What Is An Escape Room?

Recommend to anyone wanting fun, challenges and adventure.

Reviewer on TripAdvisor
Escape Rooms are a fun and exciting experience like no other. We place you into a specially designed room with your friends, where you face a series of puzzles to solve using only the items in the room. As you solve the puzzles, you will progress through a story and hopefully find your way out in time. You will have 60 minutes to complete your objective and escape.
Each puzzle is different and will require you to think inventively. You will need to think about clues carefully, analyse your surroundings, use objects in unusual ways, and work as a team to escape. As you solve each puzzle, you will uncover new information that will make you rethink everything in the room. Communication with your team is the most vital tool to use if you want to get out in time.

Why Escape Rooms?


Escape rooms provide an excellent opportunity for teamwork and collaboration. They require players to work together, communicate effectively, and share their knowledge and skills to solve puzzles and escape before time runs out.

So bring your friends, family, or coworkers! Escape rooms offer a fun and engaging way to strengthen your bonds and build trust.

Unique Experience

Escape rooms are a one-of-a-kind experience that you won't find anywhere else. They offer an immersive and interactive adventure that transports you to another world, complete with intricate puzzles, creative themes, and thrilling challenges.

Whether you're a puzzle enthusiast, an adventure seeker, or just looking for something new and exciting to try, escape rooms are sure to provide a unique and unforgettable experience.

Fun & Challenging

Escape rooms are designed to be both fun and challenging, providing a perfect balance of entertainment and mental stimulation. They offer a thrilling and engaging experience that keeps you on your toes and tests your problem-solving skills.

If you're a seasoned escape room player or a first-timer, there's always a new challenge waiting for you at Riddle Room. So gather your team, sharpen your wits, and get ready for a fun and rewarding escape room experience.

With an interstate visitor all too familiar with Canberras attractions, we were looking for something different to do. We found it. Do yourself a favor and go to Riddle Room. Our group of 6 had an age range of 13-50. All six loved every minute. You’ll leave on a high even if you don’t manage to escape. All personalities, ages and interests will enjoy Riddle Room. Do it.

Three of us did The Nightmare Room today. It was our first escape room and we had so much fun. The room had a great storyline and the puzzles were challenging and fun to solve. Loved it and would highly recommend!!

My friends and I were stoked to do our first escape room and after this one we couldn't be happier. It exceeded our expectations and the way the room worked was so smooth and very impressive. Definitely going back again.
