Escape Dunedin was a great experience! My friend stumbled upon it, and I had heard of live "escape the room" games before, but this was the first one I had participated in. The back story is perfect, intriguing, but just vague enough to peak your...More

Fun thing to do in Dunedin! If you've never done an escape room, this is a great one to do. The staff was great and really care more about the customers having fun than letting people get frustrated with the puzzle.

We had a really great time doing a couple of the escape games. Clues are available if you need help, and the rooms are made up really well - especially fun at the prison.
