Pwoah, Rush Escape Game don't fuck around, do they?

Rush Escape Game’s Hacksaw and Hacksaw II are Melbourne escape rooms in Hawthorn, Richmond and South Yarra with a very distinctive, horror-themed take on the concept.

“Rise and shine, my friends. You’re probably wondering where you are. I’ll tell you where you might be. You might be in the room that you die in. What do the wicked see when they look into the mirror? I see you as pathetic. So are you going to watch yourself die here today, or do something about it?

Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around Melbourne here.

“I trust that you are all wondering where you are. I can assure you that while your location is not important, what these walls offer for you is important – redemption, if you earn it. The furnace is already burning and in one hour’s time this house will ignite. You believed you were free, free from your guilt, free from your shame, free from the consequences of your lies.

“You believed that no one had seen the truth.
I am always watching.
You have one hour.
Find redemption or face true justice.
The choice is yours.
There will be blood.”

That’s how Rush Escape Game markets their new escape room experiences, Hacksaw and Hacksaw II, that are happening in Richmond, Hawthorn and South Yarra respectively over the next few weeks.

It’s an obvious nod to the Saw franchise and recommended for 15-years and above, with people with pacemakers specifically requested to contact the venue before booking.

If this is the way escape rooms are heading, we have to admit, we’re a little intrigued. The Hawthorn venue is a limited time pop-up, find out info about it all here.
