Invoking the escape clause

In rare periods of calm and quiet (no bookings after yours) those requiring a little longer to figure it out, maybe offered the Escape Clause. This comes at the price of $20 but gives you a further 15 minutes to emerge triumphant, head held high. Ask your game master – we won’t tell!


We pride ourselves on the difficulty of our Cryptology Escape Rooms, so the more brains the better. If you get stuck you can try asking for help. Look for the Cryptofactor on each room, the higher the number the harder it is.
  • 6/10 and below – Too easy – not worth the bother.
  • 7/10 – Cunning – stick a tail on it & you’d call it a fox! 
  • 7.5/10 – Bamboozlingly Complex
  • 8/10 - Trickily Difficult (Blackbeard’s Cabin – Eastland)
  • 8.5/10 – Damn Hard (Abandoned Reactor – Chermside)
  • 9/10 – Extra Challenging (Pharaoh’s Curse – Eastland)
  • 9.5/10 – Super Tough (Incarcerated – Chermside; Total Carnage – Chermside)
  • 10/10 – Is this even possible?

Are you up for the challenge?
