Until today we had perfect weather. When rain canceled our planned excursion, we headed to the Escape Room. It was so much fun that after one challenge, we went back to try another. We were supplied enough hints to keep our game moving, but all the while it remained a real rush. Since an unpredictable weather is part of the deal here in Queenstown, the Escape Room is one activity that every traveler should keep in mind.

Our family’s first attempt at an escape room, and we were pleased to have escaped, with a few hints! My younger daughter found the whole thing very stressful, but the rest of us LOVED solving the puzzles and working out the solution to escape. We did the gold heist room, as we were beginners.
Recommend this activity for families, friends, rain days and a brain work out after all the adrenaline filled activities.

absolutely loved my experience at escape quest! our room was the gold heist room and it was amazing fun from start to finish. lots of interesting puzzles and some little tricks that I haven't seen in other escape rooms. the room was challenging but not impossible, even doing the room with just myself and one other person we managed to get out in time.
the staff where lovely and the theme was very fitting!

definitely worth a visit!
