The Escape Hunt Experience is a new and amazing concept that has finally arrived in Gold Coast! As world famous detectives, you'll voyage back in time to early 1900 Gold Coast, into a world of mystery. Your team of 2-5 people will find clues, solve puzzles and decipher cryptic messages to "escape" your room before time runs out. Relax afterward in spacious lounges with complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits, and you'll dress-up for photos in detective costumes. PLEASE NOTE: due to multiple start times throughout the day, please indicate in the Special Requirements Box at the time of your booking your top 2 preferred experience times.
Want extra adrenaline? Book multiple rooms and compete head to head against your family and friends or race against other teams. There are three mysteries to choose from across six rooms, which accommodate up to 30 people at a time, conveniently located in Southport.
What You'll Get
The Escape Hunt Experience is a unique adventure based on the classic “escape the room” online games now popular in many countries around the world. Originally these were online point and click computer games such as Myst and Crimson Room. They were then made into real life games in Japan around 2007. Players are locked in a simple room with objects and little decoration and feel like being inside a computer game while searching for clues and solving puzzles trying to escape.
This idea spread to other places and The Escape Hunt Experience is proud to take inspiration from these great games yet offer something totally unique. The Escape Hunt Gold Coast offers a true “experience” like a mini theme park where you are transported back over 100 years and play the part of a famous London detective with your colleagues trying to solve a murder mystery. As a team you play against the clock in one of our rooms to find the guilty suspect’s identity and thereby find your escape. The adventures last around 90 minutes as after the 60 minute game you can chat about your experience in our luxurious lounge area over a nice cup of tea and then dress up in period costume for photos.
Please note: there are multiple start times per day, in the Special Requirements Box at the time of your booking please includes your top 2 preferred experience times
This experience is unique and unlike any other interactive adventure games anywhere in the world.
