The Escape Hunt Experience Sydney, Sydney

4.2
The Escape Hunt Experience Sydney is Sydney's most original and exhilarating real live interactive escape room. Teams of 2-5 are locked in a room for 60mins and must find clues, crack puzzles, and solve the crime before time runs out! It's non-stop, adrenalin pumping, brain activity at it's best!

With six rooms, this escape room is perfect for friends and family groups (ages 7+), corporate events, birthday parties, bachelorette and bachelor parties, and much more.

Set 100 years ago in historical Sydney, Escape Hunt has three exciting themes - Robbery in the Cottage, Extortion in the Dockyard, and an advanced room Assassin in the Pub. After the game, players dress up in vintage costumes for a photoshoot and enjoy complimentary refreshments.

  • The hosts at Escape Hunt were very accommodating and friendly. The puzzles were quite challenging and fun to uncover. This was my first escape room and I think it was a good place to start. We just managed to finish in the 1hour time limit given. My family laughed and also had a great time. I'll be back for the other rooms! Complementary tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits when you finished with a dress up and photo's opportunity.
  • While this escape room looks well set up from the outside, the rooms are small and claustrophobic to the extreme, and highly underwhelming compared to other experiences of escape rooms. The lack of insulation between rooms means that you constantly are hearing what is going on outside your room (which includes the the staffs questionable choice in music), which is highly distracting. The room we were in was poorly decorated (especially given the comparative cost of the rooms to more bespoke rooms) and the single bulb light made fiddly tasks very challenging. Because of a failure to reset the room completely we where given erroneous directions given by the staff, and as a result we spent a lot of our time (even after asking about the random lock) trying to decode a clue that was no part of the actual game anymore, which made for an insanely stressful and confusing time for no reason (even if clearing the room had not been an the objective). But honestly if you need to give everyone who is attempting your rooms clues (I walked out because I don't need the stress of being stuck in a small room of frustration, and the staff were constantly getting requests for assistance from the occupied rooms) either your directions are unclear, your set up is poor or your rooms are just not that well designed. On the design side, there are significant numbers of "clues" in the room that have nothing actually to do with the puzzles at hand which means rather than just working out the clues you had to work out which cues are clues... before you work out the clues... and even after having the room explained some of the the clues where still inexplicable. From a maintenance perspective many of the locks were sticky and the lack of light made them hard to decipher. I think I reviewed another escape room, you should go there before spending money here.
  • Staff was friendly. Just completed the PM room, the timer kept intermittently going off which was distracting. Tim came to fix. The walls were paper thin so we could hear another group yelling and screaming. My light weight partner couldnt walk the treadmill properly due to the force required, maybe a hand crank would work better. I believe the theme needs help, why is a secret agent looking for the PM, why not detectives. Treadmills on a train, random rooms that are inconsistent with the flow of the theme. My partner and i didn't understand the conclusion of the story and the PMs fate.
  • It was heaps of fun! Very well thought through puzzles. Staff are nice and helpful. Place wasn't too hard to find but they could do with a bigger sign.
  • Went here for my bucks. Had so much fun. Everyone in the group I went with agreed we had to come back for more.
