Birthday Party Ideas!

New Birthday Party Game coming soon!

To help you celebrate that special birthday we are about to unveil a new birthday party package. Please e-mail melbourne@themysteryrooms.com.au for more details while we await published details online!

The Mystery Rooms is a great idea for Birthday Parties from Age 10 – Adult.

Whether it is a Birthday, Mother’s Day, family visit or just passing an exam, we have provided the games for many group celebrations.

In addition to providing the biggest escape rooms in Melbourne, our games are also family friendly, meaning we contain no horror (except the game marked as horror – The Haunted House!) or offensive materials and therefore we continue to be the best choice for kids birthday parties.

Pricing is per player – though with groups of children under 14 years of age, we allow an additional 2 adult supervising players to attend free of charge.

Any children under the age of 13 must be supervised by a participating adult player!

If our FAQ section below does not answer your question – please e-mail us at play@themysteryrooms.com.au and we will respond as soon as possible.

Who can I bring under existing Legacy Family Ticket Bookings?2024-04-11T16:06:58+10:00

Previously, we generously offered a family ticket option allowing up to 4 adults (18+ and either parents or older siblings) and 4 children (17- and younger siblings) living within a single residence and legally considered an immediate family. We did this to acknowledge the pressures on genuine families finding regular activities to do with their children. We ran these sessions at cost and were proud that we were doing everything we could to make our games accessible.

As of June 2022, with the increasing debts mounting from the ongoing COVID situation we have had to discontinue family tickets.

Anyone with existing family ticket gift vouchers or bookings will of course be honoured, provided that they adhere to the previously published family ticket conditions below:

This ticket can not be used for birthday parties or where multiple families/households are looking to play games together. It really is that simple.

Examples of acceptable use of ticket include:

Mum, Dad, 19 year old son, 15 year old daughter, 12 year old daughter. (3 adults + 2 children)

Mum, 14 year old son, 13 year old son, 10 year old daughter (1 adult + 3 children)

Example of non-acceptable use of tickets include:

Mum, Dad, 19 year old son, 15 year old daughter, 12 year old daughter + 2 children friends. (3 adults + 4 children)
Reason: because all players are not from one immediate family.

Mum, 14 year old son, 12 year old son, 10 year old daughter + 1 child friend (1 adult + 4 children)
Reason: because all players are not from one immediate family.

Which games are best for a children’s birthday?2024-04-11T15:02:06+10:00

Although we accept younger players as part of family groups, generally our younger groups start at age 10. The skills needed to complete our games are not always the type that make it easier for older players. Often younger teams will think more creatively about paths to a solution, will not over complicate and are much faster and more comfortable in communicating their ideas – even if they sometimes need a bit of guidance!

At our Fitzroy location, the best games for larger groups are The Medieval Quest and The Lost Tomb. If you have a smaller team (2-6 players) we would steer you to School of Magic. If you need a larger group at this location you will need to book 2 separate games that run at the same time.

At our Geelong location, the best games for larger groups are Jurassic Island and Puddington’s Toyshop. If you have a smaller team (2-4 players) we would steer you to the School of Magic CUBE and Dragon Magic CUBE. If you need a larger group at this location you will need to book 2 separate games that run at the same time.

Can I add or remove players on the day?2024-04-11T15:35:49+10:00

Provided your group still falls inside the recommended player limits (both minimum and maximum) then you can adjust your player numbers on arrival. You do not need to e-mail us, nor call, nor commit in advance.

This applies to all recreational groups and birthday parties.

On arrival, your group price will be adjusted so you will either receive a refund direct to your credit card (automatically) or you will be required to settle the balance on arrival. Please note that we do not accept cash, nor American Express (or Diners Club Cards).
