Frequently Asked Questions

Nothing in the rooms will be there to endanger you and you are not locked in. It is designed to be a mental challenge, not a physically strenuous one!

You are not locked in. The door that you enter to start the escape room cannot be physically locked, so you are free to leave at any point!

Escape rooms as a concept started out with people being locked in rooms, but for safety reasons we will never do that. Each room will have another objective for you to achieve.

No, there is no external knowledge required to complete the room. All information you will need to escape the room will be given in clues you will find. Trying to solve the room based on outside knowledge will often slow teams down.

Most of what you need is your wits, patience and a positive attitude! Other than that, we do advise everyone to bring reading glasses if they have them.

For a standard booking, the cost is as follows:
2 participants - $79 for the team
3 participants - $99 for the team
4 participants - $119 for the team
5 participants - $139 for the team
6 participants - $159 for the team

Due to the design of the room, having more than 6 participants in a room means that some team members are less likely to be engaged because there aren't as many puzzles for everyone to work on.

For this reason, with groups over 6 participants we do ask you to split into two smaller teams and attempt different rooms simultaneously. Please contact us to organise this, because we can usually shuffle the schedule if given enough notice to make two rooms start at once.

Yes you can participate, however we do recommend our experiences for ages over 16. All of our participants need to sign a waiver before entering the room and in the case of under-18 participants we need a parent/guardian signature on these waivers. Let us know if you would like to get this signed in advance, and we can send you a digital copy.

Please note if any participants are under the age of 14, we will require an adult to be in the group.

Our recommendation is that participants should be over 16 years old to be able to tackle the puzzles in the room.

Please note if any participants are under the age of 14, we will require an adult to be in the group.

Yes, we do offer a discount of $5 each for students or under-18 participants. In the case of students, please bring some form of student ID with you and we will refund the $5 on arrival.

Note that if you are under 18 you will need a waiver signed by a parent or guardian to be allowed to participate.

Yes, room escapes are excellent team-building activities as they test teamwork, creative problem-solving and communication. Evolo can open on weekdays to accommodate these, please get in touch with us by email or phone to arrange this.

It is important to your experience that you turn up on time. Your booking allows for a 10 minute initial briefing, a 60 minute experience and a 5 minute de-brief. As we may have other customers to look after before and after your booking, turning up on time is the best way to ensure you receive the full Evolo experience.

While we are a popular birthday activity, sadly we don't have any space for cake or any post-escape festivities (we turned too much of our building into escape rooms!) We are a 10-minute walk from the Hobart CBD or 10-minute walk from the North Hobart Elizabeth St strip where you should find numerous options for this.

Our bookings operate on a private basis, so even if you only book for 2 participants, the room will be entirely yours.

Being a mental challenge, performance in the escape room quickly drops with a few drinks. We do reserve the right to refuse entry to any intoxicated participants, and no alcohol is permitted on our premises. Going out for a drink after the room to de-brief is the best bet!
