Best Escape Rooms In Sydney For Kids And Families

In case you missed the memo, escape rooms are a super fun, adventurous way to try something new and work on skills like teamwork and communication. Perfect for slightly older kids, teens and adults, who doesn’t love being locked in a room and forced to solve their way out of it?! 

And, luckily for us, escape rooms keep popping up around Sydney—so we’ve rounded up the best of the best, all of which promise a session of serious clue-solving fun.

Escape Hunt

Offering one of Sydney’s most exciting escape room experiences, Escape Hunt offers an intense hour of brain-pumping, adrenalin-fuelled activity. Each brilliantly imaginative game that Escape Hunt offers takes place in a themed room designed with incredible attention to detail; to ensure that you, the participants, can really lose yourself in the experience. There’s a wizards quest, a secret service mission, a robbery and an assassin to choose from—and the immersive games promise fun for the entire family.

Where: Level 4, 393 George Street, Sydney

Expedition Sydney

With some of the best-themed rooms we’ve seen in our quest so far, Expedition Sydney in Redfern is an awesome location for your next family bonding session.

Their Forgotten Son room involves the following scenario: “The sun is low on the horizon on your return trek in the High Country. As the cold starts to bite you notice a faint smell of wood fire lingering in the air and a flickering flame can be seen between the haze in the distance.

Seeking shelter you make way towards the light where you come upon an old wooden, rusty, tin house. The sounds of a sobbing child emanate from within. In sensing its distress and unable to leave the child you look for a way in.”

Wriggle your way outta that one, folks! (Or at least have fun trying.)

Where:  11A Cope Street, Redfern

Mission Sydney

Located in Sydney’s CBD, Mission boasts four escape room themes to choose from—truly offering something for everyone. You can have some serious fun with a family kidnapping, a human doctor experiment, a mysterious crystal mine, or Mission’s infamous vampire castle—where you’re transported to a gloomy castle in the middle ages and the clock is ticking!

Mission markets itself as a ‘mechanical escape room’, which means it’s a whole lot less about locks and keys, and more about lasers and mechanical automation. 

Where: Locations at both Pitt St and George St, Sydney

ParaPark Sydney

ParaPark is north-west Sydney’s escape room offering, and it’s only suitable for those who are brave enough to come face to face with murderers. As part of a global puzzle network starting in Budapest, you’ll have to work your way through dozens of elaborate and straight up confusing puzzles to find your way out. 

There are three different rooms to choose from, all giving you just 60 minutes to escape. The best news? Unlike many other escape rooms, ParkPark is perfect for kids aged 6 and up—with no nasty scares involved!

Where: 2/119 Wicks Rd, Macquarie Park

Labyrinth Escape Room

At Labyrinth Escape Room in Parramatta, you’ll see how your primal instinct come into play in one of their epic rooms—ranging from Japanese horror to insane asylum and a Mexican cartel. You’ll need to find and use objects that help you through a range of logic and skills-based tasks, whilst keeping your eyes on every detail of the room for clues that will help you to escape.
