26 March 2020 – Coronavirus (COVID-19) update:

Dear guests,

Due to the recent government announcement, The Mystery Rooms (along with the entire entertainment industry) will be closed until further notice. We have lost 100% of our income and all staff have lost their jobs.

To date we have reached out to all customers with future bookings and issued a gift voucher directly to hold that balance to enjoy your game at a future opportunity – if you have not received that voucher please check your junk/spam first – then send a Gift Voucher inquiry to [email protected]

To all our customers that have written to us in support – your words have been so kind and we are eternally grateful. We hope to get through this situation and provide more entertainment to you in the near future.

The situation now is that The Mystery Rooms has exhausted all financial options to borrow further funds to repay customers at this time. In response, Jodie and I will be drawing down our personal Superannuation to repay anyone who does not wish to support the business at this time.

The government advice is that this is available to draw down immediately after they have processed the quarterly BAS statements at the end of April.

If this occurs as promised, any customers not wanting to support the business will receive 100% refund with no fees applied.

Until then please stay safe, and if like us you have lost your livelihoods – please don’t lose hope.

Common Melbourne Escape Room Questions!

The Mystery Rooms offers a very different experience to most other escape room games. The early objectives were quite self explanatory, however as the idea developed we decided that at no point would you ever be locked in.

We lead you into 1 of 4 themed environments with a challenge to locate and retrieve a specific item. To do this, you must observe clues, reveal secrets, use items and often even engage with ”the locals”. If you really need to know more, these types of games probably aren’t for you! In short, you need to be willing to engage your minds, have some fun, and forget about everything else for 60 minutes!

To see our list of escape room games click here

Adult $45 – Children $37.50 – Family Ticket (4 Adults + 4 Children) $180 – Young Children (U8) free with groups.

To book any of our escape rooms you must do so online through the game page.

Do not worry about confirming your player numbers, you may adjust on arrival so long as you still cover the minimum 4 player cover charge. Extra players can pay on arrival and likewise refunds will be issued for a drop in numbers.

Our opening hours for public games are as follows:

Monday – Tuesday: CLOSED

Wednesday – Friday: 6pm – 10pm

Weekends: 10am – 10pm

We can accommodate Private Functions outside of these hours – please visit our Team Building Page.

Escape Rooms are mostly games for Adults and mature minded children (Aged 10+) who enjoy using their brains, creativity and problem solving skills. They are not playgrounds!

We often have younger children accompany as part of family groups – this can also be enjoyable and provided you have at least 4 paying players, children under the age of 14 would be free in a family group.

For other ideas of activities for children – please visit our blog.

The minimum room charge stands at 4 players.

If you are an absolute escape room enthusiast and want to play with 2 or 3 players, there’s physically not much stopping you providing you still pay the minimum escape room hire of 4 players. However, our Escape Room games are designed to entertain larger groups – we don’t just accept larger groups, we create puzzle flows that engage larger groups.

We don’t have private parking at our escape rooms, but there are 2 hour free parking spaces in most of our surrounding roads. During busy hours (weekends) it is recommended arriving an extra 5 minutes earlier to ensure you find a park.
