No doors. No ceilings. No specific time slots. No hassle. That’s the CityDays way!

Urban Escape Rooms Melbourne: An Outdoor Extravaganza


We want to be where the fun is, and that’s right on your doorstep. Think about it - most of the world’s greatest adventures happened outside. 

Whether you’re a competitive champion or a sleuthing schemer, we want to give you the chance to unravel your city’s secrets once and for all - one challenge, riddle, and puzzle at a time.

Our escape room games in Melbourne aren’t like conventional escape rooms. Firstly, they take place outside - more on that later - but they’re also “built” to take you beyond the typical escape room experience. 

Here’s how…

Explore Melbourne Like Never Before

With our gamified Melbourne escape rooms, there’s no need to involve doors, walls or ceilings. Instead, you get to experience the thrill of solving puzzles and uncovering secrets, all while soaking in the beauty and history of Australia’s cultural capital. Our games are meticulously designed to lead you through Melbourne's iconic landmarks, allowing you to discover its rich heritage in the most interactive way possible.

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

Our escape rooms are more than just games; they're a unique opportunity to build bonds, foster teamwork, and create lasting memories with friends, family, or coworkers. Whether you're strategising to solve the next clue or racing against the clock, you'll find yourself working together in ways you never imagined. It's the perfect blend of fun, challenge, and collaboration.

Fun Under the Sun

We all know Melbourne’s weather is unpredictable, but you’re Melburnians, you can cope with four seasons in one day. Step outside the conventional indoor escape room and embrace the excitement of exploring Melbourne’s nooks and crannies. Feel the sun on your face and the wind in your hair as you navigate through the game. 

CityDays’ Outdoor Melbourne Escape Rooms: A Live-Action Game in Melbourne

So what exactly are our Melbourne escape room games? 

Imagine you and your team become the main characters in a dynamic, live-action game set in Melbourne CBD. Starting from a designated location, you'll embark on a journey, solving puzzles, overcoming challenges, and deciphering riddles until you reach your final destination.

But there's much more to it than just that.

You'll uncover Melbourne's urban mysteries, delve into its history, and engage with its vibrant culture. You'll collaborate with your team to tackle puzzles, riddles, and challenges that strengthen your bonds. You'll face puzzles that demand input from the entire team to solve. You'll interact with Melbourne's laneways and immerse yourself in the city's atmosphere.

And the best part? You'll have a fantastic time discovering Melbourne's hidden secrets and uncovering some of its treasures with your favourite people.

Our games are designed to encourage more people to venture outdoors, explore their environment, and, most importantly, have fun

We turn cities into playgrounds, crafting routes and puzzles from scratch that test your puzzle-solving abilities, teamwork, and observational skills, all based on the city's unique character.

Your goal is to unravel the puzzles, challenges, and cryptic clues we've laid out for you.

How Our Outdoor Escape Rooms Melbourne Work


Our outdoor Melbourne escape "rooms" offer a fresh twist on the classic escape room concept, focusing on exploration and teamwork in the open air rather than confinement. 

Here's a quick guide to how it works:

Preparation: Our games are outdoor adventures, so dress accordingly and be ready for some walking. We've selected spots for optional breaks at cosy cafes and bars along the way which are totally optional, but handy if you need a time out.

Getting Started: Choose your adventure, and we'll send the starting location via WhatsApp. You can begin the game at your convenience (as long as it’s daylight, you can play whenever it suits you!).

The Game: You'll receive tasks, puzzles, and riddles through WhatsApp, each pointing to the next clue hidden in the city's landscape—from street art to plaques, road signs and much, much more! Success hinges on teamwork; every clue solved unlocks the next step in your journey.


Progressing Through the Game: Only correct answers allow you to advance. Each puzzle solved leads you closer to your next destination, with each spot a short walk away. Stay alert for additional clues along the way…you never know what might be hiding in plain sight! 

Finishing Up: Complete all tasks and reach the end of the trail, we'll calculate your score based on accuracy, time penalties, and hints used. We’ll let you know how your team did, and you can let us know how much fun you had! And if you reach the top of our leaderboard, you could win a prize… 

Any questions? Here’s how it works.
