Boy were we glad when we found an escape room in Queenstown when our outdoor adventures were cancelled due to rain. Just the two of us, we entered Jackpot in the Miners Cottage. Great props, very authentic and good amount of mechanics, challenging even though we are not novices, we had to ask for a couple clues (the down side of having only two brains in the room, escape rooms are better with four or so people) and so unexpected. Just made it out with minutes to spare. Nice touch having the themed dress ups available for group photos. Dearer than most escape rooms but a lot of fun! Can't wait to try the other rooms on our next visit to Queenstown.

This was the first escape room for five of us and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were fantastic. Managed to complete it just in time (thanks to the clues) but so much fun to use the brain without a device for a change.Highly recommend this for travellers and locals if you haven't tried it.

Loved it. We just finished the room with two minutes to spare but that was allowing full cooperation of three children. Totally immersive experience, challenges were exciting, storyline interesting and kept our attention the entire time. Well set up mechanics and all worked well!

Would definitely recommend!!!

My partner and I did the Prince of Wales II room. It was one of my first escape rooms and I found it challenging enough and quite entertaining. One puzzle got me stuck for some time, which was slightly frustrating, but we eventually managed to escape in time with one clue from the staff. Overall, it was super fun.

We came back a few days later to do the Murder in the old man range room. It was definitely harder and our escape on time relied on lots of help from the staff. I thought that the time spent on each puzzle were more balanced in this room compared to the Prince of Wales II room. The technological aspect of the puzzles were quite clever and fun too. If you like complex problem solving and a high pace environment, this is for you.

The rooms storyline’s are based on true events that happened in Queenstown during the gold rush- a great way to feel part of history.

During our Queenstown holiday, we completed all 7 rooms that Escape Quest had to offer - we loved it that much! We have done plenty of escape rooms around the country and these rooms are some of the best. We love that they are highly thematic and based on real life events. We loved the mechanical elements and surprises, the puzzles were the right level of challenge for us, and the rooms were well organised and logical. The VR escape rooms were such an awesome experience as well, and we thoroughly enjoyed those. My recommendation is to make sure you have your headset fitted correctly and your visual field in complete focus, otherwise it might get uncomfortable for you. The staff were amazing as well. Definitely a recommended activity if this is your kind of thing!

Hi tracey_limond, What a great review! We couldn't be happier to hear that you were able to play all our games and that you loved it. It means a lot for us coming from someone that played multiple escape rooms around the country! We really enjoyed having you guys and hopefully we will come up with new escapes for you! Kind regards, Escape Quest.

What an amazing experience this is. We did the VR pyramid escape. It’s hard to put into words but I just can’t stop thinking about how awesome and funny it was. For more than an hour four of us were completely fooled into feeling we were scrambling around the pyramids figuring out a way out. Hilarious.

We had a group of 8 and split into 2 teams of 4 to play the outdoor escape quest. What a great way to see the town and learn some history! The technology is very clever. We all enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend it! Staff were lovely.

We have done escape rooms in other cities and had high expectations for the gold rush themed rooms here. In entry we were a bit underwhelmed at the set up of the room. I did it with 3 kids (13,14,15 years) and found they left us floundering g for far too long before hints were given. It’s the first time that the time has been up and we haven’t finished which felt like a real anti-climax. Not well managed for us compared to previous experience. Would think twice before returning

What an exciting hour! Three teenagers and one adult and ALL of our brain power, communication and co-operation was required. It wasn't easy but we escaped with five minutes to spare. Really well done and challenging. Great experience, I would do it again and recommend it to everyone.
