Overview

Great Escape is a fun and simple, yet challenging REAL LIFE ESCAPE GAME. Your team of 3 to 6 are locked in a themed room. You have 1 hour to escape using nothing but your wits and intellect, creativity and common sense! It's all about the buzz of solving clues and puzzles. Why go to the movies when you can be more than a passive bystander in your own entertainment.

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.

Had a great welcome from Sye who was really friendly and informative, gave us all the low down before we started which was great as I had no idea what to expect. Had the most awesome time would definitely go back and try another room...More

Unfortunately it is a lease issue. We are in an old building which we can't alter therefore we can't add any facilities. I understand where you coming from but our hands are tied.

We did Prison Break and our 10yr old girl freaked out at the start and we had to let her out. The staff kindly looked after her and let her watch us on the monitor. I think she would have been OK in "Alice" but we didn't... More
