Elude Escape Rooms Sydney

This is the best type of social activity for all ages, with interactive adventures and challenging puzzles.

What is an Escape Room?

An escape room is an interactive and immersive adventure like starring in your own thriller.  Your team of family or friends enter a themed scenario with the mission to solve the mystery.  You will decipher clues, solve puzzles, unlock padlocks and hopefully escape the final door before time runs out.

You will use teamwork to solve the challenges; working together and communicating  to ensure your success.

This is not a test of “what you know” as all the tools and information you need to complete the tasks are provided in the room.  You will be required to solve practical and logical tasks similar to every day life.

If you need assistance then our dedicated GamesMasters will provide helpful hints to keep you moving through the game.  We want you to enjoy the experience and complete as much of the game as possible before the countdown timer ends.

What is an Escape Room

The best type of escape room is one in which you feel totally immersed in the physical surroundings as though you have walked onto a movie set.  All objects should blend in with the theme so that you believe that everything could be a potential clue.  You should be able to sense the atmosphere and feel a genuine desire to unravel the mystery as a matter of urgency.

What is it like playing an escape room?

Entering an escape rooms is like being the first detective to arrive at a crime scene.  There are no signs or arrows pointing to what is relevant or not.  Like a detective you will need to search thoroughly for evidence. Note things that you find as they may become relevant as the mystery starts to unravel.  Anything that is locked needs to be opened as it is bound to hide secrets that help you build a greater understanding of the facts.  As you race against the clock you will need to think on your feet, use your powers of deduction, follow your gut instinct and at all times keep calm.

Not a Panic Room!

Secret Room in Bookcase

Escape Rooms have often been mistaken with panic rooms.  A panic room is a secure room that allows people to be safe in the event of an emergency. The benefits of a secure room in your home was clearly depicted in the 2002 thriller called Panic Room staring Jodie Foster.  The movie shows how a family managed to escape a group of burglars that invaded their home.

The main difference is that you hide in a panic room but you aim to get out of an escape room.

It is easy to see why these 2 types of rooms can get confused, especially as one of the first escape room companies to open in Sydney is called PANiQ-ROOMS.

Other escape room companies have emphasised on the need to escape by adopting such names as, Escape Hunt, Mission Escape and Xcape Sydney.

In recent years there has been a lot of new escape rooms popping up in and around Sydney.  Whilst the majority of escape rooms appear to be centred around Surrey Hills there are adventures to be found further afield such as Newcastle – Unexpected Exit Escape,  and Central Coast – Escape Rooms Central Coast.  Looking at our map of escape rooms in NSW you can see how they are spreading up the coast from Sydney, but there appears to be a need for an escape room in Gosford to help bridge the gap.

Neat Surprises

Elude’s passion, creativity, and enthusiasm really shines through in the Perpetual Motion room. They definitely managed to throw a couple of neat surprises in there that I’d never seen done at an escape room before. You need to go check out this room, whether you’re an enthusiast or a casual escape room fan! Lovely hosts too, it was so cool sitting down and chatting about what they’re working on and how they got here.

One of the best Rooms in Sydney

It was a fantastic room and the owners are true escape room enthusiasts, so they get the importance of great room and puzzle design. My pretty experienced team all agreed that this was one of the best rooms in Sydney. It’s also a family-friendly theme.
There’s one aspect of the room that is so very original and innovative (but unfortunately I can’t say any more without spoilers). You’ll have to check it out yourself
