The Magic Moonstone
The Flaming Pearl
After saving a woman’s life, your team were hailed as heroes and instantly famous. As life was slowly returning to normal, you received a strange letter containing an internet cafe key card, and this note:
"Prove to us that you are truly worthy, and your rewards will be immeasurable."
Curiosity and the chance of a big payday, lure you all to the internet cafe as instructed.
The room is empty, but you see a message on a computer screen - it’s a puzzle.
Before you know it, you are on a quest to uncover the mysteries shrouding a religious order thought
to be disbanded over 700 years ago. You are in the inner-sanctum of the Knights Templar...
This is a diverse experience and a unique twist on other medieval themed games, as it is set in modern times. The initial setting is an internet cafe where players need to solve several computer based puzzles to be allowed into the inner-sanctum of an ancient secret society. But from then on, the environment and puzzles become more mysterious and historical, the further you progress.

For years I poured my heart and soul into creating a video game; Retro Revenge, but no one wanted to play it.
Instead, I was shunned, ridiculed, and scorned. So, I set up my basement and started making people play it.
What a thrill to see the terror in their eyes, watching them tremble as they try to solve my devious puzzles.
If they're smart enough to succeed, I return them to their mundane life. But for most, it is Game Over… forever. Now I am so famous that the press have given me a name - the Retro Killer!
... I see my new players have just woken up! Let the game begin...
You are the real-life players of a deranged serial killer's game. Use your wits, play by his rules and you may come out alive... This is a room full of surprises; where nothing is what it seems. The props may be unashamedly retro, but the tech in this room is cutting edge!

Escape rooms are hugely popular overseas and are really starting to take off in
Australia too. Conventionally, players are "locked" in a themed room and have an hour to work as a team to solve
puzzles and overcome obstacles to escape from the room. Many experiences in reality, are actually
quests where you are trying to achieve something rather than escape, such as steal a jewel or find treasure, etc.
When you watch a movie you are a passive spectator. With a premium escape or quest experience however, you are the ones deciphering the clues and experiencing the thrill of solving puzzles and uncovering hidden secrets contained in the room.
We will have 5 diverse, highly immersive and technologically advanced rooms, featuring special effects which take the wow factor to the next level.
A huge amount of detail has gone into creating unique storylines, bespoke props and innovative gameplay.
Three rooms are centred around our signature eclipse theme. This adds yet another level of excitement to the experience, as players are trying to beat the eclipse rather than the standard count-down clock.
With an average size of around 50m2, our rooms are also considerably larger than most.
Our hint system is highly user-friendly. Simply press a button to start a 2-way intercom conversation with your Games Master, that all players can easily hear at the same time.
We designed our puzzles to be fun, plentiful and rewarding to solve, but not unreasonably difficult or tedious just to waste time. All our rooms build towards a special finale, which we really don't want you to miss! Therefore, our philosophy is to:
- Volunteer gentle hints if you are behind schedule (but only if you want us to).
- Allow you to go over-time if possible.
What if there is an emergency, I get anxious or claustrophobic?
Our rooms are large and claustrophobia should not be an issue. In any case, yes you will be able to leave the room, if necessary. Every room is either unlocked or has an Exit button in case of an emergency.
However, Retro Revenge and Blackwood Manor will feature scary elements and noises, which some people may find disturbing. Those two rooms will be for adults only and not recommended for
anyone who may be adversely affected by the horror themes.
How long does each room take?
The duration of each experience will be one hour. We will allow you to go over time, whenever possible. Please allow 5 minutes beforehand to check in if all waivers have already been completed online, or 10 minutes otherwise. Also allow for some time after the experience, for a team photo and debriefing.
Are your rooms Covid Safe?
Our escape rooms are one of the safest activities you can do. The rooms are constantly sanitised and cleaned, and you won't need to share the room with strangers. You can also minimise contact by completing the waivers online.
Are your rooms accessible for people with a disability?
All rooms are fully accessible, except for The Flaming Pearl which is not suitable for a wheelchair.
Can we bring our baby in a pram?
Young children will be welcome in The Magic Moonstone, Knights Templar and Flaming Pearl rooms, if they're in a pram or held by an adult.
