Frequently asked questions

What is an Escape Room?

Fiordland Escapes offers the option of two uniquely Fiordland-themed immersive adventure games in which players work together to interpret clues, solve puzzles and find keys and codes to "escape" the game.

Is it scary?

Not at all. We aim to surprise, not to frighten. If something makes you jump it will be because it’s unexpected, not unwelcome.

How active do you need to be?

The game is very low impact and designed to be as widely accessible as possible. If you have any concerns about your ability, please raise these with our staff who will be able to offer advice.

How long does it take?

You will have 60 minutes to try and "escape" the room. Do it faster and you could find yourself on our leader board!

Is it suitable for children?

Fiordland Escapes games have been designed to appeal to teenagers and adults but that’s not to say the younger generation won’t also be entertained and engaged. We recommend 9 as a minimum age, but family groups with younger children are still welcome. Players aged under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Feel free to discuss the make-up of your team with our staff.

What does it cost?

Prices vary according to the number of players and the ratio of adults to children. Full details available soon.

How do we find Fiordland Escapes?

This might well be your first challenge! We’re tucked in behind Wild Rides on Te Anau’s Main Street. The entrance is via Park Lane which runs parallel to the Town Centre. Turn down Garage Lane (beside the Mobil service station), head towards the lake and you’ll see us on your right.

Is parking available?

Public parking is free along Park Lane. Please do not park on the business premises as this is reserved for the other tenants of the building.
