This was our first attempt doing an escape room and we thoroughly enjoyed it. There are lots of puzzles and things to solve, our host Michelle was really nice and gave us an extra few mins at the to finish the quiz. If you are visiting Taupo I would recommend this attraction it is well worth it.

AMAZING!!! Had such a wonderful time. I’ve done several escape rooms before and this is by far my favourite. I loved the time penalty for asking for a clue, as it makes it more fair for comparisons across teams getting out of the room. I was on edge and busy the entire experience, with so many puzzles to solve in the hour I was very aware of the time left. Challenging, exciting, and a great experience overall. Highly recommended!

What an awesome experience! A great crowd pleaser and it entertained the teenagers too. Everyone came away buzzing and wanting to return the next day. Well done guys, we will definitely be back.

Loved the escape room at The Locked Room. Challenging and fun puzzles, and our game master Michelle was very friendly and helpful. This is our 5th escape room on our trip in NZ and this is far and away the best. A shame there is only one room because we wanted to play more :( Would 100% recommend this place!

My partner and I did this today as we love escape rooms. We were a bit apprehensive as we were driving in as it's in a small building behind someone's house, but it turned out to be outstanding!
It is a small room but there are so many clues to find, it is also quite difficult so would suggest having some escape room experience under your belt. The clues are really great and there are so many things to do it's definitely one of the better ones we have done. The owner was absolutely lovely also.
One thing I would suggest is either taking away the time penalty for hints or making the penalty less. Otherwise exceptional.
