Cluedo Experience @ Old Melbourne Gaol
Warder White, in Cell 13, with the lead pipe!
Step back in time to solve a mysterious murder, in this world-first event that brings the iconic board game Cluedo to life.
The Old Melbourne Gaol Cluedo Experience is an immersive adventure puzzle game for all ages. Dodgy lawyer Lionel Grey was found dead at the Gaol in 1924, but authorities never cracked the case. Now it's up to you!
Search the Gaol's darkest corners for clues, studying alibis of colourful crims, examining physical evidence, and scanning weapons for DNA. Using your smarts and the help of modern technology, can you discover WHO killed Grey, WHERE he was killed, and with WHAT weapon? The murder may be fictional, but the fun is very real!
The Old Melbourne Gaol Cluedo Experience runs for a strictly limited time, commencing 27 June 2020.
