Questions about ESCAPE ROOM OZ
Q: We have more than 6 players, so can you handle large groups? A: Just call us. We can help to organize your extra players into a larger room and we have a party room available as well.
Q : Can kids play the game?
A: Yes. However, children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a paying adult. The Dungeon room is also a DARK ROOM, very minimal light. So children under 10 years old may not wish to enter this room. Some puzzles will require the adult mind to help the kids solve them, and we like to think our escape rooms are a great activity for the whole family. # Not recommended for children under 5 years of age. Please contact us if you need the parent waiver in advance. We can send you a link to fill out your waiver online.

WHY USE AN ESCAPE ROOM FOR TEAM BUILDING? Escape Rooms provide a very productive means for team building. Companies are turning to Escape Room Oz to promote team building and employee development more than ever. Here are a few of our recent teams. Super A-Mart Youi Budget Insurance Sunshine Coast Lightning - Super Netball Team Puzzle Rooms, or Escape Rooms, provide a very productive means for corporate team building. Companies are utilizing Puzzle/Escape Room games to develop team building, communication, and individual development. Escape rooms promote some very key components to team building. Unlike other team building activities, each person plays a role, an interactive role, in each story. Each player must communicate, listen, work together, all with the pressure of beating the clock. The adventure helps to develop respect for all team members who contribute, all while having a fun,team bonding adventure outside of work! It helps brings to life who are the leaders, who are followers, and showcases extraordinary skills. While collaborating and team bonding are essential to escaping the room, how each employee handles the tasks provides invaluable information for the company to use for developing their employees. It can show an employee’s strengths and weaknesses and even help to place employees in certain positions such as customer services or technical areas by the way they contribute and by their personalities. It also encourages creative thinking which is a very hard skill to develop in the normal day-to-day situations or with other team building activities. Escape Room Oz can support different company sizes. From 6 players, up to 30 players at once. Different departments can escape different rooms, or the same rooms at different times. Either will allow for important discussions and team building opportunities.
