About Us

Narrow Escape Rooms is owned and operated by Shelley, Craig & Kit, a local family who are also parents, Penrith locals and escape room enthusiasts. When we completed our first escape room (we failed), we excitedly sat around for hours afterwards talking about our experience. After a few more experiences around Sydney & Melbourne, we started talking about what our escape room would look like until we decided to take the leap and start one.

My husband and I did all 3 rooms at Narrow Escape. Each one had great puzzles and concepts which were challenging but enjoyable at the same time.
I hope to see more rooms in the future and we will definitely be there to support.

INCREDIBLE ESCAPE ROOM EXPERIENCE. We did Undetected and Inheritance back-to-back. The production value of these rooms is phenomenal. We’ve done over a dozen escape rooms and this was by far the best.

My group did the inheritance room and the Narrow Escape Rooms. It was so much fun! The age ranges we had were 14-33 year old. Everyone was able to participate and contribute to solving the puzzle. Highly recommend!

We were a group of 5 ranging in age from teens to in their thirties and this was so much fun! I hadn’t ever done an escape room before but everyone else in our group had and they all agreed it was a good one and I had a lot of fun as a first timer. Great set up, challenging but also fun and rewarding. Can’t wait to go again when they have another room for us to try.

Amazing!!! Having never done an escape room before Narrow got me hooked. The staff were super friendly, booking was easy and we ended up doing all 3 rooms in less than a month. We’ll worth the visit!

Absolutely unreal, have done a few escape rooms in the past. Nothing compares to the detail that’s been put in. Overall 10/10 Escape room: Undetected.

Absolutely awesome. We booked this for my daughter’s 13th birthday party and they all had a fantastic time. Shelley and the team were super encouraging (and patient) to help the girls “escape”. Very professional and a highly recommended experience.

Our group of 4 had an amazing time doing the Undetected escape room. The puzzles were changeling but nothing team work couldn’t over come. Fun and interactive, imaginative theme. The instructions and instructors were friendly and helpful. We will definitely be going back and purchasing one of their box escape games aswell 🙂

Great escape rooms and a lovely place! Did the Inheritance and the Undetected escape rooms and had a ball, the puzzles had logical flow, were very creative and were a delight to do.

We love having a local escape room company who are not only so close, but are SO good! We have completed Inheritance and Launch as a family of four, and have really enjoyed the flow of the rooms, the puzzles, the opportunities for teamwork and those ‘aha’ moments. After completing over 80 rooms as a team, Inheritance is in our top 5. We can’t wait to try out the new room soon, as we’re sure it will be just as excellent!

We did the launch at 9.30am. It was so good. Ben was really helpful when we were stuck and he guided us. Will definitely visit again. My son really enjoyed it. I have already done escape rooms but this one is Penrith is the best. I think the staff make it worth it. Five stars to super Ben.
