Overview

Next Level Escape is not your grandmother's escape room. Lose yourself in stories so intriguing you simply must find out what happens next. Kick your grey cells into turbo mode, crack fiendish puzzles, and uncover mysteries thought insoluble. Race against the clock, inch closer to escaping with each clue... will you make it out? Sound exhilarating? You need Next Level Escape in your life! Have fun with up to five friends pitting your collective wits against ours, and be captivated from the second you arrive. We guarantee you'll talk about your experience for days to come as you and your friends relive your shared adventure. We are open from 8am to 10pm every day of the week at Level 2, 37 Bligh Street, Sydney.

We did the Ex Libris escape room and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were a group of 3 experienced escape room players (at least over 10 played) and for some reason this escape room hasn't been on our radar until now. We found out about it...More

Ex Libris at Next Level Escape was my first escape room experience. Going into it, I was ambivalent and skeptical, but I am pleased to report that the room was immersive, amusing, and challenging. It was a great first experience and I look forward to...More

One of the best escape rooms I've done! Booking was easy, and the confirmation email gave really clear directions. Our guide was friendly and helpful, and we loved how he became the "narrator" of our adventure. The puzzles were interesting, varied and achievable - the...More

A group of us did the Ex Libris escape room. It's definitely one of the most well thought out rooms in Sydney. Good combination of both old fashioned logic and technology. Zoe our host was extremely helpful and enthusiastic. Highly recommend!

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise

frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
