Crate Escape was so fun! It was very unique being inside a crate! And loved the Artic room that we did. They gave enough hints to help move us along. Recommended for 3-4 people.

This was our first escape room & although the aim wasn't to 'escape' but to find lost treasure, it was the same concept & we had lots of fun working out the puzzles together and surprisingly didn't argue too much about it! Definitely recommend it!...More

Tricky, but plenty of clues and help available if you need them. Looking forward to doing the next one already.

I’ve done a number of Escape Rooms and frankly this was one of the best I’ve done. The room was very well set up with well thought out enigmas and challenges! I fully recommend !

There are several escape experiences in Chch and this is the best. Care is taken that the resources clues look like your the first to use them. Fantastic clues

My wife and I did the Antartic room. It was really well set out and had the potential to be challenging, but unfortunately the host was far too quick to give out clues, so we didn't get a chance to work them out for ourselves,...More
