Escape Hunt Gold Coast

Escape Hunt Gold Coast

25% off All Online Bookings*

The Escape Hunt Experience is a unique adventure based of the classic ‘escape the room’ online games now popular in many countries around the world. Originally these were online point and click flash 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 room with objects 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. A true “experience” is on offer, where you 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 the rooms to find the guilty suspect’s identity and thereby find your escape. The adventures last around 90 minutes. The game itself is 60 minutes and after the game you and your team can dress up in detective outfits and receive a complimentary photo to take home as souvenirs. Coffee and tea are complimentary as well after the game.

* Not in conjunction with any other offers. Valid from 1-2nd July only.
