What adventures are available at The Escape Hunt Experience? We have six rooms at Escape Hunt Sydney split into four different adventures or themes. Each has an exciting and different storyline, theme and decor. Each adventure has an entirely different set of puzzles and codes so you can come back to play our other rooms later and still enjoy the experience.
Can we play against each other in different adventures? Our six game rooms are separate but two adventures are “twinned” into pairs with the same mystery to solve to allow for two teams to compete against each other. This way you can book as a group of up to 10 people, split into two groups and then compete against each other. So if you have an urge to compete, try it, it’s great fun as we start the countdown timer at exactly the same moment!
Secret Service Mission - NEW: Your mission as Australian Secret Service Agents, is to investigate the disappearance of the Prime Minister, Harold Holt.

The police have locked down the area but only for 1 hour. The clock is ticking; your job is to find the thief before he or she disappears forever.

What hours are you open? We are open from 10.00am until 10.00pm, 7 days a week. Our first adventure starts each day at 10.00am and the last at 8.30pm. We close after de-briefing to the last adventurers around 10.00pm…
What if I arrive late? This is a LIVE adventure concept so unfortunately if you arrive late, you will NOT be able to play. It is really important to try to arrive on time for the benefit of your fellow adventurers too and because we have games after your game, the game will have to start without you or your game time will be reduced. We highly recommend to arrive 10 minutes before the start of your game!
Do I need to book in advance? Yes, we operate a sophisticated booking and calendar system here on our website and via Facebook. Bookings always fill up quickly so be sure to check regularly as we open new booking periods daily. Therefore we highly recommend booking online to get the slot you want.
How do I book? Booking is really simple. Go to our bookings page and follow these simple steps –
1. Choose your group size. We allow from 2 – 5 players. Less than 2 means you want to play alone. It’s hard but you can if you really want (but you need to pay for 2 players). More than 5 players is possible too – just book 2 or more rooms and spread your team across those rooms. You will start at the same time and play against each other.
2. Choose your room theme. There is a description on the booking site and more information in our FAQs here on another page but all games are great to play.
3. Choose your preferred date and time. By clicking on all the games you get more choice of dates and times. The chances are you will find a free slot on one of the rooms so check them all one by one!
4. Choose the game and pay. You should have no problems paying either by credit card or PayPal using our online system. If you do encounter problems please contact us.
Important notes: to book multiple rooms select them one by one then pay together at checkout. To book more than 2 months ahead, contact us.
To answer this now would give away the whole surprise, so let’s just say it is one of the most exhilarating ways to spend 90 minutes with your friends. The adventure lasts 60 minutes but you should arrive 10 minutes before for your briefing and afterwards give you the opportunity to dress up and take some sweet detective photos. The adventure itself involves escaping from a room where a crime has been committed. Solve the mystery and escape. Sounds simple? Just try!
Solo players: Our games are all designed for 2 – 5 players. We are happy to accommodate you as a solo player, but remember it will be hard work! It is also a lot of extra work for our game masters so we need to still charge our minimum rate of 2 players…
Group size: We have tested all sorts of numbers but the ideal is a group of 2 – 5 players. For this reason we are quite strict about these team sizes now as we want to ensure each and every Escape Hunt experience is excellent. If you are a group of 6 or more we suggest you play 3 vs 3 against each other. You can book two rooms of 3 players at the same time… let the competition begin.
Where is The Escape Hunt Experience?
We are right in the heart of Sydney’s city center: Level 4, 393 George Street between King Street and Market Street. See our contact page for full directions.
Can I get there by Train? Yes you can. Town Hall, Martin Place and Wynyard stations are all less than 5 minutes stroll away.
Can I get there by bus? Yes, it’s very easy all you need to do is take a bus that goes to Sydney’s city centre and alight near George Street between King Street and Market Street. The closest major bus interchange stations are QVB and Wynyard.
Can I drive to you? Yes, there are many parking buildings nearby, with one of the major ones being the QVB (Queen Victoria Building). However, parking during weekdays is very expensive and finding street parking in the city center can be difficult. Hence we do not recommend people drive to our venue.
Still lost? Give us a call on 02 9299 3929 and we'll guide you in.
The Escape Hunt Experience is a unique adventure based on the classic “escape the room” online games now popular in many countries around the world. Originally, these were online point and click computer games such as Myst and Crimson Room. They were then made into real life games in Japan around 2007. Players are locked in a simple room with objects where they gather clues, crack codes and solve puzzles in order to escape the room before time runs out.
This idea spread to other places and The Escape Hunt Experience is proud to take inspiration from these great games, yet offer something totally unique. We offer a true “experience” like a mini theme park where you are transported back over 100 years and play the part of a famous London detective with your friends or colleagues trying to solve a mystery. As a team, you play against the clock in one of our rooms to find the guilty suspect’s identity and thereby find your escape. Our experience lasts around 90 minutes. After the 60 minute game we invite you to chat about your experience in our luxurious lounge area over a drink and dress up in period costumes for photos.
The Escape Hunt Experience is aimed at anyone with a sense of fun who likes puzzles and fun brain teasers. We have intentionally designed the adventures to appeal to different age groups, genders and backgrounds. We find that equal numbers of tourists and locals enjoy the game immensely. Our game masters are here to play with you and help you where needed. Escape Hunt is fantastic fun for friends, family groups, corporate groups and all ability levels, giving you memories you will treasure for many years!
We are open 7 days a week almost every day of the year with our first game starting at 10:00am and the last game at 8:30pm every day. We will take groups from 2 – 5 players.

Children under 7 must be accompanied by a parent / guardian and there must be at least 1 player over 15.
We are in the process of opening in many other cities around the world.
For those looking for a great franchise opportunity, we invite interested parties to contact us via this website to discuss opportunities in full confidence.
We allow 2-5 people to play in each room. If you’ve got more people, two of our themes are installed identically in 2 rooms, so you can book 2 rooms and compete against each other.
