You’re trapped… and the clock is ticking. Everything you need to escape is right there in front of you – if only you can decode it, discover it, unearth it or uncover it. Room Eight is a team sport for your mind: can you and your companions untangle the web of clues and triumphantly make a great escape before time runs out?

I've done two rooms at Room Eight. Entombed was my 5th room in Sydney, and Indisposed was my 8th. Both rooms were really enjoyable with plenty of challenging, original puzzles, immersive theming and both included the owner's quirky sense of humour which I really appreciated...More

Not the first escape room we have done, but it was just as good as others. I think it was a bit pricy having to pay for teens as adults...so $160 for four of us for an hour. But the room was very well done...More

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbor Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
