My brother's bought me a voucher for 2 for Xmas. I selected my good old dad to come with me. We didn't get a record time but we managed to complete it (in the end, with plenty of hints). It was a great feeling getting to the second room. I don't usually enjoy puzzles but this was very enjoyable.

The staff were friendly and very patient.

- Loved the realism of the room
- It was a bit challenging at times, but still fun
- I did not like how the videos/camera footage took a lot of our time to rewatch (perhaps shorten footage or when footage is played first time, pause the timer?)
- Very different from other escape rooms I've done previously: other escape rooms could solve multiple puzzles at the same time while this one you have to go through step by step
- While this step by step process is very effective to be challenging, it sometimes felt like not everyone needed to/wanted to/had to be involved in every step so that could be improved upon
- Other than that, keep it up!

Hi Kmo,

Thank you for your valuable feedback! Mission escape will continue to improve our service and rooms and we are glad that you had fun with us :)

The last order it is the odd one out of the traditional escape room and the aim it is to create the realism environment and indeed the video/footage it is part of the game and unfortunately it is already shorten to a certain stage to keep the realism of the game going.

We understand that it can be a bit frustrating and we will continue to improve the room!

We did the 'Dr. M' room for a friends birthday, absolutely loved it, most of the group are undergrad science students and loved all the science puzzles. We didn't realise but apparently something was wrong with one of the clues (it went off sooner than it was meant to and threw us off course), so we were given a coupon for next time, we will defiantly be back!

My friends and I have been going through the Escape Rooms in Sydney and giving them all a go, and coming back for more because they're so addictive! We tried Mission Escape Rooms for the first time yesterday, and we had booked the Last Order room. I believe this room is the only one at Mission that isn't mechanical. Its more like the other places we've been to so far where you have to solve puzzles and codes to progress through the game. We were so close to getting out on time, and we loved it so much, that we decided on the spur of the moment to see what bookings they had for later that night. Luckily for us, they had one booking left on the Lost Mine room, so we chose that.
The Lost Mine is the hardest room and its also 100% mechanical. I won't ruin the room for anyone, but oh my gosh it was awesome. Being mechanical means that you aren't solving things with locks and codes, there are lots of moving parts. That's all I'm going to say.
I wouldn't recommend doing either of these two rooms if you have never done an Escape Room before (unless a few other people in your group have) as they might be a little too complex for first timers, particularly the Lost Mine. These two are also longer rooms, being 80 and 90min time frames to escape in, as opposed to 60mins in most places.
We just missed out on getting out in time on both rooms, so it was so frustrating, but a good result as we didn't get stuck halfway through or anything like that. So close yet so far, right?!
The staff were also really good at Mission, and they explain things to you at the end so you can see how you would've had to solve the rest if you didn't get out. They also have water waiting for you once you finish the room, and take some fun photos with you to for a memento of your time there.
We will definitely be going back to do the Dr M room (We were told Vampire Castle would be too easy based on our progress in the other two rooms). Can't wait to go back and give that one a go.
You won't regret going here, highly recommend!

Hi Megan,

Thanks for the recommendation! We are very glad that you all had a great time at Mission Escape! It is always our pleasure to hear from the customers like you had such a wonderful time over here.

Your team members were very clever for no doubts :) We can only shows the rest of the game if the team is very very close to finish their game, and in this case that shows your team were very clever to get to the end of the game ! And no doubts you've improve every single time you going into an escape room!

We all love the moments that people taking lot of fun photos at Mission Escape, it make us smile to see every members of you had a fantastic time together :)

We looking forward to see you have another adventure with us in our Dr.M's room ! But if you like to still try out the vampire castle, we would recommend you to do it with less people would make it a little more challenging then it is :)
