Cipher Room

Live Challenge in Newtown & the Inner West

The puzzling pastime is sweeping the world, but not all escape rooms are created equal. The best ones are a labour of love with kinetic puzzles, creative plots and beautiful design, like Sydney’s Cipher Room, hand-built by wife-and-husband team Marise Watson and David Vella. The three vintage rooms here take on themes of ‘1950s film noir’, ‘cabin in the woods’ and ‘1940s espionage’.
