11 Best Escape Rooms in Melbourne

Looking for something a little different for your next get-together? Escape Rooms are a great way to spend an evening with your buddies, work friends, or loved ones. They’re immersive, adrenaline-fueled, and sometimes a little scary. Most of all it’s a great team-building activity that promotes teamwork and allows you to disconnect from your phones and the outside world and reconnect with your friends and family. These are the best escape rooms Melbourne has to offer.

Enter an alternate reality at Ukiyo. This escape room in Melbourne is regularly updated, and the newest escape room, Kuebiko: The Crumbling Prince, is like being dropped into a Studio Ghibli film with its mystical and mysterious world filled with demi-gods and Japanese-style garden setting. It’s immersive and interactive, but most importantly it’s story-driven and not just a bunch of meaningless puzzles flung together haphazardly to get to the end. Combine that with the set design, state of art tech to make this one of the best escape rooms Melbourne has to offer.
