Best escape rooms in Melbourne

We spent our fair share of timing in the wedding game to know that celebrations come in all different shapes and sizes. For some people, it’s a small and intimate affair with just their nearest and dearest that is heavily steeped in tradition. For others, it’s an opportunity to throw the rule book out the window and do the complete opposite of everything we’ve come to expect from the Hollywood blockbusters. 

 

Whatever it is calling your name, our job at Wicked Hens is to help you put together a celebration that ticks all your boxes – and more! This simple goal has seen us help plan parties for people from all walks of life, to suit every taste and for every budget too. In more recent times, we’ve actually noticed more and more people seeking out options that steer a little away from the old classics and towards some more creative options. 

One of our most recent favourite options for those seeking to go down this pathway is an escape room experience. It’s the perfect activity to bring the entire gang together, bring out the laughs and create a lifetime supply of memories. Afterall, who wouldn’t want to be locked in a room with all their nearest and dearest, with no way out until you’ve cracked a seemingly impossible code? 

Looking for something a little different and fun for your hen’s party? Want to visit the best escape rooms in Melbourne while you’re celebrating your upcoming wedding? Read on to hear our top picks of escape rooms across Melbourne. 

 

Top 5 escape rooms in Melbourne

 

Ukiyo Melbourne 

Ukiyo is simply another universe. There really is no other way to put it. The Brunswick based escape room is regularly updated, which means you’re guaranteed to walk away with a completely different experience every single time. Last time we visited; the featured escape room was Kuebiko: The Crumbling Prince. The difference with this immersive and interactive experience is that it’s story-driven, not just a bunch of puzzles flung together. When you combine this unique approach with the top-notch set design, state-of-the-art tech and ultra-creative concepts, it’s one of the best escape rooms on offer in Melbourne. Being located in Brunswick, means you can easily head out to one of the many local bars, pubs or clubs afterwards to celebrate your win or drown your loss in a pool of cocktails.

Rush Escape Game 

Just like the name would suggest, Rush Escape Room will give you the ultimate adrenaline rush – no matter if it’s your first or twentieth time visiting an escape room. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to test your wits as you coordinate your time and complete time-based challenges to escape the room. Each of the six spaces has a completely different theme, which ensures there will be something for absolutely everyone invited to your party. One of our favourite rooms is undoubtedly ‘The Last Knight Rises’, where you can prove your smarts as a knight of the round table. Whether you walk away with a win or a loss, it’ll be a once in a lifetime experience that everyone can hold onto forever. What more could you want than that?

If you’re bringing along a bigger gang, don’t be scared off by the group sizes here. You can easily split everyone up into smaller groups and send everyone head to head against each other.
