Southland's first Escape Room experience is here! 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.
Choose from a Wild Moose Chase where you'll find the wild and vast Fiordland bush is good at keeping its secrets, or step back in time, join the Homer Tunnelling team and try to open a road route through to Milford Sound!
You have 60 minutes to solve the mystery of your choice and escape the room – so grab the family and get into this awesome team activity! Our mysterious rooms and puzzles are designed to entertain and engage children over 9 years through to adults, but you are welcome to bring younger children along.
Players under 14 years must be accompanied by an adult.
Getting to Fiordland Escapes
This might well be your first challenge! We are right in Te Anau town centre, 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.
Wild Moose Chase
The wild and vast Fiordland bush is pretty good at keeping secrets. Back in 1910, 10 North American moose were released into Fiordland to establish a trophy game herd but few have been seen since. And despite many recorded signs of their presence, many people believe they are now extinct. Do you believe moose still exist in Fiordland? And if so, can you prove it? Piece together the puzzle, compile the evidence and make your case. It’s time to go bush.
Blast from the Past
Step back to a time when hardy men and their families braved isolation and avalanches to build the Milford Road, using little more than shovels and picks. Your role is to join the Homer tunneling team hoping to open a road route through to Milford Sound. Do you have the skills to crack this unforgiving environment and blast through to the other side?
