Owned and designed by Carolyn, Locked in Escape Rooms in Mornington will no doubt immerse via her realistic set design. Her elaborate set design was inspired by her experience in theatre, where she also learnt the vital skill of constructing creative plot lines that truly engage the players. Madame Jarvier Fortune Teller was Carolyn’s first escape room venture. The now retired room included sensory inputs and a variety of puzzles that required different skill sets to be employed to solve them. She feels it’s vital that tasks requiring a variety of skill sets are included so that everyone who attempts the room can have the chance to face a challenge. Carolyn said she watches as the players emerge from the game genuinely surprised by how captivated they were and how the time just flew by.

“The most rewarding aspect is the interaction I have with my customers. It is great to see them escape the room and experience the mutual joy of successfully completing the room,” Carolyn said. 

This Mornington resident holds a Bachelor of Education from the University of Melbourne and previously spent 20 years teaching vocational education and chemistry at Mornington Secondary College. Puzzles and puzzle design have always been a passion for Carolyn. Even as a teenager, she would find herself designing and building escape room-type challenges for her family and friends to solve. The minute she discovered that escape rooms had become a ‘thing’, she just knew she would be hooked.

Time is of the essence while completing an escape room challenge, and running a business is much the same. “The most challenging aspect is the time commitment that is required,” Carolyn said. “When you run a small business, the rest of your commitments keep going as well. It’s definitely a juggling act to balance work, family, and time for myself.”

What can we say — she’s mastering the challenge.
