What's an Escape Game?
You and your team have only a limited time to unravel the secrets of a mysterious room. Immerse yourself in a curious world, and solve fun, challenging puzzles to escape before the timer runs out.
Can I book a game or workshop?
Please Note: We are not currently operating any of our games. However, all our games are available to escape game operators for purchase, and will soon be available in our new location in Hobart, Tasmania. If you wish to find out more please contact us via email.
How many people can play?
Puppeteer's Workshop: You can book for 2-7 people (we recommend 4-6 players). If you want to bring more players than you originally paid for, that’s fine (up to the maximum of 7). Simply let us know when you arrive for your game, and we will adjust your booking/payment online for you. All other changes to game bookings require at least 48 hours notice. Each group books the whole room for the number of people in your group. You will not be placed with strangers. We can arrange back to back groups if you’d like to bring more than 7 players.

Can people under 18 play?
Players may participate so long as they are 10 years of age or older. Our games are great for families! We require that a parent or guardian provides consent to participate on behalf of individuals aged under 18 years.
Puppeteer's Workshop has some mild horror themes that may make it unsuitable for some younger players. We suggest that parents use their discretion, for example, having an adult participate alongside younger players to provide guidance and supervision. We require all players aged under 15 years of age to be accompanied by at least 1 adult during their game.
Hacked is recommended for players aged 18 and above.
Can we book for our child's birthday party?
Puppeteer's Workshop: Yes! In fact, we allow parties of up to 9 people when the majority of players are aged under 15 years. Simply book your game, then contact us to let us know the details (number of children & adults, game time/date).
We require all players aged under 15 years of age to be accompanied by at least 1 adult during their game (e.g. 8 children + 1 adult, or 7 children + 2 adults), and a parent or guardian must sign a consent form on behalf of any players aged under 18 years.
