Real Life Escape Game

Escape Rooms are fast becoming the number one attraction in cities all over the world. The premise is that you are locked in a room for 60 minutes and you can only use the elements inside the room to escape. 

Each room is centred around a theme with an accompanying story line. Players need to find clues and solve puzzles in order to progress deeper into the story and eventually out of the escape room. Each room has a specific goal to reach before the timer runs out. 

Escape rooms provide a unique experience for each individual player. You must work as a team to succeed. 

Riddle Room

At Riddle Room we aim to provide an enjoyable and memorable experience for each player. We will be Canberra's first escape room and feature two rooms at opening with a third room to follow shortly after.

We also have a multitude of ideas how we can separate ourselves from other escape rooms. We have a focus on story lines as one of the most important elements of the escape game. We also enjoy an optional competitive side where you can compare against your friends to see who can outsmart each other. 

Our Rooms

The Story

You are contacted by the DreamWake Corp. an experimental science facility that specialise in Oneirology, the study of dreams. They have developed a new technology which can transfer a conscious mind into another's subconscious. They need your help with a particular case; a patient is trapped inside a recurring nightmare. The DreamWake Corp. believe that if you are able to go deep into her subconscious and find the way out, you'll free her from her nightmare. This procedure has never been fully tested and once inside you'll only have 60 minutes before the patient wakes up. Anything could happen in the Nightmare Room. 

The Story

Billionaire and genius Sir Arthur Lockeworth has spent his life looking for his last surviving heir. Today his search comes to an end. He is your great uncle and wants to leave everything he has to you. There is just one last catch. To prove you are truly a member of the Lockeworth bloodline Sir Lockeworth has one final request. In order for the inheritance arrangements to take place you must find his prized journal which contains all the secrets to his wealth. Find the journal within 60 minutes and his fortune is yours.

Risks and challenges

Time: Currently we have our timeline planned out to be open by mid to late August. Construction may potentially take longer than planned which might delay opening to September.

Location: We are in the process of finalizing a lease but need to wait for the project to be backed before we can fully complete the lease agreement.

Space: We have made sure that we have plenty of space to expand and potentially offer up to 4 rooms in the future.

Themes: While the rooms and themes are well thought out and planned there is always scope for change. As we continue to play test our puzzles and perfect our themes we may be adjusting our final product. We would only change something if we feel it would bring a better experience to our audience.

Wheelchair Accessibility: Unfortunately, our location will have stairs and no elevator so there will be no wheelchair access.
