Canberra's newest escape rooms - Escape Rooms Canberra now open
I’ve been in contact with Michael and Mitch from Escape Rooms Canberra. Yesterday was the grand opening of their business in Phillip ACT .
They are a standalone business, but have an affiliation with Owen Spears at Escape Room Melbourne, Australia’s first escape room outfit. They have opened up 2 rooms so far, the summaries of which are below:
1. Mr. Keller’s Magic Emporium, a place where fun never dies.
You’ve applied for jobs all over town but nowhere is hiring… you. You've even tried the quaint toyshop downtown, run by the enigmatic ‘Mr. Keller’. A few days later you receive a letter in the post; it’s Keller inviting you back for a job interview, of sorts. He’s left you a series of tasks and puzzles; if you can complete them in 60-minutes or less then the job is all yours. If not, well that's your own bad luck.
2. House on the Hill – Salem, MA
There's been talk of witchcraft ever since a mysterious illness struck the town of Salem. Hysteria is setting in and fingers are itching to be pointed. Margret Coulter-Rose has been seldom seen since the death of her husband and daughter It's said that an evil presence pervades the House on the Hill. It's said that the devil has crept in. The town elders have sent you into the house to find enough evidence of witchcraft to bring Margret to trial.
Be warned though; Margret doesn't take too kindly to visitors anymore, and the old house, with it's creaks and groans, is said to be even less accommodating.
The Keller’s room is based on the room of the same name at Escape Room Melbourne, but with a few changes designed by Mitch and Michael. The House on the Hill is their own design.
I’m hoping to get down to Canberra over the Christmas/summer break to check out their new rooms.
