“Best escape room in nz - amazing experience. Escape quest was a cut above all of the other escape rooms i’ve done, especially those in auckland. It was tough, but fair with lots of quirky puzzles to solve. The staff were also great with the staff member that helped us explaining the instructions again in french for my partners father. Would love to visit again.”

INTEGRATED TECHNOLOGY

These games were all built from scratch by our talented creative team, who have used technology in clever ways to make your game experience more enjoyable! Whilst our themes remain true to Queenstown in the 1860s, beneath the surface the design is much more 21st century which we hope adds an extra level of fun and mystery to the experience!

INTEGRATED MECHANICS

Each game here at Escape Quest has its own unique narrative, along with its own order of play for a successful escape. We don’t want to give too much away, but appearances aren’t everything and some objects and features of the room may not always be what they seem. We want this experience to be both visually and mentally stimulating so in some cases, discovering or accessing a puzzle could be just as engaging as trying to solve it!
