First time my friend and I had ever done an escape room, so we can’t compare Enigma-Memorium to others, but we had an awesome time. Lots of puzzles, good difficulty level (glad we got hints tho!) and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Can’t...More

Been to a couple of escape rooms in different countries and I have to say that this is one of the better ones. Puzzles are complex but solvable. I love how hints are still ‘puzzly’ and not ‘give-aways.’ The rooms are large. Truly fun and...More

This was my first escape room experience and it didn’t disappoint. The hosts are lovely and we had a great GM who stepped in and gave us hints just when we needed. We played In Memoriam - the story is great and they also give...More

The escape room was fun and challenged us! Good for groups small or large. Would definitely suit experienced escape room players and also first time players. Highly recommend

Loved the In Memoriam room. Nice lateral thinking challenges, loved some of the tricky bits right near the end. Definitely recommend this room to Escape Room lovers

We have done a few escape rooms now. This one had some unique things in it that we had never done before! We played it on normal mode - they gave us clues as we went - probably because we were too slow. If you've...More

Lots of challenges and clues. Trying to escape from more than one room. Great team activity. You really need to think outside the square.

Tried Dr Disaster with two people. It was very fun, lots of moments where we needed to try and see the obvious instead of looking too hard. The host was lovely and we would certainly come back and complete the second room.

My partner and I have done a fair amount of escape rooms before. We played In Memoriam on the weekend. The room itself was enjoyable and definitely different to what we've done in the past, however: - We had the most unenthusiastic game master. I...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
