Escape Room Game

Escape Room games are consistently ranked number 1 live game around the world (by TripAdvisor). La Trobe University Library decided to adapt this global phenomenon into an interactive learning game for students to learn key services throughout the library, as well as to promote team building and lateral thinking.

For the launch of the game, Triple J hosts Matt and Alex took on the challenge of  La Trobe University’s 'Escape Room at the Library' during their ‘O-Mazing Race’. The O-Mazing Race was a series of epic O-Week challenges across Australia which was supported by radio, social and online.  During O-Week prospective students, staff and general visitors were able to join in the Escape Room experience for free. Those that successfully escaped went into the running of winning prizes worth thousands of dollars.
