From lead to gold: The Alchemist’s Lab opens its doors at Adelaide’s Fringe Festival in Australia

From the US, Escape Room Treasure Hunt has designed an escape room that will appear during the Adelaide Fringe Festival. The Alchemist’s Lab introduces participants to a Victorian era laboratory that is rumoured to have discovered the ultimate goal in alchemy: transmutation of an element. Scotland Yard will group its detectives (participants) into groups of twelve to find out the alchemist’s secret formula by digging through the laboratory’s secret puzzles and codes.

The alchemist in question, Devon Melton Plumbum will not be in his lab for the next hour and this would be the perfect time to find out what he is up to. Will you escape with the alchemist’s gold or be left holding lead in your hands?

The whole alchemist adventure takes 90 minutes, with 60 minutes of game play along with 15 minutes at the start and end of the game for debrief.

Also the Adelaide Fringe Festival mentions on their website the actual escape room is built into a trailer which has been styled Victorian era. Interesting to note is, “all equipment, locks and puzzles … use only technology available in the period, wherever possible”.
