The Best Escape Rooms in Auckland

Escape rooms are a super fun activity for all ages. Awesome for birthday parties, team events or just for a laugh with a bunch of friends. Get locked in a room, decipher the clues and figure out how to escape.

When we first discovered escape rooms as a fun, rainy day family activity we were surprised at how many options Auckland has, which just goes to show how popular they are. These are best escape rooms in town and all worth trying out…

Escapade

Escapade: The Kiwi Escape Game offers an authentic Kiwi escape room experience. It is a locally-owned business with Kiwi-themed rooms. Visitors to New Zealand will learn about Kiwi culture while having a fun and exciting time. Rated number one on TripAdvisor, this award-winning escape room is one of Auckland’s best. Its licensed lounge bar is a relaxing place to have a drink before or after your game.

This is a great place for school groups, corporate groups, and all types of parties. There are six escape rooms to choose from plus one outdoor escape game. Custom escape rooms are available for special events. At-home escape experiences through their escape@home app, and live video escape rooms on Zoom are also offered.

My daughter and her friends loved the escape rooms at Escape HQ. The team were wonderful, friendly and helpful and the kids enjoyed cake and food in the party room after. Thanks Escape HQ for a fun afternoon.
