Escape Rooms at Strike Melbourne Central

In the heart of Melbourne lies two of the most mind-bending and story-driven escape rooms around. Put your problem solving and tech-wiz skills to the test to bring a state-of-the-art AI system back online in Shutdown or escape the creaky lair of The Old Haunt where a ghostly presence resides, promising eternal life while hiding chilling tales.

1. Shutdown
Players: 2-6 | Age: 15+ (Adult Themes) | Difficulty: Medium

When IRIS, a world-first artificial intelligence system is compromised by an ex-Exodyne employee, you and your team must reboot the state-of-the-art system, crucial for the survival of the company. Using codes, clues, and sleight of hand you’ll need to hack into IRIS’s mainframe and reconnect the power before all systems are lost. But keep your wits about you, as the AI may not be all what it seems.

2. The Old Haunt
Players: 2-6 Age: 15+ (Adult Themes) | Difficulty: Easy

From a brisk countryside walk to suddenly seeking refuge from a storm, you find yourselves in the unfortunate confines of an abandoned, haunted mansion. With the presence of a ghostly spirit following your every move, you’ll need to use deductive reasoning, decipher dates, and search throughout the haunt for a way out. You may just survive, but not before unraveling the long and mysterious tale of this mansion and its ghostly dwellers.
