Terrible, illogical puzzles that were much too worn, wrapped in a lame backstory that added nothing to the experience. One or two surprises, but nothing good enough to compensate for the overall lackluster blahness of the room. Additionally, the staff were nice but had far...More

On a positive note, it was better than Exitus Macquarie, which was a really terrible experience. So I'm glad to see the Exitus chain does have some good rooms. I did Butcher's Burrow, and the room was mostly good. Every hint was a "oh, we...More

If I could write a negative number, I would. The worst experience, an absolute waste of money. Avoid if you can.

This escape room was horrendously expensive and not particularly fun. The Ipad is bulky and it's almost impossible to scan the QR codes most of the time. I also don't like having to be blindfolded to get to the room. This is a part of...More

If you 2 people with no experience in gambling can finish the Casino room in 26 minutes, anyone can. The room itself was a bit of a let down. The puzzles were easy to solve and nothing about that room was challenging.More
