Southport is a suburb and a business district near the mid-point of the Gold Coast, Australia and has one of the city's largest communities. At the 2006 Census, Southport had a population of 24,097.

It was named Southport because it was the southernmost port of the colony of Queensland. Southport is recognised as the central business district of the Gold Coast City. It has the city's largest area of office space at 103,818 m². In the past, Southport was the central entertainment location of the Gold Coast. In current times it is set apart from the normal tourist hub of the Gold Coast. However, it has still experienced tourist-driven development and extraordinary growth. Southport has 18 high-rise towers either completed, under construction or awaiting commencement.

Escape Hunt Experience Gold Coast more_vert
$36.00 AUD Book
The Escape Hunt Experience is a new and amazing concept that has finally arrived in Gold Coast! As world famous detectives, you'll voyage back in time to early 1900 Gold Coast, into a world of mystery. Your team of 2-5 people will find clues, solve puzzles and decipher cryptic messages to "escape" your room before time runs out. Relax afterward in spacious lounges with complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits, and you'll dress-up for photos in detective costumes.

This live escape game is ideal if you're looking for something different to do or just want to escape the heat or wet weather with your friends and family (ages 7+). Want extra adrenaline? Book multiple rooms and compete head to head against your family and friends or race against other teams. There are three mysteries to choose from across six rooms, which accommodate up to 30 people at a time, conveniently located in Southport.

The Escape Hunt Experience is a unique adventure based on the classic “escape the room” online games now popular in many countries around the world. Originally these were online point and click computer games such as Myst and Crimson Room. They were then made into real life games in Japan around 2007. Players are locked in a simple room with objects and little decoration and feel like being inside a computer game while searching for clues and solving puzzles trying to escape.

This idea spread to other places and The Escape Hunt Experience is proud to take inspiration from these great games yet offer something totally unique. The Escape Hunt Gold Coast offers a true “experience” like a mini theme park where you are transported back over 100 years and play the part of a famous London detective with your colleagues trying to solve a murder mystery. As a team you play against the clock in one of our rooms to find the guilty suspect’s identity and thereby find your escape. The adventures last around 90 minutes as after the 60 minute game you can chat about your experience in our luxurious lounge area over a nice cup of tea and then dress up in period costume for photos.

This experience is unique and unlike any other interactive adventure games anywhere in the world.
