WHICH ADVENTURE AT THE ESCAPE HUNT EXPERIENCE?

Which adventure at The Escape Hunt Experience?  We will have 5 rooms at Escape Hunt split into 3 different adventures.  Each has an exciting and different theme.

Can we play against each other in different adventures?  Our 5 game rooms are separate but are split into 3 themes 2×2 and 1×1 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 2 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 – up to 30 people!

Can you tell us more about the adventures?
Lost in the Forest is a Beginner or Intermediate room (you can choose your preferred level when you book). It is 1892 and your group is hiking the Milford Track. Unfortunately, you get lost and one of your party breaks a leg. You wander around for days aimlessly, you estimate that you can manage another hour before dehydration and exhaustion set in. You have 60 minutes to find water, food and shelter and to transmit a help message to survive!

The Great Trophy Heist is a Beginner or Intermediate room (you can choose your preferred level when you book).  It’s 1987 and you are journalists reporting on the famous World Cup final at Eden Park. You hear rumours that the rugby trophy has been stolen! You need to use your keen powers of observation and problem solving skills to search for clues and follow the thief’s trail. Can you save the day by finding the trophy and the thief before the whistle blows in 60 minutes. Note: no rugby knowledge required

Island Shipwreck is an Intermediate or Advanced room (you can choose your preferred level when you book). The year is 1866 and you are travelling at sea to prospect gold on board the General Grant. Disaster strikes and a huge storm with treacherous seas smashes your ship against the rocks on the deserted Auckland Islands, leaving you stranded in a large cave. Can you escape from the shipwreck and release a distress signal to a passing ship before it passes by the island!

WHEN CAN I PLAY THE ESCAPE HUNT EXPERIENCE?

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 by credit card 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 6 months ahead, contact us.

HOW DO I PLAY THE ESCAPE HUNT EXPERIENCE?

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 we have a little surprise for you.  The adventure itself involves escaping from a room themed according to a historic mystery.  Solve the mystery and escape.  Sounds simple?  Just try!

Can I play on my own?  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…

So how many people should play?  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.

WHAT IS THE ESCAPE HUNT EXPERIENCE?

Can you give me a 1 minute introduction to The Escape Hunt Experience?  Of course! The Escape Hunt Experience is a unique adventure based of the classic “escape the room” online games now popular in many countries around the world.  Originally these were online point and click flash 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 and little decoration and feel like being inside a computer game while searching for clues and solving puzzles trying to escape.

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” where you try to solve unique and historic mysteries.  As a team you play against the clock in one of our rooms to solve the mystery and thereby find your escape. The adventures last around 90 minutes. The game is 60 minutes and after the game we have a little surprise for you.

Our experience is unique and unlike any other interactive adventure game anywhere in the world. We offer many unique features such as our games are available to closed groups from 2 players up to 6 players maximum in your own private room.

Who can play The Escape Hunt Experience?  The Escape Hunt Experience is aimed at anyone with a sense of fun who likes puzzles.  We have intentionally designed the adventures to appeal to different age groups, genders and backgrounds.  We find that equal numbers of tourists, locals and groups enjoy the game immensely…

How much does The Escape Hunt Experience cost?  Prices start from $29 INCL GST per person. Game prices are per person and depend on the number of players. To book, simply go to our booking page and select your group size, choice of game room, date and time and then pay using our secure system with credit card . It’s as easy as that! We can confidently say the adventure will be well worth the money and one of the best times of your life.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I PLAY WITH?

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.

If you’ve got a big group of people, we can accommodate up to 60 or more people at a time between our games. See our events page to get details on larger groups.
