Three different cells to choose from

Each of the three cells has its own theme, providing a unique experience that transports participants to another time and place:

  • In Mitch’s Mate, you will need to work with your mate Mitch to escape from the cell using clues and puzzles.
  • In Wizard’s Prison, you will step into a wizard prison and cast a spell to escape.
  • Incarcerated and Infected will test your skills to discover what illness you have and how to cure it before it's too late.

The Escape Cells provide a fun and engaging way to learn about the history of Adelaide Gaol and the characters who once lived here. The experience challenges participants to think outside the box and work together to solve the puzzles.

But the experience doesn't end there. If you're interested in learning more about Adelaide Gaol's history, you can explore the site and wander through one of the creepiest buildings in South Australia. And if you're a true history buff, you can also learn about the life and crimes of famous juggler, Thomas Horton.
