We aim to have all of our rooms challenging, but doable. The difficulty depends on you, as each room has a certain "mind" that you grapple with. They are all very different, and you may find some harder or easier depending on your skills. The fastest time in all rooms is very similar, but the following may help:
Death Row: An adventure style room with lots of action. In many ways the most straightforward, but probably the most intense as you face the electric chair.
The Asylum: You are dealing with a lunatic, so he is not very deep but devious. It is a room that rewards attention to detail and punishes assumptions. Set in a 1940's operating theatre, it is probably our creepiest room. Contains medical themes.
The Covenant: Here you are trying to get your contract back from an evil lawyer. So he likes logic puzzles and symbolism - a deep thinking room. Contains spiritual themes.
The Wine Cellar: The pretentious winemaker thinks she is so superior to you that she is happy to tell you most of what you need to know in the form of riddles. Our most beautiful and intricate room, and the best if you love cryptic riddles.
Cabin 13: Our most theatrical room. You’ve entered the abandoned Cabin 13 in hopes to return your possessed friend! This supernatural room contains interactive storytelling with a live performer. Contains spiritual themes.
The Magician's Secret: The Magic is all around you, but can you find the magician within you? The Amazing Claudette is a mysterious magician who is hiding a dark and deadly secret. Only you can save the world by mastering her magic tricks and breaking her cruel spell. This room is an adventure, analytical, and communication style room.
As you can probably tell, our emphasis is on theme, story and immersion. None of the rooms are a scare show where you are chased or touched in the dark etc, but they all have a story that is designed to motivate you to want to escape.
**A suggested order, if you are new to Escape Rooms, would be Death Row, Cabin 13, The Asylum, the Covenant, The Magician's Secret, and The Wine Cellar.

The Escape Manor Brisbane venue is on the fourth floor at 51 Edward Street and wheelchair access is provided through a modern lift with no stairs available. Disabled toilet facilities are available on site.
All public access doors, including those into the escape rooms, have a minimum width of 880mm. This means we can welcome guests in wheelchairs to actively participate in escapes in all of our current rooms except for the Magician's Secret, which has a step into the room.
However, due to the nature of the activities, there are some elements of the escape that would require assistance for guests in wheelchairs and there is one smaller section of the Asylum that cannot be accessed in a wheelchair.
Due to the size of the rooms we would recommend only one person in a wheelchair at a time, and certainly no more than two. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you require further details.
