Escape Room!
12.00pm

An impressive and exciting departure from reality, The Escape Room is the ultimate immersive problem solving team activity. Grab your most trusted comrades, sharpen your mind and senses, and see if you can outwit The Escape Room!

Each team is presented with a chained and padlocked safe. Before the game commences each member of each team are physically restrained to one another, around their wrists.

Once the countdown timer begins, teams must work together to solve a series of puzzles and clues that are retrieved in the many layers of the safe.

The pressure cooker situation makes for a great atmosphere as teams race head to head to be the first to crack the safe and take home the prize.
