Meet The Team
Derek Lovell, a young entrepreneur behind everything at Horror Escape— the concepts, storylines, puzzles, the sets and even this website. His vision for Horror Escape came from a burning desire to create immersive and unforgettable entertainment and give another option for things to do in Victoria. Almost everything at Horror Escape is custom designed and created, including the props and the sets. Derek is a strong supporter of community, involving local artists, carpenters, and technicians in the process.
This is Lucas, charming, awkwardly funny and pretty damn smart! Lucas is Derek's right hand man, brainstorming new ideas to grow the company, running the show full time and being the main face to our business. He helped design aspects of our website with his coding skills and had design input for the exterior of The Doll Master.
Sydney has been with Horror Escape through the many changes and progressions we've made. She is passionate about technology and even created a custom tech prop for our Doll Master experience. We can always rely on Sydney for her positive attitude and tech/audio skills!
Alex is the star of the show, you won't recognize him behind our custom silicone Hollywood masks, but he sure takes a great picture. Alex is passionate about acting and really developing and getting into his roles. He plays 3 characters an evening at Horror Escape and works hard to thrill our guests on our select scare actor evenings.
Are we scary?
You will be solving a horror or mystery based narrative in an immersive setting, with dim lighting and dark soundtracks. Your experience is based around working together and solving puzzles to escape, our intention is for you to have fun, not to make you never come back! We offer a scare actor on select evenings, so not only will you be following the narrative and solving your way out, you'll have someone to escape from!
