Travelled all the way to Melbourne just to do the Alchemy escape room and it was totally worth it. It was our first escape room and it was a great one. We completely failed but they were nice enough to give us a little extra...More

Trapt is another Escape Room experience. I love these kinds of places. They're great for having a fun time with friends, family or work colleagues. The only criticism I'd have is that they have made the puzzles a little too hard and we only had...More

If you are looking to have a great time with some friends or work mates, you can't go passed Trapt. We received a gift voucher from some friends for the experience and had a fun time trying to save the world in the Espionage Room....More

The Wizard of Oz room was my first escape room and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Jamie, our gamesmaster, was an incredible help and a great bartender. Definitely would recommend, hope to return soon.More

If you, like me, go gaga on anything Harry Potter-related and found the Trapt Alchemy room via an Urban List or other internet articles... you will be extremely disappointed. There's NOTHING HP related other than the fact that you have to find a philosopher stone....More

Hi Soyola, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I am sorry that you feel that you have been misled as to the relationship between our Alchemy room and a series of books and movies relating to a student wizard. However,...More

On our recent visit to Melbourne we booked ourselves into a TRAPT room for the first time. It was definitely harder to work through the clues then we thought, but thanks to a few hints along the way and 5 minutes extra time we got...More

Not as good as other rooms, it was too dark to read numbers on the locks, lucky we had our phones for torches. Needed a pen and paper as well. Not many puzzles and we needed more than 50 minutes. For the money you want...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Hi Yinok, While it is not always necessary to book we do recommend booking through our website as it is impossible for us to guarantee the availability of a game if you do not.
