Great Escape is a fun and simple, yet challenging REAL LIFE ESCAPE GAME. Your team of 3 to 6 are locked in a themed room. You have 1 hour to escape using nothing but your wits and intellect, creativity and common sense! It's all about the buzz of solving clues and puzzles. Why go to the movies when you can be more than a passive bystander in your own entertainment.

Our group of 8 friends had such a great time at Great Escape. 4 of us got the prison break room and the other 4 got the Alice room. It was very challenging! We can't wait to come back and try other rooms!

My friends and I had so much fun when we did the prison break. It gave us a good challenge and really helped improve teamwork skills. I would rate this 10 out of 10!!! I will definitely come back!

I went with my two young daughters to have fun on a typical windy wet Auckland weekend. We did the the Alice room. It got the girls thinking and me giggling - from being stumped at the beginning, we were helped along with tips from...More

We went as a group of 20 and split into groups for the escapes. Took about 1.5 hours all up. Everyone really enjoyed the experience. Challenging at times and a bit of competition between the teams to get out first!

Came with a group of girlfriends to celebrate a birthday, had a fantastic time. We completed the Psych Ward, very clever puzzles that were challenging and fun.

We went on a work trip, everyone got involved and had a great time. We would go back again! There were challenging moments and both groups needed a bit of a hand (we were split into two groups). Almost worth having a trophy for your...More

Unfortunately it is a lease issue. We are in an old building which we can't alter therefore we can't add any facilities. I understand where you coming from but our hands are tied.

We did Prison Break and our 10yr old girl freaked out at the start and we had to let her out. The staff kindly looked after her and let her watch us on the monitor. I think she would have been OK in "Alice" but we didn't... More
