  • What a great idea. We did the brewery murder mystery room. It took us a while to get the hang of it all and needed a few clues along the way. Look forward to going back and having another go. 
  • We did the Law and Disorder room and it was great fun. There was five of us , the maximum number per room is 5, The puzzles were challenging but fun and we only needed assistance from the staff twice....  read more »
  • A group of five tried the Law and Disorder room. It took us over an hour but we managed to solve the mystery. It proved to be a challenge but we didn't take the whole episode to seriously and had a gr...  read more »

  • My daughter and I attended two games here. We travelled a very long way and upon arrival we had to wait outside until somebody let us in. When we came in we were not even offered a cup of water. No one was interested in helping us to use the photo machine or the puzzles on the tables. We needed to use the restroom and had to ask the lady to let us in twice. She seemed very annoyed that she had to do this because she had to escort us. The second time I asked, she even IGNORED me!! When it was our turn to enter the first room (the graveyard) the only things that were explained to us was that we were not allowed to touch the things that say 'do not touch' and not to move anything that seems too heavy or stuck. Then we had to sign a waiver just incase anybody got hurt (THAT was a bad idea)... We both ended up being hurt, not seriously but still in pain for a few days. We were also told that it would not be strenuous work. My daughter and I both found it to be quite strenuous and physically exhausting. Most of the locks are close to the ground and require a lot of bending and kneeling. My daughter and I both hurt ourselves on the grass hill with the graves on it and we could barely fit through the hole in the wall behind the bookcase. In one smaller rooms, there is a letter combination lock with a keyhole at the bottom of it. We spent a lot of time trying to find a key for it until we were told that the keyhole shouldn't be there and that it doesn't need a key. Was that some kind of sick joke? When we had completed the first room, we were very worn out, flustered and thirsty. There was NO offer of coffee, tea or even water. We were told that we could go for a walk and BUY a cup of coffee. Soon after, we began the second room (the brewery). Once again most of the locks were very close the ground and hard to access. The locks in both rooms are SO sensitive that it makes them very difficult to open especially while trying to hold a flashlight. In the brewery, one of the glass whiskey bottles was cracked and smashed at the top and could have been VERY dangerous. There was also a power point in the room which was HANGING OFF THE WALL and had exposed wires. The numbers on some of the ping pong balls were so faded that they appeared to have no numbers written on them at all. The blue light in the room with the scent bottles was not working properly. The blue light was so weak that we could barely read the numbers on the bottles. The scents in the bottles were not very strong and they were almost impossible to differentiate. The scent in one of the bottles we did not even recognise at all. The man giving us clues was not very helpful and also seemed quite annoyed. When we had finished in the final room we pushed the button, no one came into the room so we had to LET OURSELVES OUT. We were still not offered a drink of water and there was no mention of the 'little surprise' I had read about on the website and still no help to use the photo booth. There was nothing. There was one man watching cartoons on the computer at the front desk and one man eating a sandwich at the door. Neither one of them even noticed us. I asked the man at the desk to call a taxi for us. He sighed... It then took him at least 10 minutes to book the taxi through the internet!!! He was very rude to us the entire time we were there. This whole venue was one of the WORST experiences I have EVER had! I cannot believe I am so stupid to have paid $160 in total for this. Not to mention the $120 I spent on the taxi fare too!
  • If you are looking for a team building exercise that makes you think and have fun then this is the place. The scenario's are great and the puzzles you will need to solve will make you think you are in an CSI episode. Great fun.
  • An exhilarating and unique experience. Great fun for family and friends alike. Slightly pricey.
  • Great family and friends bonding time at this adventure place. Bring your partner and have fun
