Amazing Service
Sep 2019
I went to the Locked Room 2 weeks ago during the school holidays with group of friends. It was so professional and the lady running it, i think her name was Holly was so friendly and helpful. She really made the experience and helped us a lot when we got stuck during the clues. I highly recommend this locked room. Amazing !!!!!!!

Awesome escape room experience. Absolutely surpassed our expectations, especially given it’s size. A great combination of puzzles and codes, which we did need one hint for, in order to make it out within the hour! Highly recommend.

Great little escape room!
Jul 2019 • Couples
Overall a fantastic experience. Friendly staff (Holly) and a really coherent storyline with clever clues and puzzles.

With only a single room I didnt know what to expect, as every other escape room I've done there have been multiple rooms - but it worked. A really great and well crafted story & set up, clever clues with a lot of hidden goodies, and the puzzles were great with a combination of locks and other mechanics. Happily surprised by this room and would highly recommend!

Only negative would be that the place is a bit hard to find, could do with some clear signage out the front!

My partner and I have been travelling the country a fair bit to visit a variety of escape rooms and I would rate this among the better ones.
Even though the room is small, it's a very clever set up and I liked how the probs fitted the theme nicely. Holly was very friendly and accommodating which was great too.
Puzzles were a combination of mechanical key locks and number locks and clues in the room were great to find and solve all the puzzles.
Also, we were running quite late due to some unforeseen circumstances and I had called to let the 'owner' (Male person on the other end of the line) know about it. Sadly, he was a bit unfriendly and also short cut on the conversation as such, giving us a bit if an uneasy feeling before we arrived. Gladly, Holly was super welcoming and friendly, totally making up for it!

Best one yet!!
May 2019 • Friends
My friends and I love escape rooms and we are slowly making our way through all of the rooms in Rotorua & Tauranga, we thought we would try this one out and loved it!! We didn't manage to escape but our host let us play out the rest. It was super challenging and very cleverly put together.
I highly highly recommend this escape room if you are in the area or even make a trip to try it out.
Thank you!!

Nicely done
Apr 2019 • Family
This was our 5th family escape room and still a good challenge. Nice mix of elements that fit the theme beautifully and the progress indicator was a nice touch. We didn't make it out in time but as we were working through the last clue when 60 mins ticked over the host let us play out out which was greatly appreciated.

One of the best escape rooms we've ever done
Sep 2018 • Couples
The location was a little tricky to find as our GPS took us way past the turn-off. We did eventually find it though, and actually managed to still be early. We were greeted by a lovely lady who said that even though we were early she would get it set up straight away.

The room was situated inside of a cargo container and we weren't sure what to expect, but were absolutely astounded by what was inside. The room was so well-themed, detailed and perfectly complex. We managed to escape and she showered us with praise about how well we completed some of the elements. My wife and I were pretty chuffed and delighted.

We are from Canada and have done several escape rooms in three different countries, and this was truly one of the best. I would highly recommend it to anybody in the area who enjoys a good challenge. This is a fun way to 'kill' an hour!

Excellent set up
Dec 2018 • Family
I introduced my family to this escape room as their Xmas present. We needed two bookings me, brother and his wife and my other brother, wife and his two teenagers. Everyone enjoyed the escape and will now seek out more of them to do. Neither group escaped but we still really enjoyed the experience.

The room was well set up, instructions were clear and concise. The room was the smallest I had done but was packed full of hiding places, puzzles and the like. Recommended
