Escape rooms have taken the world by storm! An escape room, or puzzle room, is a space specifically set up for the super sleuths at heart to challenge themselves by being locked in, and having to find clues to get out of this precisely designed area!
They are thrilling, nail biting and brain racking, and there are dozens around Brisbane!
Leading the charge is Escape Manor. The “manor” gives guests the options of three, thrilling escape rooms with one more on the way. With names, such as The Asylum, Covenant and The Wine Cellar, you can already envisage the edge-of-your seat excitement within.
The brand originated in Canada, and only came to Brisbane after two locals discovered it on a holiday! They loved it so much that they believed the river city couldn’t be without an Escape Manor.
Also in the city, Strike Bowling in the Wintergarden boasts an array of escape rooms as well. There are the eerie rooms for an older audience, however younger kids and parents are encouraged to have a go at “The Garden” room – a tale of children stuck in a mysterious garden, using keys hidden behind bricks and under pot plants to find their way out. The venue also offers laser tag, karaoke, and of course bowling, making it a great little entertainment precinct.
Finally, the internationally recognized Escape Hunt franchise sits snug in the heart of West End. Three rooms are available, each with their own little quirks await budding detectives keen to solve their mysteries.
