PACKHUNTS - Adventure around Manly

A Packhunt is Rooms Eight's own unique variation on a scavenger hunt. It's an outdoor challenge which is part scavenger hunt, part Escape Room and part adventure movie.

Your group will need to follow the story on your phone by downloading the ClueKeeper app, and head to various locations around Manly solving puzzles whilst unlocking and revealing more clues hidden within backpacks and bags you'll be carrying.

The ClueKeeper app will allow you to work at your own pace by selecting hints, or skipping clues as you go.

You'll be awarded points for each correct answer, with a possible maximum score of 200 available.

On the day you'll start at Room Eight and be given all the gear you need for your hunt along with the start code to begin. The hunt will be finished either when the time is up, or when you return successfully to Room Eight.

When you make your booking you'll be given more information on what to bring on the day.

Minimum deposits payable at time of booking: The Buckens, $100; The Crooked Eight, $50; Mindcraft, $100.

Please note, Packhunts are an all weather activity. We recommend you wear wet weather gear in the event of inclement weather. If you wish to reschedule your Packhunt due to weather, this can be arranged  by calling our bookings team on (02) 9976 3509 no less than 4 hours before your scheduled session.

The Buckens pack hunt at Room Eight escape rooms Manly Beach, Sydney



Last night you and your friends were part of an epic Buckens (combined Bucks and Hens party) for your two best friends Brad and Jen.


Due to some ill conceived planning, today is the day of the wedding. And as well as nursing hangovers like you wouldn’t believe, you’ve also realised that you’ve misplaced both the wedding rings which you were entrusted with last night (more poor planning).


You’ll need to work as a team to piece together the events of last night, and come up with the rings before today's big event.

The Crooked Eight pack hunt at Room Eight escape rooms Manly Beach, Sydney



It’s 1852 and NSW is caught in the grip of Gold Rush fever.

Convicts previously resigned to seeing out their sentence in poverty have had a reversal of fortune with the first nuggets found west of the Blue Mountains in Orange, and now stand a chance of making it rich.
Those not so lucky find more lucrative opportunities on the other side of the law, as bandits and thieves.

One such gang of eight made a name for themselves with illicit activities and an uncanny knack of evading the law. Little was known about them other than their emblem left at crime scenes consisting of a single 8 on an angle.

And so was born the legend of the ‘Crooked Eight’.

Their reign of terror reached its peak following their relocation to Manly Beach, where they locked horns with Henry Gilbert Smith, the founder of the district and fleet of steamships. What happened next is the stuff of legends.

Now it’s your chance to get your hands on a priceless treasure, and uncover a secret that’s been buried for over 150 years that will have the whole world reeling...
