1.2 You can contact us by using the contact details as set out in the Contact Us section of our website.

 

1.3 If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or email using the contact details provided to us in your booking or enquiry.

2.  PRICING, BOOKINGS AND PAYMENT

 

2.1  All pricing is displayed and charged in New Zealand dollars and includes relevant taxes. Escape Quest reserves the right to alter published prices at any time.

 

2.2  Only person(s) aged at least 18 years are permitted to book a game. Where a customer is booking tickets on behalf of themselves and other members of a group, that person must be authorised to make the booking on the basis of acceptance of these Terms and Conditions by all persons involved in the booking and by a parent or guardian for anyone under 18 years of age when the booking is made.

 

2.3  Minimum age for escape room players is 7 years. Players under 12 years must be accompanied by an adult.

2.4  Customer safety is Escape Quest’s top priority. It’s important if you have a medical condition that you seek professional health advice prior to booking one of our escape rooms or VR experiences. Escape Quest does not take responsibility for customers’ medical conditions whilst playing at Escape Quest. Vertigo sufferers should note that VR escape games include moments of virtual climbing which gives the illusion of being high above the ground.

 

2.5  Bookings and payment can be made online at www.escapequest.co.nz or in person at our premises. Payment for the escape game(s) will be due in full at the time of booking. Price and payment details will be confirmed during the booking process prior to payment and on your booking confirmation. Your chosen payment method will be charged as indicated during the booking and payment process.

 

2.6  It is your responsibility to check that any booking details issued to you are accurate and your details are correct on the online booking form. By submitting an online booking form you warrant to Escape Quest that all details supplied by you are true and accurate.

 

2.7  Our acceptance of your booking will take place when your payment is processed successfully and you reach the booking confirmation page or are provided with a receipt on premise. At this point a contract will come into existence between you and us. We will also send you an email confirmation. Escape Quest will not send further confirmation via post or text message. Your booking confirmation is also your ticket to your mission and valid for up to the number of people shown on the booking confirmation.

 

2.8  We accept the following methods of payment on our website, through our secure booking service supplier PayPal, who will process your payment card data without it having to be held by us:

(1) Visa Debit and Credit Card
(2) MasterCard Debit and Credit Card
(3) American Express Charge and Credit Card. We do not accept American Express for over the counter payments at our premises.

 

2.9  When requested in writing, we also accept invoice payments. In this situation we shall forward you an invoice along with your payment link. Please note that this option is available exclusively to registered businesses booking for team building. The invoiced price must be paid in full before the date of your experience otherwise access to the venue may not be granted or your booking might be cancelled.

3.  CANCELLATION, RESCHEDULING, BOOKING CHANGES AND NO-SHOWS

 

3.1  Escape Quest hosts live experiences and once a booking is confirmed, we cannot accept cancellations or offer refunds.

 

3.2  Re-scheduling your booking may be possible, but only at the discretion of Escape Quest. Rescheduling is free of charge provided you inform us at least 3 days in advance of your original booking date and is subject to availability. If less than 3 days notice is provided, we reserve the right to charge a $20 rescheduling fee. If, for whatever reason, we are unable to accommodate your booking on an alternative date, you will not be due a refund.

 

3.3  If 3 or more days notice is provided at cancellation, issuing a voucher for the equivalent booking value to be used at a later date may be possible, but only at the discretion of Escape Quest.

 

3.4  As Escape Quest is a live event with a scheduled start time, you are responsible for ensuring that all of your group of players arrive at the time stated on your booking confirmation, which is generally 10 minutes before your game start time. Games will not be delayed for late arrivals, although we will allow late arrivals into the room after your escape game has begun, but not more than 15 minutes into the game. Please note that the 15 minutes cut-off time only applies to our escape rooms. For VR experience bookings you will be required to be all present for the start of the game.

 

3.5  If your party has not arrived 15 minutes after your booked game start time, this will be treated as no-show and we may refuse entry to your game. No refund or rescheduling is available for no-shows.

 

3.6  It is your responsibility to make your way to our business premises to play your game at the time stated on your booking confirmation. We do not provide parking or other travel arrangements and any travel information provided on our site is only done so as an aid to planning your visit. We cannot be held responsible for any failure of transport arrangements that result in your booking being a no-show.

 

3.7  To the extent that you bring less players to Escape Quest than booked, the price difference will not be refunded. Please note that there is a minimum of two players required for any game.

 

3.8  If more people attend the game than are booked (up to 6 persons per room) the extra can be paid prior to arrival (call us to add additional people on +64 3 442 4948) or upon arrival at the game.

4.10  CCTV will be used to monitor you and your team during the course of your mission. This includes audio and video monitoring as it is an essential part of running your game.
