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.

    I held my child's 11th Birthday heya and it was great. Good value, great entertainment and great staff assisting.

    Pay for a cup of treat and coffee and snacks, might be pricey for some people though. I go in the morning so the cats are full of energy, and they climb all over you if you open the treat box. There toilet inside too so is very convenient. Staff volunteer there are very friendly, when you first enter there might be a chance you get greet by a professional cat with a colorful tiny tie on it.

    This was my first time doing in-door rock climbing. I booked this as a date for me & my partner while we was on holidays in Melbourne. It was so much fun! It was harder than it looks but enjoyable. Highly recommend!

    We did the Gaol Break room, we were a little nervous as had only done escape rooms as part of a bigger group (was just 2 of us). Without spoiling the room i felt like it worked perfectly and the staff flashed up a hint on a screen when we got stuck.
    Room had some clever puzzles, and staff were excellent. Will be back on our next trip to Melbourne to try another room.

    Did the Annabelle room,
    The room was scary, and well put together, the challenges were fun, we escaped with only one hint (we didn't find it too challenging)
    The staff were good at the start, however when we escaped we felt they weren't really interested in talking to us, just said thanks cya later, (most times the staff at other places have been keen for a genuine chat about the room and what not) was all good though I suppose we paid for the escape room not to talk to the staff,
    Was a good room though, definitely the favourite out of the 5 or so I've done
    Definitely worth doing, I haven't done the others there but if you are going to do one here pick this one you won't be let down

    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.

    A lovely cinema in the Melbourne CBD. It's an unusual scenario in a way because you turn up to the address and while there may be a sign saying Kino Cinema it's not immediately apparent where they cinema actually is. Until you happen to glance down into a food court style area which is in a depressed area and see the place.

    There are several cinemas and the place does tend to be one of those that participates in various film festivals so it can tend to have a rather eclectic batch of films on at any one time.

    Inside the cinemas are really quite well appointed which makes for a nice experience.

    The place has the usual sort of snack bar out the front and you'll have no trouble finding a place to eat if that's what you are after before/after your film.

    MC was great. Four comedians - two were very good, two okay. A good night out, good value for the ticket price. Had a good pub meal beforehand.

    This activity/museum was absolutely amazing. It was a complete immersive experience into an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D-like training facility complete with actual props from the movies themselves in glass cases. Many interactive experiences as well and epic photo opportunities. Would describe them all, but wouldn't want to spoil something so amazing. We are all huge Marvel fans and this was the highlight of our trip. As soon as I caught a glimpse of the "A" logo while riding by in a tram, I knew I had to go there, and it was definitely worth it. Wonderfully detailed captions (in case you forgot some things and don't do regular reruns of the movies) everywhere too to explain. Don't need to be Marvel-obsessed to enjoy this experience, the captions do a great job of explaining stuff. Suitable and fun for all ages.

    Went for some bowling, we were told we could come back, we weren’t keen on waiting too long and I think they could tell so they moved some things around and made the waiting time shorter for us whilst we had a drink. I had a massive strawberry mojito drink, it was delicious!! Definitely recommend trying it, or sharing it with a mate as it’s so big.

    My partner and I were both offered a free game of laser tag for my birthday, once finished we were offered another. This was really kind considering they were really busy they really didn’t have to do this!

    I will be returning next time we are in Melbourne that’s for sure.

    First time there and did 18 holes. I liked the second course more than the first. More tv theme and the artwork holes were cool.

    What a fantastic evening. Myself and 4 girlfriends loaded into a car, team name, secret ID's and badges arranged and headed to the showgrounds ready for a night of challenges.

    There was music playing and from the moment we arrived there was excitement in the air. The team was great at building the hype. Great puzzels. So much fun! We will definitely be back again

    I attended a board games night in the upstairs games room. This place is fantastic - well worth your time and table fee. Great atmosphere, great amenities. Love the fact that you can rent a locker and stash your board games, so you don't have to drive them back and forth every week. If I lived in Melbourne, I know I'd spend a lot of time here. Makes me want to get back into pen and paper roleplaying games as well.
