"This place is great, one of the best Christmas parties we've ever had! Highly recommend for team building!" Kathryn P (TripAdvisor)

“We went to Escapade for our work Christmas event, and divided into two groups of 4. We work in the scientific industry, so this was a great way to apply the minds to something different. And did it what!! You need to work as a team, and not overthink things too much. Sometimes the answer to each stage is staring you in the face. Well organised by friendly knowledgeable staff, and the location is really good. Nice lounge to finish off in, with pizzas and a small bar to buy drinks from. A great evening.” Wendy & Albie N (TripAdvisor)

For Adventure Game Rotorua please visit here.

Time to play: Approximately 90 minutes

No. of people: 2-20 per booking. Your guests are split into teams of 2-6 persons per team. For best enjoyment we stagger the start times so teams start 10-15mins apart.

Pricing: 2people = $35pp, 3people = $30pp, 4people = $25pp, 5+people = $22pp

How it works:

  • We’ll send you instructions to download a free app to everyone’s phone before Game Day (or you can nominate two people per team to download it).
  • Your guests are split into teams of 2-6 persons per team (it's best for you to decide this before Game Day). For best enjoyment we stagger the start times so teams set off 10-15mins apart.
  • The game begins at Escapade (just outside), where your team will receive a game briefing and your game backpack from our experienced Game Masters.
  • Using the app and the contents of your backpack, you’ll explore the nearby streets and parks as you solve the mystery. There are hints built into the clever game app to ensure you can always progress, but if you get stuck we’re just a phone call away.
  • The game requires very little phone data and you don’t have to walk too far—but it's best you wear comfortable shoes and clothing so you can walk around easily!

Hosted online escape Games

Our multi-player fully interactive games are designed to reward teamwork and communication—with a focus on fun!

Using Zoom, our Game Masters will host your team and ensure everyone has an awesome experience.

"We had a fantastic time playing the new online escape rooms - the Escapade crew really took care of the whole session and ensured everything went smoothly. Puzzles were challenging and the digital medium made it a unique experience. Loads of fun, we’ve already started putting a couple of teams together for the next game." David, Watermark Creative, Sept 2021.

  • We supply each Zoom breakout room a unique game link to start their game.

Playing the games

  • Each team plays the same game, racing against the clock and the other teams.
  • As well as seeing and talking via Zoom, each player can see their teammates’ cursor in their game.
