Ripper – Augmented Reality Escape Room

Using the latest in location-aware technology & augmented reality, you’ll have to solve the clues & track the killer… before he catches you.

A serial killer is loose on the City Streets – and they are picking off seemingly unconnected victims at random.

You’ve got to use the existing case files, your instincts and whatever clues you can find to connect the victims and identify the killer.

Ripper is apparently the world’s first AR escape room experience. They’re running one-day only events in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide for a maximum of 250 people. The website isn’t particularly clear, but they have a FAQ with more information here and Melbourne tickets are onsale here at a cost of $100 per person. Sydney tickets go onsale tomorrow and you can sign up to the waitlist now.

Although the tickets are quite expensive, I’m definitely booking mine tomorrow! I love the idea of using AR to enhance an escape room activity, and having to identify the killer before they find me is equal parts terrifying and exciting! Once the killer gets within ten metres of you your game is over, so there’s a real sense of danger and urgency that isn’t present in a traditional escape room.

Are you planning to check it out? Have you done something similar before? Think it’s a terrible idea and nothing will ever beat a traditional escape room? Let me know.

  1. Hi! It appears that this event was fraudulent. They advised all ticketholders would receive a refund but this has not happened. Please contact your band if a refund was not processed.
