Owner description: What is an Escape Room? An Escape Room is a fun and exciting experience like no other. You are placed into a specially designed room with your friends and you have to solve a series of puzzles using only the items in the room to progress through a story and find your way out. You will have 60 minutes to successfully complete your objective. Each puzzle is different and will require you think inventively. You will need to think about clues carefully, analyse your surrounding, use objects in unusual ways and work as a team to escape. As you solve each puzzle you’ll uncover new information that will make you rethink everything in the room. Communication with your team is the most important tool to use if you want to get out in time. Escape Rooms first begun in 2007 in Japan and have quickly spread to all corners of the globe. In Australia, escape rooms started in Melbourne and then made their way across the country. As the awareness of escape rooms grew it was important that Canberra has its own escape room so we weren’t being left behind. The Nightmare Room You are contacted by the DreamWake Corp. an experimental science facility that specialise in Oneirology, the study of dreams. They have developed a new technology which can transfer a conscious mind into another's subconscious. They need your help with a particular case; a patient is trapped inside a recurring nightmare. The DreamWake Corp. believe that if you are able to go deep into her subconscious and find out what is causing the nightmare she’ll be able to wake up. This procedure has never been fully tested and once inside you'll only have 60 minutes before you lose your connection and become trapped inside her nightmare forever. Anything could happen in the Nightmare Room.

We recently escaped from The Dungeon and had a wonderful time doing so. The puzzles were varied and interesting, and the non-linear aspects made it more enjoyable. The staff members here are great. If you want a challenge that is different to the usual escape rooms, then the Riddle Room is definitely at the top of my list for Canberra. We've booked our next one in!

Thanks so much to Diya our host today at our second visit to Riddle Room! The staff here are always lovely and Diya was so sweet and friendly - made our visit just awesome from start to finish! The rooms are great, always set up well and they’re always fun and atmospheric. The team have done an amazing job. Thanks as well to the lovely manager I spoke to via Facebook - they were so quick and helpful in setting us up with a last minute booking.

Had a great time at the riddle room with my friends! Most of my fitness hadnt done a room before and while the room was fairly challenging we did it in the end! Shout out to Sarah for all her help!

I have done all three puzzles here, the most recent one being the Hotel (with Aly). Games are very nicely designed. The Dungeon is the hardest, but also the best in my experience. Staff are always friendly and helpful. I particularly like the hint-on-display system, as intercoms are not really for a group of people under time pressure.

A really fun and enjoyable experience. Individual hosts and staff for each group so you have the full attention of the host if you need some help. I think our host was Nick, great guy who went through the instructions and made my friend who was new to escape rooms feel comfortable. Clues (sadly we needed 2) when asked for were delivered quickly over a screen so there were no hearing barriers. The breakdown screen at the end to show how long the group spent on different puzzled compared to averages was great. Nick was great in talking us through it and making us feel we had done a great job getting through the room.

Would thoroughly recommend Riddle Rooms and Nick as a host. 10/10.
