GoQuest Arena Carrickmines
Indoor Challenge Zones
GoQuest is an indoor, multi challenge arena for families, teenagers and older children. GoQuest is not an escape room!
GoQuest Arena boasts 29 unique challenge rooms, and your task is to complete as many as you can against the clock during a fun filled session – working as a team! If you’re a party of more than one group you’re also working to compete against the other team(s), all scores are displayed on the live scoreboards!
The rooms are a mix of light physical, skill & mental challenges with three levels of difficulty so there really is something for everyone whatever their likes, dislikes, strengths, or skills!
The 29 Challenge Rooms are spread across 4 Themed Zones for you to discover – though you’re free to try any empty room at any time and try to get as many points as possible in the session.
When you enter a room you have a limited amount of time to try and figure out the clue and solve the challenge with a time limit – succeed and you’ll get the points for that room, fail and you can re try it or move on to attempt another. You’re on a quest to secure as many points as possible while having a whole lot of fun and trying to secure a place on their leaderboard!
A GoQuest Arena session lasts 1 and half hours including briefing, challenge arena activity and wrap up.
You take part in teams of 3 to 5 people and we can accommodate up to 18 teams per session (as we have 29 rooms!) . So we’re perfect for groups of anything from three to one hundred! With block bookings we can even take up to 180 over a 3-hour period (we stagger the times and manage the scoring for you, so all are still competing against each other).
It’s the best LIVE scoring, fully automated, indoor challenge adventure for friends, families, groups and corporates. GoQuest Arena is NOT an escape room – this is a challenge venue with a whopping 29 separate challenge rooms, and you get to explore and play as many of the challenges as you wish in your allocated time.
It’s ideal for those who enjoy TV shows such as The Cube, it’s your chance to show what you can do!
Did you know there are 60 points available at GoQuest Arena and so far only 3 groups have achieved this! Will you be next?! Try your luck here!
As of 2022 GoQuest Arena aim to introduce on average 5 totally new challenges per annum! Dragon’s Dilemma, their latest addition, is a physical challenge with a mental element and definitely worth a return trip if you’ve been before but missed it!
GoQuest Arena for Families
GoQuest Arena is the perfect activity for any family or group of families.
