New generation escape room to open in Melbourne

New generation escape room to open in Melbourne
August 15, 2016

Leading out-of-home entertainment innovator Funlab is enhancing its Melbourne Central Strike Bowling venue with a new generation escape room concept.

Strike Bowling operator Funlab has partnering with Cubescape, a small Melbourne-based multimedia entertainment company, to enhance its Exitus escape room concept.

Similar to standard escape rooms, Cubescape games are based on the simple premise of a team of two to six people playing a challenging and interactive game in a single room over 50 minutes.

Therein, the team have to work together to find hidden objects, crack clues and beat the clock to escape the room.

However, Cubescape games use of artificial intelligence technology to make the escape room experience more immersive by automatically adapting itself to the gamers’ skill level throughout the game.  

For those struggling to crack clues, the room will help out with hints in real time.

Much like the gameplay, the scoring is also intuitive, at the end of your session, gamers will receive a printed customised ranking based on the speed, the number of clues used and each individual’s level of contribution and teamwork.

Strike’s Group Operations Director Blaise Witnish explains “we’re really excited to introduce Exitus, powered by Cubescape to Melbourne Central.

“Cubescape is a world first and we feel it will give customers the best escape room experience out there.

“Tailoring to each team member’s strengths/weaknesses the room lends itself to giving the satisfaction of cracking a clue, even if it has altered it to suit you. It requires cooperation, communication, concise and clever thinking, and a whole lot of fun, so it’s the perfect way to take the tediousness out of corporate events or team building activity.”

Strike  Melbourne Central also offers 10 bowling lanes, an immersive laser tag arena and on display music videos, as well as a cocktail bar.
