The area

Neighbourhood: Manly
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.

First escape room experience as a family. We did the Egyptian room. It was hard to understand what we were supposed to do initially. The clues were on an iPad - hard, medium and easy, however it was really annoying that when you pressed the iPad for the easy clue it also gave you the answer - it would be better to have a final button to reveal the answer if you need it. The staff member never helped us (which some people talk about) so not sure if he should have or not?! I'm sure if you do these regularly and with a little staff help you get much better. By the end we knew what we were doing but the hour was up.
It was fun but we would probably try another escape room in Sydney. The regulation of having to wear masks in the room with just our family members was also just too hot.

The Packhunt was fantastic! Great way to see Manly and learn some hidden secrets of the area for locals and tourists. Had the lure of kids being able to use their phone or iPod to uncover clues. Cryptic clues made us all think and answers were evenly spread amongst the 10-year old, 15-year old and 40-something aunty. Looking forward to checking out future Packhunts.

Had a great time at Room8 with a group of school mums. The puzzles were really challenging, the game master helpful when we needed it and great time was had by all - just the thing for a cold winter's night!

I booked this for a mothers day treat for me with my 16 year old son. It was a really fun hour and I''d definitely do this again. The small room is full of hidden clues and we had to work together to try and solve them.

We had an amazing time escaping the Entombed Room at Room Eight! It was our first escape room and we had an absolute ball. Answering the clues was a good challenge and we laughed our whole way through it! Staff were friendly, welcoming and very patient with us. Would highly recommend.

Wasn't too sure how this was going to be fun, but boy was I wrong!! There was 4 of us holidaying in Manly looking for fun stuff to do. Room Eight certainly delivered. The polite and helpful young man, Lewis at the counter, explained what was going to happen and blind folded us and put us in an elevator to start our adventure!!

Im not great at quiz's or cryptic puzzles, but between the 4 of us, we not only got out of the room within seconds of running out of time but laughing our heads off!!

Loads of fun!!!

Escape Room first first timers for this mid-30 couple! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We didn’t pre-book - was a very spur-of-the-moment, what-can-we-do-while-in-Manly thought, popped in learn more about it and there just so happened to be room & timeslot available. We did the Egyptian themed room.

Having not done an escape room before, it took us a while to get into the swing of things/work out what sort of clues to look for. We didn’t ‘escape’ within the hour, but the lovely staff member allowed us extra time to get through to the end anyway.

I can’t remember the staff members name, but she is a credit to the business. Super lovely/friendly, confident, patient & helpful. I hope she’s appreciated by her employer - she’s half the reason we had such a great first time!

Tis a little expensive... was OK for just my husband and I (away on a break without the kids), but when you pay per person, not per room, it could be an expensive hours playtime.

I’m hooked. I’m now looking up escape rooms in our future getaway destinations!

I have now done all three rooms at room eight and have enjoyed all of them thoroughly. last time i went, 8 of us had a blast in entombed. the puzzles were challenging but doable and left you thinking outside of the box. The staff Jake and Tori were super friendly and and helpful when it came to answering questions. then once we finished, we all got a group photo. Could not recommend any place better than room 8.
