    Great way to spend an afternoon
    We paid $50 each for two activities and this led to nearly 4 hours of entertainment which was great value in Queenstown. We started with ten pin bowling then whilst waiting for an escape room, we played pool in the cocktail bar, enjoying a nice cocktail (though pricy!). The escape room was one of the best we have done and the person looking after us was friendly and helpful. Then because we had 'escaped' within the hour, we were given free cards for some arcade action including VR. This was a whole lot of fun so a really enjoyable family outing
    Hey Rach! Thank you for posting such a great review! 🙌 We so appreciate your amazing comments! We are so grateful to hear you had such a brilliant time with us! Our escape rooms are very tricky and only the cleverest cookies can escape, so congrats! (you deserved a prize!!) We hope to welcome you back on your next Queenstown holiday! You will have to try our other escape room, it's harder... 😉

    So much fun
    I visited here with a large group of colleagues for large private function. The staff couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful. I was very grateful for Ale’s help in winning a large plushy toy to bring home to my two children. Would definitely recommend and visit again the next time we are in town. Hulk is living his best life with us now, even if he looks grumpy.
    Hi Phil!! Thank you so much for the review!! I'm so glad to hear you all had a great time, the team really loved hosting your group! 💃 We really hope we can welcome you back again soon & hopefully the kids can come next time to see what it was all about 😉🙌

    Good value fun for the whole family.
    Awesome experience for adults and kids. We did the escape room, bowling, karaoke, arcade and darts and it was great. As far as value for money, the deals are the way to go and you get hours and hours of fun. Jacinta was a stand out staff member, she made our kids feel really special; and for the adults she makes a great cocktail!
    Hi Emily! Thanks for the 5 star review! It was a pleasure having you in 🥰 We are so glad you loved our deals, they are the best way to try everything we have and have a great time! Can't wait to see you and your family again!

    Great experience
    I had my son's 10th birthday celebrated there 2 days ago. It was his one of the best birthday ever. The party host "Erin" she was amazing. She made my son feel very special on his birthday. She kept the kids engaged and happy with all the fun games. And his friends enjoyed a lot as well. I had a stressfree birthday party ever. Kinpin is highly recommended birthday venue for kids. And of course our host "ERIN" she deserves a big appreciation. She made our day
    What an amazing review, thank you so much!! It is so great to hear that the birthday party was an absolute hit & that you were able to relax while we took care of it! We will be sure to let Erin know your kind words of how much of a superstar she is! 🤩🎉

    Great place and people
    I brought my daughter here for some fun and games. One of the staff, Naomi, saw that she was struggling with a game so took time to teach her how to play and even played with her. So much fun and such legends as staff!
    Hi there!! Thank you so much for the lovely review, it's so great to hear about your special experience with Naomi! 🥰🙌 We will be sure to pass on your kind words & hope to have you visit us again soon! 🤩

For a Venue Manager from Melbourne I’m disappointed. Staff here spend to much time mucking around the bar than making the drinks. Waited 15mins for 4 drinks that we had to go up and remind them to make. Wasn’t busy either. Had to ask the young girl to clear our food plates and excess glasses. She kept walking past wiping table that weren’t even dirty??? For a tourist attraction definitely think twice about going here if you’re not going for the games etc. On the upside they were very polite.

An awesome place to visit, especially on a cold rainy day. We did both Escape Rooms and really enjoyed the Greek Mythology room, the set up was awesome and puzzles pretty tricky. It was the first time we didn't make it out in time (and we've done a LOT).
Great value, two rooms for $50 was better priced than anywhere else.
Would have liked a few less instructions at the start, and for those instructions (eg don't tip out the water on the floor, the eyes will light up when you finish) to either not be said, or written on a little sign at the appropriate place as it felt like we knew what was going to happen before we got there.
Besides those ways of introducing things, we had a good time and did both rooms with 2 people. Also really enjoyed the arcade games snd prize vault, felt like excited kids. Lovely staff, super helpful. Thank you.
