Time Out Sydney
Next Level are a great outfit who really care about providing immersive and well-designed experiences. There are very few rooms in Sydney (or Australia) that will have you laughing out loud – both The Artefact and Ex Libris at Next Level will have you laughing, I guarantee it.

The Puzzle Design in Ex Libris is of the highest quality... So, do I recommend this room? Do I even need to answer? YES!
Esc Room Addict


Want an adventure that's just for you?

We design and build custom escape rooms, activities, and more! We’ve created pop-up escape rooms for movies, week-long activities for schools, and more.

I can’t thank you enough for your professionalism and the incredible work you put behind the rooms. The fan experience was incredible and the team at Roadshow and Warner/DC were blown away by your work. It really added some unique and special for our fans.

This was uncharted territory for all of us and I think you and your team should be incredibly proud for doing something that’s never been done before on this kind of scale. We would work with you again any day and would be happy to recommend you to any of our partners in need of similar activations.
