A - Z

Fox in a Box

Brisbane City

Gather your best puzzle solvers – you’re going to need them. Fox in a Box has a variety of rooms each with an elaborate backstory. You’ve got your average zombie lab, prison break, zodiac killer murder, and Tesla’s detective mystery. For the professional escape room artists, there’s a prison break head-to-head experience, where your group is split into two teams and must compete in an epic race to break out of jail first. Who will be lucky enough to leave and who will be trapped forever?

Escape Manor

Brisbane City

Now this one is for the fans of everything creepy, eerie, and weird. Escape Manor is a dimly-lit mansion where you can have a drink or two before diving into your terrifying task of choice. The writing is on the wall (no literally, the asylum room has writing on the wall); these games are guaranteed to scare you when searching for your next clue. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Cube Escape Rooms

Everton Park

Put those brain cells to the test in an hour of mystery-solving and clue-discovering fun at Cube Escape. There are three action-packed rooms to choose from like Flight-427, Area 25, and The Library – totally not ominous at all or anything. Each one ranges in difficulty, so if you are a seasoned mystery solver yourself, opt for The Library. Grab the family or your besties, and lock it in!

Arcadium Adventures

Spring Hill

Keep your wits about you as these tasks go beyond the realm. Teams are given extra time before and after the escape room, so they can uncover every hidden detail. Be prepared to decipher which secrets are needed, which padlocks can actually lock, and what clues are useful to you to finish the puzzle in time. And if you want to take a break from using your brain, the cocktail bar is at your disposal, as are plenty of mysterious board games.

Red Lock

North Lakes

Boasting four immersive challenges, Red Lock is ready to get your memory jogging and adrenaline pumping. For newcomers, the easiest level – The Wizard’s Apprentice – is giving all things Harry Potter, as you try to graduate from the Academy of Magic. Alternatively, both Area 52 and Aunt Annie’s Asylum are just as fun but are bound to give you a good scare. Or, if you are really confident, try your hand at the most difficult task: The Mob Job. Here, team members will solve a murder before the cops arrive at the crime scene.
