List of Escape Rooms in Melbourne



Escape Rooms have become a craze in Melbourne recently. They don't involve being locked in a room and watching endless episodes of Hogan's Heroes. Instead, a group of you go into a room and try and escape within a designated time (usually about 60 minutes) by solving a series of puzzles which can be multi-sensory, mathematical, lingual, spatial or even require very lateral thinking. If the time limit expires before you solve all the puzzles, you can still get out but with a little less respect and dignity.

Many of the puzzles are quite difficult and are more suited to groups of adults or a family with older children (at least 16 years old).

We have listed all the Escape Rooms in Melbourne with a view of their family friendliness. Prices are correct as at July 2016.
