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!

Booked this event via phone and Phil was super helpful (me not having done this before). Very accommodating for our team of 10. The experience is well thought out, of great quality and challenging. They appear to have something for everyone, including type of capability and experience per room/challenge as well as difficulty level for each of these. Thoroughly enjoyed... More

We went to Escape Masters on a whim with friends we've previous completed escape rooms. We completed the Alien Abduction room in 42 minutes. The room decor and detail isn't as strong as some we've played, but the challenges were good an diverse with a few really stretching our lateral thinking skills.

I'm usually not a fan of this type of thing, especially when it was a beautiful Auckland day outside. However, it was a really fun exercise which was timed so couldn't drag on as well as add excitement to the game. Everyone in my group agreed that we would do it again and could even tackle the difficult level, with... More

As a hen's party group many of us had only just met for the first time a few minutes earlier. Similarly, many of us had never been to escape master's before so we didn't know what to expect. However when the rules of the game were explained to us we thought "oh this shouldn't be a problem to solve. We're... More

Look for a team bonding experience, or just testing other's patience, this is the way to do it! We did it for our Christmas / Team Building day. It was fun, competitive and just really awesome! Different themes to choose from and really well done. Thank you so much Escape Masters!
