This was our first escape room & although the aim wasn't to 'escape' but to find lost treasure, it was the same concept & we had lots of fun working out the puzzles together and surprisingly didn't argue too much about it! Definitely recommend it!...More

I’ve done a number of Escape Rooms and frankly this was one of the best I’ve done. The room was very well set up with well thought out enigmas and challenges! I fully recommend !

Loved the Antarctic room. Fantastic clues and very challenging. Can’t wait for the Prison room to open!

There are several escape experiences in Chch and this is the best. Care is taken that the resources clues look like your the first to use them. Fantastic clues

My wife and I did the Antartic room. It was really well set out and had the potential to be challenging, but unfortunately the host was far too quick to give out clues, so we didn't get a chance to work them out for ourselves,...More

It was a really great way to spend our sunday morning. We went in a group of 3 and found the challenges were really clever and kept us all really busy! Loved it. We will be back 😀

We did both rooms and they’re two of the best escape rooms I’ve tried. If you’re trying to decide between the two rooms I’d recommended The lost hut of Antarctica for the challenge and the misadventures of Max Magnus for a bit of fun.
