Overview

Escape Masters is an adventure, where teams are locked in a themed room and their common goal is to break out within an hour. To escape, they have to use objects from around the room, find clues and solve puzzles. It is a room filled with brainteasers, tricky riddles, locks, keys and a lot of fun. This internationally popular phenomenon promises a vivid experience where you can become the main character of a captivating mystery. Get in touch with your sleuthing prowess, and test your teamwork and communication skills! Make this your chance to think outside the box, put the batteries in your thinking cap, and enjoy this fast-paced game! Choose your own difficulty level, select one of the themed rooms and bring a team of 2-8 people per room. Suitable for all ages, Escape Masters is the perfect venue for corporate functions, parties, stag and hen nights, or a good time with family and friends. Rest assured, there is an emergency exit in each room, so it's perfectly safe and no one will jump out to give you a fright. Don't miss out on the best cure for boredom and the most unforgettable adventure in Auckland!

« Alien abduction » room Arrived 20 min before the beginning of the session (9h40) and no one there... finally someone from the staff came. I think it was too early for him, soft welcoming, no dynamism, he didn’t put us in the mood for the game....More

Hidden away on the 11th floor this is a cool place for a kids birthday party. Our group of 10 loved it. Very affordable, but could do with a little easier signup process and an onsite cafe. All in all a good day out.More

Yes, you would split into a 5v5 team competition (or whatever numbers make it fair if you have different age groups) though, as each room can only hold 8 people.
