Overview

Escape Room Melbourne is Melbourne's original live room escape game! Working in a team of 2-6 people, you have 70 minutes to unravel the mystery of a hidden room, working together to solve a variety of quirky and inventive puzzles to escape. We have three rooms available - Melbourne's original Escape Room, Mine Escape , and Kellar's Magic Emporium. We can't give away too many secrets here, but to get an idea of what to expect you can check out our website for reviews and articles by Broadsheet, Timeout, The Age, and others, as well as features by SBS, Channel 10, ABC radio, and Fox FM (warning: may contain some spoilers!) Bookings are essential and can be made through our website. Please note we are a small independent business that is not affiliated with any of the Escape Room franchises operating in Melbourne, however we are happy to try and accommodate corporate bookings and larger groups where we can. Please feel free to contact us via email if you have any questions about availability, bookings, or the rooms themselves.

This was an entertaining, thought provoking experience. I would recommend this for a group of up to 3 people. Their space is small so more than 3 would detract from the experience. The clues provide good brain teasers and there are lots of them. Well...More

It was a really fun experience for a group of 6. It was for my mother who is in her 80's and enjoys games and it got everyone interested. Thoroughly recommend for something a bit different.

Hi Vivian , it was $35 per person , and I agree with John they are small rooms we had 4 people . Maybe you could split the group and do 2 different escape rooms at the Same time Marina
