Room Pricing

Pricing reduces depending upon the number of people playing. After choosing your game, select the number of people to play and you will see the total cost. As an indication prices per player are: 2 Players $42 per person; 3 players $40 per person; 4 players $38 per person; 5 players $36 per person; 6 players $34 per person; 7 or more player options are available but please call to check. For corporate groups, parties or large social activities please see our group Team Building web page.
When looking at pricing bear in mind that our room games are 1 hr in duration and are exclusive for the number of people booked in a room. Other venues may appear cheaper but you may have less time in the room.

How many people can fit in a room?

All our rooms can take between 2 and 6 players and on request some rooms can take 7. However, if you choose Prison Break Head to Head (where you book and play our 2 identical prison rooms together) then up to 12 people can share the same experience. If you book all of our rooms then we can host 48 players at once. Unlike other escape rooms, our rooms are also private which means that when you book, only you and your friends are in the room - we don't fill up empty spaces with other guests.

Game Duration and Centralised Control Room

Due to the immersion and amount of puzzles in the rooms our games are a full 1 hour in duration compared to other venues which offer less time. However you should allow a total time of 1.5 hrs for your experience as we ask you to arrive 15minutes early to complete waivers, relax in our comfortable reception, use the toilets or partake a drink from our bar and undertake an after game debrief with pictures.
We do not use Walkie Talkies to communicate with you or ask where you are during your escape experience. Our Game Masters, located in our centralised control room, are watching and listening to you throughout your game because each room is equipped with a minimum of 6 cameras, ceiling mounted speakers and microphones. We are the only company in Queensland which uses this system to make sure your game runs smoothly and we are always there to help.

Children, Teens, Parties and Age Limits

Our escape rooms are great for Children and Teens. Each room has a dedicated Game Master who is watching and listening to what is happening within the rooms. We encourage the children to explore, work out the clues and work together as a team but the Games Master can give multiple hints as and when required to make sure the game keeps progressing. Some rooms are better suited for younger players. We modify the adult versions of Prison Break and Bunker for a younger audience.
Ages 10 and above is recommended, but everyone is welcome to play. Children under 7 play for free. Ages 14 and under require a guardian to be present during arrival and when the game finishes but the guardian does not have to partake in the game. Fox in a Box Gold Coast also has a 25m2 room which can be booked for after your party. Please Click Here for more information on Children, Teens and Kids escape rooms and parties.

What is an escape room experience?

Real-life room escape games are a type of live game in which people are together in a room with other participants and have to work together to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and either escape the room, or complete your mission, within a 60 minute time frame.

Team Building

A Room Escape experience is an excellent choice for corporate team building. Your teams will have to work together, use logic and creativity to overcome problems. It is the ultimate team building event. With prior arrangement, if you have an HR department, someone from it can sit with our game masters and observe the game which gives insights into team dynamics. With our 6 rooms we can cater for 36 people per game for one time slot. See our <a href="https://www.foxinaboxgoldcoast.com/teambuilding" target="_blank" style="color:#FFFFFF";><u>Team Building</u></a> web page for more details including corporate packages, catering and drinks.

The games will start at the time stated on the booking, and if you’re not on time, the game will start without you. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the time stated on the booking so that we can do an introduction. We also have a great reception / break out area, with toilets and refreshments, where you can relax and get ready before your game starts . A game takes a maximum of 60 minutes and the entire visit takes a maximum of 90 minutes. After your game you are welcome to stay and reflect on your experience.

Cancelling, Rescheduling and Refunds

When paying for the experience directly online, we do not make any refunds. Up until 24 hours of your game, you can chose to reschedule your game, we will then send you a voucher worth the amount of the game, so you can make a reschedule yourself at a time which is more convenient. If you cannot attend your game due to COVID-19 related issues then we will also supply you with a voucher to reschedule your game at a later date. Please contact us if you have a reservation using a gift card or voucher and you wish to reschedule.

Accessibility and Special Requirements

Our rooms are suitable for wheelchair users but please call us as some of our rooms such as Prison, Bunker, Mastermind Heist and in certain instances Wild West Saloon are more suited than others. People with disabilities may fully enjoy our games. Pregnant women may also enjoy our games as they are not physically challenging and there are no fear factors involved (it's all in the mind as they say !) Also, there are seats in all rooms if a team member needs to rest for a while. Please call us to check the requirements if you are unsure.
