Located in Fremantle, the Escape Hunt Experience is the ultimate live escape game. It’s an interactive game in which you and your group will work together to solve a mystery within an allotted hour timeframe. There are clues dotted around the room and you’ll need to have your thinking cap on to uncover this fast-paced whodunnit.
In Murder in the Tavern, your group will take on the mantle of a famous London detective, who is called in to solve the mystery of the murdered patron, Bob. Poisoning in the Cafe is the mystery of a poisoned cricketer, while the hardest game, Escape From Prison involves the group finding and tracing the steps of a prison escapee.
Your host will show you to one of the Escape Rooms, provide a quick introduction as to what you need to do before the countdown begins. If you’re feeling a bit sceptical about this kind of game, trust me – you won’t feel like this once that clock starts ticking down!

Once the game begins, adrenalin kicks in and everyone starts looking for clues. You’ll find yourselves working as a team to do your part and piece the bits of the puzzle together. Everyone played their part in the mystery and we solved the crime in just under an hour. It’s the type of experience that requires logical and mental reasoning and an eagle eye for detail.

You can ask for help with the clues at any stage during the game, and the room is not locked in case you do need to step out for a minute. You’ll be asked to leave your mobile phones with the host, which is Escape Hunt Experience policy.
You can take part in each game with between two to six people, and if you have a bigger group than six, your teams can go head to head with another team.
After the game, you’ll have the chance to dress up as a detective for some photos, and enjoy complimentary soft drinks. There are eight sessions available a day.
The Escape Hunt Experience is a fantastic way to spend time with the kids, family or friends. It is a great team-building exercise that requires a little bit of brain-power in a very limited timeframe.
