Amazing historical-theatrical escape room games! Our first two games, 'Rescue the White Rose' and 'Sabotage the Enigma' are based on the history of the underground resistance group the White Rose, active in Germany in 1942-3.

My 12yr old daughter did White Rose with her friends. They had an amazing time. The staff were exceptional. They helped them through and ensured they walked away with a great experience.

I’ve done a number of escape rooms around Australia and thought Sabotage the Enigma was one of the most enjoyable!
