The Packhunt was fantastic! Great way to see Manly and learn some hidden secrets of the area for locals and tourists. Had the lure of kids being able to use their phone or iPod to uncover clues. Cryptic clues made us all think and answers...More

Had a great time at Room8 with a group of school mums. The puzzles were really challenging, the game master helpful when we needed it and great time was had by all - just the thing for a cold winter's night!

We visited Room eight and completed two rooms I loved the Aussie Dunny so well done and unique. Theming was good, puzzles challenging enough for the two of us and lots of fun. Julia and Darren from Elude Escape Rooms

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

Hi Christina, yes the room is child friendly. We would recommend having an adult present as they may find it quite challenging. We’ve had quite a few large groups of 12 and 13 year olds. But there is nothing too scary in the... More
