About
What is an Escape Room? An Escape Room is a fun and exciting experience like no other. You are placed into a specially designed room with your friends and you have to solve a series of puzzles using only the items in the room to progress through a story and find your way out. You will have 60 minutes to successfully complete your objective. Each puzzle is different and will require you think inventively. You will need to think about clues carefully, analyse your surrounding, use objects in unusual ways and work as a team to escape. As you solve each puzzle you’ll uncover new information that will make you rethink everything in the room. Communication with your team is the most important tool to use if you want to get out in time. Escape Rooms first begun in 2007 in Japan and have quickly spread to all corners of the globe. In Australia, escape rooms started in Melbourne and then made their way across the country. As the awareness of escape rooms grew it was important that Canberra has its own escape room so we weren’t being left behind. The Nightmare Room You are contacted by the DreamWake Corp. an experimental science facility that specialise in Oneirology, the study of dreams. They have developed a new technology which can transfer a conscious mind into another's subconscious. They need your help with a particular case; a patient is trapped inside a recurring nightmare. The DreamWake Corp. believe that if you are able to go deep into her subconscious and find out what is causing the nightmare she’ll be able to wake up. This procedure has never been fully tested and once inside you'll only have 60 minutes before you lose your connection and become trapped inside her nightmare forever. Anything could happen in the Nightmare Room.

This was our second Riddle Room experience and it didn't fail to impress - just like our first visit! Tate was a fabulous host and he gave us helpful and muchly appreciated clues when he could see we were stuck! From the moment you walk in the door, every detail of Riddle Room is presented professionally. The thought that has gone into creating the rooms, which really do 'absorb' you into the moment as you lose track of time, is evident.

Knowing that the staff working there at any given time are fully engaged with the group they've locked into a room, and are watching them so they can guide them when and if necessary, it is best to book a room online and leave a message via the booking page. They were so prompt to get back to us and accommodate the booking we made at short notice.

The Dungeon Escape Room at Riddle Room Mitchell was a great birthday present given to me by my three twenty-something sons who came along. The staff were extremely accomodating and helpful. The room design and the clues were keeping with the theme. Danni our host really made it a fun experience. The whole experience was just the right duration for a family get together. Each member of our group of five got to solve puzzles - it wasn't just one person running the show. We all worked together which made it a great bonding experience that we talked about over dinner afterwards. We had heaps of fun. I highly, highly recommend and we will be back to do more. Small suggestion: If you are an oldie like me with poor eyesight you may want a tiny torch to see the numbers on the locks as dungeons can be on the dark side.

We took our sons for their 15th birthday in December (The Hotel), 18th birthday April (The Nightmare) respectfully 4 months apart. We had a great time with both. Managed to complete and get out of them both thanks to the generosity of the staff who were our guides when we got stuck and have us the time needed. The challenges were good and it was great to see my sons in action with what they could do to help their parents get out. Wouldn't have been able to do it without them. We've done two rooms and would like to do the other two rooms sometime. You get a locker to put your belongings in so that you're free and can concentrate on doing the room without worrying about or carting your stuff around. Had a great time. It tests to see how well you can work as a team. The more people the better.

We had a blast completing The Dungeon at the Riddle Room.

Infinite compliments to Sarah - whilst we were deeply tempted to parkour one of the challenges, her clues were on point, instructions were delivered well from start to finish, and she kept the room challenging (and free of broken equipment).

Can firmly recommend The Dungeon as a great team room and the Riddle Room as a phenomenal venue for escape room enthusiasts in Canberra.

Our thanks to Sarah again!

We did The Hideaway room this weekend and it was amazing! For a lot of our group, it was the first time doing an escape room and it was just the right amount of challenging. We did manage to escape but by going 2 minutes overtime.

However, even better than the room itself was our host, Jacob. I really cannot rate him highly enough (no number will do him justice so I'll have to say infinity/10). He was very engaging and exceptionally funny, and we would literally return to Canberra from Sydney just for him! We love him <3

Family group of 7. We did The Dungeon room. It was fantastic! We had age range between 20 and 50 and everyone was able to help solve the puzzles. A few family members were sceptical if they would like it or not and they ended up loving it and want to go back again! Dani was especially helpful as we needed a chair in the room for someone who couldn't stand for the full hour and it was no trouble. Felt very looked after. Can't wait for the next one!

My friends and I went to Riddle Room and completed The Nightmare room. There were too many of us to do one room, so it was amazing that both groups could complete the same room at the same time. It was a great experience and we definitely want to come back. The employees were easy to work with and understand and they were very chill with us being a little bit late. It was also a great reassurance that we didn't have to pay for the amount of people who we booked for but the amount of people that turned up on the day. This was great as we had two people drop out of our booking with little notice. Definitely recommend!

My friends and I completed the Hideaway last night, it was such a fun and unique experience! We loved the film noir ambience coupled with the hard-boiled detective theme. Unfortunately we ran over time by about 6 or 7 minutes but still managed to solve the case, it was so fun and exciting, would definitely recommend for people wanting a more challenging escape room as some of the tasks and puzzles were really quite tricky. Would absolutely come back and try the others!

This was a really fun evening out and something different to do. The team were super friendly, love their jobs and were keen to make sure we had a good experience. Jacob was our host, very knowledgeable and he helped us with some clues that were not super easy that gave the clue away but enough to get us thinking in the right direction and progress. The environment, ie the decor, sounds, props and detail that has gone into the rooms is immense. We would love to return but will need to with friends as there is only one 2 player option, which we have now done. Thank you for a fun night!

Great set up. Our host was terrific., extremely helpful and fun. Highly recommend "Hideaway" to stretch your brains and exercise your problem solving skills. Four of us tried to escape but sadly we ran out of time!
