About
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.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: South Melbourne
South Melbourne hosts the city’s oldest continuous market, founded in 1867. Rows of neatly arranged fruit, vegetables and flowers splash yellows, greens and reds along the entire perimeter, where the whole neighborhood gathers for Saturday feasts. Inside the hall, shoppers hover over the mouth-watering displays of delicatessens and specialty food shops. Further in, a bazaar full of giftware, clothing, and kitchen utensils completes the scene. Take a break to walk the wide and shady streets and stroll along the Victorian-era heritage terrace houses. But return to the market in time for some paella, simmering in three large frypans on the footpath and served straight onto your plate.

Underwhelmed
Aug 2021
We did Mine Escape and were underwhelmed. Nice puzzels etc. but all a bit tired (host had to pop in to stick something up, colours faded etc) the description included smoke and flashing lights -and we had neither. Also dragged a bit (we're novice) and repeatedly asking for tips/direction when stuck, but a few times had no reply so just searching when already stuck. We were in for more like 90 mins - appreciated being able to escape but dragged. We were 5 people (2 kids). Maybe better fun with 2-3?

We did mine escape and fractured. I prefer fractured, it was a bit longer and had some novelty tasks which were enjoyable to do. The atmosphere within the rooms is pretty good and it’s a bit cheaper than other escape rooms in Melbourne.

Brilliant Escape Room. Must visit!
Jan 2020 • Friends
My friends and I travel around doing escape rooms, and at ERM, we did all three. We did the mine escape room first and really enjoyed the theming, storyline and creative puzzles that aligned with the room style. We loved it. If you are looking to try an escape room - this is a good starter room. Kellers Magic Emporium - bit more difficult. Theming was also great and very immersive (bit creepy - will get your heart racing but nothing terrifying or too gory in my opinion).

Our favourite was fractured. This room gave us literal chills. The storyline, ingenuity and immersiveness of this room is 10/10 and you can tell that the people who designed this are experience. So many puzzles were out of the box crazy and fun. We loved it so much.

The staff were friendly, especially our gamemaster Matt.

Definately recommend ERM.

Mining Room

We had the best time! Exceeded our expectations. Chris was fantastic - he gave us every opportunity to solve things ourselves before pointing us in the right direction. Was our first escape room experience and hopefully won't be our last. Awesome!!!

Fantastic Experience
Nov 2019
We went as a couple to complete their 'Mine' escape room and what a fun time we had.

You're able to book for groups up to 6 however you can also book for 2 and complete the clues without being added to another small group which is great. more than 2/3 would make the experience less fun and a bit more waiting around.

Lots of tricks/puzzles and things to solve. They have cameras in the room so can see if you're stuck and you can check in on a walkie talkie if you need a quick hand.

highly recommend!

Magician’s Emporium
Oct 2019 • Friends
My friends and I came to do their Magician’s Emporium room. It was really good and there was a great variety of puzzles. We found this mix of puzzles good - some that were trickier than others. The props were all great as well. Such an entertaining experience, we have done all the rooms here and hopefully they make some more. This is not a room for kids/young families as there are some adult themes that could frighten children.

ONE OF THE BEST GAMES I'VE EVER PLAYED!
Oct 2019 • Friends
Having played over 100 escape rooms, not much surprises me anymore, but FRACTURED absolutely blew me away!

Owen and his team have created a game that helps players to learn and understand a story through audio, visuals, and very cleverly designed puzzles. It tugs at your emotions, and leaves you feeling like you've experienced so much more than just an escape room.

Over a weekend of playing escape rooms in Melbourne, this is the one that was on everyone's lips. You absolutely MUST play it! Should be illegal not to.

I would also like to thank our wonderful game master, Simon, who was charming and fun, which only added to the experience. So thank you Simon for being awesome!

You guys are amazing!!! ❤❤❤

Was mediocre
Aug 2019
One of the easier escape rooms around. Good for minimum intelligence. The place is low key kinda dodgey. But also kind of adds to the vibe that you think u might be kidnapped.
