Escape Hunt is now open in Takapuna

Room with a Clue: New Live ‘Escape the Room’ Concept to Challenge Kiwis

Escape Hunt, the worldwide live escape game phenomenon is now open in Takapuna, Auckland
Auckland, July 17 2017: Can you guess which live edu-tainment genre is sweeping the world? Here’s a clue…
The Escape Hunt Experience, one of the top attractions in multiple cities across the world (highly rated on Trip Advisor), has rapidly become the global leader in escape games with games in 19 countries world-wide (and has recently listed on the London Stock Exchange).
The concept is now open 10:00am to 10:00pm in Takapuna, Auckland – joining the already successful Australian branches in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and the Gold Coast.
Based on "escape games", a popular genre for gaming enthusiasts with simple rooms you have to escape using a combination of clue-hunting and puzzle-solving. Escape Hunt takes this idea to a new and family friendly level integrating the concept of escape rooms into an exciting New Zealand themed adventure.
A unique and versatile attraction, the Escape Hunt experience involves teams of two to five people being ‘locked’ inside a mystery room and required to use their combined skills to find clues, solve puzzles and crack codes in order to beat the clock in under 60 minutes. Can you escape the room in time?
Positioned in central Takapuna, Escape Hunt’s success and mass appeal is down to its family-friendly atmosphere truly catering for all audiences. The rooms cater to families of all ages (recommended seven years +), tourists and locals, corporate celebrations and team building, first dates and school groups.
Teams escape from a themed room with the help of a "game master" who watches from outside via CCTV and assists as required. After the game, teams can enjoy complimentary refreshments in the luxurious and spacious lounge as well as participate in a fun detective themed photo shoot.
Transported into a different era, players will go back in time to complete one of three unique Kiwi adventures, including the world’s first rugby themed escape room. Can you escape from getting lost in the Milford Track or from a shipwreck in the Auckland Islands?
Paul Bart, CEO and Founder of Escape Hunt, “We’re really excited to be growing our network across Australia and New Zealand. This is a unique entertainment offering to the market that promotes mind stimulation, education, learning and most importantly good fun. As winter draws in the Escape Hunt experience is a great alternative for family and friends to indoor activities such TV or video games
Built to test the master of minds, the concept is the brainchild of Bart who is a qualified psychologist. Each mystery game has been designed to challenge the senses and requires brainpower, teamwork, decision making, resilience, perseverance, problem solving, codebreaking, puzzles, and plenty of red herrings.
Bart continues “Escape Hunt has becomes a popular venue for hosting a number of corporate team building events and has even been used as part of the interview process for potential job candidates. The one of a kind activity promotes cohesion, communication skills, teamwork, problem solving and creative thinking in a fun and motivational environment. “
Each branch has unique games created and changed regularly. These are created in the Escape Hunt Operations Game Design Academy (EHO GDA), the only one of its kind in the world, located in Bangkok at the heart of the global operations also located there.
