Game room designs were created by a physics teacher in Bern, Switzerland in 2012. To play, players enter the rooms in teams and will have 1 hour to work together to solve puzzles, crack codes, and find hidden objects and rooms in an attempt to escape. The 5 rooms feature individual themes – Gaol Break, The Black Queen, The Mad Scientist, The Speakeasy, and Mafia. There are both Standard (2-7 players) and Duel (8-14 players) formats of the games.

Depending on the size of the teams, players can expect to pay $28-$38 each per game, with vouchers also available for the perfect gift. It is recommended for an older audience with children under 16 needing to be accompanied by an adult. Its global success is largely attributed to its popularity with corporate team building events, students, parties, sporting clubs and family outings.

Barossa Valley Chocolate Company

Located in the heart of the Barossa Valley just outside of Tanunda, the Barossa Valley Chocolate Company is the latest tourist attraction to call the wine region home.

There is something for everyone to enjoy, from watching chocolatiers making the artisan, handmade chocolate through the huge viewing windows in the retail area, to chocolate-making classes in the special experience room, and a specially curated chocolate and wine pairing experience in the cellar door. The icecreamery serves freshly made gelato and Benni’s Café has a delicious menu of locally sourced food that is both fancy and fun. All of this can be enjoyed inside or on the spacious deck overlooking the spectacular water feature. The complex also has a private cellar, an amphitheatre and landscaped areas for fun times! There are always new events and experiences to be had at Barossa Valley Chocolate Company, so keep an eye on the Facebook page to stay up to date with all the announcements and inside-information!

The Creative Experiences Workshop

The Creative Experiences workshop is designed for children 5 – 15 years old. Through various disciplines we explore the planetarium with a unique curriculum inspired by Roman mythology and the solar system. The curriculum is divided into age groups with different focuses for each.

The lessons develop skills in music, dance, design and collaboration, all culminating in a student-faculty performance with Artists By Any Other Name, a New York City based interdisciplinary ensemble. The performance is a marriage of music and dance celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. Students also have the opportunity to attend an Adelaide Symphony Orchestra rehearsal as well as showcase their talent as an individual or in a group ensemble at ASO’s Grainger Studio.

The Bigger Book of Pirates – A Dragon’s Tale
Join Captain Salmonbeard and his reluctant crew during the holidays at the South Australian Maritime Museum for another perilous adventure on the seven seas.

The crew are going to having to write their own book of piracy as they’ve strayed so far off course. And according to pirate legend, that book can only be written in dragon’s blood… The Bigger Book of Pirates is an adventure packed with surprises, on an ocean of possibility. Produced by the ever popular HeapsGood Productions, The Bigger Book of Pirates features performers from both HeapsGood and the critically acclaimed Adelaide Youth Theatre.
