    A must do
    We absolutely loved this experience. It felt like we were actually involved in a heist as the props were so good and the Game Master Lucas really got us into character. Will definitely be back to try another room

    Fantastic Escape Room experience
    This was the first visit to an escape room for my husband and myself however our adult daughter who was with us has been to several. We could not have picked a better place for our first experience. Imogen, our game master was fantastic and made our visit very enjoyable. Our daughter rates Fox in a Box up there with her favourite escape room. We did the Prison Break escape and spent the beginning feeling like we were quite dumb and missing something but we quickly got into solving what we had to and managed to get out with 1 minute to spare. What an experience. We were so impressed we booked to come back another time in the future.

    Thrilling Escape Room Adventure
    Our escape room experience was incredible, thanks to our game master, Aiden. His enthusiasm, clear explanations, and timely hints made the adventure even more enjoyable. The puzzles were challenging but solvable, keeping us engaged throughout. Aiden's commitment to creating a memorable experience was evident, and I can't wait to return for more adventures with him as our game master!

    Zombie Lab - A Good Challenge
    My family of four managed to conquer the Zombie Lab Esacape Room this afternoon with 1.24 minutes to spare! So much fun. Our game host Aidan was terrific & really got into the spirit of the game with his in-character scenario set up at the start of the game. He was also very helpful when we got stuck a few of times with some tricky props. The room itself could probably have been done up a little better. We found it a bit lacking in character & ambiance when compared with the other escape rooms we've done there (almost as if the room was rushed to be completed quickly). Having said that, we all had fun & it was still a great challenge that really got us thinking. If you love chemistry, this is the room for you! But if you're like me (& hated every second of it it in high school) you'll still manage just fine. A fun experience. Probably not great for the really young kids, due to all the gory props, but for the older kids & teens, no problem. Recommend.

    Great family fun
    We really enjoyed our time in the challenge rooms, and even got a high score! The whole family enjoyed it. Not 5 stars just because they need to cool the rooms down. Too hot in them and in the foyer for such physical games. Ps. Great flooring in there 😜

    Family fun
    We loved our experience at fox in a box Surfers. Our game master, Jess was very much in character to set the scene for prison break. This was our first time doing an escape room as a family and we had a lot of fun together!! Highly recommend this venue for the total escape room experience😊

    Best experience
    Millie was an amazing host/leader for the Wild West escape room. She was cheerful and welcoming in the first encountered and was helpful throughout the whole session. Would definitely recommend going to this escape room and I recommend having mollie as your host/leader.

    Fox In A Box Gold Coast Escape Room - Wild West , yee ha
    Fox In A Box Gold Coast Escape Room - Wild West is a great fun team experience to challenge yourselves with over 20 exercies to beat the 60 minute clock! The rooms as you will know have many clues, some errant in attempting your escape. All exercises are hands on and call for team work. Most of the locking mechanisms to release the next clues worked well, the wagon wheel was a bit touchy to get it precise. A pen and a note pad might come in handy to transcribe the codes. Best part is managing the chickens!

    ZODIAC is the best one
    This was by far the most scary thing we have ever done. The Zodiac was by far the scariest one with jump scares and plot twists you never would have thought. The clues were so smart and the whole experience literally leaves you breathless and your heart pumping. I have quite seriously never been more scared in my life. Jake was unreal as the game master and he was so funny and put up with us literally crying. The only thing that could make it better is finding out if you can video your reactions because it’s a thing you want to remember.

(Our group is 2 parents 3 teens.)

Our first experience at Fox in a Box Gold Coast was terrific. There was a spacious and comfortable area to wait in until our game master was ready to go through the pre-game information and then lead us into our escape room.

We did the Wild West Saloon room and found the puzzles to be a mix of padlocks and mechanical triggers, (our group is happy with either type of puzzle). The theme was fun and very well incorporated throughout the room and puzzles. The finale was different and unexpected and a humorous and thematic way to end the experience.

As a little bit of criticism - at one point we had correctly solved a puzzle but the reward compartment failed to open, although our game master aided us and quickly got us going again. At this point in time, I would absolutely give Fox in a Box the benefit of doubt that their maintenance team would keep on top of such issues though.

A special mention to our game master MJ, who was very personable and clear with her instructions. She did a wonderful job with a little bit of cosplay and ‘Wild West’ dialogue to set up the scenario in the room for us and immerse us into the theme.

Overall we had a very positive experience and will be seeking to come back to Fox in a Box next time we visit the Gold Coast.

Great fun. We did the Prison Break escape room. Good setup and created a cool atmosphere. Our game master was Jackson, he was great; very friendly and enthusiastic. Loved how he dressed up in theme when taking us in as well, helped create a bit of immersion.
Really good experience and a lot of fun for our first Fox in a Box experience.
Highly recommend, and will definitely plan a visit again in the future.

We played the Prison Break: Head to Head and it was a lot of fun competing against family in the other room! Our team of five raced against a team of six and we were able to beat the clock as well as the other team. Retrospectively, it's really important to listen to instructions from the waiting room, right through to the point we're locked in the escape room! The experience was fantastic as it really did take us a while to get going. As a head-to-head challenge, the only let down was the very end, where as winners we waited for the other team to be let out, only to be left alone in the waiting area to congratulate ourselves. A bit meh coming down from a winning high. We all had fun celebrating in our own way afterwards anyway!

We did the Wild West Saloon room and it is a fantastic room with decor/SFX that fully immerses you in the experience.
Ben our Gamemaster was also fully in character the entire time he was great.
There was a good mix of layered puzzles and simple to solve puzzles.
I enjoyed the few wow factor moments and bit of physicality that came with solving puzzles.
My only criticism is that the clue system of being passed through the door pictures of the props needed to solve the next part of the room was a bit redundant and we found it more immersive and helpful having Ben chime in over the speaker system. Most of the time we were passed photos of exactly what puzzle we were looking at and what elements we were already trying to solve. We needed a more customised nudge in the right direction.
But overall the cleanliness and appeasing lobby and great room made for an enjoyable experience that will make me come back for more. I’ve been to Fox in a Box in Miami too so will look out for more locations in my travels.

Great assistance, hosts in character, room was spacious and great storyline to the escape room. We were given great level of hints as it was just me and my 8 year old son playing so they adjusted for us.

My only feedback would be the reception area looks like an office and is not really themed at all. Be good to change it & make darker so it’s more immersive from the very start.

Absolutely amazing! The staff are so wonderful and helpful and make the experience so exciting. We did the new Zombie escape room with our game master Ryan, who was absolutely wonderful. Can’t speak more highly of Fox in a box escape rooms, very much looking forward to escaping more rooms 🦊

Zodiac killer was insane in all the best ways. It was scary, intense, immersive and puzzling. I would 100% recommend everyone to try it if you're looking for a thrill. Also shout out to the best game master Aiden, his acting skills were amazing
