Had an absolute blast! Very professional, can't stop talking about our experience! Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for an awesome unique thing to do.
Michelle was very good and walked us through everything beforehand.

Exciting and challenging.

My granddaughter chose this activity as her birthday treat, and what a great choice! We were a bit worried it wouldn't be suitable for the 2 granddaughters (aged 11 & 12) but it was perfect. The clues made you think and we worked together well as a team. It was fun and exciting and the time flew. Michelle was brilliant and gave us a few extra seconds to finish.

Very tricky but fun

Great staff, the room is not easy but if you don’t take it to serious it’s a good bit of fun. The girl on the desk was very polite and helpful. Don’t be afraid to ask for clues !

If there is a better escape room I haven't found it!
Dec 2020 • Couples
This was without exception one of the best escape room experiences of my life!

The puzzles are challenging but not obscure or difficult once you get the grasp. Not only that but the owners are clearly passionate about their craft!

I can not recommend this escape room more highly!!

Our first time at an escape room.
Oct 2020
This was our first attempt doing an escape room and we thoroughly enjoyed it. There are lots of puzzles and things to solve, our host Michelle was really nice and gave us an extra few mins at the to finish the quiz. If you are visiting Taupo I would recommend this attraction it is well worth it.

Outstanding!

AMAZING!!! Had such a wonderful time. I’ve done several escape rooms before and this is by far my favourite. I loved the time penalty for asking for a clue, as it makes it more fair for comparisons across teams getting out of the room. I was on edge and busy the entire experience, with so many puzzles to solve in the hour I was very aware of the time left. Challenging, exciting, and a great experience overall. Highly recommended!

Awesome entertainment

What an awesome experience! A great crowd pleaser and it entertained the teenagers too. Everyone came away buzzing and wanting to return the next day. Well done guys, we will definitely be back.

Great Escape Room Experience
Feb 2020 • Couples
Loved the escape room at The Locked Room. Challenging and fun puzzles, and our game master Michelle was very friendly and helpful. This is our 5th escape room on our trip in NZ and this is far and away the best. A shame there is only one room because we wanted to play more :( Would 100% recommend this place!

Excellent!

My partner and I did this today as we love escape rooms. We were a bit apprehensive as we were driving in as it's in a small building behind someone's house, but it turned out to be outstanding!
It is a small room but there are so many clues to find, it is also quite difficult so would suggest having some escape room experience under your belt. The clues are really great and there are so many things to do it's definitely one of the better ones we have done. The owner was absolutely lovely also.
One thing I would suggest is either taking away the time penalty for hints or making the penalty less. Otherwise exceptional.
