Journey Through Wonderland



You’ve stumbled into a hedge maze in Wonderland and need to find a way out!
Alice is not here, the Mad Hatter is no where to be found, so the only way out is forward.
Its up to you to solve the puzzles to find your way through, but watch out, the Queen of Hearts could be around any corner!
Can you complete your Journey Through Wonderland before time runs out?

Meltdown!





You’re a scientist at the Hunter Nuclear Reactor and you’ve suddenly realised that you are trapped in your lab – right as the reactor is about to melt down!

You’ve sent out an emergency distress call and the Rapid Emergency Response Team has arrived but can’t get to you.

You will need to work together to solve the puzzles, gain access to the reactor core, and stop the reactor from melting down in just 60 minutes!

FAQ




1. What is an Escape Room?

Our Escape Rooms are themed rooms where you and your teammates find clues to solve puzzles in order to successfully unlock the exit before the clock runs out. Escape rooms are typically best experienced in certain group sizes, and have a range of difficulty levels. You may request hints at any time from the game host via walkie talkie if you are having difficulty.

2. Am I really going to be locked in?

Our Escape Rooms are specifically designed so the way behind you is always unlocked if you need to leave the room for any reason. The entry door and subsequent doors are never designed to be locked behind you once you pass through them.

3. When should I arrive, what should I bring?

All players should arrive 15 minutes before your booked time.

We require fully enclosed, comfortable shoes for our escape rooms. We hope you will respect the room and not take pictures and spoil the puzzles for others, and we provide individually keyed lockers to store your valuables in.

4. Will I be playing with strangers?

No, all sessions are private group bookings. You will only be playing with the group you bring with you.

5. How long does an Escape Room last?

Each Escape Room can last up to an hour, with the room concluding after an hours play, or when you escape. Our rooms are designed with varying difficulties, and differently skilled teams will complete them in different times.

6. What if I need to cancel or reschedule?

We understand that plans change. With 48 hours notice, we can offer a full refund or reschedule your session within 30 days of your original booking, your choice. If you need to reschedule within 48 hours of your session, we will treat this on a case by case basis, but generally we will offer to reschedule your session within 30 days of your original booking only.

7. What if I have Covid-19 symptoms on the day?

Please DO NOT attend your session! Call us in the morning and we will offer to reschedule for when you are well, or, on a case by case basis, offer a refund.

8. Can I add an extra person to my booking?

You can definitely add extra people to your booking, it will cost an extra $33 per person for additional team members. Please note that our rooms do have recommended player numbers for a reason, and larger groups may struggle in the space.

Additionally, with Covid-19 restrictions, we need to ensure we do not exceed our maximum number of people on site, so please call before booking if your team exceeds the maximum bookable number.

9. What if someone doesn’t show up?

Escape room sessions are a minimum of 2 people, so as long as the minimum show up, you can still go ahead with your escape. Unfortunately no refund will be offered in the case of no-shows. If you are unsure if a team member will make it, book fewer members and add them on the day, letting us know what you think the maximum number of team members will be in the booking notes section so we can do our best to remain Covid-19 safe.

10. Can I play if… ?

I am under 18: Our puzzles may be more challenging to younger players, however in many cases they may be the fastest escapers! A parent or guardian must accompany participants under 18 but we do welcome all ages.

I am pregnant: Our rooms are definitely doable if you are pregnant. It is important to speak to a health professional or GP before playing if you have concerns.

I am petite: We have designed the rooms to be completed by most people, however if your entire team is unable to reach (but not necessarily see) a height of 160cm, you may have trouble.

I have a medical condition such as epilepsy or claustrophobia: Our games may cause issues for people with various medical conditions, we utilise LED lights and computer screens in Meltdown, and Journey through Wonderland may have some smaller spaces. Let us know when you book and we can ensure the best possible experience, but do speak to a health professional or GP before playing if you have concerns.

You are never locked inside our Escape Rooms, if you do need to exit for any reason, you can do so at any time.

11. I’m a social media influencer interested in Escape Zone, what should I do?

Get into contact with us! We are more than happy to discuss how we can help you create content! You will have to contact us in advance however.

12. Do you have a Covid-19 safety plan?

We are keeping to the 4m^2 per person limits, we thoroughly clean all touch points between escape games, we encourage social distancing where possible, and do not allow persons on site who are displaying Covid-19 symptoms. However, due to the nature of escape rooms, being indoors in a confined space for an hour with a group, we strongly encourage that you consider your risk before participating in an escape.

13. It is my first time escaping, what should I do?

Try our Journey Through Wonderland room. It has been designed to be an immersive space to have fun in for all ability levels! If you get stuck on any puzzles, you can ask for hints, which will help you solve any puzzle you find difficult in the room!

14. Is there a hint limit?

We don’t limit the number of hints we provide, if you are stuck, we will give you a hint to help you along! Our escape rooms are just as much about experiencing an adventure as they are solving puzzles.

15. Can I bring my baby/toddler?

Our escape rooms are not designed for young children. There are many small parts and swallow-able things in the room. Some spaces in our rooms are not stroller suitable.

We are happy for parents to make a decision based upon their children, as they know them best! If you feel you can supervise your child and they will be alright in the escape room environment, bring them along. We have had multiple parents carrying their babies through our rooms who have had no issues with participating in escaping.
