Heard of these hugely popular new escape game attractions? If not, it's time you checked this one out!

Escape games are currently a massive global phenomenon, popular in all major cities around the world including Paris, London, Tokyo and New York. Escape Hunt is Sydney's largest and most popular escape game attraction - set 100 years ago in the historic Rocks area.



This live-action adventure game experience is an exciting new concept and is ideal for all ages. It's fast, addictive and a whole lot of fun!

At Escape Hunt Sydney, friends, families, tourists, schools, social and work groups are invited to choose 1 of 3 interactive adventures.

In a team of 2 to 5 individuals, players must work together to find the clues and solve the challenging puzzles and riddles before time runs out.

Escape Hunt also offers duplicate rooms, allowing other teams to go head to head, which brings the experience to a whole new level!

Players can choose from 3 intriguing Escape Hunt mysteries:

  • Robbery at the Cottage:The entire gold coin stash at the largest workers' cottage has been stolen! Now you and your team of world famous detectives have to work together to solve the mystery before the thief disappears forever!

  • Extortion in the Dockyard: The captain has been blackmailed and his reputation and marriage is at stake. You and your team of detectives have one hour to crack the case before the Captain's life is forever changed!

  • Assassin in the Pub: Our newest game! This ADVANCED escape room is based on real life 1920's Razor Gangs of Sydney. Bruhn a razor gang leader has been assassinated! Could the assassin be one of Sydney's most powerful gang leaders, Madam Tilly Devine or her arch rival Madam Kate Leigh. Or is it another shady Sydney character?



    Each of the mysteries feature fun games which require deduction, lingual, mathematics, spatial and physical skills and to an extent mental strength.

    The games last around 60 minutes and are suitable for ages 7 and up with 2 to 5 players per room.

    Bookings are made in 90 minute sessions and once the game is completed players can dress in Sherlock Holmes style detective outfits and have a group photo taken by the friendly Game Masters. They can also enjoy complimentary tea and biscuits in the spacious lounge.

    Escape rooms are cool and this is one of the biggest ones in Sydney. Another one that's really good is a newer one called Next Level Escape (https://www.nextlevelescape.com.au). It's got 2 fantastic rooms - a larger one and a smaller one, both very entertaining and at reasonable prices :)
