Neighbourhood: Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked for our family to celebrate my sons 14th birthday. A family of five with kids aged 14, 11 and 8. The 8year old was able to participate although got a bit bored by the end as she wasn’t able to help us when we got stuck. 11 year old loved it as did mum and dad. Birthday boy had great fun too.

Was fairly expensive for our family to do and a drink afterwards added to that expense - but was needed by us all.

Room where the bar is, was great - games for you to play and had a fun atmosphere.

Loved our recent visit to Trapt. With a group of 3, the Wayward Wizard room was a great challenge. We got through the main quest and "escaped" in a pretty jam packed 30 minutes and then got through maybe half of the side quest/extra puzzles in the remaining time. Wish we could have kept going!
3-4 would be the ideal group size for this room.

This was our first time experiencing an Escape Room. What a hoot! Trying to work out the clues to get the key to unlock the escape door is not at all easy. We had our family of 5 in our attempted escape but I can see how it would be fun with two as well. It was nice to while away some time at the bar afterwards. No shortage of other games to play while you're having a drink too. All in all it was a great experience.

This is our fourth visit to Trapt as an experienced team of two. We were disappointed by the SPACE room, and would rate it more like a 2.5.

As a disclaimer - we don’t like rooms that are all locks and combinations and number based puzzles. We personally find them a bit dull. This room has a couple of fun elements, but in general, not our cup of tea. Decor and vibe also could be better…

We really dislike the hint system in Trapt, as the game master comes into the room and breaks all immersion.
We really feel they need to change back to just having the screen and/or walkie talkies.

One video puzzle is VERY slow to loop and wastes a lot of time. Wasting time is not a good way to make the room “harder”.. it’s just a waste of money. Another puzzle was almost inaudible.

We contacted the owner/manager about our issues and they were very responsive and had great customer service. We were offered a voucher to the value of our room due to some things going wrong, which we appreciate. The staff on the day were also very enthusiastic and friendly.

We’ll be back to see these guys when we’re back in Melbourne for the circus room.

The short version - Best overall escape room venue experience I have ever had.

The extended version - My friend and I spontaneously booked an escape room here while visiting from Sydney and the whole experience was an absolute treat. I've done many escape rooms in the past and the one we did here was right up there with the best. Creative ideas, challenging puzzles, fun theme - overall a well balanced and very enjoyable room. The bonus puzzles are great as you really get every bit of value out of your time and the experience.

While the escape room is why we came, the atmosphere, drinks and friendliness of the staff is what made us stay hours longer. The bar menu is fantastic (and also appropriately themed to the rooms!), the drinks are delicious and the space has a very cool vibe.

Jack is a legend and went the extra mile to ensure we enjoyed our stay, even preparing tailor-made drinks and providing suggestions for other places to go in Melbourne. Maddie took great care of us too. I will definitely be visiting TRAPT in my future Melbourne visits and I highly recommend this place to everyone. Thanks for having us!

My partner and I came to Trapt and did the S. P. A. C. E. room together. It was an unusual room and isn't for beginners, but as escape room regulars we really liked it. Unfortunately the experience was marred by several of the technical components of the room being faulty. We completed the "main" puzzle and due to the tech issues we were offered extra time to try the "bonus" puzzles. They looked really interesting but we had both lost a lot of enthusiasm/immersion due to the staff having to intervene and reset our equipment.

The staff member was fantastic and the room itself had a ton of potential.

Hi, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review, it's great to hear that you enjoyed the room. I am sorry that there were some technical difficulties it is one of the problems of anything that relies heavily on the use of technology but we are always looking for ways to remove these issues. I would love to hear what specifically was the issue so if it is not something we have looked at fixing already that we can start doing that straight away. As such if you could send me an email to michael@trapt.in it would be greatly appreciated. I am glad that we were able to offer you extra time as well and also that you enjoyed the service we were able to provide, hopefully we can see you again.

We visited here and were so excited but unfortunately our mood changed even before we arrived after a use call from Th e staff member causing us of being late, when it went even our booking time yet.

Our mood got even worse when greeted by the pile of rubbish at the front and the less than excited staff member. He seriously brought down our whole experience.

He did say the other room may be too hard and recommended do the Wizard of Oz room instead. It really wasn’t what we expected at all. The room was not well done making it not much of an experience at all, my cousin describe it like a prep classroom as d honestly wouldn’t know it’s wizard of oz - there wasn’t even a brick pattern on the Yellow BRICK road!!! It just looked unprofessional and amateur.

It was also hard to get help, you just had to wave at the camera but we couldn’t get help for ages and a clue. We didn’t finish in time, it was quite confusing and were weren’t told until over halfway through we were supposed to go back to previous rooms and areas for clues on a room further along. There was a lot that just didn’t make sense and I’d be shocked if anyone worked it out without help. One of the clues was even wrong!!! And it turned out we were on the right track!

Although we were desperate for a drink and thought the bar looked cool when we entered we couldn’t wait to get out of there and felt so uncomfortable staying there with the rude staff member.

Would not recommend at all. Not a good escape room and staff member Michael was rude, unhelpful, arrogant, condescending and patronising.

We couldn’t wait to escape this place.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, it is always useful to hear feedback from our customer even when it is not as positive as we would like. I am particularly sorry that you found anything about me personally unpleasant, it is never my intention. I believe I remember your group, you were originally booked for Space and most of your group had not played before is that correct? Space is our room that is least suitable for beginner groups and although Wizard of Oz is also a very challenging room it was the only one available that would fit your group and it allowed us to give you the full amount of time instead of a shortened time period in Space as even though we called you just before your start time to make sure you were on the way you arrived late enough that we had had to start the timer to stop the room running late, this made Wizard of Oz a much better option as you could then play the full time limit in a room that is less overwhelming for newer groups. I am also sorry that you struggled with the room, Wizard of Oz is still a very challenging escape room but not unique among our rooms that you need to go back into previous rooms to solve puzzles, you also need to escape out a similar way that you came in so we don't generally tell people before they enter about the need to go back into previous rooms but we will have to consider doing that for future groups. I am sorry that you didn't enjoy yourself but we would love to have you back to provide you with a better experience, if that is something you would consider please feel free to send me an email to michael@trapt.in

I just did the alchemy at home experience, and it was amazing! Definitely well worth it, a lot of fun with very interesting puzzles, and our host on zoom did an awesome job guiding us through. The combination of internet and in room puzzles, made the at home experience even better. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who was interested and likes escape rooms!

Hi Nicholas, Sorry that we have taken so long to respond to this, we are super happy that you enjoyed the Alchemy at Home experience. We really enjoyed running it through the lockdown and it was a bit sad to see it go. I hope that you have come in and played one of our physical rooms now that all the lockdowns have lifted!

Great time at the escape room, but my advice is to practice on some slightly easier ones first. Not complaining, just letting people know we found this to be quite challenging. Friendly staff, very cool set up. Looking forward to going back and trying the other rooms available.

Hi Mikey, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a great review! We tend to agree with you that people should try our more accessible rooms first, Wizard of Oz is super fun but extremely challenging especially for groups that haven't played many escape rooms before. Great to hear that you are planning on returning, if you have any feedback as to how we could make that visit even better we would love to hear from you via email bookings@trapt.in
