    So fun!
    We had so much fun. My sister and I did Cottage Capers with her young daughters (4 and 5yrs olds) and I was surprised how well it interested them and how much they participated. We laughed a lot, we were probably too loud :) Mia was great at engaging the kids so they knew what to do
    Hi Carolyn, thank you so much for the 5 star review! Definitely not too loud, we love it when our guests have such a great time! We're glad we could provide a fantastic experience for the whole family - we look forward to having you back soon!

    The Pirate Ship Revenge
    Thanks to Beth for a fantastic and enthusiastic introduction! The escape room was really well laid out and the clues were awesome. We loved the theme and had a blast dressing up like pirates. Would definitely go back for another room someday!
    Hey, thank you for the awesome review. We're so glad to know you enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish. Your teams enthusiasm dressing as pirates is exactly what we love to see and we're really looking forward to see you back here for another game :)

    Beth's THE BEST!
    Beth was such an amazing games master. When we met her at the front she chatted with us so friendly and helpful. Great stories! But what is most impressive is how she took on a different persona obce she started telling the story, got us right into it. And had fun taking pictures at the end. She made the experience. The escape room was the perfect combination of well themed, fun and challenging.
    Hey Louise, thank you for the phenomenal review! We try very hard to deliver this standard everyday and we love getting this kind of positive feedback. We're very happy to know you enjoyed your experience and the room :)

    Awsome family fun with Alana as our game master
    The room was a perfect level for a family with young kids. Not at all scary with a nice story. Puzzles were pitched at the right level for the whole family. Our Game-master (Alana) was fantastic with our kids. Would definitely recommend and return.
    Hey Robin, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a great review. We're glad you found that great for all of the family and that Alana was able to give you a good experience as well. Hope to see you again soon :)

We did Buccaneers Bounty as an experienced team of two.
First, 5 stars for the staff for sure! The staff were so enthusiastic and clearly passionate about their job. When we needed a hint, it was clear that the staff were attentive and knew where we were up to in the room, which isn’t always the case in other escape rooms.

The room itself was great; very atmospheric and had great props. On the downside, it was too dark in some key areas where seeing what you were doing was quite vital. There were torches for us, but unfortunately one didn’t work and the other was too dim to be useful.

Great variety of interactive puzzles, probably an intermediate level difficulty. For people who are more experienced, a couple more puzzles might have been nice. However, it was great to have a bunch of different styles (not all keys/combinations etc)

All in all, a great experience and we regret not having enough time to do Twisted Trials. Hope to be back on our next trip!

Thanks for leaving a review! We did notice that a few teams were struggling with the dim lighting in Buccaneers Bounty so we made sure to give it a good ol' makeover and improved the lighting situation, as well as adding a bunch of fun new puzzles! Hopefully we see you back again to play twisted Trials sometime soon!

My family and I were keen to try our chances at an escape room. We came across Lost Locks and was greeted by CC. As our game master and taking into consideration our families dynamics, age and being our first time, CC recommended Cottage Capers as our first attempt. CC's recommendaction was spot on as our whole family thoroughly enjoyed our experience, we worked together and solved the puzzles.
We enjoyed ourselves so much, we came back later that evening and tried our skills at Black vs White and equally had an amazing time and experience.
Thank you CC for all your help, assistance and recommendation.

Cheers

The Busbys.

Our first escape room experience when we happened across Lost Locks on the Gold Coast. Nina was a fabulous host and made it heaps of fun. Would love to come back again soon! We took our 13 year old son and his friend and they really enjoyed it too.

I went and played Buccaneers Bounty at Lost Locks escape room a little while back before coming to play their new R18 room just now. Amazing experience! Just as great as the first time. I had Hope as a game master the first time around and Nina for the second and they were both fun and upbeat throughout the whole experience. I definitely recommend! Will be coming back to play their other rooms 100%

My partner and I completed an escape room yesterday with Nina as our game master and thanks to her friendly, knowledgeable and kind demeanour as well as the incredible experience we had completing the room, we are returning again today to do another couple of rooms. Cannot fault this business at all. Immensely recommend to anyone and everyone looking for a fun challenge.
