My group of friends (4 adults) checked out Labyrinth Escape Rooms’ Insane Asylum room in September 2015, about 2 weeks after they opened. This was our eighteenth escape room in Sydney (so far!).
We found the place very easily. They have plenty of off-street parking right in front of the premises, which was great.
They currently have just the one room, but they are putting the finishing touches on their second room, Mad Scientist, which should open very shortly. They also have plans to open a third room in the future, the theme of which sounds really cool (and unlike any other theme we have heard of in Sydney). I'll leave it to the owners to announce their third theme in due course.
First off, I'll say what I enjoyed most about Insane Asylum at Labyrinth Escape Rooms:
As for some of the improvements that could be made to Insane Asylum, there really is very little to report here. We had some issues with a multi-directional speed lock in one of the puzzles (which just wouldn’t open for us despite us having the right combination). This was a shame because it slowed us up in the early section of the game (and caused me to panic and ask for more clues than I otherwise might have). Speed locks are always temperamental (although it certainly didn't ruin our experience).
My only other comment is that this room is pretty challenging, so first timers would be pretty hard pressed to escape without a hint or two (we had 3 hints so don't feel bad in asking for them - better that than to only progress part way through the room!).
This is a great room and I'm really pleased that western Sydney has such a great escape room outfit on offer now. We loved the room and I’ve received feedback from 3 other people (friends and readers of this blog) who all agree that this is up there with the best rooms in Sydney.
