A themed room loaded with all sorts of puzzles, locks and codes. Your team is given a mission objective and must work together inside the room in order to work its way through all of the obstacles, achieve your mission objective and escape from the room within a 60 minute time frame.
The Alchemist room takes you back in time to the study of the evil Dr. Enca Corvus, once inside teams must navigate their way around his belongings and unlock all of his dark secrets with the aim of discovering the fabled Philosopher’s Stone.
Our Temple room transports you to a newly discovered temple ruin, once home to a long forgotten, ancient civilisation who worshipped powerful Death Gods. The Old God’s are waking up and only a team of the most intelligent and kind-hearted souls can seal them away for eternity and prevent the coming apocalypse.

We regret that children under the age of 8 cannot be allowed to enter either of our escape rooms as they both feature intricate details and puzzles that are not suitable for young children.
Although we monitor all games, we would advise that children between the ages of 8-10 be accompanied by an adult as some of the obstacles may be slightly out of reach for smaller children.

We are open 7 days a week, from 7.30 am to 11 pm on most days – please see our booking forms on the game pages to check availability.

While we prefer to accept online payments, we can also cater to cash, credit and EFTpos onsite.

Please book mindfully, as availability is often competitive. We will do our best to modify your appointment, otherwise we will refund the total payment as long as this is arranged at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.
Cancellations must be made at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled arrival otherwise we regret that we cannot issue refunds.
If you wish to increase the number of players we can modify your booking anytime (as long as the number of players does not exceed the room’s capacity)
If you need to decrease the total number of players we will require at least 48 hours notice, if we do not receive this notice then you will be charged for the original amount stated on your booking.
All appointments booked require full payment in advance, unless arranged otherwise – with management’s approval.
In case of any damage caused to our equipment, the player will be charged for repairs/replacement.

Regrettably no. We are situated in the basement of an old building from the 1930’s, as a result we regret that we are not wheelchair accessible. The only means of getting down to our rooms is via a short staircase. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause

This depends on how severely you suffer from claustrophobia. We have had many people with claustrophobia visit us over the years and have not had any issues so far. Both of our rooms are equipped with an Emergency Exit button that can be used at any time without disrupting the game so if anyone is feeling uncomfortable they can step outside at any time and take a break.

Our largest room The Alchemist is a 55 square meter space with a few items of furniture, proper lighting, and high ceilings. The door can be opened at any given time, and players can be let out within seconds.

If anyone is still uncomfortable with the idea of an escape room they are more than welcome to come and visit us and see the space before their appointment. We are happy to show people around and answer any questions you may have to put your mind at ease. Please contact us on 02102254443 or email us at Booking@EscapeMate.co.nz to arrange a viewing and we can ensure we have staff on hand to show you around.
