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.
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, 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.
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!
