Riddle Room's Escape Room League

Riddle Room is hosting Australia’s first ever Escape Room League. We invite schools from all over Canberra and surrounding regions to participate. Students will be required to think inventively, work as a team and complete a series of puzzles before time runs out. Teams of 4-5 students will compete to win hundreds of dollars in cash and prizes and to be crowned this year’s Escape Masters. The fastest team at the end of the season will be declared the winner. Schools can enter as many teams as they like.

There will be two simultaneous competitions running for Season One. The Nightmare and The Dungeon.

For Students

Do you enjoy puzzles? Are you a problem solver? Or do you want to just have some fun? Then you might have what it takes to be this season’s Escape Masters. To enter you’ll need to gather a team of 4 - 5 friends and register through your school.

All students must be from the same school and aged 15 years or older. A full list of competition rules can be found below.

Ask your teachers to organise a session for you and get practicing. An information pack has already been delivered to your school.

For Teachers

Riddle Room’s Escape Room League is a fantastic opportunity for students to represent their school in a way that praises creative thinking and problem solving. The competition is open to all high school and college students ages 15 years and up.

Students will have to communicate effectively, think creatively, and problem solve in order to progress through the game. They will test their ability to work as a team and solve complex tasks all while having fun. The leaderboard will be updated regularly and students will be able to see how they compare against other schools in Canberra and surrounding regions.

There are fantastic prizes to be won for participating students and their teachers. Unfortunately, teachers are ineligible to participate as part of a school’s team. But, teachers can host a team building activity at Riddle Room and even compare times against their students.
