What is an Escape Room?

An Escape Room is an interactive game that transports you right into another world! You and your team must solve a series of clues and puzzles in order to unlock and uncover the secrets of the story, and move your way through each space in the room. The end goal is to escape before your 60 minutes are up! Escape Rooms are a perfect indoor activity for friends, families, couples, and even your co-workers.

What are the recommended team sizes?

We can take anywhere from 2-8 people per room, meaning 40 people across 5 Rooms per hour! We have had groups of 2 get out just as fast (if not faster) than groups of 8 so it is doable with any group size!

For multi-room bookings, you must have a minimum of 4 people per room.

What happens if I feel locked in? Claustrophobic?

The door you enter through will be unlocked at all times, which may be used in an emergency, to use the bathroom during the game or to take a break if needed. 

No need to worry! Our rooms are nice and big, there are no extremely small spaces and the entry door is unlocked for you to leave if you feel uncomfortable.

What is the minimum age to play? 

No children under the age of 5 years of age are allowed to attend for health and safety reasons.

Children over the age of 5 are allowed to attend if a parent is also playing, puzzles are challenging in all rooms so an adult will be required to help children progress through the game.

This is a family friendly game, but not necessarily ideal for children. We recommend to partake as a family, anyone under the age of 14 requires an adult in the room as some of the puzzles are quite complicated.

All children aged 14 or younger must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

What do I need to bring?

Reading Glasses: We recommend bringing your reading glasses along as they will be very useful in the darker rooms and for reading clues and digits on our locks.

Shoes: We do require shoes to be worn at all times. We recommend not wearing high heels so you can really get into the game. 

If I have done all the rooms and want to come back, can I?

Did you know we change our rooms? We have a new reset every few months! 

Each room has its clues changed once a year, we stagger our resets so every three months there's a new challenge for you! Room names will often stay the same so stay tuned for clue resets!

Is there wheelchair access?

Our new location at 6 Sapper Moore-Jones is wheelchair accessible. In terms of room arrangement and doorway width, The Saloon Escape Room is the most wheelchair-friendly, then Project Alpha, and then Lady Luna's Cottage of Mysteries. Please feel free to contact us for more info or pop in and we would be happy to show you the spaces. 

What happens if we don't get out in time? 

A Confinement staff member will come and let you out and you will be invited back to try again another day.

What happens in an emergency or if we need help?

Your main exit is the door you entered, which is always unlocked. If your nearest emergency exit is the door you are trying to escape from, this will automatically de-magnetise in an emergency, allowing an easy exit from the room.

An app is provided to a designated member of your team to call on our staff, you may also use the door you entered through to contact staff for assistance. A briefing will be done so you know where everything can be found for reassurance.

What language are the games in? 

The game is in English which requires you to read English written and verbal clues. Although some puzzles are not language specific.

Can we take photos in the room? 

We do not allow phones or cameras in the room as we do not want to spoil the game for others who have not yet played. Staff will take a cool team photo for you at the completion of the game.

Do you have a function/party room? 

The Saloon Escape Room doubles as a function/party space - set with tables and chairs. Our reception area also has several tables and chairs. Please contact with more details about your requirements and we can make some recommendations for you.

Can we get a team photo?

Yes! We offer FREE team photos after your game, which will be available on our Facebook page @confinementescaperoomshamilton. If you don't feel comfortable with the photo going on Facebook, we can email it to you as well.

Where can we park when we arrive?

We have four designated car parks located just outside the front door of Confinement Escape Rooms for our customers. Please note that these car parks are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are exclusively reserved for our customers during the duration of their booking. In the event that our car parks are full, there are alternative options in close proximity. The Museum car park is only a one-minute walk away and offers 62 car parks at a rate of $1 per hour and $3 for three hours. Alternatively, Grantham Street is a six-minute walk and provides a two-hour parking limit. There is also parking spots further down Victoria Street, which is 2 hours free in the CBD.  Click here for more info on CBD Street parking
