Owner description: Escape Room Melbourne is Melbourne's original live room escape game! Working in a team of 2-6 people, you have 70 minutes to unravel the mystery of a hidden room, working together to solve a variety of quirky and inventive puzzles to escape. We have three rooms available - Melbourne's original Escape Room, Mine Escape , and Kellar's Magic Emporium. We can't give away too many secrets here, but to get an idea of what to expect you can check out our website for reviews and articles by Broadsheet, Timeout, The Age, and others, as well as features by SBS, Channel 10, ABC radio, and Fox FM (warning: may contain some spoilers!) Bookings are essential and can be made through our website. Please note we are a small independent business that is not affiliated with any of the Escape Room franchises operating in Melbourne, however we are happy to try and accommodate corporate bookings and larger groups where we can. Please feel free to contact us via email if you have any questions about availability, bookings, or the rooms themselves.

By far the best escape room experience that I have had. Each puzzle makes you smile at the creativity which has obviously gone into creating it. I did the room in a group of three and it was fascinating to see how each of us operated and co-operated. The amount of help that we received (via a walkie talkie) was just right, only when we were truly stuck were we offered a hint. The level of detail in the room was impressive and it was the best story I have seen unfold in an escape room, with a succulent twist half way through that brought our group even closer together and in the moment! Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect!

highly recommend the latest offering form the ERM team, kellar's magic emporium. don't want to give too much away, but the story, diversity of puzzles and team work required really makes this one memorable. a really eerie, haunted house vibe. there's nothing else like an escape room from these guys, you've got to give it a whirl.

As my first escape/puzzle room experience, I fell absolutely in love with it. The old-fashioned setting is great. The puzzles sharpen your practice attention to detail and make you think outside the box. It is a great exercise for you and a friend to practice your teamwork and how to complement each other's thinking. Props to our guide Mr. Ian Sharp who only dropped hints when we were truly stuck. Feels like something out of a Dan Brown novel or a well-designed puzzle video game. Highly recommended!

We have done 2 escape rooms at another venue and I have to say the mine escape was the best to date and it is not because we escaped :-) Great layout, challenging puzzles and apt clues given when needed.

Great way to get your teenager to communicate with you!

Located in Sth Melbourne with ample parking.

Immense fun and highly recommend, we will be back for more.

Our teenage kids had played the day before at Strike Bowling Melbourne, returned there again and then found the place at Paramount Mall - Escape Rooms International. We played two rooms with the kids. Great fun, really makes you work together and think outside the box. Would recommend for 13 years and up. Really enjoyed it.
