Have done escape rooms at about 8 different places, and unfortunately the two that I did here on seperate occasions were definitely in the bottom 3. First we did Dreams of Alice, the room itself was great. However, they accidentally left the master key in...More

We've been to 3 different escape rooms in Auckland and this is by far the best. Clean, clear puzzles with hints given appropriately if required.

We had a team building event here and we had a ball. I have done a similar event in Wellington and it wasnt as well put together. The multi room aspect was great. We did the Alice in Wonderland themed room which was very clever.
