What is an Escape Room?

An Escape Room is an interactive game that transports you right into another world! You and your team must solve a series of clues and puzzles in order to unlock and uncover the secrets of the story, and move your way through each space in the room - the end goal is to escape before your 60 minutes are up!

Escape Rooms are a perfect indoor activity for friends, families, couples and even your co-workers.

Murdoch Manor

 Last Reset: Feb 2020

You’re journalists and something strange has been going on at Murdoch Manor with multiple people going missing after visiting. The place claims to hold Murder Mystery events but lately more people have been attending and less have been leaving. When you arrive, things seem off. Master Murdoch knows you’re up to something and he will do everything he can to stop you snooping. The doors are locked and Murdoch has given you an hour to find what you’re looking for. If you can’t escape in the hour, you might just join those who have yet to be found…. 

*This room is not dark and is suitable for all ages at parental discretion. Please note there is fake blood/’gory’ props etc in this room. There is also a low door in this room, however staff can open a bigger door on request.

The Lost Villa

Last Reset: Sept 2020

You were exploring a forest near by and stumble upon an old house covered in vines. The garden is overgrown and it’s hard to see inside. As you approach, you trip over a wire of some sort but you’re intrigued so you get up and continue investigating. The house seems to date back to the early 1900’s, and it looks untouched since then. What mysteries does this place hold? Go on in to find out…

*This room is a little bit smaller than our other rooms and partially in the dark. Torches are provided but if smaller spaces and the dark does not sound like you, please check out our other rooms!

Camp Amity

Last Reset: Oct 2020

There are rumours about a hidden club house that’s been hidden for 30 years somewhere in one of the Camp Amity Cabins. You’ve snuck out of your cabin under the cover of darkness in pursuit of Cabin 37, where the clubhouse is said to be. It’s past curfew and you’re supposed to be sleeping so you can’t get caught or you’ll be on dish washing duty for the whole summer! Cabin check is in one hour so you have to be back in bed by then! 

*This room (while still difficult enough for adults) is our most family friendly theme. If you love the outdoors and a fun story, this is the room for you!

The Cigar Lounge

Last Reset: Sept 2020

A friendly game of poker at the local casino has turned sour. A man at the table with you, gives you a look, then calls over a group of men in suits. Next thing you remember is waking up in the boot of a car, and now you are here. In this small bar, alone. What is going on? There is a note on the bar that might give you some clarity. 

*This room is not dark and is suitable for all ages at parental discretion. Please note: This is not a real bar and there is no actual alcohol in the room.


Team Sizes?

We can take anywhere from 2-8 people per room, meaning 32 people across all 4 rooms per hour! We have had groups of 2 get out just as fast (if not faster) than groups of 8 so it is doable with any group size!
 For multi-room bookings you must have a minimum of 4 people per room. The Lost Villa is a slightly smaller than the other rooms so we do recommend group sizes of 6 or less, but 8 is maximum. 

Age Limits? 

Children over the age of 5 are allowed to attend if a parent is also playing, puzzles are challenging in all rooms so an adult will be required to help children progress through the game.

This is a family friendly game, but not necessarily ideal for children. We recommend to partake as a family, anyone under the age of 14 requires an adult in the room as some of the puzzles are quite complicated.

All children aged 14 or younger must be accompanied by an adult at all times. They are not authorised to be in the Skycity building without a adult due to the presence of the gambling.

Done all the rooms and want to come back? You can!

Did you know we change our rooms?! We have a new reset every three months! 

Each room has its clues changed once a year, we stagger our resets so every three months theres a new challenge for you! Room names will often stay the same so stay tuned for clue resets!

Locked in? Claustrophobic? Don't Stress

The door you enter through will be unlocked at all times, which may be used in an emergency, to use the bathroom during the game or to take a break if needed. 

No need to worry! Our rooms are nice and big, there are no extremely small spaces and the entry door is unlocked for you to leave if you feel uncomfortable.

What to Bring?

Reading Glasses: We recommend bringing your reading glasses along as they will be very useful in the darker rooms and for reading digits on our locks.

Shoes: We do require shoes to be worn at all times, we recommend not wearing high heals so you can really get into the game. 

What happens if we don't get out in time? 

A "Confinement" staff member will come and let you out and you will be invited back to try again another day.

What happens in an emergency? 

Your main exit is the door you entered which is unlocked at all times. If your nearest emergency exit is the door you are trying to escape from, then there will be an emergency tear code clearly labelled on the back of the door, tear this to reveal the code for you to easily exit the room, this will be pointed out by staff before you start the game.

An app is provided to a designated member from your team to call on our staff, you may also use the door you entered from to contact staff for assistance. 
A briefing will be done so you know where everything can be found for reassurance.

Wheelchair access?

Unfortunately, having stairs and narrow doors we do not have wheelchair access to the rooms. We also cannot allow teams to carry the wheelchair down the stair as a precaution for fire emergencies. 

What language? 

The game is in English which requires you to read English written and verbal clues. Although some puzzles are not language specific.

Team Photos?

Yes! We offer FREE team photos after your game, which will be available on our facebook page

Photos in the room? 

We do not allow phones or cameras in the room as we do not want to spoil the game for others who have not yet played. Staff will take a cool team photo for you at the completion of the game.

Function/party Room? 

We do not have a function/party room on our premises. However we can help you to book a SKYCITY room, please contact us at


SkyCity offer parking discounts which can be validated by SkyCity after coming to Confinement. Alternatively there is parking along Victoria street.
