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 escape the room within a 60 minute time frame.

How many escape room games do you have?

We are the largest and most immersive Escape Room company in Brisbane and we have 6 rooms: 2 Prison Break rooms, Cold War Bunker, Zombie Lab, Tesla's Mystery and Zodiac Killer. Each escape room can take between 2 and 6 players (4 is a good number) and we can host up to 36 players at once. Our escape 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.

Team Sizes

Our escape rooms are made to fit groups up to 6 players. Minimum is 2 players. It is not recommended to have more than 6 players in the rooms, because it may get a bit crowded and your experience may be lessened by it. However if you have any special requests for numbers greater than 6 please contact us. If you need to make a reservation for more than 6 people, you can use the Multiple Booking option and book any number of rooms at once. This makes the reservation process for more than one room much easier and faster. If you book all rooms together we can accommodate a party of 36 people. We also have 2 identical Prison Break rooms which you can book as "Prison Break Head to Head". In this instance we can have a maximum of up to 12 people in two identical prisons racing against each other to see which team can escape first. Its great for large groups young and old.

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 as and when required to make sure the game keeps progressing. Some rooms are better suited for younger players. Prison Break and Bunker are great rooms for a younger audience.
Please call and let us know if you are booking the game for Children or a Teens party as we can include some special features to make the games even better.
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 but the guardian does not have to partake in the game.

Team Building

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. 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 6 rooms we can cater for 36 people per game for one time slot. If you’re a larger group, we will soon have a perfect portable solution for you - The Final Exam. This is our portable escape room; we bring the fun to your office, conference room or event! We will transport the room/s to any location in Brisbane, and provide staff to set up and run the games. The experience can be tweaked to suit your needs and we can run up to 4 games simultaneously, with a maximum of 6 people per team. Teams will need to solve a variety of puzzles and disarm the bomb before time runs out! Build on your communication and teamwork skills to see who can get the fastest time of the day.

Our rooms are suitable for wheelchair users but please call us, as some of our rooms (Cold War Bunker and 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.
