Which is your most popular Escape Room and why?

Shipwrecked stands out as a favorite due to it having 3 rooms to this theme, allowing us to  accommodate larger teams. It’s also considered our “Easiest” theme, making it an ideal starting point for first-time players. The allure of possibly being shipwrecked and unraveling the mysteries of finding the Royals jewels makes it a popular choice.


On the other hand, Old Hotel has a mysterious atmosphere that draws people in. The theme incorporates a captivating mystery element that piques players’ curiosity. With a medium difficulty rating, it strikes a perfect balance, presenting teams with a challenge that is both achievable and stimulating. The enigmatic character, Mr. O, adds an extra layer of intrigue as players delve into the disappearance and work to solve the puzzle.

    Hinyhunt is wonderful experience for groups of family or friends. We enjoyed both the escape rooms and the amazing race. Each person in the group can use the own skills or knowledge to assist with solving the clues.

    The amazing race does include lots of running but is supper fun and interactive.
