We did both Redemption and Espionage and loved them both. I’ve now done nine escape rooms and rate these both as the top two. Espionage utilises some great technology to present a point of difference and Redemption fits with the prison theme amazingly. Our host...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.
