    Family fun at its best
    A great immersive experience for the whole family. Our 8,6 and 5yr olds all had a blast. We all loved The Pharmacy, we set the kids to work on finding keys and clues while the adults worked on some of the more complex challenges. There was something for everyone. Staff were very professional and the room was great. There is also a great games shop on site for the board game lover. Highly recommended!

    Entertainment in town and out of the cold
    So much fun, a great spot to get out of the cold and have some fun. Multiple rooms set up so you can have it to yourselves in a group. Awesome hour or so. Remember to also checkout the great brain challenges and board games in the shop as well.

    Perfectly themed game with great story
    We had a group of 4 adults doing The Pharmacy. It was fantastic! Great balance of different puzzle types, good flow and there was always something for everyone to do. The styling and ambience are amazing and the staff add a fantastic touch by being in character throughout the whole experience. The puzzles and clues add to the story as you progress through the rooms and the game closes off with a clear conclusion to the storyline. We loved it!

    Wow! One of the best escape rooms I've ever done.
    Wow! One of the best escape rooms I've ever done. The Pharmacy was very enjoyable and exceptionally well done. We were determined to make it all the way to the end through multiple challenges/rooms and some clever surprises. Loved it!

    Pharmacy room has great tech and puzzles flow!
    My niece and I did the Pharmacy escape room which has been set up in the asylum’s actual pharmacy. The staff were great (awesome games shop btw!) our in- character intro also v impressive. There were four rooms, with a good mix of puzzles- possibly could have been more? The flow was good. I really enjoyed the tech - can’t describe that would give the game away!!!

    Spooky Challenge
    Our host was enthusiastic, charismatic and knowledgable about the asylum. The escape room was well thought out and eerily authentic. We were informed about all the elements of the room that were relics from the asylum's heyday. The room had a "spook factor" that would be hard to replicate. The game itself was well thought out. Challenging, but flowed well. I would highly recommend "The Pharmacy'

    Spooky Pharmacy
    We really enjoyed this escape room. One of the best yet. Loved Matron taking us to the Pharmacy that was a great start. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend this room as lots of interesting stuff to work out. We are two old codgers but we managed to escape with four minutes to go.

    Great experience. Friendly people
    I was down for cup weekend in Beechworth and checked out one of their escape rooms. I loved it so much my group and I immediately did the second one they offer afterwards. We then spent ages shopping all of their games (impressive collection!) with some great advice on the best ones to buy. All of the staff there were so nice and they also had very cute dogs. Will definitely return again when they release a new room

    Take your thinking pills before entering The Pharmacy!
    A fully emmersive and enjoyable experience. Definitely required a team effort putting heads together to work out the various clues. No time to dilly dally or be concerned about anything else when the clock is ticking down! Highly recommended this and will be back to do the other rooms.

    Truly exceptional
    The ultimate experience for escape room first-timers and veterans alike. The game masters strive to get you the best experience imaginable, so there are no penalties for the occasional hint or prompt and they are quite forgiving with the timers. Three absolutely incredible, intricate, immersive and story-rich rooms to solve, set in a beautiful and historic environment. I can never find enough excuses to do the rooms again

One of the best escape rooms we’ve ever done! The staff were incredibly helpful and kind, explaining everything really well to make sure we would be comfortable with the room. The puzzles were really fun, incredibly detailed and clever, and the set up was fantastic! We’ve done lots of rooms and were delighted to have brand new puzzle types to solve. Congrats to the Mayday team for such a well designed room. Our only complaint is that we didn’t have time on our travels to do all the rooms!
