microphones. All of this is fed back to our centralised control room where our Game Masters are watching and listening to you play your game

Each game master has two monitors, one which displays all the cameras and the other displays our game software which runs the game. The whole purpose of this is to give you, the customer the best experience possible when playing the game. We can see if you are stuck and provide gentle nudges or hints, if you want them.

Unlike other Escape Rooms we do not give you Walkie Talkies to communicate with you or ask what puzzle you are stuck on or where you are in the room.

How many people can fit in a room?

All our rooms can take between 2 and 6 players and on request some rooms can take 7. However, if you choose Prison Break Head to Head (where you book and play our 2 identical prison rooms together) then up to 12 people can share the same experience. If you book all of our rooms then we can host 60 players at once. Our rooms are also private which means that when you book, only you and your friends are in the room - we don't fill up empty spaces with other guests.

Children, Teens, Parties and Age Limits

Our escape rooms are great for Children and Teens. Each room has a dedicated Game Master who is watching and listening to what is happening within the rooms. We encourage the children to explore, work out the clues and work together as a team but the Games Master can give multiple hints when required to make sure the game keeps progressing. Some rooms are better suited for younger players. We modify the adult versions of Prison Break and Bunker for a younger audience.
Ages 10 and above is recommended, but everyone is welcome to play. Children under 7 play for free. Ages 14 and under require a guardian to be present during arrival and when the game finishes. Please Click Here for more information on Children, Teens and Kids escape rooms and parties.

What is a Room Escape Experience?

Real-life room escape games are a type of live game in which people are together in a room with other participants and have to work together to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and either escape the room, or complete your mission, within a 60 minute time frame.

COVID-19 Safe

In accordance with Safe Work Australia, we have produced a COVID-19 Safe Work Emergency action plan to ensure the health and well-being of our customers and staff and to minimise the risk of potential infections and ensure your safety.

Opening and Game Times

Our hours of operation varies throughout the week and can be seen when you make a booking. When booking you will receive a confirmation booking email which will include details about your game as well as the following information. The games will start at the time stated on the booking, and if you’re not on time, the game will start without you. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the time stated on the booking so that we can do an introduction. We also have a great reception / break out area, with toilets and refreshments, where you can relax and get ready before your game starts . A game takes a maximum of 60 minutes and the entire visit takes a maximum of 90 minutes. After your game you are welcome to stay and reflect on your experience.

Do you serve Alcohol and Soft drinks?

We have a licence to sell alcohol and small snacks. We offer a range of wines (Shiraz, White and Rose), Sombersby Apple and also Pear Cider, Brookvale Union Ginger Beer and bottled beer (Asahi, Stone & Wood, 150 Lashes, Great Northern). Alcoholic drinks are priced at $7 to $8. We also offer a range of soft drink cans (Coke, Coke Zero, Red Bull, Lemonade and Solo) as well as Frantelle bottled water. Non alcoholic drinks are $3. Our snacks (chocolate bars) vary from time to time and cost $2.50 to $3.00

We request that you arrive more than 15 minutes before your game if purchasing alcohol or soft drinks to ensure that you have sufficient time to finish your drink in comfort and relax before your game starts. We cannot serve alcohol within 10 minutes of your game starting.

Team Building and Corporate Activities

A Room Escape experience is an excellent choice for corporate team building. Your teams will have to work together, use logic and creativity to overcome problems. It is the ultimate team building event. With prior arrangement, if you have an HR department, someone from it can sit with our game masters and observe the game which gives insights into team dynamics. With our 10 rooms we can cater for 60 people per game for one time slot. See our Team Building web page for more details including corporate packages, catering and drinks.

Gift Vouchers

A Fox in a Box Gift Voucher is a perfect ideal gift.

Accessibility and Special Requirements

Our rooms are suitable for wheelchair users but please call us as some of our rooms such as Prison Break, Bunker and in certain instances Zombie Lab are more suited than others. People with disabilities may fully enjoy our games. Pregnant women may also enjoy our games as they are not physically challenging and there are no fear factors involved (it's all in the mind as they say !) Also, there are seats in all rooms if a team member needs to rest for a while. Please call us to check the requirements if you are unsure.

Cancelling, Rescheduling and Refunds

When paying for the experience, we do not make any refunds. Up until 24 hours of your game, you can chose to reschedule your game, we will then send you a voucher worth the amount of the game, so you can make a reschedule yourself at a time which is more convenient. If you cannot attend your game due to COVID-19 related issues then we will also supply you with a voucher to reschedule your game at a later date. Please contact us if you have a reservation using a gift card or voucher and you wish to reschedule.
