Located in the heart of the CBD, Escapade is an exciting and totally different New Zealand experience, with five completely unique Kiwi culture-inspired rooms to choose from. Bookings are highly recommended, so please feel free to visit our website to check out our escape rooms and making a booking.

We’ve done the Old School and Bach rooms and both are very well designed with great attention to detail with the props and clues. We would rate Escapade the best out of the three escape room activities that we’ve done in Auckland.

Hi there, Our games take between 2 and 6 people in each room. So you need one other person to play. Cheers.
