We loved to do this game. We couldn't escape the first room we chose but that doesn't spoiled the pleasure. We also tried room 2 and 3! The service is great and the gamemasters very friendly.
Easy to find nearly opposite the grand kemang hotel.

Thanks much for your review at TA. We are delighted to know that you enjoyed our game tremendously and that you even tried the second and third games (so that now you have completed the trilogy/ saga) yet even got same satisfaction. This proved that our game was designed differently from one another and very unique to give you total enjoyment. Thanks again for coming and tried our game. Kind regards!

We booked this for a family activity during our vacation in Jakarta, bored of malls, cinemas and teenage kids constantly on their gadgets. Adults in one room, kids in another, no gadgets. We adults challenged the teenagers to see who would be successful in escaping first.

Booking through the website was easy, parking available right in front, we started promptly according to the booked time slot, and took photos in Sherlock costumes after escaping. It was really fun and challenging, but not for those who are claustrophobic. The kids immediately wanted to do it again, but for a different case.

Dear Suryahan: thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you felt bored on your second experience. Actually our games are designed differently from one to another, so we wished you could be a bit more explicit which part of the game that you didn't enjoy as each of our game is very unique. A lot of people have tried 2 or even 3 of our games and are still excited to go for more; so perhaps you missed the point of the game. Kind regards!

i was trying to look for new way to spend my off day in Jakarta. This Escape Hunt really gave me something new (coz mostly in Jakarta the thing you do is either go to mall or go for food).
I booked it thru the website n i can say its so nice since they send you a reminder about your book (which i didnt expect).
the place is nice, with all the interior and i like the aromatherapy smell too :)
the game for me is quite confusing but it was so fun. too bad i couldnt solve the case :(, but it juz made me want to play even more and solve all the cases (maybe next time with some friends :) ).
i thought the time will be one and half hour to solve the case but actually its an hour for the case and half hour for briefing and take pic session (which you can wear some detective attribute there)
here are some suggestion for the management:
-maybe the management can give some small puzzles for warming up before we start the game
-maybe you can gv some prize for the winner. lets say, if the group can solve the puzzle in a targeted time, you can give disc on nxt visit (but of course different number of group must hv different target of time coz more people means more brain)
-i hope you change the story or the clue for the game every few time, so we can keep coming back to play different story or same story with different clue :)
