Escape room games are a real-life puzzle experience where a small team is trapped in a room and must solve several clues and riddles in an allocated time to exit the room.
Your experience begins with a half an hour briefing and your team has 50 minutes to try and complete the game. There is an extra 10 minutes at the end of your experience to get a photo with your score and collect your belongings.
When you enter the room your game master will instruct you how you got there and why you need to escape. You will then need to work as a team to solve riddles, crack clues and ultimately escape.
Each room holds between 2-6 people to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. If there are more than 6 people we can book multiple rooms to accommodate.
If you are looking to book multiple rooms, a team building experience or function call 1300 787 453.
Exitus Escape Rooms are paid by the room, not per person. So the more people you have, the cheaper it is per person.
An Exitus Escape Room is $80 from Sunday - Thursday and $150 from Friday - Saturday.
As the puzzles can be quite challenging for adults, we would recommend ages over 15 years for our rooms.
You will need all your hands to try to get out, so no food or drinks are allowed in the Escape Rooms.
We don’t want you giving away all the clues, so all belongings including mobile phones will be collected by staff and safely stored until your experience is over.
All of our rooms run at a slightly different time, but only by 15 mins so you have time to grab a beer, talk tactics or check out the times to beat while you wait.
You are welcome to bring along some extra help, but remember there is a maximum capacity of six per room. If your numbers exceed this, you are welcome to book another room online or check with reception if there are any availabilities if your group expands unexpectedly.
What is an escape room?
Escape rooms are a real-life puzzle experience where a small team are locked in a themed room and must work together to escape. Everything around you could be a clue.

Why visit an escape room?
It's a challenging, fun & interactive way to spend 50 minutes. Great for team building outings, hen's and buck's nights or just gathering the gang together and seeing who's the smart one and how strong those friendships really are?!
Feeling spooked? Don’t worry, calm your nerves and remember that our rooms are large enough to hold 6 people freely with ample space to move around and look for clues. Most people who have yet to experience an escape room get the jitters but settle in upon entering the room - ready for the investigation!
