I was super excited to try this out during my trip to Melbourne but have since advised friends and family to give it a miss.

The staff were super friendly, responded to enquiries the same day and booking was easy but that's where it stops.

The room we were in was not really decorated except for a few hand made or second hand things on white walls. There was zero atmosphere really and just so average.

Dissapointed and felt the $70 odd dollars for the two of us could have been better spent elsewhere. Rating 2 out of 5 because of nice staff but otherwise definately a 1.

Hi Rhyanna. We appreciate all customer feedback and are pleased to hear that you found our staff friendly. Looking though our booking system it appears that you played the casino theme in early June. We agree there is one wall in all of the sub rooms in that theme that has a blank white wall (and there is another challenge to be added there). The other casino rooms all have authentic props including a genuine roulette table sourced from an Australian casino and other cutaway tables. It also contains custom made video effects and sound throughout each sub room. The final sub room has a new feature being added at the moment (including smoke machine without giving too much away). Obviously you had a bad experience and we will check that staff followed the correct room setup process on the day (including setting up music effects correctly which substantially adds to the game atmosphere). We hope you consider returning to try an alternative room at Port Melbourne or at our new Richmond venue (8 new themes) next time you are in Melbourne. Regards Exitus Management.

We saw this activity on trip advisor and decided to go along based on the reviews. It was a fantastic experience we ended up doing three different rooms. It was addictive and the highlight of our trip to Melbourne. We will be doing the other rooms on our next visit! This was fun and stimulating, the best thing I've done in a very long time,

Really nice place, the games are awesome and just like in a ipad escape game. The staff are helpful when needed but not very friendly, that can be improved!

I was responsible for organising a social event for everyone at work which also had some form of team building element involved. Exitus turned out to be the perfect choice - catered for our small group of 12 (can cater for up to 40 I think), made us work and think as a team, but was also great fun at the same time. Everyone walked away having enjoyed themselves and were amazed at the creativity of this unique entertainment venue. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a team building activity
