Remember the games we played growing up around finding missing objects, solving riddles, and frantically fighting against time to escape a locked room and win? What a rush. Experiencing all that adrenaline and fun in real-life escape rooms, is pretty much our childhood dreams come true.

Escape rooms are a great choice for families and friends, tourists, gamers, enthusiasts, and even a team building session between co-workers.

Here’s 6 of the best escape rooms in Adelaide.


This Adelaide escape room venue was opened up by the young siblings Alana and Niko Pappas who were contestants in The Amazing Race.

Their latest Da Vinci-themed escape room launched last November, is filled with intrigue, suspense and excitement. You and your team will be enlisted to explore Leonardo Da Vinci’s underground secret lair, uncover some of his greatest inventions, and make it out alive!

Two of the four themed rooms are also inspired by movies and we’re super keen to try them out. Saw is a horror themed room based on the Saw film franchise, where you have to serial killer Jigsaw’s slaughterhouse. The Hangover Room is light, comic and filled with confusion just like the movies where three friends get wrecked on their Las Vegas bachelor trip.

In the Spy Room, you’ll have to break into the UN headquarters to diffuse a bomb in one of the most challenging escape rooms in Adelaide.
