Escape rooms are a big thing right now. They’re a bloody great time and totally beat just sitting around with a beer. So, imagine our excitement when we heard that a Harry Potter-inspired escape room has arrived in Melbourne.
Now, when we say Harry Potter inspired, we don’t mean you’ll be rubbing shoulders with Harry, Hermione and Ron. But we do mean TRAPT have created a mystical world for you to explore and escape, called Alchemy. You will literally be ‘trapt’ until you work out a series of riddles in order to hunt down the mythical Philosopher's Stone.
To help you on your noble quest, there’s an epic bar with ‘Flying Cauldron’ non-alcoholic butterscotch beer (a brew for all ages) and all kinds of cocktails that would make any wizard proud. We’re talking the oh-so-potent ‘Exhibito Noctis’ with cardamom and blueberry-infused rum; the ‘Potion of Fire’ with spiced rum that’s bound to bring some fire to your belly; and the ‘Friends Philtre’, a zesty mix that was made for sharing.
TRAPT has various experiences running including Espionage, Prohibition and Wonderland, so you should probably book in for one of those too.
