Escapade is a live escape game with a difference: you get to experience...

Escapade is a live escape game with a difference: you get to experience some classic Kiwi culture as you go. Using your observational skills, problem solving ability, street smarts and common sense, you need to decipher a set of clues and puzzles as you and your team race to find the answers and escape - in 60 minutes. Escapade is an exciting and totally different New Zealand experience.

Difficult - but not too hard, intriguing, challenging, in fact fascinating. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and are already talking about another one. It was a first time for most of us at anything like this. Proprietors were helpful when we needed them, without giving anything away.

Completely loved it! The kiwi themed rooms are genius and we loved how clever the clues were! The Bach was so authentic and all the props seemed straight out of a real kiwi Bach! Staff were great, booking was easy, and we can't wait to come back and try the other rooms!

My family (12 & 15 year olds) and I love escape rooms having discovered them in NZ last year and tried a number here and Australia. We brought a fiend along for her first time. This tavern room is really well designed, challenging but not frustrating or impossible. The assistance was spot on - they asked if we wanted help... More
