About
Be a special agent for an hour and take your team to an epic, live-action, puzzle-solving adventure game in the heart of Wellington. Boasting three epic, hour long games across two locations, featuring exciting and interactive puzzles with thought-provoking challenges and hi-tech puzzles. The best indoor activity, perfect for rainy days! At Johnston St, embark on a mission to save the world from the wrath of the Death Gods as you explore 'Ancient Temple' ruins. Or, enter a 1930's bank vault, the 'Spaceship' to investigate the crash site of an AI operated alien spacecraft and prevent an alien invasion. At Victoria St, investigate a mysterious, sunken shipwreck to find the lost continent, Atlantis and untangle the dark secrets of the long-lost Utopian paradise, the land of the titans. Switch off from reality and immerse yourself in a hidden world in a movie-like, themed environment with seriously cool, tactile puzzles. Always thought you'd make a damn good detective? Well, prove it.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I did this with a group of cousins and we all loved it. Agent Manaaki was super friendly and helpful, and really added to our enjoyment of the morning.

Much more challenging than anticipated. I liked that we could move around and choose another puzzle if we couldn't work one out at the time as solving the puzzles weren't linear. Staff on hand were helpful and ensured we kept things moving!

Great for the family, if they can work together!! The room was full of surprises and wasn't too difficult or easy. We had to ask for help a couple of times but we did get finished before time was up. Staff -very friendly and helpful. We got out in time for me to write a review😀👍.

It was great fun and certainly very challenging. If it weren't for our two grandsons we may still have been. It sets you thinking and you definitely need to think outside the box. We really enjoyed the experience.
