The Escape Hunt Experience Sydney, Sydney

4.2
#6 of 38 in Fun & Games in Sydney
The Escape Hunt Experience Sydney is Sydney's most original and exhilarating real live interactive escape room. Teams of 2-5 are locked in a room for 60mins and must find clues, crack puzzles, and solve the crime before time runs out! It's non-stop, adrenalin pumping, brain activity at it's best!

With six rooms, this escape room is perfect for friends and family groups (ages 7+), corporate events, birthday parties, bachelorette and bachelor parties, and much more.

Set 100 years ago in historical Sydney, Escape Hunt has three exciting themes - Robbery in the Cottage, Extortion in the Dockyard, and an advanced room Assassin in the Pub. After the game, players dress up in vintage costumes for a photoshoot and enjoy complimentary refreshments.

    My husband and I took the kids for our first escape room experience and had a blast. We did the robbery in the cottage room. The kids loved it and would love to try another room. The staff were very f...  more »

    Really enjoyed this kooky experience, solving some of the steps posed quite the challenge, excellent for a bit of a brain workout, with clues from the lovely Peter when absolutely necessary!  more »

    Great fun! We have only tried one hunt which was a The Secret Service Mission. The rooms itself was a bit small and cramped. We had 4 ppl and it was just comfortable. Nothing mechanical or electronic, everything is manually opened, or moved. Won't give anything away here. Definitely will return to try the other escape hunts.

    It was okay. The staff was friendly and helpful. However the puzzles were linear and were mostly combination locks. This meant that while someone was working on something, the others had nothing to do. The rooms are also a bit small. Not recommended for big groups. 2 or 3 would be good. The place is not bad. I've been to a really bad one. But it's not great either, compared to some other. In fact, I just went to another place with somewhat linear puzzles and combination locks, but that one was executed way better. For beginners or those who have never played the game before, this is a good starting point. If you've tried the likes of ParaPark and Mission Sydney, you'll very likely be disappointed.

    Fairly challenging escape room, really fun experience and very helpful and friendly staff. Jacqueline and Lisa helped provide tips for solving the puzzles, and were very accomodating, even taking pictures of my partner and I in our sweet detective costumes that were provided by the venue! Definitely going again!

    Had the best time. We did the beginner/intermediate room and was great. Staff is very friendly.

    I visited this escape room last Friday, on the 12th of August. It was my first time playing an escape room, and we had an absolute blast. We did "Extortion in the Dockyard" and the room was nicely made, with great props and very unique puzzles! I especially enjoyed the second and last room. The walkie talkies to communicate for clues/hints with the staff were also a very nice touch to get into the whole 'detective' role play. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and gave precise clues that didn't give the puzzle itself away. The girl who attended us with long black hair was especially lovely and made the experience much more enjoyable. We even got a little extra time to finish the room, as we were very close to escaping! If there was anything to improve on, I would like to see more rooms with immersive storylines or memorable characters! I will definitely be coming back to here and trying out the other rooms :) Anton & An

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
