Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Escape Room?

An escape room is an indoor game where couples or small groups work together to discover clues, solve puzzles, complete a mission and escape the room within a certain time frame.

You can read about our top tips for your first escape room on our blog.

Where are you located? Where can I park?

Suite 4, First Floor, 2 Castlereagh St, Penrith

There is parking in the surrounding streets (check signs for time limits) and in the public carpark in Masters Place (2 hour parking limit – 8.30-6pm Mon-Fri, 8.30am to 4.30pm Sat)

We are located in Surveyor House right above Mrs C Cupcakes (entry is to the left of Mrs C’s).

What ages? Can children take part?

The puzzles and clues are targeted to adults, however our Launch & Undetected games are suitable for children 8+ with adult supervision. Narrow Escape rooms is an excellent family activity. Children 8 to 12 will require an adult in the room. 13 to 16 will require an adult to stay on the premises.

Our Launch and Undetected games are also a fun and unique children’s party idea! For more details on Children’s parties, click here

The Inheritance is suitable for children 12+ in a family group or 16+ without an adult.

Parents and/or guardians must sign a waiver on behalf of any child under the age of 16, allowing them to participate in the sessions.

Launch, Undetected or Inheritance – how do I choose?

We have three games to choose from:

Launch is perfect for beginners (0-5 escape rooms) and families. We have rated it 3 out of 5 in terms of difficulty. Don’t be fooled, we call this a beginner room but it doesn’t mean that it is easy!

Undetected can be varied in terms of difficulty (3 or 4 out of 5) to cater for beginners, children’s parties and family groups through to experienced players.

The Inheritance is rated 5 out of 5 in terms of difficulty and is suitable for experienced players, larger groups (4-6 people), and families with older children.

If you haven’t played either of our games yet, we suggest you start with Launch.

How many people can I have in my group?

Each game can accommodate 2 to 6 people, if your group is larger than 6, consider booking more than one game at similar time slots.

On The Day

What if we are running late?

If you are more than 10 minutes late, this may affect the length of your game as we may have a group booked in the room after you.

A booking becomes a no-show and entry will be declined if the team is 30 minutes or more late. In such a situation the money is not refundable and the booking is not changeable.

Where can I put my valuables?

Lockers are provided for your use while you are participating in your game. We ask that you secure your phones as they can distract from the game, may provide an unfair advantage and we like to keep the mystery of the room to those who have yet to play.

Will there be anyone else in the room with us?

No, the only people in the room will be the people you bring with you.

If it gets too much for me, can I get out of the room? Am I really locked in?

While the experience gives you the impression you are “locked in”, there is an emergency button that you can use to exit the room at any time. This is for your comfort and safety, and will not count as escaping the room. If you are simply stuck on a puzzle, our rooms are monitored by camera and we can assist with providing you with a clue(s)

What if I don’t know what to do?

Our rooms are monitored by cameras, you can ask for a clue at any stage during the game. If we see you are stuck, we may offer to give you a clue.

Do I have to be smart to get out?

No, but it would help. Just kidding, you don’t need any specialist skills, just a thirst for adventure and common-sense

Will anyone jump out and scare us?

No, the only people in the room will be the people you bring with you. We can’t help it if you choose to jump out and scare each other.

I told my friends about my booking and they want to come too, can I bring extra people on the day?

You are welcome to bring extra people on the day as long as you don’t exceed the maximum for the room (6 people), you can pay by debit or credit card at the time of your appointment.

If you have more than 6 people, think about booking a second room, you can check the availability of our rooms by clicking here

You are welcome to wear whatever you like, we recommend comfortable clothing.

Are Food or drinks allowed?
