Can you give me a one minute introduction to The Escape Hunt Experience? Of course! The Escape Hunt Experience is a unique adventure based on the classic “escape the room” online games now popular in many parts of the world, including Asia.
Originally, these were online point and click flash computer games such as Myst and Crimson Room. They were then made into real life games in Japan from around 2007. Players are locked in a simple room with objects and little decoration and feel like being inside a computer game while searching for clues and solving puzzles and ultimately trying to escape.
This idea spread to other places and The Escape Hunt Experience is proud to take inspiration from these great games while offering something totally unique and be part of live escape games worldwide as listed in escapefan.com. We offer a true “experience” like a mini theme park where you are transported back over 100 years and play the part of a famous London detective with your colleagues trying to solve a murder mystery. As a team you play against the clock in one of our rooms to discover the murderer’s identity and thereby find your escape. Our adventures last around 90 minutes, as after the 60 minute game you can chat about your experience in our luxurious lounge area over a cup of tea and then dress up in period costume for photos.
Our experience is unique and unlike any other interactive adventure game anywhere in the world. We offer many unique features such as the fact that our games are available to closed groups from 2 players up to 5 players in your own private room. You also have a dedicated game master to play with you and help you when needed, and then of course all the post-game entertainment is truly an experience in its own right.
We are open everyday except Wednesday (unless for Corporate Team Building or parties with prior reservations) with our first game at 9.30am and the last game at 8.00pm every day. We take groups from 2–5 players, or more players can play against each other in other game rooms. We also host fantastic corporate events. Prices vary by group size and we only admit children of 7 years old and over; also there must always be at least one person over 16 years playing. Most of all it is fantastic fun for all ages and ability levels, giving you memories you will treasure for many years!
