Full Refunds are guarunteed for any appointments booked that end up being during a Victorian DHS-ordered Lockdown.
Book knowing you'll get your money back without delay if a Victorian lockdown prevents you attending.
We remain closed from 15 July - 3 Dec 2021.
The months of Oct and Nov will be a difficult period as Victoria transitions from unvaccinated to vaccinated.
Our venues will remain closed to the public during this time but we are working hard on new designs and experiences behind the scenes. We appreciate everyone's patience and look forward to sharing these new experiences and re-opening soon.

Adding extra people before you arrive If you notify in writing by email or web submission us 30 minutes or more before your booking we can add extra persons. The price will be the balance between what you now owe and what you have already paid so far. Different prices apply to persons that turn up on the day without notifying us in advance (See below).
Adding extra people at-the-door on the day Your booking will be delayed by 5-15 minutes if you turn up with extra persons on the day without notifying us. Your operator will email you an invoice which you can pay online (via your smart phone). The price at-the-door on-the-day is not the online rate. The price will be the same as all other persons have paid. Please note: We do not accept cash on the day & we do not have payment facilities.
Do you take cash? No, all our reservations and payments are online by PayPal, Credit or Debit Card or Bank Transfer.
Do you do special requests? Yes, just contact us in advance to arrange (eg hidden present/message).
Is it hot and stuffy? No. The rooms are air conditioned/heated to maintain a comfortable temperature.
I'm Claustrophobic: Is it okay? Sure. There are no tunnels, booths or tight corridors. This escape room is one of the largest in Victoria. Attending as just a pair will also help.
Are we in the dark a lot? No, there are no torches and all the stages are well lit. You also have control of the light switches.
Will it be safe? Yes - we take safety seriously.
Will we be grouped with others? No. Your booking reserves the whole room for you and your team.
Can I change the number of people attending? Under current restrictions the limit is two persons to maintain 1.5m distancing.
Can I transfer my booking to others? No, bookings are non-transferable. You may change the people attending as long as the original person who booked remains.
Can I Cancel? Yes. With seven days notice or more and you will receive a full refund (or voucher reactivation). Bookings cancelled with less than seven days notice receive no refund unless at the discretion of management.
Do you sell Vouchers? No. We are still accepting redemptions.
Parking There are three off-street car parks and one on-street car park.
How long does the Experience take? Each experience usually takes around one hour.
Arrival You should arrive 5-10 minutes early but no earlier than 15 minutes prior to your scheduled start time.
What if we get stuck on a puzzle? If you get stuck you may ask for a clue via a radio (we don't assist unless asked).
How will you know where we are? Unrecorded surveillance is used to monitor your safety and progress.
Can we take photos? No. Pictures and recordings are not permitted.
Does the experience require any skill or general knowledge? The puzzles are intuitive and do not require any technological, academic or physical expertise. We do recommend bringing reading glasses if you have them.

Is there secure storage? Yes - your items can be stored securely inside the escape room with you at all times.
Can we bring food and drink? Food and drink is not permitted within the escape room. Bottled water is ok.

Problems? Questions? You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do we hand out Donations to Clubs or Charities? In place of donations we offer the opportunity for you to host a fundraiser event with us, for which we donate a portion of the proceeds back to you. To find out more click here.

Pets / Smoking The entire property is a no-pets and smoke-free zone.
Is the escape room within a residence? Many businesses such as medical clinics, hair dresser and accountants operate with a residence attached at the rear of the venue and Escape Room Geelong - The Mad Scientist® is the same. The entrance to the Escape Room is at the front of the venue so you will not pass through, hear or see the residence at any stage.
Is it legitimate? Yes. Much time and care has been taken to ensure the Escape Room is professional, safe and compliant.
