What if we have fewer than the minimum players?2020-06-12T11:54:43+10:00

Minimum and Maximum player limits are provided based on what we believe to give the best team experience both in terms of physical space and individual player engagement.

The minimum price for the room must always be paid but if you want to play our games with fewer than the minimum players you may do so.

What if we have more than the maximum players?2020-06-12T11:53:36+10:00

Our maximum player limits are what we recommend you should ever trying to play a game as a team.

On occasions (sometimes birthday parties or other special events) teams may request to bring 1 extra player along. Any more than 1 extra player and we will insist that you divide into separate teams and play simultaneous games.

Do I need experience to play?2020-06-12T11:53:00+10:00

If you are new to Escape Rooms we recommend taking on one of our Beginner or Intermediate games to get started.

Whilst our rooms might range in difficulty/complexity and size of challenge, there is no pre-requisite knowledge or experience required for any individual challenge other than The Grimm Finale. To be eligible to book The Grimm Finale game you must have collected your 3 Grimm Agent Badges.

For more information on badges, collecting points and membership levels please visit our Rewards Page.

Are the games suitable for kids?2020-06-12T11:51:39+10:00

Our games are designed for players with a sense of humour and a desire to enjoy themselves. We accept groups of children aged 10 and over though we require one adult to play if any player is under the age of 14 years old.

If your looking to arrange a Birthday Party group booking – please refer to our Birthday Party Page for more information.

We don’t accept groups of children younger than 10 years of age, but children under 10 can still enjoy the games as part of a family group.

Our games are adjustable based on skill level, age & experience and our games masters will ensure that they offer assistance (if needed/requested) to help you to complete the games within the allotted time frame.

How can I book The Grimm Finale?2020-06-12T11:50:55+10:00

Most of our games (and other good escape rooms) sell out over a week in advance. If we are fully booked already – why not check out Man of Many’s Best Escape Rooms in Melbourne or visit one of our favorite local venues nearby: Escape Room Melbourne, or Rush Escape Games!

Where can I park? (Fitzroy)2020-06-12T11:42:53+10:00

Parking in Fitzroy is becoming more difficult the busier it gets – especially at weekends.

Locally, in Napier Street, George St, Greeves St and surrounding streets, there is free 2 hour parking but spaces are limited and often very busy. We recommend to either travel by public transport or to plan ahead and familiarise yourselves with where you plan to park.

During busy hours (weekends) it is recommended arriving an extra 5 minutes earlier to ensure you find a park as we are unable to delay subsequent guests. (Please see our terms and conditions page for more details)

Where can I park? (Collingwood)2020-06-04T10:47:54+10:00

Parking in Collingwood is becoming more difficult the busier it gets.

Locally, in Easey Street, Budd Street and surrounding streets, there is free 2 hour parking but spaces are limited and often very busy. We recommend to either travel by public transport or to plan ahead and familiarise yourselves with where you plan to park.

During busy hours (weekends) it is recommended arriving an extra 5 minutes earlier to ensure you find a park as we are unable to delay subsequent guests. (Please see our terms and conditions page for more details)

How many players can I have? (Collingwood)2020-06-12T11:43:56+10:00

The Collingwood Escape Room – SkyTrain, has 4 games suitable for groups of 2-4 players.

The Haunted Chamber game is bigger than the other Collingwood games and we therefore permit up to 6 players to play in this game.

Personal space inside an escape room is an important contributor to the enjoyment of the games, and while we permit up to 6 players in The Haunted Chamber game, we recommend looking at our Fitzroy Escape Room if you want a game for a larger group of 4-10 players.

How many players can I have? (Fitzroy)2020-06-04T10:47:02+10:00

The Fitzroy Escape Room – Grimm HQ, has 4 games recommended for groups of 4-8 players.

We get asked a lot if groups can expand to 10 players and so while we permit this, we still recommend being aware that things will get busy.

Personal space inside an escape room is an important contributor to the enjoyment of the games and therefore we list the games sizes in order of floor space below:

If you only have 2 or 3 players we recommend booking a game at our Collingwood Escape Room instead. You are permitted to play our Fitzroy games (paying the minimum 4 player charge) but we don’t recommend this – it would be very difficult to experience all of the puzzles within the 60 minute window.
