TURNING ESCAPE ROOMS INSIDE OUT!

A group of Neo-Luddite terrorists calling themselves the "Freedom Club" have acquired a stolen ex-Soviet nuclear warhead on the black market.

Testimonials

Had an amazing time! Ended up solving the puzzle just barely after 2 attempts, but it was certainly hard. Had an absolute blast, could not recommended enough! Hope everyone gets the chance to try this out, I’m so glad one opened in Victoria!

Samantha Close

Very well designed. Challenging puzzles requiring a variety of approaches. Best of the three escape rooms I’ve done in town. A definite recommend.

Michael Greer

So much fun!!! Even though we didn’t manage to escape it was a great time!! I highly recommend going!

Ashley Murray

Had so much fun! Went with a group of 4 and would definitely reccomend bringing a larger group. Super interesting storyline, variety of different puzzles, and things to figure out! First time at an escape room and would definitely come back. The owner was friendly, helpful and made sure we had fun!

Michelle Hiscox

Had an absolute blast! Different puzzles to challenge different ways of thinking and perspectives. Looking forward to the next Arkham Saga story! A great way to spend an evening with friends.

Hugh Scaife

We had a group of 7 and we had such a blast! Although we didn’t manage to escape this time, we chose not to reveal the solutions at the end so that we have a chance to come back and play again. There were tons of puzzles to figure out, so even with a bigger group we were all kept very busy! Definitely would recommend this experience!

Morgan Fink

Very well designed. Challenging puzzles requiring a variety of approaches. Best of the three escape rooms I’ve done in town. A definite recommend.

Bookings

***ADVANCE BOOKING REQUIRED***

WE HAVE A 100% ZERO TOLERANCE FOR ANY FORM OF INTOXICATION

  • Minimum Booking: $100
  • All bookings are private.
  • All reservations are "first-pay-first-serve." We recommend booking for the minimum number of players you are certain will attend, in order to lock-down your preferred time slot. Additional players may be added as needed.
  • All reservations required at least a day in advance.
  • At least one adult must play all rooms; children under school age require special permission.
  • REFUND POLICY: There are no refunds, however all tickets are transferable and groups are welcome to postpone a game for any reason, with advance notice. No-shows without advance notice may not reschedule.
  • ZERO TOLERANCE FOR INTOXICATION: intoxicated players will be booted from premises without refund at staff discretion. Don't arrive drunk, doing an escape room without a clear head is about as S.M.R.T. as going swimming with steel-toed boots.  😉
  • YOU MUST READ AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS IN THE BOOKING CONFIRMATION EMAIL. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN THE END OF YOUR GAME WITHOUT REFUND.

Our Vaccine Policy

At Victoria Escape Games we do everything possible to keep our players and staff healthy during the global pandemic.

Escape rooms are about using your brains. Reason and rational thinking are the foundations of the scientific method and form the cornerstone of what escape rooms are about. Failure to follow the well-understood methods of science and critical thinking leads to ignorance and error. The anti-vaxx movement is a prime example of this.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but they are not entitled to their own facts. The two-centuries-old science of vaccinology is exhaustively studied and the facts around COVID are increasingly clear. The Delta variant is not only ravaging the unvaccinated, it is also capable of “breakthrough” infection of those who have done everything right and received full vaccination.

Much like drunk drivers, anti-vaxxers not only endanger themselves, they are a clear danger to everyone around them. Those who are eligible to be vaccinated but choose not to be—through ignorance, malice, or mere lazy negligence—place the health and well-being of the rest of us in jeopardy.

In a democracy, the rights of one person end where they infringe upon the rights of another. Therefore, effective immediately and until further notice, all voluntarily unvaccinated individuals are no longer welcome at Victoria Escape Games. All staff and players must be vaccinated if they are eligible. Those who fail to show proof when asked will be denied entry without refund. If you choose not to be vaccinated, PLEASE GO ELSEWHERE.

Those with medical exemptions are welcome. Children under 12-years are currently exempt, however once vaccines have been approved for them this policy will be expanded to include all age cohorts.

For those who have followed the science and been vaccinated, please rest assured that Victoria Escape Games remains a safe place for you, and an unwelcoming place for those who spread ignorance and disease to the communal detriment of all.

Sincerely,
The Management and Ownership
Victoria Escape Games

Mission briefing

Four years ago Professor Charles McMurdo of Miskatonic University disappeared from his home in sleepy Arkham, clouded by rumours of a dangerous mystery cult plotting to destroy the world. A year and a day later he resurfaced, spinning dark tales of a lost tomb in the jungle and foul rituals to banish an ancient enemy.

Now a temporal rift centred over the Professor’s study threatens to engulf all of Arkham. Can your team of experts defeat the professor’s wards and seal the rift before the city is pulled into the flux vortex?

To succeed you will need to select a group of SPIES operatives with a wide range of talents and experience. Choose your team and make ready to enter the missing professor’s study!

Coming soon only to Victoria Escape Games!

“The nightmare corpse-city of R’lyeh…was built in measureless eons behind history by the vast, loathsome shapes that seeped down from the dark stars. There lay great Cthulhu and his hordes, hidden in green slimy vaults.”
