FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.
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.

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