The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 neighbourhood 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.

We did the Mine escape room and it was really fun! We did it on medium and it was pretty challenging. The staff were really good and helpful when needed. It was a great time. Would highly recommend with a group of friends!

We did mine Escape room with another couple.
We actually got lost trying to find the venue!!
A 2 room puzzle.
Some parts were cool and exciting, while others a bit boring and didn’t make sense once we got the clue.
Host was friendly and helpful.

We came back to do Fractured after having completed their other rooms. The concept is very cool - you’re in the mind of a coma victim. Staff are very friendly and enthusiastic. The decor and props are perfectly done and very authentic. Puzzles are unique and engaging (not just locks and combinations!)

Unfortunately, despite the great room, we had a negative experience on the day. Our experience was cut short by an inattentive game master and a puzzle that didn’t work. The way this room is designed makes it possible to end much earlier than what you pay for if you fall behind. We think this is a huge flaw that should be fixed for an otherwise 5/5 room.

However, they did apologise and issue a refund. We will definitely be back if this company adds new rooms in future as they’re one of the best in Melbourne.

Average escape room, below average staff.
We did the magicians room, some interesting puzzles and some mundane the experience was mostly good. The problem was the staff, they seemed bored and uninterested; more annoying than this though was the fact that the female staff member kept interrupting our deducing to tell us the answer to the puzzle we were working on or the previous puzzle which we had already passed. Not sure if they have cameras since it was clear we had passed the thing she was telling us about. We didn’t ask for clues please don’t give them unless we’re running out of time.

I figured we must be behind schedule but no, we finished with approx 20-30 mins left, think they were trying to hurry us along so they could leave. Ruined the whole experience.

We did "Fractured" and really did not enjoy the experience at all. Promoted as a "difficult" room, it just didn't create an enjoyable experience for us, the puzzles were just obscure and not logical or deductable in our opinion.

We have done meany escape rooms, and got out on time the last six occasions, so its not as though we don't know how to drive puzzles or escape rooms.

We left 15 mins before time because we just wanted to get out of the place.

Challenging, but fun. Great way to spend an afternoon extending the old grey matter. Will definitely do another one when in town again.

This was so much fun. Great experience. Staff were excellent. The puzzles were challenging but helpful hints were always on hand. Challenges were very group friendly, everyone got to imput something. Can't wait to go again for a different room. 😊

We are reasonably intermediate escapists (~15 rooms under our belt). We did Kellars magic emporium. The rooms puzzles were great! It was linear and required logical thinking to solve the puzzles.

The two of us finished the room in about 50 of the allotted 70mins so if you are a seasoned escape room-er you may want to try Fractured instead.

In saying that we did love this room as it had a lot of cool and different elements we had not seen before.

Post the escape the staff were happy to have a good chat about the room which doesn’t always happen so that was great as well.

Definitely recommend.

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?
