Escape Quest was founded in 2014 by Husband and wife team, Gareth and Anne-Marie Ireland.
Bringing together their respective Technology and Management Consulting backgrounds with a shared passion for Queenstown and its pioneering, gold rush era, Gareth and Anne-Marie created immersive Escape Rooms steeped in Queenstown’s 1860s history, integrated technology and with a focus on logical, clever problem solving.
Escape Quest launched in the historic Mountaineer Building in Queenstown’s CBD with 5 escape rooms and 4 unique games. Escape Quest is unique to Queenstown, creates its own games and is locally owned.
In 2020, Escape Quest expanded to include VR escape games now operating in Queenstown’s Steamer Wharf building.
Escape Quest is also leveraging its strong game development capability to offer Play At Home (Print – Play – Escape) and Outdoor escape games later this year.
