To answer this now would give away the whole surprise so let’s just say it is one of the most exhilarating ways to spend 90 minutes with your friends.  The adventure lasts 60 minutes but you should arrive 10 minutes before for your briefing. Afterwards, we offer you refreshments and a time to discuss your experience with your fellow players and have a photo-taking session so allow 90 minutes in total.  The adventure itself involves solving a mystery, whether it’s finding lost treasure or discovering who is trying to kill a famous actress.  Solve the mystery and escape.  Sounds simple?  Just try!  We have 3 amazing games to choose from.

So how long does the adventure last?  Each adventure is 60 minutes long and you need to arrive 10 minutes before for the briefing.  Afterwards, having refreshments and doing a photo session will take around 30 minutes.

Can I play on my own?  Our games are all designed for 2 – 6 players and these are the recommended numbers of players but if you really want to play alone you can!  We are happy to accommodate you as a solo player but remember it will be hard work!  Please bear in mind you will be charged the minimum rate for 2 players.

So how many people should play?  We have tested all sorts of numbers but the ideal is a group of 2 – 6 players.  For this reason we are quite strict about these team sizes now as we want to ensure that each and every Escape Hunt experience is excellent.

Do we need to be really strong?  Physical strength is not needed at all.  We have designed our adventures to be as accessible for the most petite person to a body builder and every age group.  You need skills other than strength like good searching skills and logical reasoning.

Are there any age limits for Escape Hunt?  We have tried the adventures with all ages and it is equally enjoyable for all age groups.  For practical reasons, since this is a group activity and we need a certain level of maturity, we limit the minimum age to 5 years old but there is no maximum age.  We love kids but this is an adult game and therefore younger children really will not enjoy it. Also, there must be at least one player of 15 years or over playing in the room at all times.

Can a handicapped or wheelchair-bound person play the adventure too?  Yes, our adventures are even handicapped-friendly.  For reasons of safety and practicality, we only allow one person in a wheelchair to take part in each group as they need able-bodied helpers but there is no reason why they should not enjoy the experience as well.  All our doors have been designed to be wide enough.

Do I need to use English?  Yes, the whole The Escape Hunt Experience concept is in English. However our Game Masters are multi-lingual so they will be able to help if needed. The benefit of the multi-language game-play is that you do NOT need to all be fluent in English to play as a team as long as some members can read the English clues.

Will it be too difficult for me?  It all depends upon how well you follow the brief, work as a team and put your best effort into the adventure.  Each adventure is designed to be challenging, but not impossible. Our Game Masters are there to help you all the time as they play in the room with you.

What if I don’t “escape”?  Then you and your team are eaten alive.  Only kidding!  You will still enjoy yourself whether you escape in time or not; we will make sure of that!

Do I need to wear any special clothes or bring anything?  Please come in your usual clothes as we do not require any physical activity out of the ordinary.  It is your brain we are after so please make sure to bring that!  Otherwise, we provide everything.

Can I come back and play again?  Absolutely.  We have three entirely different adventures  and we change the adventures at regular intervals so you’ll be able to test your skills over and over again!
