Launch escape room poster soldier with alien spaceship



60 min







Aliens have arrived and they want to do more than just phone home. Systematically the world powers have submitted due to the massive destruction within only minutes of their arrival. The trajectory and speed of the Mothership shows Australia is the next target, soldiers have left their post, the hostiles will be here within the hour. You are a special forces team sent in to restore our defences, can you get our missiles online and stop the alien invasion?

Escape Rooms in Sydney Review

“The rooms are nicely themed, with appropriate props throughout.  You know how in some escape rooms there are puzzles included just for the sake of it (with no real explanation or tie in to the storyline? Well, I’m really pleased to report that all of the puzzles in Launch made sense to the storyline (and in fact were really well integrated into the storyline).  This really assisted with the room immersion.

The back story to the room is well-considered and the strong storyline continues right throughout the experience; and Launch has a true mix of high and low tech puzzles, which I thought was perfect for the room”

Happy Escapees

Excellent escape room!! My partner and I did the Launch room. Puzzles were amazing and clever. Loved the fun Easter eggs referring to military films. Had an excellent GM. Good room for beginners. Will definately return to attempt the other rooms.

- Tom Culpitt

I’ve done 6 escape rooms and these are by far the best one I’ve been to ???? so good!

- Kirsty Owen

My partner, sister and I did the Launch escape room tonight and loved it. Shelley was our game master and was extremely helpful, gave hints when needed but the hints still made us think. All staff were friendly, the place was very clean and tidy, the room was laid out in a clever way and the puzzles were really good. It was our first time even hearing about this place and we picked it due to close location, but we’re glad we did. Will definitely be returning in the near future.

- Kayla Jade

We attempted launch and managed to get out in overtime The room was one of my favourites Many different unique puzzles we have never experienced and had the cool army spin on everything. Will definitely be going back to do the other rooms Pricing is good and we had a blast Would recommend

- Nathan Walker

We did Launch and it was brilliant! We really had to work together and solve the clues. it got tricky at times but it made saving the world that much more satisfying. Excellent staff, service and facilities!

- Ellie Thomson
