    Well worth the visit
    Did Jackpot in the Miners Cottage indoor escape room at Escape Quest. Was not expecting it to be as fun as it was, our host Lucy was an absolute delight and made the game that bit more enjoyable. A credit to her company. Would definitely come back again.

    Great Experience
    This was my first experience in an Escape Room and I loved it. The staff were helpful and friendly. We pre-booked before arriving in Queenstown which made the experience easy and convenient. The room (Gold Heist) itself was great and we ‘escaped’ with 1 1/2minutes to spare!

    Hard but so much fun!
    Hard but fun escape room! We did the Murder in the Prince of Wales Hotel 2 and wow, it was very challenging. We managed to escape with just a few minutes remaining. Such a well designed room and lives up to its hard difficulty level. One of the hardest we've done!!

Loved it. We just finished the room with two minutes to spare but that was allowing full cooperation of three children. Totally immersive experience, challenges were exciting, storyline interesting and kept our attention the entire time. Well set up mechanics and all worked well!

What an amazing experience this is. We did the VR pyramid escape. It’s hard to put into words but I just can’t stop thinking about how awesome and funny it was. For more than an hour four of us were completely fooled into feeling we were scrambling around the pyramids figuring out a way out. Hilarious.

We are a family group of 3 (mum, dad and 10 year old son) who did the "Gold Heist" escape room. We mostly did it because our son was desperate to do something like this - to be honest, my husband and I were a bit lukewarm about it, as we mostly wanted to do outdoorsy stuff in Queenstown... however, we are SO glad we went with our son's idea to do this! It was so much fun and it was great to have our brains challenged!

The clues were well pitched in terms of difficulty and there was help on hand if needed. Staff was super friendly and helpful.

I don't want to say too much about the actual escape room, as I don't want to spoil any surprises! But I will say, it was so clever because when we entered the room it was like "oh, there's nothing really in here!" but, as the game progressed, without giving too much away, there was a lot more to see in there by the time we left!

Thank you so much for a super memorable last morning in Queenstown. HIGHLY recommended!

During our Queenstown holiday, we completed all 7 rooms that Escape Quest had to offer - we loved it that much! We have done plenty of escape rooms around the country and these rooms are some of the best. We love that they are highly thematic and based on real life events. We loved the mechanical elements and surprises, the puzzles were the right level of challenge for us, and the rooms were well organised and logical. The VR escape rooms were such an awesome experience as well, and we thoroughly enjoyed those. My recommendation is to make sure you have your headset fitted correctly and your visual field in complete focus, otherwise it might get uncomfortable for you. The staff were amazing as well. Definitely a recommended activity if this is your kind of thing!

Hi tracey_limond, What a great review! We couldn't be happier to hear that you were able to play all our games and that you loved it. It means a lot for us coming from someone that played multiple escape rooms around the country! We really enjoyed having you guys and hopefully we will come up with new escapes for you! Kind regards, Escape Quest.

We have done escape rooms in other cities and had high expectations for the gold rush themed rooms here. In entry we were a bit underwhelmed at the set up of the room. I did it with 3 kids (13,14,15 years) and found they left us floundering g for far too long before hints were given. It’s the first time that the time has been up and we haven’t finished which felt like a real anti-climax. Not well managed for us compared to previous experience. Would think twice before returning

What an exciting hour! Three teenagers and one adult and ALL of our brain power, communication and co-operation was required. It wasn't easy but we escaped with five minutes to spare. Really well done and challenging. Great experience, I would do it again and recommend it to everyone.

The escape room is a really fun way to spend an hour or so. Its challenging without being impossible and great you can get clues if you're stuck. It was well laid out and professionally run. Full of surprises. We competed against another team so it was awesome being able to do the same room as them at the same time. Thoroughly recommend.

Very mixed feelings we did the virtual escape room set in Egypt. We got kitted up with the VR head sets but then left to it, my wife’s head set hadn’t been set up correctly so she called out for help but no one came. Then we did a tutorial but were stuck waiting at the end of it for 5 min as no one was there to start the game I had to take my head set off to get someone to start it. There was also lots of chatting and laughing by the owners/other people walking around so we couldn’t hear each other through the head sets some of the time. When we got to the end of the game no one was there so had to yell out again to see if that was the end of the game as we had just ran out things to do. Over all it was a great game but poorly run, still have no idea what time we managed to escape etc. Would recommend VR escape room but will try somewhere else.

We had a group of 8 and split into 2 teams of 4 to play the outdoor escape quest. What a great way to see the town and learn some history! The technology is very clever. We all enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend it! Staff were lovely.
