Escape The Gaol – Old Melbourne Gaol

January 26

The Old Melbourne Gaol has announced an all-new, limited edition experience exclusively for children these school holidays from Tuesday, December 26 2017 to Friday, January 26 2018.

Children are invited to participated in Escape the Gaol, an immersive and educational activity aimed at ages six and up. Participants will have the opportunity to become inmates and must explore the Gaol to discover all the necessary clues to create the perfect escape plan, without being discovered by the prison guards.

Each ‘prisoner’ will be given a notebook containing a number of riddles, which must be deciphered in order to receive directions to hidden clues. Once the clues are discovered, prisoners must secretly hunt through the Gaol to uncover the answers to pull off a fool-proof escape plan.

Tickets to the Old Melbourne Gaol are highly affordable, with tickets for one adult and two children only $48.

The Old Melbourne Gaol is open daily from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm, with the exception of Christmas Day and Good Friday. For more information visit the website or follow the Old Melbourne Gaol on Facebook or Instagram.
